  1. Allow Cmd/Ctrl + D keyboard shortcut to duplicate selected object

    Identical to the functionality of Adobe Illustrator (i.e. learned behavior,) allow users to select an object and use the keyboard shortcut Cmd/Ctrl + D to duplicate that object after initial copy & paste (or Alt + Drag.)

    Your Repeat Grid functionality is handy if I already know the exact dimensions & gutters I need, but when I don't have that info it's actually faster and more efficient to use Cmd/Ctrl + D to duplicate.

  2. Put the prototype as an app on the mobile screen

    Save the prototype cell phone screen as if it were really an app and share it with anyone you want. Marvel has this option.

  3. [Windows] Expand interaction pop-up target window to display the entire artboard name

    When there's a lot of artboards it's hard to zoom out and drag target destinations. I'd like to be able to select a target artboard from the dropdown menu. But the dropdown has a max-width so it can't show the complete artboard name.

    Request: Do not truncate artboard names in target dropdown.

  4. XP-Pen Artist 12 pen display monitor for vector drawing

    Hello,Grateful for some help.

    I am using the latest, updated version of Photoshop under W10 Pro 64bit and my XP-Pen equipment is an DECO 01 tablet with grip and passive pens.I buy it from their offical site.

    I am using the latest Nvidia and Wacom drivers, and W10, are up to date. I have 32Gb ram and a Core i3-8100 cpu.

    but I was never able to get rid of that eye-hand coordination issue and I would end up frustrated whenever I would draw on my computer.I would never draw as good as on paper. so i want a tablet…

    Since we haven’t heard from you in the past four months, I’m closing this as inactive. Please do feel free to file again if you think this is applicable to Adobe XD. If you’re interested in Photoshop, please feel free to file in that forum or in their UserVoice instance.

  5. Repeat Grid Problem

    There is a major flaw in repeat grid. Once a complex element is repeated with this feature, I can no longer add layers to various elements. This often makes it impossible for me to modify this element without ungrouping, deleting the repeated items, making the changes and then re-doing the repeat. This is annoying and really complicates my work flow.

    There needs to be someway to allow me to make any changes I need to within a repeat grid including adding additional layers or bringing other layers in.

  6. Line editing function like InVision

    The line editing function suggests to increase the midpoint capture, otherwise it is too inconvenient, which may become an important reason for me to go to InVision.

  7. Combining Files to Make one XD File (with actions)

    It would be great to combine files that includes actions into one file. Often, projects are huge and it would be helpful to combine files without copying over the art boards and losing the actions from the copied & pasted design altogether. It's frustrating to start over when we should be able to simply copy and paste while having the design and actions move over as well.

  8. Posting XD file direct to our website not to ADOBE

    I hope that we can make the design on XD like a presentation with buttons that can take you from page to page and simply post it on our website directly without the need to make an Adobe link in order to see it and by this way we can even send it to our client as a link to our site directly

  9. SVG Exporting issue

    Hi Everyone,

    I was just wondering if you guys are thinking about developing more advanced SVG exporting function.

    We can always export in high res png but when trying to use these png's to animate and design more advanced interaction in After effetcs, the resolution drops a lot and when I try to export in svg format, masks and intersected paths get completely displaced.

    Hope you guys look it up in the near future.

    Thank you
    Osama

  10. See Asset Name on Canvas

    There should be a way to see the name of an asset on the Canvas. Currently there is no way to know the name of any asset (or in the case of colors and text styles, if an asset has even been applied) with out locating the asset in the panel and selecting "highlight all on canvas". This is very inefficient. A simple tooltip hover or shortcut (like alt to display measurments) would simplify the process.

  11. Global/Mirror artboards decide where to render

    Idea is how we can use artboard like navigation bar again and again. Example navbar-artboard can be set to render Artboard A and B top and on A side it is fixed when B side it is not. But If you make changes to navbar itself, example the menu items then the both changes will be mirrored to artboards A and B.

    Another change is how we can prototype changes to wanted artboard. Lets say we have 3 artboards: MainWindow, Navbar and Popup. I can set into Navbar to mirror on MainWindow then I can prototype Popup to Navbar to…

  12. Selecting layers

    Uma das minhas funções preferidas no photoshop é poder selecionar camadas de usando CTRL + Click. Assim eu posso trabalhar de forma mais livre ao arrastar objetos pelo palco. Gostaria dessa função disponível no XD.

  13. Make "Constrain Width and Height Proportions" Actionable.

    "Constrain Width and Height Proportions" setting is not remembered in an Action. Therefore, the Action will perform incorrectly if this setting has been changed since the Action was run. Make this option controllable within the Action.

  16. Random

    I would like XD to be more like a lean version of illustrator. Why would you try a MeToo app of Sketch. Sketch is beta junk and only is relevant if you buy 15 plugins to make it do what? Act more like illustrator. Super short sighted team. Just lose all the 3d tools, iso drawing, brushes, filters and blending and stuff like that and you will have something meaningful. Keep the OWL man! What are you thinking? How many years have you implemented feedback on illustrator? Damn near 30 years. And all out with the bathwater DUMB.

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re very carefully considering the needs of our targeted designers and only including features that would benefit them in UX and UI design. If you have specific feature feedback you’d like to see, please do upvote stories in UserVoice.

  17. More information on website

    Put info on downloading on your website. WHY use a link sent via email? I use a web-based email so that option was not available. I had to use chat to find out that ould download XD through the CC app on my Mac. Your agent was very good, but a little thought on your website designers would have made that unnecessary.

  18. Adobe XD website and XD webpage

    OMG. have just rebuilt my SurfacePro4 last App to install Acrobat - thought I'd surf other products, got on https://www.adobe.com/products/xd.html#x
    Might have considered the product except:
    1. Video would not play in tab, new tab or new window;
    2. Then when tried to give feedback, talk about a NON-intuitive page.

    Will be looking else where for video editing, website Dev. Already use Adobe forms and am very UNCOMFORTABLE how Adobe is the focus of web-forms we send out, not US.

    Not a good look adobe, Not a good look.

  19. various functions missing

    to work fluid with this tool i miss various things:


    1. its hard to work with the paragraph-styles. when i click on a text the connected style should light up. i never know which style i am working on. also it looses connection to the style when changing color. do it like indesign - there it works perfectly.


    2. when placing an image, XD shoul make a connection to the image and not implement it. because if i use the same picture multiple times and change something in the original, i have to place the image again in every position.


    3. when placing…

    Thanks a ton for your feedback! Unfortunately, filing many different ideas together makes it very difficult for us to aggregate your feedback with other people who might have similar ideas. The good news is: most, if not all, of your ideas are already in the database and just need to be upvoted. For instance:
