  1. Remove prototype border

    Is there a way to get rid of that default annoying grey border in shared prototypes? What's the purpose? It doesn't appear when viewed on laptop, why it's showing on mobile?

    I have a black background design of a mobile app. When viewed on a mobile phone it really impacts the overall experience and generates confusion (is it intentional?).

  3. Pinning a comment after it's been submitted

    When writing a comment on a prototype it's really easy to hit "return" and submit the comment. After the fact I actually meant to pin the comment to the artboard. Presently I have to copy the comment, delete it, then paste into a new comment then click "Pin to artboard". It would be nice to have a button in edit mode or next to the edit button where I can pin the comment to the artboard after I've submitted it.

  4. Show text elements associated with a character style in the Assets panel

    Style Guide - Rollover Highlighting

    With the release of v. 0.8.22, when you rollover a style in the "Character Styles" listing, it should highlight all elements in the project that use that style. Inversely, if I click on an object that uses that style, it should highlight the style.

    The current implementation means we have repeat entries if two usages share the same stylings, but could deviate in the future, because the use case is different.

  5. "Guideline Mode" (Design Guidelines)

    Add a "Guideline Mode" in addition to the prototype mode and design mode. This would be a content area of speficications like color schemes, used fonts, symbols and other visuals etc. It would be good to have a basic content template for the most typical things like color palette etc. but make it also possible to add custom content.

    This functionality would help to work on the design in teams and to communicate the design fundamentals to customer and developers.

  6. How To: for new features

    This suggestion actually is for you guys on this Feature Request Board.

    You guys have been so hard at work enabling features and when I search for them I see the bright green text saying the feature has been published. And Elaine does a great job of telling when the feature is available.

    The issue is that I don't quite know how to use the new feature or see it's effects. Is there a way to see a quick animated screen grab of the feature so i know how to use the feature you guys have now implemented?

  8. Consumers of shared prototypes tend to use arrows instead of using interactions

    I have been using XD a lot and have been publishing prototypes for developers and stakeholders.

    I have found that more often than not they are using the bottom page scroll more than using the clickable links inside the prototype.

    This is causing confusion when the workflow isn't linear as they are view the prototype as a slideshow instead of an interactive prototype.

  9. Keep Layer name while converting them into a Symbol

    It would be great if XD stops renaming the Layers when you convert them into a symbol.

    XD should be working this way now — if you select a single object (layer) and create a Component, the component name will be taken from that object’s name.

    If you select multiple objects at once to make a Component you’ll still get a generic name, but you can rename it in the Assets panel afterward.

  10. Display light symbols better in the panel

    Better way of displaying white icons within the symbol panel, so they are visible on a white background

  11. Make the official XD software FREEMIUM

    Right now XD is free to use, but eventually it has to make money for Adobe. From that perspective, Adobe can consider making it a freemium product. This will help address the scenario where large organisations cannot afford buying XD for all of their developers. Yet for the designers to use XD professionally there needs to be a practical way to seamlessly hand-over the XD designs to the developers.

    The full-fledged version of XD with all features can be no doubt purchased for the designers within the organisations. However the developers can still access the XD files using the free…

  12. Zoom to the top of selected artboard

    Description:
    When we press ⌘+0 XD zooms out to bird's-eye view. It would be useful to zoom back in to a selected artboard when press ⌘+1 or ⌘+2. But not to the empty grey back ground as it may happen now in the compositions like these (image attached).

    Why is this valuable to you:
    You will be able to switch between different artboards instantly. Even if they're more than 50. Vey easy to navigate and find necessary pages.

    Additional request:
    When zoom to a selected artboard, zoom not just to the center of it, but to the top side (image…

    feature-completed  ·  Tom Krcha responded

    You can now select the artboard and hit CMD+3 and it will zoom to the selected artboard.

  13. Drag n drop images from a browser

    Is it me or does the app currently not support drag n drop from the web browser into app, for example an image into a art board or shape, I have to save it to the desktop top first then drag n drop it.

  14. Drag Images from PSD or AI

    I would like to be able to drag Images from other apps. Currently I can copy and paste text and shapes, but images don't transfer. In order to get images to XD I have to drag an image file outside of photoshop or illustrator. I would like to drag them from the AI or PSD file as well.

    In the current version of Adobe XD, you should be able to copy and paste Photoshop layers complete with transparency into XD. You should also be able to copy-paste Illustrator selections that include raster images.

    If you find that’s not working for you and your copy of XD is fully up to date, please file a bug in UserVoice with specifics about the type of content you’re copy-pasting and what’s not working — if you can share a file with us that shows the problem, that’s even better.

    Thanks!

  15. Cropping containers

    Rectangles and ellipses can be marked as "cropping". Such cropping containers will apply a cropping mask on anything put inside it. This should be a reversible behavior.

  17. Deselect Home Artboard

    Need the ability to 'deselect' the home artboard.

    Issue: If I create a prototype with links to the home artboard I can share everything linked to home.

    If I then need to remove all connectors so none of the pages were linked, but I still want to publish all artboards, it won't allow me to do it. Only the home artboard is selected.

    Basically, once you have physically selected the home artboard by clicking the home icon (rather than having XD do it by default when you create your first board) then you're done! Only one screen can be published…

  18. Enable saving documents locally for Starter plan

    "Starting from April 2020, these features that are currently a part of Adobe XD ...
    Saving to your computer, though you can still save to cloud documents."

    Feature request: Don't remove local saving. Why would you do this? What possible benefit does this have for me as a user? Why would I choose to use a service that doesn't let me save my work locally?

  19. CC Libraries: Increase asset preview size, sort, and custom background

    Please, add functionalities to CC Libraries like:
    - change file preview: large icons view with name, details view with names and other information;
    - possibility to sort the file by name, date, last modified,....;
    - possibility to have a default or customizable background to turn on and off;

    I would like to put on your attention the worst case for me: the large icons view works fine only with coloured icons, not with white icons, because of the white background (that depends on the artboards) doesn't allow to me to see a white icon, and without the names of the…

  20. Change color for all artboards

    If you have a color palette and need to change a color a little you need to change the color for every layer with the old color again.

    It would be nice to have a set color palette and if you change one of these colors all layers with the old color get updated.
