  3. Warn me when I start modifying a symbol

    It is easy forgotten which graphics is a symbol and which is not. I ran into a large rework by revising a graphic size which was a symbol used across multiple screen sizes. UX should warn me that I am about to edit a symbol similar how Adobe Illustrator does. Moreover, I should be able so see how many instances of a symbol and where one is being used.

    Searching for a symbol can be another improvement.

  4. Which size XP-Pen Artist drawing tablet should I buy?

    I have a fifteen inch XP-Pen Artist 15.6 ( I buy it from https://www.amazon.co.uk/Artist15-6-1920x1080-Graphics-Drawing-Battery-free/dp/B0785682VP ). I want to use it for drawing (love to draw people, nature, animals and sometimes abstract), graphic design and editing photos. I do want to have accuracy. I've read that small would be good because it all depends on the screen size in comparison to the actual tablet, but I've also read that you can get more accuracy with a slightly larger tablet. such as XP-Pen Artist22E ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Artist22E-Graphic-Interactive-Shortcut-Adjustable/dp/B01M28DHOA )I don't mind moving my hand a bit for accuracy. I've called best buy and all…

  5. Lock Aspect Ratio of Shapes Made Using the Drawing Tool - PDF X-Change Editor

    Allow user to lock aspect ratio of a shape user has drawn so that when the scale needs to be changed, the shape proportions remain constant. I outline the shapes of land parcels using PDF X-Change Editor and the shape goes wonky when I try to reduce the size. This feature is built into Microsoft Word where you create the shape and then check a box to lock the aspect ratio. As you can tell, I am not a tech person, so I am trying to describe this in real life words.

  7. Command + 0 on selected artboard

    I would like the feature that I believe all/most have... when I have an artboard selected I want to be able to hit command + 0 and it zooms in full screen on just the single artboard selected!

  8. Shared prototype relative rendering (e.g. page jump when navigating)

    When sharing a prototype with different height pages the web rending tries to fit as much as the page as possible leading to odd rendering when navigating across pages. Screens that are the same width should render from the top left-hand corner down - so if a long page is present scrolling is used, if a short page it will render as much and stop (not scale to fill the area) this way common elements of the screen (navigation) are always in the same place. having the same size artboard should not be needed - only a common width should…

  9. Convert point text to paragraph

    It would be great to convert point text to paragraph text like in PS.

    Bonus: Paragraph text should behave similarly like in InDesign.

  10. Help system

    Why is there no complete help system for XD? Seems very strange to release a product without one.

  11. Features

    Dashed lines more control over stroke and dash

    Plug ins like Sketch so more flexibility for adding common elements such as buttons users details. A content generator so don't have to use lorem ipsum.

    Also a spell checker as no designer can spell (ok most)

    Grids - for the love of Grid add them in

    More options for Text including CAPS and Lowercase etc

  13. Tutorial narrator speaks and moves through steps too quickly

    You need to slow down your tutorials the speaker and the walkthrough of the concepts is way to fast. Not allowing some people a break to actually complete the tasks while watching. e.g. a noive such as myselff

    As we haven’t seen any activity on this issue in three months, I’m marking it as inactive. Please do feel free to file it again if you’re still experiencing it! Also, please feel free to use the pause button while going through the tutorial so that you can follow up!

  14. Make options for Windows

    This software will never be really enjoyable for Windows users until you ADD ALL THE FUNCTIONALITY TO OUR SIDE. For now it feels easier to design in Illustrator. Stop building out the Apple version and work on building the Windows version already.

    I know it’s frustrating. We’re building on a very new version of the Windows platform (UWP), and when things are very new sometimes they take a little longer than expected.

    We are very actively working on Windows support in XD. To help us prioritize that support though, we need you to upvote the specific individual features you are missing on Windows (rather than just filing an “everything” request like this one). For example:

    - Zeplin integration on Windows: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/33045610-zeplin-integration-on-windows
    - Preview window recording: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/18890884-record-video-from-preview-window-on-windows-like (though note the Windows-G shortcut lets you do screen recording in any app on Windows 10!)
    - Live mobile device preview: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/17453770-tethered-usb-mobile-device-preview-on-windows

  15. Webdesign additionals


    • Guidelines (for alignment horizontally and vertically) -> for making designs based on bootstrap framework columns

    • Text super- and subscript -> for prices in a webshop ,00 often is shown in super-
      or subscript.

    • Text strikethrough -> often used for old prices in webshops

    I think everything listed here is covered by other feature requests already, so I’ll close this. Please upvote these items instead:

    - Guidelines: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14160453-guides
    - Superscript/subscript: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14844018-superscript-subscript
    - Strikethrough: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15113031-strikethrough-crossed-out-text

    In the future, please help us by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion and upvoting existing requests where possible. Thanks!

  16. Be more like Sketch

    Seriously,

    How hard is it to just pay for Sketch and try it out. Annotate all the features that are missing in XD and are in Sketch (that's gonna take a while) and then put some people on it and get those features in XD.

    You can call it stealing features but you either do that or you'll lose all your customers you decide. Like how hard is it to build a big enough team to get some Sketch features to XD. Imagine that Adobe, you have everything that Sketch has but then you start to add features it doesn't…

    Thanks for your feedback. We’re trying to forge our own path and create an ecosystem for XD. That being said, if there are features that you are interested in, please do upvote the individual requests in the database!

  17. PRINCIPLE

    XD Potentially good, but it lacks a lot.
    Many tools and functions, many useful already present in Photoshop and illustrator.

    Which:
    - CSS copy - (present in Ai Ps)


    • Photo mask - (iD Ai Ps)
      Indesign has a very immediate and fast mask system for images.
      At the moment it is present in XD but you have to go to the menu, create a shape etc.
      It is not present in the right tastro.


    • Text formatting


    • Animations / Interaction
      Animation and interaction system XD is ridiculous. Look at Principle or other similar ones.


    • Fast export of PNG or SVG (Ps…

    Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, this is about seven or eight different feature requests, which makes it very difficult to aggregate with others. It makes it very difficult for your feedback to bubble to the top, and we want to make sure you’re heard.

    Most of these are already feature requests in our database. I’ve looked up a few for you:

  18. Don't take it too far Adobe

    There's a new feature that allows you to position the border placed on an object (e.g inside, center, outside). If I'm not mistaken, you can not do this with CSS so I don't think it should be a design option in XD. I want XD to be slim and laser focused on what can be done with our frontend tools (HTML, CSS). I'm not saying remove this specific feature. I'm just concerned that if it keeps up we'll have a beast on our hands like illustrator or photoshop. I like how XD is very specific to the front end designer…

    Thanks for your concern! We are definitely dedicated toward having a product that is laser-focused on the needs of UX and UI designers and are very concerned with ensuring that feature bloat doesn’t happen.

    That being said, many of our users are doing development for multiple platforms, including native application design, and we heard from our customers that they would like to have stroke position control for design flexibility, as flat assets generally look best when they’re pixel aligned instead of off-pixel, which happens occasionally when you’re center-aligned. We do export well-formed SVG that does, of course, conform to web standards.

    I’m closing this request as more a concern with the way we’re approaching the product and not a desire for a specific feature. Thank you for your feedback!

  19. Export as...

    Please consider an 'Export as..' feature the same way we have a 'Save as..' feature.
    Right now our options are to rename an artboard or replace existing assets.

  20. A few important Requests...

    • Blend modes, but only a few like multiply and overlay. (don't want a re-run of photoshop)
    • Text underline (basic formatting)
    • Flip Horizontal / Vertical
    • Grid system (960 or similar)
    • Image repositioning within shape

    Other than this, you guys have made a fantastic piece of software. In the words of Moff from Human Traffic "Nice one Bruva"
