  1. Export Artbaord PNG with Transparency

    When exporting an artboard as a PNG, I expect that any areas that do not have a fill would be transparent. This isn't the case when I open the PNG file in Photoshop.

  2. Full screen support on OS X

    Support OS X fullscreen mode to allow quick app switching, dual full screen apps in versions past El Capitan, and distraction-free editing.

  3. Changelog for every XD update

    Major releases seem to get changelog updates in a handful of places, but not all updates are clear as to what is actually being improved. It's kind of annoying and confusing to update, like the one 2 days ago for example, and have no clue what's changed even after a google search. It makes it unclear if this is the "monthly" update or bugfixes or whatever. Would be cool to see what's actually improved.

  4. Collapse the property inspector on design specs

    When on the smaller screens (desktop and mobile) the Asset panel takes up a large space of the screen. Create possibility to collapse and open this, or make more mobile friendly.
    To be able to use to whole screen to only view the artboard, click on elements and see their specs on mobile and have space to create comments.

  5. Save as dialog confusion

    After update this dialog box confuses and I find its very complicated. Please use system UI instead of this new one. Because I rename the file and when I hit enter it saves in last location without asking me.

  6. Add screenshots of plugins

    I wish there was a preview or screenshots of the plugins. Most of the plugins without a screenshot won't help me download it.

    Starting in XD’s November 2019 release (XD 24), the plugin listing does feature screenshots.

    Every newly added/updated plugin is required to provide at least one screenshot, to ensure you always have this useful info to go on when choosing which plugins to install.

  7. Multiple Color in Text - Design Specs

    If there is a paragraph where there text color is not everywhere the same, on the design specs you can view only one color and not the second one.

    It would be nice and handy especially for the developers, to be able to see/pick all the colors that are used inside a paragraph placeholder on the design specs mode.

  8. Resize artboard

    Every now and then I find myself juggling with layout settings as soon as I change the width of an existing artboard and want the layout to stay the same.
    Especially when designing for the web.
    Suppose I have a design made on a canvas with a width of 1280. The design is vertically centerd on the artboard. When I change the width of the canvas to say 1500, the design doesn't stay in the center, but positions itself relative to the upper left corner. And the Grid Layout adapts to the new width, meaning that column width and gutter…

  9. Display informations for developers

    When I send my mockup to developers, they need all informations about size, font, etc. It would be nice to have an option to display those informations :)

  10. Import into assets panel

    hello team,
    while importing assets it should not be directly load into art board . but instead first it load on assets kind of tab at top most bar of XD. when click on that it should toggle our imported assets and we drag them out whichever we want onto the artboard for project. not at once i mean.

  11. I want to expose the design spec for each user

    Although I would like to design specs in development, but can not set the scope of disclosure, customers are not allowed to use.
    Can I make an adobe ID invitation system for design specifications?

  12. Rename symbol instance in the layers panel

    When you make a symbol like a button, you draw first a rectangle with attributes like color, size, etc...

    then you put a label in order to give him a function like "Validate", etc

    So when you put this button inside your artboards the problem becomes that if you want to change the caption of the button you'll have to dissociate the symbol to change the caption.

    So the problem is How can I use atomic approach in order to design my system and then if I change the color of the button, the size of it or the caption…

  13. The possibility of changing the fill color of each member of group object by changing the color of that group object

    The possibility of changing the fill color of each member of group object by changing the color of that group object

    I have the full subscription to all Adobe Cloud products and applications.

    Now I can change the color only of the single object, but if I group it (by pressing CTRL+G) the fill color of that object becomes unchangeable.

    That is VERY-VERY inconvenient, because that is VERY-VERY unintuitive.

    Why is that VERY-VERY unintuitive?

    Ok, just have a glance on it.

    Imagine that I've have selected 10 separate objects, and that each of them is not a group, but a…

  14. Display wireframe dimensions and colors for developer handoff

    It would be extremely valuable to have a dimension view or developer view where the size and color code for each element is visible. All text or other distractions would be hidden and the user would have the option to reorganize the auto populated layout of dimensions. This feature would definitely put Adobe XD way ahead of any competitor.

    There are more variables to consider, but this is an great idea to build off of.

    Cheers!

  15. Resize handles disappear when object is still pretty large (Windows only)

    When an object is very small on screen -- either due to zooming out, or just because it's small -- XD hides some resize handles to prevent them from jumbling all together.

    On Mac, handles don't disappear until they're really overlapping. At 100% zoom, you can make a square as small as 16x16 and still see all eight handles (and it'll still give you four handles all the way down to 8x8).

    On Windows however, you can only go down to 64x64 before handles start vanishing. And it'll drop from 4 handles to 1 at any size below 32x32.

    This…

  17. Select which assets to include and exclude in an export

    Being able to choose which files to export and NOT export would be great. So that you can easily re-export all images of a UI without hand-picking every file you want to export. So a tag for include/exclude....(!) Should also work with groups so that groups of buttons and text can exclude the text in an export process.

    Hi,

    Starting with XD 4.0 you can mark for export individual assets and export them in a format of your choice. Marking can be done using the layers panel. After marking, you can select the following menu sequence File →Export→Batch or shortcut Shift + Cmd/Ctrl + E.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers,
    M.

  19. Copy from XD and paste as a raster image (bitmap) in other app

    This is straight taken from my Sketch workflow. In Sketch, when you copy an artboard, the pastable asset is a raster version of your artboard. This allows to quickly paste a work in progress to a Trello card or Slack channel/conversation. This also negates having to export an asset for nothing, saving time and reducing project clutter in general.

    As of now,

  20. XD file shared to Creative Cloud is not very useful yet

    When your XD file synces automatically to CC Cloud files it is in a unreadable format. Taking up space while unusable. Please fix this or just don't have them sync. I realize easier to share on another computer with XD on it but I don't think it should be the default to automatically share unless it shared as a JPEG at the very least.
