  1. Recenter and zoom to an artboard from the artboard list

    I want XD to recenter and zoom to an artboard that I select from the artboard list.

    Why is this valuable to you?
    I currently spend a lot of energy manually zooming and panning between artboards. What if we simplify and streamline all this activity to just a couple of clicks?

  2. Display the "Update link" button as a primary action

    Version : 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.2.61

    Click the share button in the top right corner and select "Share again".

    The "Update link" and "New link" buttons look exactly the same. Several times I have come to press the wrong button. In 100% of the cases, I want to update the existing link. I would therefore argue that it makes sense to emphasize this as a primary action.

  4. Add multiple symbols from the panel to the canvas

    Would be great if we could add multiples symbols at once rather than adding one by one. Maybe let grouped items be imported to the symbols section altogether.

  5. Direct selection tool for nested objects

    In Illustrator, the direct selection arrow allows me to select an object inside a group without having to select the group. When I have nested groups this can become a laborious process. This should also provide a way to select individual objects contained within different groups.

  6. Export Artboards at a Device's True Resolution

    Artboards should export at the device's true resolution. iPhone 7 Plus should export at 1242x2208 and not the 414x870. Same with Android's 1080x1920 resolution.

    We should at least select the 3 times (3x) option when exporting. Artboards. The PDF option creates too many steps to create a PNG/JPG of an Artboard.

  7. Option to reset prototype to initial artboard

    Useful during initial rough prototyping so complete loops don't need to be added, or during review of more complex prototypes.

  8. Copy shared prototype link again after closing/reopening file

    When generating prototypes to share online - I only see options to share again or update. What if i just want to copy the link again? Have come across this several times. Would be super helpful to have access to previously shared link there. Am I just not seeing it? Thanks.

  9. shortcut to switch between two window or cancas

    It would be nice to have shortcut key for switching between the two windows when open. for example when i have one project open and then i open for some iOS and android UI it opens in new window which is really annoying to switch between the the two window.
    for example in photoshop when i press (cmd+ ~) it switchs between the windows without using mouse click.

  10. Vectorize Text

    I noticed that the text box around text can be centered/aligned itself, but the text inside it is always at the bottom of the text box and not centered, making it hard to center/align text with other objects.

    For example, if you create a rectangle for a button (see image), and add in a text box with some text that says something like "button," and center both together vertically and horizontally, the text will be slightly lower than center because the text is not centered inside the text box.

    Some have already posted the idea of adding alignment tools, but…

  11. Delete points on a shape to create a line

    When deleting points from a shape, the endpoints still connect and the object remains a shape rather than being able to become a line. Important, for example, for designing charts and graphs such as donut charts broken into sections.

    It you have one or more artboards selected at the time you choose File > Export, the button in the save dialog box won’t say “Export All Artboards.”

    The easiest ways to select an artboard are:

    • Click the title of the artboard (you can shift-click to select multiple artboards this way)
    • Drag a marquee that fully encompasses one or more artboards

    You can tell an artboard is selected when its title turns blue.

    Here’s a quick screencast that shows both ways of selecting artboards: http://imgur.com/a/nKQyE

  13. "Previous Artboard" links: cannot choose animation, timing, easing

    When you select the previous art board option you are not able to change the animation mode and timing like other prototype links. Is this a bug? It's a shame and a problem in my estimation.

  14. Text Weights

    Need to select if the type is bold, regular, light etc inside the text box
    Does not help in design to make the whole text box one text weight

  15. Clipping Mask

    The current implementation of "masking" is missing a key feature... clipping masks.

    I've attached a file to help give a better understanding of what I'm referring to. Thanks!

  16. "Unlock" object

    To unlock a locked object on a layer, we have to go to Menu > Object > Lock

    It would be great it says "Unlock" if the object is already locked.

  18. Color picker should stay active when switching between apps

    When switching between apps, for. example when copying hex from browser to Xd, Color dialog window always disappear and I always have to click on Fill option in Appearance tab to get Color dialog back on. It would be much easier for window to stay open when switching between apps.

  19. Welcome Screen usability

    Your startup screen breaks one of the basic rules of usability : What can I interact with?

    Everything is gray. Titles, desc text, links and buttons.

    PROBLEM: The layout is fine, but you have turned your startup screen into 'mystery meat' navigation. What can I click on? What is a call to action? Do I have to hover over everything to figure this out?

    Think about this. Also, gray links are historically 'disabled' color. Whether it's a button or a link, it usually means 'disabled'. I understand that shades of grey are the new cool design thing, but for your…

  20. Keyboard shortcut to switch between Design and Prototype

    I tried various keyboard shortcuts and looked in the top menu but to no avail - It would be nice to be able to switch between design and prototype modes at a press of a keyboard button instead of having to click.
