  1. 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:

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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"

  5. Artboard Design View Enhancements

    1) when using design mode for multiple artboards, there is no option to print the design overview (ala a Sitemap) for all artboards at once.

    2) Each artboard in our design has a title but they only show "..." in the Design View until you click into the title to edit. Plenty of space to fit the title there.

  6. Compatibilities & Inputs

    I guess if you guys provide the option of gif/photo zoom pan/video compatible options would be good with few animation options like flips and so, i felt XD is very good for the people who want to present the client ideas in better way and presentable. this few requests gets live in software would be more good. and one more major requirement is the tab options as each documents opens up in different window. or else should be a option where in a single document only we can present all three platform compatible option like desktop/mobile/tab.

    will be waiting for…

    Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you only have one feature request per ticket. However, all of these suggestions are already in the database, just waiting for your upvote.

  8. Get CC notification on comments

    It would be great to have a notification in the CC when a comment is made on the prototype. Bonus points for a blip on the same comment when opening prototype!

  9. textstyles

    I'd like to start using Adobe Xd more, but whats really holding me back ist that there are no textstyle options. It'd be really cool and intuitive if they would have the same look and feel as in the other adobe Programs. This is really something I'm missing, and a dealbreaker for me. Especially if I want to design a Website with more that 2 or even just 1 page.

  10. Prototype features

    New functions for the prototype mode.

    I have had a lot of trouble convincing clients and within the development team how the screens work, which I believe will be solved with some features initially.


    • Anchor Point
      Select the object that will start the action and select a target object, that is, you can create animation inside an artboard.


    • Add Elements
      When you perform the action on a source object, you can insert a new element in a selected area.


    • Change states
      Clicking on the source object can change a color or background image of some other element


    • Back
      When we…

  11. Some Ideas

    I've been using this for a while now and I find it absolutely great! However there's a few things I wish it could do.

    1) Having a radial style gradient.

    2) Saving Gradients the same way colors are saved.

    3) Locking an image in the background and having the content scroll over it.

    4) Floating Menu's during prototype mode. So that the main header can scroll along with the page.

    Thank you for this great app. Keep up the good work

  12. # hexcode

    Very minor detail but when coping the hexcode from PS it's easy to forget to added the required # whereas in PS it is already implied

  13. Run demos in fullscreen (not maximised)

    It would be great if demos could run in fullscreen. You could add a button in the artboard properties to check/uncheck fullscreen mode.

  14. Design

    It is very necessary to add:
    - dotted line
    - uppercase letter
    - can change the border line to outside and inside
    - moving image inside the frame. Something like a clipping mask

  15. Select the Btns states like Rolls Over, editing option in Photoshop/Illustrator, adding Personas sections and

    Hello, I am a designer and really like working with Adobe XD.

    I hope that in the future, there will be the option to add/change states to the icons - ex. to create buttons that change color/size when the mouse hovers over/rolls over before clicking and going to another screen. It wouyld also be helpful an option where the image can be edited in Photoshop/Illustrator, saved and updated in XD, like Smart-objects work between Photoshop and Illustrator.

    Finally, to have a section dedicated to the creation of Personas and Users Journeys would be a great adds-on, since many prototyping software…

  17. I really want to use XD, but I want it to perform like InDesign.

    I really want to use XD, but I want it to act and perform like a layout program (InDesign). Layers, guides, text frame options, image frames etc. It needs ALL the basic functionality of InDesign. I keep wanting to go back to InDesign to lay-out/design concepts b/c basic things like guides and layers don't exist.

    Thanks for your feedback! We have a lot of other InDesign fans as well, and they’ve already seeded our database with suggestions that are based on their favorite features. I’d suggest that you search in the XD UserVoice and upvote your favorite features!

    By the way, we do have a layers panel that you can play with. Hit Cmd+Y to launch the contextual layers panel and check it out!

  18. Creative Cloud Files Preview

    Currently, the only way to get a prototype on a device is to have the file located in a creative cloud folder... which total bonk.

    I dont WANT to use that service, I have 2 other cloud storage services already, and i hate both of them. I want to be able to store files locally on the device and be able to delete them. I also want to be able to sync (upload/refresh) a file from anywhere on my machine, which means I need to map to it from the app.

    Rather than change or duplicate my current workflow to…
