  1. Turn off resizing/rotation handles when zoomed out or object is very small

    When working wth any item, there is a scale/rotate/selection box around them. However, when zoomed out, and especially on small objects, you end up scaling/rotating, instead of selecting/moving the item.

    It would be nice to have the scale/rotate options automatically turn off, when you are "zoomed out X amount." That is, you are probably moving the item around the screen or looking at things, etc, and not trying to scale/rotate that object, especially the small objects.

  2. Depth design

    As in the design of materials Google, if you could play with the depth of the elements in the interface that is designing the final design be achieved much more consistent and scalable. Utilziar could also be a layer system, the best Photoshop style to keep adding layers and replace them quickly to try different concepts without having to create an entirely new view.

    As it’s been three months since we’ve requested more information (and we’ve released layers since then), marking this as action required. Please do file this issue again if you think we still need to do this.

    Thanks!

  3. Grille de composition et les majuscules pour le texte

    Bravo pour ce super soft ;) Il ne manque pas grand chose pour qu'il soit top. En particulier 2 choses font cruellement défaut : les grilles de composition ("disposition des repères" dans photoshop) et un outil texte plus riche (mettre la police en capitale, des marges dans les blocs, ...).

    Hi there! I think both topics you’ve mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already. Please add your vote to these if they fit:

    In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. Thanks!

  4. Wish list

    Love the new XD, some ideas below that have come to mind.

    - Export mock styleguides for Devs to follow (or not follow). Could be similar to InDesign packaging export

    - Built in colour contrast analyser

    - Screen reflowing like Edge Reflow, so the designs don’t adhere to device sizes.

    - More shape options

    - Smart fields auto complete for text etc

    - Paragraph styling like InDesign for fast text application (make this global across all art boards)

    - Link to a pattern library and Adobe Kular

    - Able to annotate and add notes to prototypes

    - XD can export…

    We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

    Many of the ideas you’ve mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

    I’m closing this out…

  5. Import of transparent PNG or psd layers.

    Import of transparent PNG or psd layers. Would be great to use these as imports or even linked assets.

    Also simple annimations such as slide in etc.

    You can already import PNG images with transparency (alpha channel) by dragging & dropping the PNG files onto your Adobe XD window, or by choosing File > Import. You can also bring individual Photoshop layers into XD by copying them in Photoshop and pasting in XD. Are you having trouble getting this to work? If so, please let us know the details.

    Linking to external objects is not yet possible — if you add an image to your XD project, it will always be embedded in your .xd file. If you’d like to be able to keep image assets separate (linked), please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109-linked-objects

    Simple slide-in animations are already possible — for details check out this tutorial: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/how-to/ui-prototyping.html. For more complex animations, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869229-animation-support-microinteractions

    I’m closing this feature request since it is a combination of things that should already be possible and things that have already been suggested…

  6. Preview selected Artboards

    I noticed that I like to design big chunks of an app in one file.

    Therefor, It'd be helpful if it were possible to select a couple of artboards to preview, instead of previewing the whole app.

  8. sharing on different mobile device

    i'm working on an app. we have started to do the android version first.
    at this moment when i share the link and view the prototype on my iPhone and it work well, a bitt heavy ( a few seconds to view it correctly )by you can get the idea.
    on Android same link it is a different story: it shows only on galaxy S6 again upload very very slower then the iPhone but at the end it uploads. same link on Galaxy S4/ meizo note m2 doesnt work at all.

  9. User Testing Features

    1) My company is adamantly against allowing us use any tool to show intellectual property on the web, so I second the ideas to be able to export to a PDF. In order to use it for wire framing and prototyping purposes it would need to be a clickable/interactive PDF. The ability to pick and choose what we show would be helpful.

    2) Love the previewing and recording, however it'd be more multi-function if, when previewing, you could gray-out the background - or alternatively allow recording the artboard in full screen mode.

    3) Record Audio. Face would be awesome too,…

  10. Using vertical rhythm

    I use vertical rhythm in all my UI design. for more info on what that is see http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/improving-layout-with-vertical-rhythm--webdesign-14070

    including some functionality to apply vertical rhythm would be great. This could be just guides, but would be great if there was something smarter.

    For example... i make sure all my padding, margins and line heights are a multiple of 28px to retain vertical rhythm in my designs.

  12. Dim background when preview window opens (presentation mode)

    It would be a neat feature to be able to dim the artboards in the background when viewing prototypes so as you focus on the preview window.

    This could be achieved by having a button next to the record button to toggle background on or off. The color of te icon changes to show it is selected.

    It would be especially good for when you are recording a video for example, so that your are not distracted by your artboards in the background.

  15. From China Baidu inc 's PM: values to users is result and efficiency , but there are some problem

    设计的结果对于用户有核心价值,评判结果好坏有多个标准:其中很重要的就是美观度。用户想要达到好的美观度,有不同的效率,其实当前市场上很多同类产品都能达到很好的效果,但效率方面差别很大。下面几点是影响效率的重要因素:
    1.可DIY的默认设置:包括矩形的样子、快捷键、填充等等,可R+1代表第一类矩形,R+2代表第二类矩形,而这些都可以自定义设置。还有包括字体、画布、iphone背景、参考线等等,希望都能DIY默认情况。
    2.文字编辑,希望能够完善项目符号的功能,类似evernote的功能即可。这样PM就可以通过XD进行PRD的撰写。因为设计和方案往往是连带的。
    3.对齐策略,两个矩形对其时,其连接处将要重合的那条线,为什么不直接重合掉?还做了两条线,这样设计效率很低,每次还需要手动调整,影响最终的美观度。
    4.导出为PNG时,应该为高清晰度版,不要只是模糊版,因为设计师都苛求精致,作为作品输出时,必须要清晰的。
    3.可自定义元件库:其实在交互设计的过程中,很多样式都是很固定的那么几种,如果可以自己预先定义好,效率无疑非常高。

    (translated)
    1. pre-defined style definitions for objects with fonts, background, guides, etc.
    2. typography: add bullet points
    3. Snap to overlap, not snap to side-by-side
    4. Export to PNG seems to be low-quality
    5. Customizable libraries

    Thank you for your feedback! We have been breaking up feature requests into smaller components, so it would help us if you could upvote on your features:

    1. Style definitions: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12934134.

    2. Bullet points: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/16073923

    3. Snapping is dependent on the stroke, so what you’re looking for is stroke https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12942135

    4. Please check that you’re exporting to the correct screen size. If you still see issues, please report them in UserVoice separately.

    5. We’re looking at CC Libraries: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12930321. We also are working on Symbols at the moment: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12931467.

    Please take a chance to vote on each if you still see these as features you would like!

  18. Text playing on sharing

    while using text playing, it ask to sign-in.
    this shouldn't be happen, for example if i want to share with my client & he dont have adobe account or for user testing. it will be a gr8 mess.
    like it happened to me with my client for user testing. THIS ISSUE SHOULD BE FIX

  19. Be able to export the COLOR assets in a list to share to developers

    I would like to be able to just export a list of all the colors I use in my design in a list, for the developer to know what colors he has to add to his css file.
    Also that would also be good for the typography assets.

  20. Useful Muse features to XD

    Dear Adobe,

    First of all, thank you for creating XD.
    I believe this is the most useful tool that can be used for many different projects if some of features are included.
    Here are some vital features I wish it's available in near future.


    Export to web (MUST!!!!!!)
    I'm sure Exporting to HTML is under review, but I believe bringing Export to web feature from Muse will work the best. Export as HTML file can leave a number of problems, but if it publishes directly from XD to designated host will be secure, and bug-free. It's already been done from…

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file a single ticket per idea, and I see multiple ideas in here. However, these ideas are not new, and we do have suggestions already in the database. For instance:
