  1. Export from XD to Sketch

    Using XD currently, were other members in team are using sketch.
    Not able to deliver required (sketch) file format to front end developers.

    Frond end devs are using only sketch to read, since majority are using it.

    Option to "export to sketch" would solve the file deliverable problem.

  3. Interactive form elements

    Ability to create interactive relationships, like radio inputs, if you select one it deselects the other. Selecting different options can change the outcome when the user hits 'Submit' etc

  4. Interactive Prototyping for User Testing

    I use JustInMind to prototype Web and Mobile apps that I then user-test. The JIM application is less than optimal, but to attract a broader Human Factors / Usability / Design audience you're going to need a lot more than "scrolling."

    Interactive elements such as text fields, check boxes, drop-downs, etc. that can all be connected, responding to user inputs as needed, in a manner that replicates a real application in its native environment is what is needed.

    I look forward to that day, as your design tools and simple, visual linking paradigm are certainly winners.

  6. Fonts preview

    When you choose font for text, would be good to have some preview about how it'll look.

  8. Use CSS properties / classes to specify object appearance

    Add unique CSS properties to object properties.
    Things like Margins, Padding and un-even borders are not common for design apps, but it would be great to define them per object in XD, honor them in the design mode, and export them as part of the object css,

  9. Vertical Alignment of text in text box

    Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.

  10. More default animations and easings

    It would be great with a few more features/interactive animations when you link the pages. More easing options. I guess what I'm saying I would like to have more animations and effects based on what we have on websites and apps to this date.

  11. Use webfonts without manually installing font locally

    I would like to use icon libraries (web fonts) without to install them as fonts in my system. For that it would be great to have the option to use all icons of a downloaded "woff-file" i.e. from the following sites and embed them into the xd project:

    materialdesignicons.com
    flaticon.com
    Google Web Fonts
    FontAwesome

  13. Standalone installer

    I'm a teacher at university who have a sort of CC team model installed on their computers. I wanted my students starts learning from beginning XD but unfortunately you can install it just via the CC app and there is no stand alone installer on line.

    I know its not a feature request and its very specific request :)

  14. Add your own custom UI Kits

    The ability to add your own UI Kits to the start screen

    It's great having iOs etc on there but for professionals working on lots of projects (web based) for big brands there is definitely a need to have custom UI Kits for each brand. This will speed up projects massively as well as maintaining consistency across all projects. Thats essential when you are working to strict brand guidelines.

    Make it happen Adobe ;)

  15. Infinite Canvas

    One of the main reasons we use Sketch is because of the infinite canvas. For large web projects, there can easily be 60+ artboards at 1920px width, which would run into the edge of XD's canvas. Please make it infinite - it's also very annoying trying to zoom into an artboard at the edge of the canvas, since you can't center the artboard in the view properly.

  16. Logic in prototyping - conditional behavior, branching, if/then

    To be able to prototype for usability testing and demonstrations there needs to be a bit more intelligence around how experiences are joined up togehter.

    If clause example:
    If user makes choice a, do x. If user makes choice b, do z. And so on.

    Variables:
    When user makes a choice/clicks/fills in a field etc. assign a variable. Then allow designer to use variables in an if-clause to make decision which roots to go down.

    Thank you :)

  17. Use Mobile Device to Show Palettes

    Is there a way you could create the ability to use a mobile device to display actionable palettes?

    I use a two display setup on my desktop. When I travel I have to use my laptop which means I can't have very many palettes available without using up my project workspace on screen.

    What if I could connect my mobile device via usb or bluetooth and have actionable palettes displayed there. I could have several palettes onscreen on a tablet, or on a phone, then I could just swipe left or right to the palette I wanted. I could then…

  18. New mode: IA Flow

    Simple view to map out the IA (Information architecture), decided feature requests, page relationships, etc. before designing.

    This would keep all design blueprints in one system instead of heading out to ___(Mind map or flowchart app of choice)__ to stay on track. Especially when working on small teams.

    May reflect a similar (though severely simplified) view of Prototype mode.

  19. Color Management (set color profiles)

    XD should be a color managed application.

    I'm not sure what the full context of color management is within the UI/UX industry is, or if it's something that many pay attention to, or if it's just left un-managed.
    Currently a vast majority of designers are using high gamut displays to design. Our final output will however differ greatly without some proper color management implemented. If color managment is implemented, we can at least visually soft proof our design and colors to specific devices (ie: New iOS devices that support P3 color gamut), or older sRGB devices.
    At the same time…

  20. Wifi connectivity for XD app (not connecting only by USB cable)

    Instead of being able to connect only by a USB cable, the ability to connect via wifi. Any roadmap for this would be useful to know.
