  1. Baseline shift for individual character

    I sometimes need to adjust the position of the trademark or register trademark icons in my screens, after changing the size, but I cannot because there is no baseline shift.

  2. Use current file location as Save as default path

    When I select "Save As" it would make a lot of sense to use the file's current location as the default path. Currently XD seems to use the path that was used last time when using XD, regardless of the file.

    I use file number versioning alot, and I have "lost" my files multiple times just to find out them being accidentally saved into the folder of another project.

  3. save for web feature like photoshop for exporting assets

    When I export assets from xd, it generally takes more space. And I can't directly import files from xd to photoshop, so first I have to import into illustrator and then to photoshop and then I can use save for web to optimize my assets.
    So please incorporate a feature so that I can directly export assets from xd with compression.

  5. Share prototype without interactions

    Sometimes I need to get a prototype shared with devs so they can start working on some small piece of the software before I'm done, and to allow time for comments etc in my fast-paced work environment. I often find myself needing to share prototypes before I've started to make them interactive, when they're just in very early stages (sometimes just to show progress, sometime so devs can get a head start on basic styling / layout). However, right now the app won't allow me to share a prototype that has no interactions. This means I have to either add…

  6. Archive prototypes

    I have a ton of prototypes. In addition to adding folders (covered in other requests) I would like the ability to archive old prototypes.

  7. Update Component Preview in Assets Panel when Master Component is edited

    Currently, after creating a component, there is a preview image of that component in the assets panel. But if you make a change to that master component (for example, changing a green object to red) the preview in the assets panel does not update. So even though I now want this component to be a red object, it becomes very hard to find it in the assets panel, at a glance because it is still green in the preview image.

  8. I want the seperate prototype links back

    I thinks its very annoying that you now force us to present the design specs and prototype in the same share cause now it's impossible to iterate these two documents separately. Most of the times my design specs and my prototypes are different iterations and must be shared separately. Often we iterate different prototypes and we send design specs for just sections of the design, the section that has been accepted for release. With the new setup it's impossible to continuous this strategy and it messes things up. Please give us back the opportunity to share ONE thing at the…

    I believe the new version of Illustrator released in November had some changes to address this issue. Could you please try again and let us know if this issue is fixed?

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

    11月にリリースされたIllustratorの新しいバージョンでは、この問題に対処するためにいくつかの変更が加えられたと思います。 この問題が修正された場合はもう一度お試しください。

  10. Organize, Edit & Name artboards in XD like you can in Illustrator

    It would be very useful to be able to Organize, Arrange, Edit & Name artboards in XD exactly like you can in Illustrator.

    Currently in XD you have to arrange the boards linearly from left to right in order to share and export them properly. If you could organize the artboards like you can in AI it would allow for smoother organization, grouping and exporting capabilities.

  12. .exe export

    Hi
    I needed to .exe export when I create a project demo on prototyping mode to sending this export to the manager or somebody that he doesn't have XD on his Computer.
    please add .exe export in this section.
    thank's a lot.

  13. Stretch grid/columns like in Figma

    In Figma I can set margins and gutters and then let the columns stretch over whatever the remaining amount of pixels is. Super easy to work with. Would be a great feature to add to XD :)

    Thanks for your feedback! You can actually already do this – just set your margins and gutters in layout grid, and the columns will recalculate. The only caveat is that our columns are pixel-snapped, which means that you can’t have fractional columns. (Instead, we’ll add the remainder to the margin.) Given this information, can you clarify what you’d like changed about the existing layout grid system?

  14. add shadow to components

    When I have a component I would like to be able to add a shadow to the component. Currently there is only fill and border available.

    Sherif has a response for you: Alan,

    Today in XD, you could select any layer inside the component and add a shadow to it, and it render outside the component bounding box. Does that solve your use case? if not, could you please add more detail into what you’re trying to achieve.

  15. swapping a nested component should change name in layers

    When I have a component like a card with a button in it (button is a nested component) and I drag a different button in to swap it out, the card component should update the original button name with the new name in the layers panel.

  16. An option to not include text values in components

    Lets say you have a Button designed as a component but you want it to have different labels in different situations - the problem I have: every time I change something in the primary component, the label always sets back as well. It would be nice if I could set some "Lorem Ipsum" as a placeholder text that can be changed in child components without repercussions.

  17. Add new elements in Master Component

    Feature:
    There should be a way to add new elements to already created components.

    Requirement Reason:
    This way we wouldn't need to ungroup the component to add the new element every time. The requirement usually occurs in incremental design when we need to modify an already existing component and also when you miss out some elements before marking group of elements as your component.

  18. Screens overview on the web

    I’d love to have a sort of an overview of all screens (artboards) the same way as in Design mode to show all screens at a glance.

    Hi,
    When you share your designs as a Prototype or Design Specs link from XD, you can open it in a web browser and look at the experience you have built.
    You can also click on the Grid icon present in the top left corner to access what we call the Grid view. This would display thumbnails of all the screens in your design along with connected screens information.

    Check out this link for more details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7UBc5sSufI

    Let us know if this is what you are looking for?

    Thanks!
    Arun

  20. On hover tooltip

    On Hover to provide tooltip or pop-over,
    As of now you guys have provided the On hover component/button styling. But we need to add tooltips at times or a mini popover on hover which will be helpful.
