  1. Have a Convert Point Tool (To Edit Your Paths)

    It would be very helpful to have a Convert Point Tool (I believe it's called) where you can edit all of your paths that you created with the actual Pen Tool itself. I know XD is supposed to be much more simple than Illustrator is, but there are some things that a person just needs to learn before he gets into a design and this is one of them. Honestly, the only reason I switched from Ai to Xd is that the overall work experience is a lot better but not having features like this one annoys me very much.

    You can already convert an anchor point on a path in XD, from straight to curved, or curved to straight. To do so while drawing a new path with the Pen tool, simply double-click on the last point you created. To convert a point on a path you’ve already created, double-click on the path you want to edit with the Select tool, then double-click on any point on the path to convert it.

  2. Allow shared prototypes to be viewed by the receiver on his/her XD mobile app

    If i publish a prototype privately and i invite another designer on the team, the designer should be able to view my prototype on his XD mobile app just like it was his

  3. Trigger with PC keyboard

    I would like to use a PC keyboard as a trigger to make prototypes of products using hardware switches.

    By using USB devices you can use various switch parts.

  4. Search for keywords in plugin manager

    Would love to be able to search for keywords in the plugin manager (i.e. "icons", "data") so finding related plugins will be easer.

  5. Working with Illustrator and Xd

    Hi, I can't believe how there's 0 sync with Illustrator. I design all my screens there as it is more useful than Xd tools but I can't export them to it. I tried SVG and PSD but didn't work as I wanted. Why isn't so simple as draggin the elements as I always do from Ai to Ps or viceversa? Please, this would be a really useful feature, hope you consider it.

    Mask with Shape already exists! You can access it using the context menu if you have two objects selected, or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+M.

  7. Scene based Transition

    Feature request.

    Using this feature user can create the artboard based animation very easily. XD has to create a new scene based frame to select the artboard to animate.


    1. Create a scene based frame.

    2. Drag and drop the artboard to animate in frame

    3. Draw the object in the artboard

    4. Same objects would display in other artboards drag and drop in the frame

    5. Move the objects in the frame. (same would refresh in artboards)

    6. Automatically animate the objects (Shape, position, color etc...)

  8. Disable navigation on footer

    Hi Guys,

    is it possible to deactivate/disable the page-navigation on the Footer from prototype? Clients use this usually as Slide and don't understand the main fonction of XD

  9. Export/Downloading PNG/JPEG/SVG from Design Specs

    Often what happens is that Developers require some assets in either SVG format or any of the other image formats.

    Using Design Specs, exporting/downloading a specific icon/vector shape would help ease the asset transferring between Designers and Developers. This would also help maintain the right assets and share it with ease.

  10. Increase the hit area in the asset panel when in list view

    The hit area of an asset is limited to the icon in list view. which is very counter-intuitive please increase the hit area. and I don't think there will be any harm in doing so.

  11. Anonymous Log-In For Reviewers

    Would be very helpful not to require clients/stakeholders to create an Adobe account simply to review their comps. This could be sandboxed within private links to solve security concerns (ie., if they have the link, they can be assumed safe to allow comments from). Many clients won't do so, forcing to send a JPG or PDF via Dropbox instead, which defeats the purpose of having used a prototyping tool.

  12. Create mask from default container

    I think it would be a great improvement if the current 'mask with shape' feature also worked by using the default container of an image:


    1. Select image

    2. Shift + CMD + M

    3. Image is now masked within it's default container that you can edit

    Thanks!

    Note from Randy:

    Starting with XD 9, images are already masked with a shape! No need to execute any command.

    The shape is a Rectangle with same width and height as image. Double-click in the middle to edit size and position of image fill.

    Double-click on border to convert rectangle to a path.

  13. Put Comment Feature in Design Spec Public Link

    Why is the comment feature not allowed in the Design Spec Public Link? Why can't it work the same as Prototype Shared Link? Why is it only in the Private Link?

    I want a place for my team to review my screens from a bird's eye view without having to invite them.

    And the email invite is crap because it only works if it's their adobe email account. But what if they don't have an Adobe account? Then it doesn't work. So now I don't feel confident sharing any private link because it's highly likely they cannot access it.

    I…

    We’ve delivered comments in design specs. Arun has mentioned:

    Commenting feature is present even for the Design Spec public links. When you publish a public Design Specs link from latest release of XD and share it with your team, they would be able to open the commenting panel and add provide feedback. Please note that commenting feature is available for both Public & Private links.

    Private links is a secure way of sharing your designs with team members. When reviewers click on the invite email, they would be taken to Adobe sign-in page where they can choose to sign-up in case their email does not have an adobe ID. As soon as they sign-up, it would automatically be associated and would provide them access to view your private design.

  14. Design Standards for each file

    With a consistent design system, I have mapped all the standards we need to use on each project. With that, on XD I'm not able to set those as standards on a file so for an example, each different text element created need to be changed from the standard XD font to the one in my design system.

    With that, we would be able not only to document the general standards for the dev team but also would allow us to keep the standards tightly without the chance of forgetting to change something That could work for:


    • Standard font (family,…

    We’ve introduced linked assets, which will enable you to link your entire assets panel from another document. You should be able to define things in one location and reuse them.

    If you’re looking for something different, please feel free to file a new ticket!

  15. Color asset highlighting

    When object with applied asset color or font style is selected, highlight those assets in the left bar so I know which one is applied.

  17. Paste above currentyl selected layer instead on top most position

    Currently pasting something is always placed on the top most position, that should be changed. Instead pasted elements should always be positioned above the currently selected layer.

    Thansk in advance.

  18. Enable Adobe Exchange for XD

    Adobe Exchange should enable for Adobe XD, so that other developer can develop extensions and allow us to install. Like we have. this option for other CC products like, Photoshop, illustrator, InDesign and others.

  19. Let users know when they try to open a file that is already opened by other designer

    Basically, just a warning would be fine, when a design trying to open a file that's already opened, just let them know, and eventually let they know who they are would be nice too.

  20. Please let me use beta version before full version.


    1. Please let me use beta version before full version.

    2. Feature update of the full version is too late. Monthly updates are relatively quick compared to other programs, but in the prototype implementation, important menu fixes and keyboard slides are only shown in the seminar, and the updates are actually too late. We expected these features to be updated in the May update.
      But the actual updates are very disappointing. So I want you to use the beta version before the full version comes out.
