  1. Design Spec Beta: Developers open the link but think they need an Adobe account

    I have change log set up on confluence and I've been wondering why non of the developers have been clicking on the link to see the spec, but instead have been downloading the XD file instead. And when the fonts failed to load on the file, they often slack me what the font weight is and etc.

    And when I refer to them spec link, the first thing they said to me was "they don't have an account". I had to show them they can just click "Sign In" and then hit "Google". And then they were like OOOHHHH..

    But…

  2. Select and change the shape of the same color to another color together, instead of select shapes one by one again.

    When I decided to change the whole prototype design from one color palette to another. I cannot change the same color of all the shapes together. I need to select same color shapes on each page one by one. This is so slow.

  3. Unbury the Update Link command

    I use the Update Link command a lot! It has now been buried under Publish Prototype; more clicks away instead of fewer. I believe that his command is a signature experience for this application, and so it should be brought forward rather than buried.

    It would be great for me to have a dedicated control that let's me update my prototype with one powerful click.

    Please look at the attached image I which I have capture my thoughts around this feature.

    If anything, the previous design should be put back in place.

  4. Recenter and zoom to an artboard from the artboard list

    I want XD to recenter and zoom to an artboard that I select from the artboard list.

    Why is this valuable to you?
    I currently spend a lot of energy manually zooming and panning between artboards. What if we simplify and streamline all this activity to just a couple of clicks?

  5. Display the "Update link" button as a primary action

    Version : 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.2.61

    Click the share button in the top right corner and select "Share again".

    The "Update link" and "New link" buttons look exactly the same. Several times I have come to press the wrong button. In 100% of the cases, I want to update the existing link. I would therefore argue that it makes sense to emphasize this as a primary action.

  7. Add multiple symbols from the panel to the canvas

    Would be great if we could add multiples symbols at once rather than adding one by one. Maybe let grouped items be imported to the symbols section altogether.

  8. Direct selection tool for nested objects

    In Illustrator, the direct selection arrow allows me to select an object inside a group without having to select the group. When I have nested groups this can become a laborious process. This should also provide a way to select individual objects contained within different groups.

  9. Export Artboards at a Device's True Resolution

    Artboards should export at the device's true resolution. iPhone 7 Plus should export at 1242x2208 and not the 414x870. Same with Android's 1080x1920 resolution.

    We should at least select the 3 times (3x) option when exporting. Artboards. The PDF option creates too many steps to create a PNG/JPG of an Artboard.

  10. Option to reset prototype to initial artboard

    Useful during initial rough prototyping so complete loops don't need to be added, or during review of more complex prototypes.

  11. Copy shared prototype link again after closing/reopening file

    When generating prototypes to share online - I only see options to share again or update. What if i just want to copy the link again? Have come across this several times. Would be super helpful to have access to previously shared link there. Am I just not seeing it? Thanks.

  12. shortcut to switch between two window or cancas

    It would be nice to have shortcut key for switching between the two windows when open. for example when i have one project open and then i open for some iOS and android UI it opens in new window which is really annoying to switch between the the two window.
    for example in photoshop when i press (cmd+ ~) it switchs between the windows without using mouse click.

  13. Vectorize Text

    I noticed that the text box around text can be centered/aligned itself, but the text inside it is always at the bottom of the text box and not centered, making it hard to center/align text with other objects.

    For example, if you create a rectangle for a button (see image), and add in a text box with some text that says something like "button," and center both together vertically and horizontally, the text will be slightly lower than center because the text is not centered inside the text box.

    Some have already posted the idea of adding alignment tools, but…

  14. Delete points on a shape to create a line

    When deleting points from a shape, the endpoints still connect and the object remains a shape rather than being able to become a line. Important, for example, for designing charts and graphs such as donut charts broken into sections.

    It you have one or more artboards selected at the time you choose File > Export, the button in the save dialog box won’t say “Export All Artboards.”

    The easiest ways to select an artboard are:

    • Click the title of the artboard (you can shift-click to select multiple artboards this way)
    • Drag a marquee that fully encompasses one or more artboards

    You can tell an artboard is selected when its title turns blue.

    Here’s a quick screencast that shows both ways of selecting artboards: http://imgur.com/a/nKQyE

  16. "Previous Artboard" links: cannot choose animation, timing, easing

    When you select the previous art board option you are not able to change the animation mode and timing like other prototype links. Is this a bug? It's a shame and a problem in my estimation.

  17. Text Weights

    Need to select if the type is bold, regular, light etc inside the text box
    Does not help in design to make the whole text box one text weight

  18. Clipping Mask

    The current implementation of "masking" is missing a key feature... clipping masks.

    I've attached a file to help give a better understanding of what I'm referring to. Thanks!

  19. "Unlock" object

    To unlock a locked object on a layer, we have to go to Menu > Object > Lock

    It would be great it says "Unlock" if the object is already locked.
