  1. Do not snap to grid

    I'd like to have a key binding that would not snap to grid while I'm trying to position an item. The location I need might be close to a grid line, so it would automatically snap to it, but I'd need it to be juuuuust off.

  2. Rough Wireframe Toolkit

    It would be great to have a 'sketch' UI toolkit (similar visually to Balsamiq), to allow for creating a wireframe with a focus on the content and workflows, rather than on execution of design and style (or the ability to toggle between the 2).

  3. Add a button to the first run start experience to open existing files

    The start experience on first run does not have a button that allows us to open existing XD files. Every other Adobe product allows this.

  4. Disable hotspots for prototypes

    For usability tests, I want to disable/hide the hotspots when you click. The hotspots make the tests too easy for the user.

    The main reason I changed to Adobe XD is that I can do everything with just one tool. Now I have to use InVision/Marvel again for the usability tests because I can't disable the hotspots.

  5. Comment input field hard to find in the shared prototype comment panel

    "As a web viewer, it was not clear that I can add comments." It appears that the input field for adding notes may be so far down on the page on large monitors that it is being missed. See attached screen shot with notes notations.

  6. Load new app icon in Share Online

    I work with a file that in the beginning was just a wirefrsame clickdummie and now is a full UI clickdummie. When I shared it online the first time, I uploaded an icon to provide the Share Online link. Back by now the project had a complete other name and logo and the icon doesn’t fit well anymore …

    Is there the possibility to change the Icon? I didn’t find the request here yet …

  7. Move the Comment field to the top of the page

    Hello,
    Would you please consider moving the Comment field to the top of the panel (just under the icons) because when you first open comments, it appears at the bottom of the screen and it feels too far away from where you just clicked. It took me and several others several glances to see where it was.

    Thanks so much,
    Mark

  8. Export single artboard as pdf

    Be able to pick a single (or multiple) artboard to export as pdf. Working with multiple artboards to show simple drop down executions and do not need them all exported together since then I have to go into Acrobat and delete pages.

  9. Add context menu for copying and pasting when editing text

    When I try to copy a section of text within a text box, if I right click on the selection there are no options but if I use the keyboard shortcut cmd + c it will copy it to the clipboard for me to paste on to another art board.

    Is this by design or is it a bug? If it is by design can right click options on selected text be added please?

  11. [Windows] Support French keyboard shortcuts

    I am using French keyboard and Arrange shortcuts do not work, only clicking in the menu does.

    European keyboards need the AltGr keys to access alternate characters like [ but that triggers measure mode instead (I think?).

    Besides these shortcuts are inconvenient to type on European keyboard layouts.

    For instance: Shift+Ctrl+AltGr+[ (Send to back) that's a lot of keys to type and they are far apart on the keyboard.

    You should now be able to use the AZERTY keyboard using the French localized version of Adobe XD, available in the May 2017 release. To check out the latest version, go to the Creative Cloud desktop app! If you don’t see the update, you can select the gear and click on “Check for App Updates.”

  12. Hand tool

    It would be nice to have a hand tool (in the try) and keyboard/mouse shortcuts.

    Right now when I hit the H key nothing happens, same with middle mouse button.

  13. OPT + DRAG to duplicate artboards

    Allow OPT + DRAG to duplicate artboards

    This would allow much faster iteration of page ideas. Duplicating from the layers palette is cumbersome and less intuitive because it forces way too much pointing and clicking.

    You can already option-drag to duplicate artboards. However, you’ll need to make sure that you have the artboard itself selected before you option-drag. To select the artboard, you can either click the artboard’s title or double click on the background. Once the artboard is selected, you can Option-Drag and have the entire artboard duplicate. :)

  14. Behance integration

    It can be very cool if there is way for integration iframe of XD project in Behance project for demonstrating in case.

  16. SVG Export Option: Convert Text to Curves

    XD is a great software to design digital assets with vector graphics and text. It would be perfect if text could be converted into curves when assets are saved as svg files for web.

    feature-completed  ·  Tom Krcha responded

    Hi Frank, we support this, go to Path → Convert to Path.
    Perhaps we need to make it more obvious.

  17. A place on this forum where users could chat/exchange thoughts like a forum?

    Just a thought that sometimes it'd be nice to have conversations with other users online about XD as I don't know anyone else using it.

  18. Hotkey for starting/stopping prototype recordings

    Having a hotkey to control prototype recordings would clean up cursor activity during the recording. By necessity, the cursor currently has to navigate to and from the top right corner when the video starts and ends, something that detracts from the presentation. A hotkey would remove the need for those extra movements.

  20. Ability to name export file (not overwrite file)

    Unless I missed something, there is no way to name the new export, and it will use the .xd filename and add the relevant extension (PDF, etc...)

    Could we give it a different name so we don't have to overwrite, or create a subfolder?

    This is useful when exporting a subset of artboards from the same project.
