    It’s been three months since we last asked a question about what type of XML you’re looking for, and what information you’re hoping will be in the XML. I’m closing this story, so please re-file the story with that information!

    Thanks,

  2. Menu Expansion- Drag & Drop

    I really like the idea of Xd but it needs to be quicker to use.

    Can you expand the existing menu so that it contains common website/app elements that can be simply dragged and dropped into our prototypes? You already have this within some of your other programs.

    Eg Drag and droppable:

    expandable/collapsable menus, form elements, scrolling effects, mouse effects, states, swatches, text options(colour, kerning, header 1, 2 etc), modal windows, buttons, carousel, jumbotron, image effects, lists etc.

    Also a link to cc libraries & assets would be great.

    I think expanding the menu like this would save a lot…

    There are a number of great suggestions in this feature, but it’s really hard to aggregate these with other suggestions from other customers. Please do upvote for some of the individual features you’ve suggested:

    1. Reusable widgets:
    (For instance)
    Form elements: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13833198
    Button tool: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13571298

    2. CC Library support: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12930321

    Hope that helps!

  3. What your competitors are doing...

    Hi guys, I love where this software is going and enjoy using it. I think it has great potential for become an industry standard tool but it still needs to catch up on a few things.

    Please see link to see what this particular competitor is doing for your inspiration http://principleformac.com/tutorial.html

    Is there a specific feature from Principle that you’d really like to see in XD? If so, please do file that in the database or upvote a specific feature. We’re listening to you, and we also want to make sure that our feature set matches the needs of our customer base as a whole.

    Thanks,

  4. Toolkit

    Since I am use to working in InDesign it kinda annoys me that I havn't got the same opportunities to shaping my text in different styles (not talking about font) as it it's possible in InDesign. Would be awesome if more of the general features from InDesign were implemented for instant am I at the mount trying to figurer out if it is possible to make some kind of hyperlink. (Beside that really awesome program you guys are making her differently gonna use it in the feature :D )

    Thanks for your feedback! If you’re interested in text styles, we do have specific text style features that we’re tracking separately, so I’d encourage you to search for those specifically (for instance, underline text or superscript) and upvote on those.

    Regarding hyperlink, you can use Share to get a link to your shared prototype. https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/help/share-designs-and-prototypes.html

    Hope that helps!

    Since it’s been a number of months since we requested more information about this feature, I’m closing this. Please do re-file if you think this is something you’re really interested in, and please provide more information when re-filing the issue.

    Thanks,

  6. Turn off resizing/rotation handles when zoomed out or object is very small

    When working wth any item, there is a scale/rotate/selection box around them. However, when zoomed out, and especially on small objects, you end up scaling/rotating, instead of selecting/moving the item.

    It would be nice to have the scale/rotate options automatically turn off, when you are "zoomed out X amount." That is, you are probably moving the item around the screen or looking at things, etc, and not trying to scale/rotate that object, especially the small objects.

  7. Depth design

    As in the design of materials Google, if you could play with the depth of the elements in the interface that is designing the final design be achieved much more consistent and scalable. Utilziar could also be a layer system, the best Photoshop style to keep adding layers and replace them quickly to try different concepts without having to create an entirely new view.

    As it’s been three months since we’ve requested more information (and we’ve released layers since then), marking this as action required. Please do file this issue again if you think we still need to do this.

    Thanks!

  8. Grille de composition et les majuscules pour le texte

    Bravo pour ce super soft ;) Il ne manque pas grand chose pour qu'il soit top. En particulier 2 choses font cruellement défaut : les grilles de composition ("disposition des repères" dans photoshop) et un outil texte plus riche (mettre la police en capitale, des marges dans les blocs, ...).

    Hi there! I think both topics you’ve mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already. Please add your vote to these if they fit:

    In the future, please help us keep the feature request list tidy by filing each different feature as a separate suggestion. Thanks!

  9. Wish list

    Love the new XD, some ideas below that have come to mind.


    • Export mock styleguides for Devs to follow (or not follow). Could be similar to InDesign packaging export


    • Built in colour contrast analyser


    • Screen reflowing like Edge Reflow, so the designs don’t adhere to device sizes.


    • More shape options


    • Smart fields auto complete for text etc


    • Paragraph styling like InDesign for fast text application (make this global across all art boards)


    • Link to a pattern library and Adobe Kular


    • Able to annotate and add notes to prototypes


    • XD can export good clean CSS/HTML


    Cheers

    We’d like individual suggestions to be fine-grained so others can upvote the specific features they’re interested in, and we can get a better picture of which are most important.

    Many of the ideas you’ve mentioned here have already been suggested separately. Please upvote these if they’re relevant to you:

    I’m closing this out…

  10. Import of transparent PNG or psd layers.

    Import of transparent PNG or psd layers. Would be great to use these as imports or even linked assets.

    Also simple annimations such as slide in etc.

    You can already import PNG images with transparency (alpha channel) by dragging & dropping the PNG files onto your Adobe XD window, or by choosing File > Import. You can also bring individual Photoshop layers into XD by copying them in Photoshop and pasting in XD. Are you having trouble getting this to work? If so, please let us know the details.

    Linking to external objects is not yet possible — if you add an image to your XD project, it will always be embedded in your .xd file. If you’d like to be able to keep image assets separate (linked), please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869109-linked-objects

    Simple slide-in animations are already possible — for details check out this tutorial: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-design/how-to/ui-prototyping.html. For more complex animations, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869229-animation-support-microinteractions

    I’m closing this feature request since it is a combination of things that should already be possible and things that have already been suggested…

  11. Preview selected Artboards

    I noticed that I like to design big chunks of an app in one file.

    Therefor, It'd be helpful if it were possible to select a couple of artboards to preview, instead of previewing the whole app.

  14. User Testing Features

    1) My company is adamantly against allowing us use any tool to show intellectual property on the web, so I second the ideas to be able to export to a PDF. In order to use it for wire framing and prototyping purposes it would need to be a clickable/interactive PDF. The ability to pick and choose what we show would be helpful.

    2) Love the previewing and recording, however it'd be more multi-function if, when previewing, you could gray-out the background - or alternatively allow recording the artboard in full screen mode.

    3) Record Audio. Face would be awesome too,…

  15. Using vertical rhythm

    I use vertical rhythm in all my UI design. for more info on what that is see http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/improving-layout-with-vertical-rhythm--webdesign-14070

    including some functionality to apply vertical rhythm would be great. This could be just guides, but would be great if there was something smarter.

    For example... i make sure all my padding, margins and line heights are a multiple of 28px to retain vertical rhythm in my designs.

  17. Dim background when preview window opens (presentation mode)

    It would be a neat feature to be able to dim the artboards in the background when viewing prototypes so as you focus on the preview window.

    This could be achieved by having a button next to the record button to toggle background on or off. The color of te icon changes to show it is selected.

    It would be especially good for when you are recording a video for example, so that your are not distracted by your artboards in the background.
