  3. Add your own custom UI Kits

    The ability to add your own UI Kits to the start screen

    It's great having iOs etc on there but for professionals working on lots of projects (web based) for big brands there is definitely a need to have custom UI Kits for each brand. This will speed up projects massively as well as maintaining consistency across all projects. Thats essential when you are working to strict brand guidelines.

    Make it happen Adobe ;)

  4. Standalone installer

    I'm a teacher at university who have a sort of CC team model installed on their computers. I wanted my students starts learning from beginning XD but unfortunately you can install it just via the CC app and there is no stand alone installer on line.

    I know its not a feature request and its very specific request :)

  5. Use Mobile Device to Show Palettes

    Is there a way you could create the ability to use a mobile device to display actionable palettes?

    I use a two display setup on my desktop. When I travel I have to use my laptop which means I can't have very many palettes available without using up my project workspace on screen.

    What if I could connect my mobile device via usb or bluetooth and have actionable palettes displayed there. I could have several palettes onscreen on a tablet, or on a phone, then I could just swipe left or right to the palette I wanted. I could then…

  6. Vertical Alignment of text in text box

    Ability to align text to the top/middle/bottom of the text box. I'm sure you've already got the horizontal alignment options covered in your checklist.

  8. Wifi connectivity for XD app (not connecting only by USB cable)

    Instead of being able to connect only by a USB cable, the ability to connect via wifi. Any roadmap for this would be useful to know.

  10. Infinite Canvas

    One of the main reasons we use Sketch is because of the infinite canvas. For large web projects, there can easily be 60+ artboards at 1920px width, which would run into the edge of XD's canvas. Please make it infinite - it's also very annoying trying to zoom into an artboard at the edge of the canvas, since you can't center the artboard in the view properly.

  11. Save symbols to be used across multiple projects

    Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

  12. Set Default Style for Text Tool

    Description:
    Once I select a font in TEXT panel I want this font to be default font every time I use the Text tool. Until I change it again.

    Why is this valuable to you:
    Now you have to change font every time when you use Text tool — bad usability. Slows down the workflow.

    Additional request 1:
    Also, it would be nice to set a base font size for the project. So that every time I use Text tool I'm suggested this exact size.

    ----
    Additional request 2:
    Possibility to set up default global font sizes for <p>, <h1>,…

    Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.

  13. Logic in prototyping - conditional behavior, branching, if/then

    To be able to prototype for usability testing and demonstrations there needs to be a bit more intelligence around how experiences are joined up togehter.

    If clause example:
    If user makes choice a, do x. If user makes choice b, do z. And so on.

    Variables:
    When user makes a choice/clicks/fills in a field etc. assign a variable. Then allow designer to use variables in an if-clause to make decision which roots to go down.

    Thank you :)

  14. Override styles in a symbol (allow symbol differences)

    Right now, you can override text and bitmaps in a symbol. I'd like to be able to override appearance properties like opacity, fill color, borders, shadows, and font style.

  15. Please make an iOS version of XD with robust iPad Pro support

    I've been enjoying the XD Preview immensely, and find it super useful, with much promise. But I'm doing more and more work on the iPad Pro these days, and that's in large part due to the current crop of Adobe iOS apps.

    A full-featured version of Adobe XD for iOS, including CC sync, would be amazing.

  16. Collaboration on same document (real-time OR check-in / check-out model)

    I would love to be able to work with my design team at the same time on the same file on different computers and instantly see changes made by someone else in realtime.
    Currently, we use Google Drawings to create wireframes because it allows us all to work in the same file at the same time and to instantly see changes made.

    synchronous collaboration

  17. HeatMaps / Analytics (User Testing results) recorded from shared prototype online

    It would be great to generate Heat Maps & Analytics of what users are trying to click on...completion rates, etc.

    Maybe a "click counter" or "timer" to see how long it takes for users to accomplish a goal.

    Maybe put this info under the "Manage Links" section.

  18. Dynamic link with other CC file formats - edit in Photoshop/Illustrator auto-updates in XD

    It would be great to simply import psd files into XD through either 'file // import PSD', or, in photoshop, 'file // export to XD', without having to rework the files.

    An example for this would be a user that is designing an app in photoshop and has around 15 artboards. It would be great if the user could simply import each artboard into XD to create a wireframe to show a client / colleague, whilst also continue to make amends to the artboards in photoshop.

    This could involve having some kind of Dynamic link between Photoshop and XD, so…

  19. Export interactive PDF with clickable "PageTo" links

    Please add the option to export all artboards of the prototype as a PDF document of many pages, preserving prototype interactivity saving links as PDF internal "pageTo" links (or invisible linkTo rectangles).
    So that in this way the prototype can be navigated in the PDF file like on a web page (transitions excluded of course).
    This would allow a very efficient "deliverable" design document for the client.

  20. When creating a text field, automatically fill it with lorem ipsum.

    Well, just as the title says. When selecting a text field and dragging across an art board, fill it with lorem ipsum automatically. If you don't need a dummy text - simply start writing to overwrite it. Would make prototyping text rich websites much faster.
