  1. Define fonts family for a project or for an artboard

    It would be great to define font families that will be used in a project by adding them to the artboard property panel.
    This would help to
    - limit numbers of font used in a webdesign
    - change the font of a whole project

    - maintain character styles easyly
    - avoid to miss some font replacement

  2. reveal color in assets panel available when assets panel is not open

    I would like to be able to reveal the color in the assets panel, even if the assets panel is not open. If I have the layers panel open the option is currently not in the context menu. It would be great if it was an option regardless of what panel is open and if clicked it would automatically open the appropriate assets
    panel.

  3. Wacom Tablet Support for Prototype Link Navigation Scroll

    Wacom Tablet scroll support needed for live prototypes. Our team use XD and love the application, we use Wacom tablets for all of our design work and have to dig out and dust off the old Mouse when viewing prototypes - which is a bit of a pain and I am sure we are not the only design studio to share this pain!!

    Support for tablet scrolling would be very beneficial.

    Thanks and keep up the amazing work

    Regards

    Michael

    While I understand the need for precision, creating grids that snap off-pixel actually makes designing for screens less accurate, as it often forces elements to anti-alias, leading to less crisp artwork when you output. Are you absolutely sure you need columns that are off-pixel? If so, can you explain why?

  5. Lock file as long as it's opened in XD

    As long as I'm working in XD I don't want my Cloud Storage to upload the file I'm working on. Therefore it's necessary to lock it until I close XD. See Affinity Designer in combination with OneDrive for example.

  7. Multiple character styles in one text frame

    It would be helpful to apply more than one character style to text in a text box. It would be particularly helpful when formatting long text like a blog post.

  8. Select corners and set radius

    My natural workflow of setting corner radius is to select the corners of an object that I need and then go to the sidebar and set the radii for them. Sadly XD doesn't show the radius field anymore when corners are selected. Please fix this since selecting an object and then think which of those fields represent which corner it is uses way too much headspace.

  9. Live preview for tablets - Android & iOS

    There's live preview now for mobile devices; both Android and iOS and that's great. But we need the same for tablet devices as well. For both iPads and Android tablets.

  10. Color pick (i) on paths

    Color picking should work with paths too. Am I doing something wrong?

    Note that ‘i’ actually picks the fill, not the border. For paths, you’re probably trying to change the border color. If you’re looking to change the border, I’ll merge this with the request to have the shortcut toggle to the border as well.

  12. Component Overrides

    I would love to have the ability to create overrides for master components. For example if I create a card, I would like to be able to select a text field, and in the properties panel have an overrides section where I can hit add. The properties panel would then give me a text field where I could type the new text and it would update that component.

    That override field would be available on all instances of the component, each with its override content being separated from the other instances.

    However, the text itself in the component would still…

  13. Text Border / Bounding Box

    The attached screenshot has the "System" text on top of the box.

    CURRENTLY: I need to create a layer underneath to break the line and make the system on top of it. This is troublesome if I'm working with a page that has 10000-000000-00000 input fields.

    ASK: If i have a way to make the text' border 5, i can effectively eliminate the need to create a layer underneath, the amount of work is going to be halved, and that will scale.

    ASK2: if not, can i have a solid box to cover the line where the text will be…

  15. Define multiple strings at once

    Make it possible to define multiple Strings by selecting all elements that are supposed to hold those strings. Saves a lot of time.

  16. Add Link stings in Components

    When converting an element with strings into a component, the strings attached should be included. It's helpful when you convert a menu bar into a component.

  17. Hand tool not working

    The hand tool doesn't seem to work, I am trying with the keyboard (h) and (space bar), first the hand tool doesn't appear, and when it does I can't move around, I need to zoom in and out to navigate through artboards which makes it really hard to work in XD.

    I am using windows 10, and a wacom tablet as well.

  18. If I create a link for one of the process and then have to create a link of sharing for the other flow then the previous link disappears.

    If I create a link for one of the process and then have to create a link of sharing for the other flow then the previous link disappears. The new link not created but it gets updated. Hence all the comments on the previous link/ flow are lost!!!

    Thanks for your feedback. You can actually update the previous link by selecting it from the drop-down in Share Mode, and then updating that link. Alternatively, you can update a link with any subset of your document you want to, but any artboards that are not in that flow would have their comments lost. Can you explain what you’re looking for that is outside of this workflow?

  19. adding an action/trigger directly to an element or component in Prototype mode.

    I would like to update allow linking or adding an action/trigger directly to an element or component in Prototype mode. This would allow a better workflow and faster turnaround time as well as allow the prototype to function better in smaller file size as well since there would be less imagery and artboards involved.

  20. Coedit Collaborate Save Notification Frequency

    When co-editing (collaborating), we are bombarded with the save and sync pop-up every 30-60 seconds. It is a major pain. Is it possible to set the save/update frequency? My team does not work on the same artboard or components at the same time, so we do not need to sync with each other os frequently.

    It sounds like you don’t have coediting actually enabled. It is currently a per-document setting that the document owner need to opt into from the Invite to Edit menu. Once coediting is enabled, you should not receive a “save and sync” pop-up.
