  1. Tabbed design view for multiple files

    Similar to Photoshop or Illustrator (See attached file), it would be valuable to allow for multiple files to be opened and arranged in the design pane using tabs. This would give users a quick way to switch between their projects and will provide a much better workflow in general.

    This is a must for me!

  2. Customer Journey map

    Since it's an UX design app, why not add a customer journey map tab? UX designers could start from it, designing the user experience, defining channels, touchpoints, personas, actions and feelings... and then going deeper into visual designs and prorotypes.

  3. Integrate with Adobe Comp CC

    Allow adobe comp app the capability to export to experience design. Also allow users to select a new project or add to an existing one. This would allow users to create on the go.

  4. Line/stroke ending in arrows

    Line start and end should allow arrows, triangle, or circles


    Original request:
    (this covers some topics already tracked elsewhere on UserVoice: please upvote those other suggestions if you're interested in dotted lines and CSS-driven styling).

    In CSS and other adobe tools we have Stroke or Border options like type or style (dotted, dashed) start and end (arrows, triangle, circles). In XD we do currently have weight and color options, though it will be amazing to add these options to reflect dotted arrow line or dashed border around a rectangle etc.

    Several of the items originally mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already:

    The only suggestion I think we don’t have listed yet is arrow-head line endings. To keep the request list tidy, I will change the title here so it is specifically focused on that one idea. Please upvote the other links above so your interest in those features is captured too.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  5. "Scaling Tool" (scale stroke weight, shadow effects & corners when resizing)

    Ability to scale attributes proportionately. When creating shapes, buttons, or icons within XD sometimes they need to be scaled to different sizes. Currently when scaling these shapes, buttons, or icons created within XD we can no scale some of the attributes proportionately.

    As an example I create a container box with a stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text. If I need to scale proportionately, like say 50%, the stroke, border-radius, shadow, and paragraph text don't scale proportionately.

    (Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

  6. Add Interactive Native Widgets/Controls to Prototypes

    Support for native device functions (e.g. Cordova).

    Example dropdown selection, media players, maps, etc.

    This would increase the demo's effectiveness and allow for a more real-world prototype.

  8. Simpler way to Crop Photos

    There should really be a tool to crop photos by selection (maybe by double clicking on it and using the control points) but it took me a while just to figure out that i have to mask by shape just to crop a photo.

    We’ve begun working on an easier way to crop your images without using an image mask and will be releasing this in an upcoming release!

  9. Repeat Grid overrides / inheritance (some styles differ in an item, rest still sync with other list items)

    It will be great if repeat grid work in way like this:

    I want to show how recommended item will look like. I'm double-clicked wished element title and turn off "Fill" checkbox in "Inherit" panel. Now I can change color only for this title, but if I will change font-size, for example, all titles will change it, because "font-size" checkbox is active. If I click "Fill" again, my title will be back to gray.

    All checkbox is active by default — so behavior will be just like now and it will take full control and understanding what and when happens.

  10. Hide all panels

    Ability to view only stage, some kind of preview mode, no toolbars & right panel. It will let you focus on content.
    (like F in Photoshop)

    Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!

    I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.

  11. More slide transitions

    Few more nice slide transitions wouldn't kill anyone, would it :)

  12. Allow component instance overrides to be inherited by all states

    Currently (XD 24.0.22.19), if I drop an instance of a component and then adjust part of it (text in a button, size of the instance, etc.), that override is only applied to the selected state of the instance. So, if I have a button with many states (normal, hover, disabled, active, default action, etc.) I have to manually apply that override to each state of the instance. This is extremely tedious and error prone.

    Please provide the ability to have an override of an instance be inherited by all states in that component instance.

  13. Nested Symbol Overrides: swap inner symbol in different copies of outer symbol

    So I started playing with Symbols Override for the June Update, but I feel this feature is still a little limited to what we can do.

    Like I want to create a master nav bar with active and default states. But the override doesn't allow me to have that flexibility.

    Same thing applies to a tab bar for iOS apps.

    Right now I feels this Symbols Override feature only works for Buttons when you want to keep the same button styling but have different text. Or maybe cards with bitmap images, but not in a repeated grid list view format.

  15. Annotations in design mode

    As explained the title, the ability for designers to add notes whilst working, to art boards, to remember ideas, note down comments from users/team members etc

  16. CONVERT TO CODE

    We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.

    Hi, all-

    “Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.

  17. Adjust line spacing between individual lines in area text

    Currently if I want to change the leading between sentences in a text box, the change effects the entire text box. I would like to have the same functionality as Ai,Id, etc; by having the ability to change leading for individual sentences or to be able to separate a new paragraph from the last.

  18. Showing Layers AND Assets at the Same Time

    I can't believe this suggestion doesn't already exist, but I work on a 32" or a 27" monitor all the time. I have plenty of screen real estate. Why not let me view both Assets and Layers panels at the same time?

  19. Export to InVision with assets to support "Motion" and prototyping (like Craft)

    I would like Adobe XD to be able to export/sync to InVision to support "Motion".

    "Motion" is a closed beta at Invision that supports micro animations/interactions – similar functionality to what thirdparty apps/services like Atomic, Marvel and Flinto has to offer.

    By enabling Adobe XD to export its assets to Invision in such a way that "Motion" inside InVision can be applied to the XD wireframes/prototypes/designs inside InVision.

    Preferably XD export to InVision should support sync, perhaps via Dropbox.

    PS. For the long run XD could add "Motion" functionality inside XD and thus reverse sync the motions from Invision "Motion"…

  20. Find Font (globally replace one font with another)

    Include a "find font" panel like in Adobe Illustrator to globally replace one font with another. Even with the symbol/assets panel this is hard for documents that you did not architect and may require a lot of extra work (i.e. the iOS UI kits in a windows environment where San Francisco font has to be downloaded from third party sources and converted manually to .ttf)
