  1. Shortcut to activate eyedropper to pick a color

    I really miss the (l) colorpipette/colorpicker shortcut. Because I now have too much (mouse/pen)movement to the right panel, in stead of doing all with shortcuts... This and more shortcuts from photoshop/illustrator like (z) for zoom.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Gradient color swatches

          Thanks for adding gradients !
          Right now, we can add colours to our 'favourites' with the + button, could we also save gradients when in the gradient tool?

          Something really nice too would be to allow the pipette to pick the gradient of a shape/artboard.

          These too would save a lot of time !!

            While XD doesn’t yet have this feature to save gradients in the color picker popup’s swatches, you do have several other options today:

            - Store gradients in the Assets panel swatches: open the Assets panel on the left side (View > Assets), and click the “+” next to Colors. Then select any other object and click the gradient swatch to apply it to that object.

            - Copy gradient fills between objects: use regular Copy on the source object, then select the destination object and choose Paste Appearance.

          • More slide transitions

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

            • Glyphs Palette

              With FontAwesome font files and the like, it's impractical to make quick use of their icons/glyphs without a palette, as the entire character set does not use qwerty, but are special/hidden characters.

              I can live without granular type tools like kerning, but not having accessibility to the glyphs of a given font file is a dearly missed feature from working in Photoshop or Illustrator. At least on OS X, the OS character viewer is not as friendly as Adobe's other implementations of the glyphs palette.

              Thanks for your hard work.

              • New mode: IA Flow

                Simple view to map out the IA (Information architecture), decided feature requests, page relationships, etc. before designing.

                This would keep all design blueprints in one system instead of heading out to ___(Mind map or flowchart app of choice)__ to stay on track. Especially when working on small teams.

                May reflect a similar (though severely simplified) view of Prototype mode.

                • 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.

                  • Font Awesome integration

                    When I need Font Awesome icons, I have to go and create them in Illustrator, rasterise them and import them into XD.
                    My FontAwesome ttf font family appears in the font list but it doesn't work (not applied to selection).
                    Ideally I would want to select FontAwesome from the font list (or as a glyph), type it, and rasterise/vectorise it.

                    • 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.

                      • Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour

                        Most of modern apps have some custom behaviour - for example

                        In user profile, you see big profile picture, but when you scroll down to see user posts - picture gets smaller and moves to the corner.

                        Would be cool to be able to treat scroll position as kind of keyframes timeline, where you can modify styles of some elements and tween them depending on how much some view is scrolled.

                        Some tools have kind of similar option - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRHuAq4PqQo - check first 30 secs.

                        • Find Missing Font

                          When you open a document and it says a font is missing, but tracking down that missing font can be a nightmare.

                          Often this can occur when moving from one system to another (home to work for example), so doing a find and replace would be very helpful, but just finding the "issue" would be invaluable, because sometimes a type box may not be readily visible to even find it to correct.

                              • Export to Muse CC

                                It would be so useful to layout your designs in XD and then to export them straight to muse in the .muse format to refine or to be able to open an XD widget in Muse to prototype your iPhone layout, for example.

                                • Find and Replace - Text

                                  It would be great to have a generic "find and replace" inside the edit menu like most text editors have. What would be even better is if you could select the find and replace function to use the current art board, or all art boards. This is super helpful if you're mocking up redundant content that has a slight name change between screens.

                                  • Apply gradient to border/stroke

                                    When I import a SVG file with a gradient on the stroke, it becomes gray in XD. And there is no way that I can make the border/stroke with gradient color.

                                    I feel it will be nice to apply gradient to the border so that I don't have to expand the stroke.

                                    • Update interaction wires across symbols (keep in sync)

                                      Adding a wire to an object inside a symbol or changing a wire inside a symbol should create/change the same wire/link across other instances of that symbol in the same way styles/text etc changes other instances.

                                      This would allow navigation to be edited throughout a project.

                                      I love the convenience of symbols, and I love that we can now add links to objects within a symbol, but not being able to propagate that interaction to other symbols is a problem for me.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.

                                            -Elaine
