    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Import all SVG exported from Illustrator, for compatibility

                  In V1, it's clear that support for AI and PS files will be minimal. But please support SVG files. As of now, SVG files don't even appear and if they do, only parts of them are seen.

                  With SVG support, I can export all my AI artwork to SVG and import that into XD without losing any styles. This will be a great temporary fix while you work on supporting AI files. Please make this happen for V1.

                  • 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.

                    • Spacing Before or After Paragraphs

                      Would love to have the ability to adjust the spacing before or after a paragraph as InDesign and Photoshop. Right now I can change the line height, but there needs to be another setting to adjust spacing between paragraph blocks.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                          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
