  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. View and share design prototypes at actual size

    The full-screen feature is nice but I need to be able to show clients what my designs will look like at actual size on the web. The prototypes need to be displayed at the size they are designed at. This is the one feature that would justify me switching from using InVision for my prototyping.

  6. More slide transitions

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

  7. Customize Keyboard Shortcuts

    I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

  10. Multiple pages (separate sets of artboards)

    Sometimes, for 1 design project we need to make several options and to do so currently we need to create new files every time and name them with versions. So I think it would be really cool if we can create multiple designs within the same file and then be able to have multiple prototype links also based on different options, that would organize stuff and make it much easier.
    Thanks!

  11. Expand Stroke / Create Outlines (convert stroke to separate filled path)

    In Illustrator, I can draw an object and then use Expand to convert the strokes to a fill.

    I would like to be able to do this in XD

  12. 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.

  13. Adding colors, styles, symbols to CC library from within XD

    Just like in Illustrator, it should be possible to add colors, styles, symbols, ... to a new or existing CC library.

    At this moment, the CC library is of not much use when you're creating a brand new project in a team of XD designers.

    Thanks!

    Best regards,
    Guy

  14. 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. PDF Export - compression options to reduce file size

    Exported PDF are too big. Please add compression options like InDesign.

  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.

    -Elaine

  17. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. Option to publish all screens even without prototyping

    If I started prototyping and publish design specs without the prototype linking all the screens the design spec shows only the screens that are linked in the prototype. The specs link doesn't get updated even if I remove all the links.
