  1. 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

    • 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.

      • Built-in Library of Wireframe Elements, for generic web / mobile design

        To be able to use XD as a useful tool for content architecting/wireframing (before design, before prototype) - a library of generic common web and mobile web elements would be very useful (in an easily accessible panel - NOT by copying and pasting from a template file).

        For example:
        - Image/Logo (resizable) placeholder
        - Horizontal and Vertical Nav placeholder
        - Icon library (like hamburger, search, map point, etc)
        - Text block (resizable) placeholder
        - Scrollbar (horizontal, vertical) placeholder

        etc

        Think Balsamiq, or OmniGraffle wireframe tools for example.

        • 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.

            In the release today, if you go into full screen mode, your prototype is now sized to actual size. So, designs will scroll automatically depending on browser size.

            In the future, we plan to allow you to choose your scaling option, but, this is the first step towards that.

          • 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.

            • Color Management (set color profiles)

              XD should be a color managed application.

              I'm not sure what the full context of color management is within the UI/UX industry is, or if it's something that many pay attention to, or if it's just left un-managed.
              Currently a vast majority of designers are using high gamut displays to design. Our final output will however differ greatly without some proper color management implemented. If color managment is implemented, we can at least visually soft proof our design and colors to specific devices (ie: New iOS devices that support P3 color gamut), or older sRGB devices.
              At the same time…

              • 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"…

                • Select multiple items across different groups

                  Shift+Click allows to select multiple items.
                  Cmd+Click allows to select inside a group.
                  Cmd+Shift+Click would be nice if it selected items across different groups.

                  It's very useful to change details (i.e. color) across multiple items inside groups (i.e. icons).

                  Thanks!

                  • 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

                      • 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!

                        • 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.

                              well it doesn't make sense why you can only record the video when someone is on your computer trying out the prototype, and just thinking you should be able to record how someone is using it when they are overseas

                              • InDesign integration

                                Would like XD to work with InDesign in much the same manner that AI and PSD files do. This might be more of a feature request for InDesign however I imagine they both play a role in working together.

                                Ultimately, in order for a design to be implemented correctly, we need to provide a detailed UI specification for engineering. This specification is often worked on by interaction and visual designers which is part of what makes InDesign an ideal solution for us.

                                The prototyping functionality is great for communicating how a design could work, but we still need an accompanying…

                                • 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.

                                  • Export files to flinto and Principle

                                    What I love from XD is the ability to design and prototype in the same tool without having to install hundreds of plugins and the lightweight that it is. Sometimes have to animate things faster with custom animations and I use these tools (Principle and Flinto) to create them. I've been obligated to recreate my designs into this tools then animate. It should be nice to have a export tool to this tools or others.

                                    • 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)

                                      • 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!

                                        • Animations that react to a phone's accelerometer

                                          In a perfect world I would like have dynamics animations on differents layers when you scroll or move the phone. It will improve a lot the possibilities of the soft.

                                          Dynamic animations
