  1. Support sound/audio

    What is it with Adobe's hatred of sound? They keep coming out with apps that make it easier to assemble web sites yet ALWAYS exclude sound. There are a lot of creative projects I'd like to work on with Adobe but they require sound files. From a web site where you click and drag loops to mix the audio live, to a kid's virtual zoo where you click on an animal to hear the sound it makes, to a site made for visually-impared people who have to navigate by sound, to a site about how orchestras work where you can…

  2. Export to JPG (JPEG)

    We often send clients JPGs to show them the design, would be good to be able to export individual/all artboards (like in illustrator).

    We’re pleased to announce that JPG export is now available in the November release of Adobe XD. If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of the application and select “Check for App Updates.” If you’re looking for improvements on this feature, please do file a new request!

  3. [Windows] Symbols

    I'd like to be able to create, use, and manage symbols using a symbols panel on Windows.

  4. Shared Style Guide within members of a team (Object & Text Styles)

    Being able to create and share Style Guides to be used within teams. For instance, one member of a team can create a style guide with several object/paragraph/font styles to be shared with team members working on the same project. Within the object style allowing dynamic styles of say, a button, to be shared would be helpful as well.

    I'd like a contextual layers panel like the one we have on the Mac version of XD.

    Drag and drop in the layers panel is now available for Windows! Download the June release of XD today for the complete layers panel experience.

    If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon and select “Check for App Updates.”

  6. Get assets on design spec mode

    On the design specs mode, I should be able to direct developers to where a specific asset is. Sometimes I want to attach a link to an asset (if it's common use, a logo hosted on S3 for an example), sometimes the dev needs to be able to download the asset (be it an image already scaled to 1x, 2x, etc or the code of an SVG to embed into a page) and the third case is that I need to attach some free text (for example a path on our local server or the icon code on font awesome…

    Hi All,

    With XD’s 11.0 release (which happened moments ago), we’ve made this feature live.

    You can now save time and give developers the ability to extract and download assets from Design Specs. Mark layers as assets for export and send as a Design Specs link. Developers can download all the assets in the file format they need

    As always, please do let us know about what you think of this feature and feel free to log the improvements that you’d like to see in this workflow as new requests at https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests?category_id=323330

    Thanks,
    Harish

  7. Pen and touch support in windows 10

    Currently it's not possible at all to work with Experience Design using touch or pen input on Windows 10. Please improve that.

  8. Import/Open Sketch files

    I would like to transition from Sketch to XD, but with so many clients files created in Sketch, I would need an easy way to open the Sketch files in XD and save them as native XD files.

    Hi everyone,

    Happy to announce that we’ve just released this feature!

    You can bring a Sketch file into XD by simply opening it with the CMD-O command or by selecting “Open” from the “File” menu. It automatically converts into an XD file with your artboards, layers, symbols, and effects ready to use.

    You can find more details about March release here:
    https://theblog.adobe.com/march-2018-update-adobe-xd/

    We’re continuing to improve this feature, so expect even more in the upcoming releases. In the meantime, check what’s currently supported here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/open-sketch-files-in-xd.html

    Let us know your feedback.

    Cheers,
    Dan

  9. Show color RGB / RGBA value

    In our development, the programmer needs to use the RGB value to label the color, but in this update,the version removed the RGB color information, we have to need for an additional conversion to get the results.

  11. Color swatches

    Introduce swatches so I can keep colors consistent. When a swatch is updated every instance of the color changes.

  12. Radial Gradients

    Add Radial Gradients support. Let's discuss.

    (Btw: Linear Gradients are now shipping. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12925683-add-gradients-to-appearance-panel)


    Note: radial gradients are shaped like concentric circles. If you're looking for gradients that sweep around like the hands of a clock, please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15902767-angular-gradient instead!

  14. Show measurements between objects using hotkey

    Holding a hot-key like option (⌥) would display measurement guides between the selected object and other objects. Similar to how Sketch handles this now... http://www.sketchapp.com/learn/documentation/10-canvas/3-measuring.html

  15. Option to capture mic audio in record mode

    I've started using XD in office for wireframing live projects.

    Now when I record the prototype video, I often need to narrate what's going on - esp if it's a WIP. This would help to kick-off future conversations with the client in the right direction.

    Hence a record 'mic audio' option in XD would be extremely useful.

  16. Comment on shared prototype without having to sign in

    People should be able to leave comments on a shared web prototype online without having to make an Adobe account.

    The stakeholders we want feedback from (clients, management, etc.) do not all use Adobe CC, so requiring even a free account adds an extra barrier before people can comment.

    With this month’s release of XD, your stakeholders can now sign in as a guest without a CC account and comment on your prototypes. Any prototype that already has commenting enabled should now see a “sign in as guest” option at the bottom of the comments panel if you’re not already signed in.

  17. Remember names of exported assets

    I like the idea that you simplify layers and groups. But when we come to code flow, renaming all assets after export is very waste of time.

  18. Fullscreen Prototype


    1. Full screen should go full screen. InVision App allows a full-screen takeover when viewing a prototype. Why does the content go into a small rectangle centered in the browser with Adobe product notes in the corners? I am designing full screen, the prototype should follow that format. There is no need to see things like the date and time or "Made with Adobe XD." My client doesn't care, they are not designers. The client is my focus.


    2. Upon clicking the "Fullscreen" button in the top corner, the screen still has a black background bordering the content. It should snap to…

  20. Transition: None

    Would like to have an option for NO transition effect. Dissolve transition effect looks awkward when just wanting to toggle between buttons in playing the prototype.
