  1. Repeat Grid: different icons / SVG images in each grid cell

    Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
    My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.

    It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).

    Thank you.

  2. Better svg export

    Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
    the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

    It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

    A cleaner…

    Hi,

    The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

    Cheers,
    M.

  3. Timed animations triggered while scrolling

    i hope we can trigger the timed auto animations when you scroll to a portion of your website mock. I want my elements to appear only when i pass thru them in my page prototype. This feature will create a more seamless, animation rich prototypes!

  4. Add Adobe Typekit

    Would love to work with My Typekit fonts inside XD. UX design without Character Panels such as in Illustrator is almost illegal.

  6. Export interactive prototype as native mobile app (iOS, Android)

    Hi,

    I'm Head of Brand Management in a marketing department. And more and more often we need to make a simple app to our colleagues in sales. Very simple functionality but vital information. The problem is that our development department do not have time and recourses to help us doing the coding for us.
    So basically my suggestions is quite simple: Why can't Adobe XD have a export or build function like nativ.com or Appy Pie where you can build an app without coding. I do my designs in XD, Photoshop etc. and I have a licens for Adobe CC…

  7. Clear all prototype wires

    I would like to be able to clear all prototype wires similar to how the clear all guides option works in other Adobe products.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Export HTML / CSS animation code snippets for transition animations

    It would be great to be able to make the design live with html 5 animations (for the prototyping mode), that would be usable as assets for the developers. As we can record a live preview of our design, it would be a great feature.

    Thank you !

  11. Include Baseline Grid for text

    I really like the feature on InDesign where you can view the baseline grid for text. Since the placement of text on a website depends on where it sits in its own baseline grid, it would be really helpful if there was a way to toggle it on and off.

    Having this would make it easier to know where exactly a block of text would be placed if it were say, 30px underneath an image.

    It would also really help if I wanted to make a word have a background color, so I could easily figure out how tall that…

  12. Make "None" the default transition, not "Dissolve"

    I would really like the default transition for wires to be "None," not "Dissolve." I have almost never seen a real website or app or desktop software do page transitions with a dissolve transition, so I don't understand why it's the default transition. I have to change the transition from "Dissolve" to "None" every time I create a new project. I could be the only user who wants this, but I wanted to make this request.

  14. Export size options (e.g. export only 2x version)

    The ability to select my sizes for export would be nice. At times I work on apps (as strange as it may sound) that do not require all resolutions of artwork (1x, 2x, 3x) An option to select my would be great. Similar to how Sketch handles it.

  15. Change default fill and stroke settings (color, etc.) used when drawing new shapes

    It's quite frustrating that every time I use the shape tools, I have to remove the stroke and change the fill.
    Like in ID and AI, it would be useful if the object fill and stroke remembers the previous settings, or a default could be somehow set.

  16. Repeat grid properties in the property inspector (spacing, number of rows/columns)

    Currently, there's no simple way to look up or adjust the spacing of an existing repeat grid element (other than grabbing and dragging the spacing area).

    This is sometimes bothersome because, 1) when just trying to look it up, you don't always want to change the spacing, and 2) finding the spacing adjustment area can be a bit fiddly.

    Also, when you DO want to adjust the spacing, it can be a bit tricky to get it on the exact pixel.

    Therefore, it'd be nice if the spacing property would show up as an input field in the right (properties)…

  17. Display artboards framed by a mobile device outline

    Ability to add a device outline to show context.. would be cool to even create your own device outline (currently I'm designing a UI prototype for a smart credit card, but having to use a mobile screen UI canvas to show the interactions)

  18. Ability to replace/update image files

    I wish I had the ability to select an image and be able to update the file or change the image with out having to import another image if it is exactly the same size or I updated the design.

  19. Organize artboards into Groups/Sets/Tree hierarchy

    A way to potentially group or label pages (even just with a colored circle) would be incredibly helpful with staying organized and working through different user flows and scenarios.

  20. Set width and height in percentages

    When you enter a width for an object, also be able to set the size using a percent.
