  2. Scissor tool/slice vector path

    Making more complex vector drawings is difficult without a tool like the scissor tool from Illustrator.

    Creating arches like the attached image in Illustrator is super easy with the combination of the scissor and circle tool, but in XD it is very difficult.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Set width and height in percentages

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

  6. Round corners on path anchor points

    It's currently possible to round corners on primitive shapes. As soon as additional anchor points are added, or a shape is created from scratch using the pen tool, the ability to round corners is removed.

    It would be nice to have this option at all times.

  7. Locked objects should be completely disabled

    At the moment a locked object can still be selected, hindering the ability to select an object underneath.

    It would be great if locked object would be completely disabled, similar to how an illustrator locked object behaves.

  8. Support all the same attributes as CSS box-shadow (add spread & inner shadow)

    In short:
    Be able to apply the same CSS box-shadow attributes on UI elements in Xd.

    Long version:
    Shadow on Xd works fine but still limited compared with CSS box-shadow capabilities. It's frustrating to be limited to 3 values only (x, y and B) when you know you can deliver better shadows in development.

    The attributes should be similar to make the transition from design to development (or sometimes from development to design) easy. For example, in Photoshop it is tricky because the units are different (like spread as % in PS and px in CSS) and you can't get…

  9. Nested Overlays

    Allow an Overlay to be applied to another overlay. For example, you have a dialog box Overlay and inside you want to have a drop-down menu which has an Overlay of a list of options. Currently what happens is the drop-down Overlay replaces the dialog Overlay.

    I think this is something fundamental that would make Overlays even more powerful. Its omission almost feels like a bug.

  10. Kerning options for text

    Splitting off from the typographic features (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12927885-typographic-features)

    Let's discuss what control over kerning you'd like to see in XD.

  11. Paragraph spacing / Soft Returns

    User should be able to use a soft return (shift+return) to break a line of text without adding paragraph spacing .

  12. Options for viewport vs fixed overlay

    Be able to choose between an overlay that appears over the viewport or an overlay that is fixed to a specific position within the artboard. This way we can account for two types of overlays:
    1. Overlays that are persistent like menu navigations
    2. Overlays that are situational like dropdowns within a form

  13. Tab Button should indent text

    The tab button on a keyboard doesn't indent text like it would in every other text tool in adobe suite.

    please make the tab button indent paragraph text.

  14. Display online comments in desktop application

    It's great to have add and see comments in the online prototype. But even better (for the designer) would be to see those comments in the design file.

    I envision a third tab next to Design and Prototype: Comments (or Feedback). When you go to that tab, you see all your artboards, but you also see any comments that have been made on the online prototype. Pin or bubble icons (or whatever) appear next to artboards with comments, which you can click to pull up the comments in a comments panel (similar to the layers and symbols panels, but perhaps…

  16. Dedicated Export workspace to extract CSS styles, measurements, assets

    It would be very useful having one more tab after Design and Prototype called "Export" for example. It would let developers easily see all the necessary information about any element like the size and color of the text, the size of a button and it's position on the screen, and so on, and then easily export any element. From there

  17. Set object to default to no stroke

    Every single time I make a box or something it adds a border stroke by default. This is so annoying as I don't want a border stroke like 90% of the times. Is this a bug or something? I'm so tired of removing that border stroke!! Please Adobe, make this nightmare go away. If you insist on forcing this upon us as default then at least make a "remember this choice" checkbox or something.

  19. Automatically generated charts and graphs

    We often design Area Graphs, Doughnut Charts, Bars etc for Dashboards. Personally I switch between AI and PS to design this type of stuffs.

    But it would be great to have an easier way design Charts and Graphs in Adobe XD.

    For example, I would like the following method to design a Doughnut Chart:
    Draw a circle
    Select Doughnut Chart from Menu
    Insert Percentages and colors
    Hit OK and done!
    Similar idea for other type of graphs.

    Thanks for the Awesome work, XD Team!

  20. Color Blindness Compliance/WCAG Accessibility Tools

    I would like to see an ON/OFF switch to test for color conflicts with regard to 508 compliance.

    This is valuable to me because I design for a large company and we need to make sure that everything tests fine against 508 compliance, which includes color conflicts for color blindness and deficiencies.

    While we still don’t have the tools built right into XD (and so I’m leaving this open), we do have at least one plugin to help with color blindness checking. Please do check out the plugins section of XD to see if one will work for you!
