  1. Highlight related symbol when an instance is selected

    As a designer (working in a complex document) when I select an item on an artboard, if it happens to be a symbol (if Symbol Library panel is open), I would like the corresponding symbol in the Symbol Library to be highlighted. This will help me to locate it so I can name or delete it from the library. Then, if I selected every artboard on a document it would highlight all of the used symbols in the Symbol Library. This would help me to identify any unused symbols - for deletion/cleanup.

  2. Multiple Interactions on a Single Element

    Allow for multiple interactions on a single elements. Aka, be able to drag multiple wires from a single object.

    Use case 1: When designing a carousel, a user should be able to swipe on an object left or right and navigate to the next or previous slide.

    Use case 2: When designing an app with similar interactions to Bumble or Tinder, the test subject should be allowed multiple interactions on the same object. Swipe up, down, left, or right.

    We introduced the ability to add multiple interactions on a single element in the most recent version of XD. You can select an object and select the + button on the wire or in the prototype mode property inspector to add an interaction!

  3. [Windows] Share to web

    I'd like to be able to share my prototype to the web so that my stakeholders can view them.

  4. Make nudge grid-dependent

    It would be really nice if you can make the nudge (Shift + Arrow) work with the same size as the grid by default or add some tool to change it. I think this way we can work even faster.

    For example: for an 8px grid, make the nudge 8px instead of the default 10px; for a 4px grid, nudge 4 px and so on.

    Additionally, another mode could be added to make the nudge twice the size of the grid. For a 4px grid, nudge 8px.

    It's the same principle as nudg.it for Sketch, but without the hassle of…

  5. Select behind/select by path only

    Would like the ability to be able to select a object/path behind another with a cmd+double click (?) as per indesign, or be able to 'select by path only' like illustrator

  6. Revert to old link after creating a new link

    Hi! I just accidentially created a new link for a project when I intended to update the link. I can not find a way to revert to the old link. This is important in this scenario because we had notes to/from the client in the old link that we now are copy/pasting into the new link, but it would be ideal to simply revert and delete the accidental new link. Thanks for considering this!

  7. Relative positioning within a group

    Relative positioning in a group will allow us to create custom UI components.
    Attributes such as alignment, distribute, padding and margin between two or more objects will allow flexibility to resize a group without re-arranging internal objects.

    Unlike responsive behaviour, this feature does not care about artboard size, but treat a group as a mini-artboard.

    In September, we released the Responsive Resize feature, which gives you both the flexibility to resize automatically as well as define the relationship between objects using constraints. For more details: https://theblog.adobe.com/september-2018-release-of-adobe-xd-responsive-resize-timed-transitions-and-more/?scid=8df38ebb-9534-4044-9f0c-e4ffd86c6fbe&mv=social&mv2=owned_social If you’d like to see refinements, please do feel free to file a new ticket here on UserVoice!

  9. Make design specs password protected optionally

    Description:
    The generated url to a design spec should be password protected optionally .

    Value:
    It is important that the customers data is handled properly. A password protection for the exchange of design specs can be an argument for or against the use of a layout software.A feature liek this would provide further arguments for using Adobe XD.

  12. 1 click exporting of assets

    Currently if I design mobile app assets at 1x I have to rescale individual assets at different sizes to export them seperately per platform.

    I'd really like to see a one click export for both platforms from a 1x designed screen. 1x screesn are key when testing and there isn't an option setup a project at different scales.

    Majority of my assets are vector, especially for the all important app iconography.

    Photoshop has something like this at the moment be great to see something like this in XD.

    Thanks

    We currently have this feature built into the export in Adobe XD. You can export, select the device type, and then click on export for multiple versions. You can also now batch export by marking an asset or a group for batch export, then select Export > Batch.

  13. A text with multiple styles only the first one is show on design specs

    For an example, when I have some bold text inside a paragraph, the design specs for that paragraph should state that not only that text is Arial 12px but also has some bold inside.

  14. Multiple interactions on a single artboard

    We need to add multiple ways of moving from one screen to another. Currently the only way to do this is to add the interactions to various elements on the artboard, which makes it difficult to find where those interactions are.

    For example, to move from artboard A to artboard B, a user could press Home, Down or say "Artboard A". I can only add one of these interactions to the artboard as a whole at the moment.

  15. [Windows] name export svg

    It's cool that we now have the option of exporting SVG files with the february update - But unless I'm blind it does not seem like there is any option to name the file that one wants to export? It would be very nice if it was possible to choose a custom filename like "car.svg" rather than "Path 823.svg" for instance.

  16. I want to be able to open a UI kit while I work on a design

    Currently the UI kits are accessible only from the "Welcome" screen.
    However, I'd like to be able to open a new design and open a UI kit (or sample file) at the same time.

  18. Change Save As behavior to remove Copy of

    Remove "Copy of" text from filename when I "Save As" — Change to number increment

    Every time I want to save a new iteration of my file, I hit Command+Shift+S to "Save As".

    XD automatically adds "copy of" to the beginning of the filename and I have to delete it every. Single. Time.

    Does anybody actually names their files this way? You'd end up with "copy of copy of copy of copy of filename" instead of a simple numbered "filename 5".

    Would be cool to see XD smartly increase the number by 1 every time like it does with the artboards.…

  19. MS Windows Priority!

    Us windows (10) user are really badly stuck for a good prototyping tool. It is awful to see, once again, that windows users of XD are trailing Mac users in terms of functionality!

    Sketchapp have ignored Windows users, which IMHO is going to be the eventual cause of their demise as most design/dev teams use a mix of OSs in house.

    I looked at Adobe XD last year and again over the past day. Windows users are still being treated as second class users to Mac users.

    Please speed up or Windows development! Features of both OSs should be released…

    Hi, all-

    Apologies for the delay, but we are definitely treating Windows as a first class citizen in the XD ecosystem. With the exception of some UWP platform limitations (specifically: preview recording, USB tethered mobile preview, and some font stuff), we’re at feature alignment and have committed to releasing all new features on Mac and Windows. We’re also investing in bringing some Windows-only features in the future, so stay tuned for that!

    I’m marking this feature as closed.

    -Elaine

  20. Dynamically refresh fonts on Windows (new fonts not available until quit & restart XD)


    1. Version 0.6.16.7 Beta

    2. Synchronize font from Typekit

    3. Sync'd font should be available in Xd

    4. Sync'd font is unavailable in Xd until after app relaunch


    other search terms: load fonts without restart, reload installed fonts automatically
