  1. Dragging and Dropping Outside Items into Repeat Grids Instead of Cutting and Pasting

    After creating a repeat grid, if you have elements outside the grid that you want to add to the grid, it cannot be simply dropped into the Repeat Grid 'Group". You have to cut it and double click into the grid to paste it in.

    • Maintain scale when dragging symbol from panel

      v 0.6.2.7

      -when placing a symbol, the scale is not always correct, so I drag and drop from the symbols menu/bar, and sometimes the scale is ~70%.

      So when I release, and "place" the symbol, it grows, and isn't placed correctly, requiring me to re-select, and then re-place the symbol. Not a huge problem, but feels like an inconsistent experience, buggy, and was probably just an oversight.

      Symbols should always come off the menu bar @ 100% scale, so I only have to select and place it once.

      • Allow selection of antialiasing style on export

        I'm designing a webpage, when I exported to PNG mockup, I've got issue with the font, please find my attached files, one exported from XD and one exported from photoshop with same font family & size.

        The one XD got a bit blurry than the Photoshop one. I think the problem that I can choose "Sharp" anti-aliasing method in Photoshop. But XD seems like exporting as "Smooth" anti-alias.

        I tried to find somewhere in XD with the options. But couldn't find.

        Anybody please help. Thanks

          • Keep text highlight semi-transparent when changing leading/size of text

            Overlaying a text box on top of another pre-existing image to copy styles requires you to see what underneath the text while you are changing leading values. Have the highlight state semi-transparent ( or fully) like Sketch/other apps do.

            • Maintain canvas position when opening symbols and assets panel

              when I toggle the symbols panel open it makes my artboards (and bottom marketing bar) jump to maintain the distance from the left side of the application. I think it would be ideal to have the artboards remain in the same place

              • Pressing enter to "move" object shortcut like Illustrator

                When an object is selected, pressing enter produces this shortcut where you enter the amount you want an object to move. Super excellent stuff, but sadly is missing from XD, would love to see this in XD

                • Concatenated pages for single-file PNG

                  As with PDF files, it would be useful to have a single png file to share with clients based on selected concatenated pages based on the order selected.

                    • Ungroup Text by Line into Multiple Objects

                      When a text object has multiple lines, it may be nice to ungroup the object and have it create different text objects per line.

                      This is helpful since when in prototype mode, you can use each line for a button, instead of drawing empty boxes over top. See GIF

                      • Line Height and Font Size fields are too similar looking (easy to confuse/mistake for each other)

                        When I want to change the size of text, I keep changing the line height. Everytime! I think this part of the UI could do with a bit of a rework to address this.

                        • Corner radius needs label - icon is not clear

                          The input field for the corner radius in the right panel is not very discoverable. Its relationship to the icons just to the left of it are also not very clear unless I interact with it. Suggestion attached.

                            • Show onboarding for shared prototype view

                              There's a recurring issues we have with our prototypes, that not everyone is aware that it is possible to click within the prototypes. Hotspots are not enough, since some people don't even click on the page if they don't know that they can click anywhere.

                              It would make sense to have some sort of "onboarding" wizard that guides users of a prototype. This does not mean a guide such as "click here, now click here, click here, etc." but rather some quick hints that simply make it clear to the user that this is actually a clickable prototype and they…

                              • Zoom directly with mouse wheel when zoom text field is selected

                                Enabling the mouse wheel to control the zoom level when having the percentage selected in the zoom input panel (like in all Adobe Design Standard software).

                                This makes it easier to focus on all artboards at once providing an overview of the project as opposed to using the cursor+alt+scroll wheel, which focuses on where the cursor is currently located.

                                  • Remove spaces from Artboard name when duplicating

                                    When drag-copying dartboards to create new ones, a 'space-hypehn-space-number' is added to the name. These spaces carry over to the exported files. Obviously this is not good practice as spaces should be used in files intended for web use. Are you planning on removing these in a future update?

                                    • Design contradiction intelligence between devices & design approach

                                      As a product manager, so far loving AXD & can't wait for few top feature requests like UI, Icon libraries etc. It has made prototyping so much faster.
                                      I would recommend, if a Product manager or designer picks a certain design template such as iOS flat design or Android Material Design then recommend or suggest possible issues across web vs mobile design during design mode. For e.g. width or placement of a grid element that is responsive, recommend best practices in design mode based on the device selected.

                                      • Auto Suggestion for Text Panel

                                        Character Panel: To have Auto suggest features. It gets pretty annoying when you have to hit the drop down menu repeatedly in the workflow. This feature maybe be reused in other places as well!

                                        • Loading indication

                                          When viewing on a mobile in browser, you forgot to design the 'Loading' indication text. It sits there top left 'tucked' up in the corner.
