      • Math Calculations for Multiple Artboards of different sizes

        I was excited to hear that the June 2018 update included Math Calculations which I what I upvoted. I was surprised you said it was completed but I felt like it's not there yet.

        So here's my problem that I still ran into many times.

        I have a responsive website project with more than 100 artboards. If I change the footer height size by -40px, that means I would have to go to each artboard to manually change the height size of the artboard by -40px as well.

        I thought I could select all 100 artboards of different height size…

        • Character Styles in Inspector

          I think the styles are really helpful. Would be more convenient if they were accessible at the typeface settings in the inspector though. When I am dealing with type in a design, or parts of a design I am generally looking at the right side of the screen, whereas the left side with all the symbols, colors, etc is more for the whole document.

          • Allow the option to default the selection tool to direct select

            It would be great if we had an option of whatever we want to select group or specific layer via select tool default options. I guess it's much more frequently used to pick just one element instead of picking whole group.

            So for me, for example, it would be much easier if by default it would be to just pick one emelement by click, rather then to press CMD all the time i want to change something inside of group.

            • More information on website

              Put info on downloading on your website. WHY use a link sent via email? I use a web-based email so that option was not available. I had to use chat to find out that ould download XD through the CC app on my Mac. Your agent was very good, but a little thought on your website designers would have made that unnecessary.

              • Show/export content outisde of the artboard boundaries

                When working with and artboards I sometimes create artboard elements descriptions, which I place (as grouped text and lines) partially outside of an artboard.

                It would be beneficial to have an option to show/hide artboard elements that cross artboard boundaries.
                When exporting such artboard, XD should also be aware that, if such elements are visible, they should be also in the export.

                  • Support Bezier point data on export of SVG

                    I have issue with SVG generated by XD for usage in Icon Font generator. I use this one: https://www.npmjs.com/package/gulp-iconfont

                    There is online generator:
                    http://nfroidure.github.io/svgiconfont/

                    I attach one example file generate by XD: heart-xd.svg
                    Result: https://cl.ly/272g0m1g202H/Image%202018-06-11%20at%208.16.09%20odp..png

                    And one re-saved by Illustrator: heart-illustator.svg
                    Result: https://cl.ly/28382e3k2v0C/Image%202018-06-11%20at%208.16.56%20odp..png

                    Because if I open the svg in illustrator and re-save it, it'll work fine. I am suspecting the svg syntax in XD doesn't work properly.

                    I got information that XD SVG does not export bezier point data so scenario you’re describing is expected with how the feature is currently designed.

                    Maybe connected to this request:
                    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/31672270-better-svg-export

                    • Redline Capability

                      It would be nice to have a measurement tool in the toolbox area that allows the designer to create redline layers. Fireworks used to have a ruler tool that would allow something like this. Once a design is approved, it can be quickly marked up with padding and margin spacing info in the same document without having to go to a third party tool.

                      • Unnatural scrolling on iPad

                        When scrolling through artboards it happens very unnaturally. As soon as my finger moves 1cm it swipes to the next artboard.

                        A more natural behavior is that the artboard swipes "with my finger".

                        • Reference points to the vertical and horizontal centers when distorting a shape

                          When I'm distorting a shape (say a rectangle) into another shape (say a trapezoid), I'd like to know see reference guide to the vertical and horizontal centers, so I know how far to move the distortion points.

                          • Allow a global layer that can be hidden/shown on export

                            When designing prototypes, I like to add instructions or comments for the developers so I can explain actions like what happens on hover, or when to make a particular section visible.

                            I also add special buttons for "Home" and "Back" to each artboard to make it easy to get to my custom-made menu of all screens in the prototype.

                            And lastly, I sometimes use a bootstrap background on my artboard to help with layout alignment.

                            What would really make things amazing is if I could put each group of associated items in a global layer that I choose whether or…

                                    • Pan with ctrl+scrolling the mouse wheel

                                      It would be nice if you could pan the same way as with other Adobe products using ctrl+scrolling the mouse wheel. I find myself zooming in when trying to pan.

                                      • A Way to Block Some Users from From Commenting

                                        I had some issues with an employee who was commenting a storm of uneducated comments on some of my published prototypes.

                                        The prototypes I post are mainly for handing off specs to developers and to discuss aspects of the UI with them. Other people outside this workflow are able and welcome to look at the prototypes. However, it is our expectation that people outside the Design-Dev relationship should refrain from making comments. If they do make a comment, they . should only make comments that pertain to their profession and not to propose design changes since they are not designers…
