  2. Sessions With Adobe XD Customers

    If Adobe could provide online sessions, or in their stores, with customers who use Adobe XD. To explain, many people aren't familiar with the tool and it takes a lot of practice. This occurs to me, and one of the big tech companies are already doing this, Apple. There is something called 'Today At Apple,' which includes loads of different sessions to help customers. (Link https://www.apple.com/today/) If Adobe XD could include this within the app on Mac or the phone app, it would be useful for it's customers.

  3. Set layer order to match destination artboard before auto-animating

    When auto-animating to another artboard, currently the order of layers in the layer panel is as it appears in the source artboard, and doesn't update to the order in the destination artboard until the animation is complete. This results in layers being covered by other layers, making it difficult to simulate an element scaling and rising above other elements on the z axis (see attachment).

    It would be preferable if the order of layers in the layers panel was first updated to the order in the destination artboard, then the animation begins.

  4. Copy & Paste without rotation info (from original)

    - draw a rectangle
    - adjust the round of corner
    - adjust width & height to fit the parent shape
    - drop an vertical image into the rectangle (all good)
    =======
    - select the group, rotate 90degree
    - copy the group of shapes (including parents shapes and the rect inside)
    - paste
    - try to drop a new vertical image into the rectangle (NOK)
    (we will find the image is rotated, as the new group is created with 'rotation info' inherited from the original one.)

    can we have 'paste as new'?

  5. Default swatches panel

    The ability to have a series of default colour swatches that loads with a new document - same as PS and AI. Saves alot of time for wireframing having the series of grey swtaches available rather than creating new each time

  7. Assign an object/group to an artboard for auto animate

    If I want to use auto animate to have an object/group move onto the screen from off of it (or vice versa), I have to group it with an invisible object that stays on the screen so that XD knows the object/group is a part of that artboard when it is off-screen. I could be totally missing a way around this but I can't find anything about it online. If there was a way to assign an object to an artboard even if it isn't touching said artboard, that would fix this problem.

    Essentially this makes adding new animations a…

  8. Ability to export entire screens at a custom size

    I would like the ability to export entire screens at a custom size for use in promotional designs and print settings. When choosing "export for design" it exports it at an unusable quality with no option to export at a higher resolution. When everything is being designed with vector elements it makes no sense that I can't export at a higher resolution. The only workaround I have found is to export for android and only take the highest resolution, but this is a hassle and still somewhat limiting.

  9. Randomize Artboard Trigger Action

    Hello Dear All,

    It would be really nice to click and reaching random page! Therefore node system should able to multiple connections between artboards then we can choose 'random' in actions!

    Thanx

  10. Change text style based on artboard width

    Please make it so that the style of the text you have selected highlights the style used in the left hand styles column.

    ALSO please give us the option to set responsive sizes for the text styles. In other words the style sniffs the page width and selected the break point from within the style.

    THANKS

  12. Template option

    Can you give "save as" the ability to save "as a template" so that you can't overwrite an existing document. Indesign has this, and is very useful for protecting original documents that must never be changed.
    ie. You open a template doc, and the only option you have when you save is "save as", therefore keeping the original intact.

  13. Artboard tool in side bar should be higher up

    Workflow would suggest that the create Artboard tool should not be second to last on the side bar but closer to the top since one of the first things you do is create an artboard.

  14. Increase contrast and size of Design Spec measurements

    The pink with white type for specs is hard to read. Not ADA compliant. And when I enlarge the board to see the specs the specs don't enlarge. The board does but the text in the spec doesn't. See the video.

  15. Scaling a group should keep objects on pixel grid

    When you resize two objects, even if booth have the same size, they will resize to a value out of the pixel grid, with decimals. (see video attached)

    I’m leaving this open, but I wanted to let you know that this is working as designed at the moment. We optimize for pixel precision over a potentially jerky resize behavior and skewing of elements to keep things on pixel.

  16. em unit in design specs

    Having 'px', 'pt' and 'dp' as size unit is good but we need to use 'em' most commonly as flexible and scalable relative unit. Expecting 'EM' unit to the list.

  18. Invite option for public prototypes

    With private protoypes I can invite people by email address, so that I can then mention them in the comments using the @ symbol, even if they havent commented before.

    I would like to have the same functionality for public prototypes, where this is currently not possible and I have to wait until they leave a comment on their own, in order to get their attention using mentions.

  19. swap distribute buttons

    Seems like the distribute buttons should be switched.

    I'm trying to remember that the tools to align longitudinally are on the left and the tools to align laterally are on the right. That way I can be faster in the UI. However, the distribute alignment tools do not follow the longitudinal/lateral categories. Distribute laterally is on the left (with the longitudinal alignment buttons) and the Distribute longitudinally is on the right (with the lateral alignment buttons).

  20. Text-To-Speech language selection within app.

    Ability to select text-to-speech language per action used.

    1. Example: Creating a mobile app with text reading capabilities. If the app has a "Select Language" page, then the language read back should match the language selected.
    2. Having TTS language selection as part of each speech playback action created would be a great inclusion, especially if an app is developed with multiple languages.
