  1. Move the Comment field to the top of the page

    Hello,
    Would you please consider moving the Comment field to the top of the panel (just under the icons) because when you first open comments, it appears at the bottom of the screen and it feels too far away from where you just clicked. It took me and several others several glances to see where it was.

    Thanks so much,
    Mark

      • Detect/search and standardize different styles

        After a wild layout period I often have tons of different font-sizes, colors and so on … Now I have to reduce this for the developer. At this point it would be very helpful to let me show which colors+fonts+font-sizes+font-styles I have used in my project and where! If I know the place, I can decide to change a style to a common one.

        • Add context menu for copying and pasting when editing text

          When I try to copy a section of text within a text box, if I right click on the selection there are no options but if I use the keyboard shortcut cmd + c it will copy it to the clipboard for me to paste on to another art board.

          Is this by design or is it a bug? If it is by design can right click options on selected text be added please?

          • Remove automatic highlighting from "HEX" box in color picker after a color is chosen from saved swatches

            Right now, when you open up the color picker, the "HEX" box is highlighted. I get it, it's so you can manually type a value or copy the existing value easily.

            However, once you have selected a new color from a saved swatch, I think the automatic highlighting of the hex should be removed. That way, you could close the color menu by pressing "V" and returning to the regular "move" tool. Right now, I constantly type "V" to try and close the picker, but I end up typing "V"s in the hex box instead.

            Honestly, if there was an…

            • Horizontal-only-scale drag handle on short elements like text fields

              This small but frustrating issue has been such a common recurring problem for me. See attached. I know if I made the field much taller, the horizonal drag/scale handle would appear, but text fields are always short, I'm always tweaking the length, and it seems like there's room to fit the handle. Why not have it?

                You can zoom in a little bit to get the middle handle to show up. Basically, we end up in a situation where the circles overlap, and you can’t easily figure which handle you’re pulling. Let us know if this addresses your issue!

                • Different icons to differentiate between point type and area type in layers panel

                  It may be helpful to see which text objects are point versus area at a glance in the layers panel.

                  Just a thought.

                  • Adding background music - Even when you switch artboards

                    I had an idea about adding the abillity to add background music even when you switch to a new artboard, so I can create a screen by screen game. That means that I move the player by clicking on the arrows that will be displayed on screen. Every step of the player is a loose artboard with a different backgroud that consists of a jpg image. I would really appreciate that. Sorry for my bad spelling. I am from The Netherlands, so sorry for that.

                      It would be great if you could just drag multiple images into XD and place them one by one onto shapes (like in indesign)

                      • 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.

                                  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

                                    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
