  1. Include XD as a part of the CC Photography plan

    I used the beta version to completely redo my personal home page (fredspage.com). It looks a whole lot better now. It used to look like a variation of the examples from Head First HTML with a dated color scheme.

    It allowed me to first focus on design first, and later on hand coding the implementation, a much better work flow than attempting both simultaneously.

    I am a subscriber to the Adobe photographer plan and perhaps you might sell more photography plan subscriptions if you included some sort of upgrade of Xd with it.

  2. When in embed mode, enable pressing left/right keys to switch to prev/next artboard

    Enable the use of the left/right arrow keys in embedded prototypes in order to give users possibility to scroll artboards. I know it works if all artboards are not wired, but it should work also if these are wired. Like in prototypes or preview. It is not clear why is it excluded from embed mode.

    Some prototypes have multiple clickable hotspots so users have to search for them and learn their way through. Giving them possibility to use common arrow keys is a way to get sure they will be able to see all artboards and find their way back…

  3. Automatically vectorize icon fonts on export

    We using in our project Font Awesome 5 pro, and i have issue with my workflow. Basically i find icon on web https://fontawesome.com and click to copy glyph or for known icons i just type "star" or "exclamation" etc. Everything works for me until i need to export data for programmers. If i mark icon for export, XD just export svg with textfield filled with glyph from font, but its useless as icon export. I need some option to mark icons to vectorize before exporting. Thanks!

  4. Import Photoshop files in XD projects

    Ability to import PSDs into XD projects. Right now we have to Open the PSD, then copy the assets from that new project into the XD project we're working on. It would be a major improvement in workflow if we could simply use the Import feature which is currently limited to JPGs, PNGs, GIFs and SVGs.

    This would remove the 2 extra steps of 1) exporting the PSD into a PNG and 2) copying assets from opened PSD into current project.

  5. stack prototype link connection points

    stack the link connection points between artboards as currently when zoomed out they overlap each other making it very unclear and hard to select them

  6. Don't Delete Color Swatch for Icon Color When Marking Icon for Batch Export

    If you mark an icon for Batch Export (which creates an Asset panel in the design specs) it will remove the color being used for that icon from the Color Swatch panel.

    My workaround is to duplicate my icon in my artboard so that I have a copy that isn't marked for batch export and then the color information for the icon will appear in the Colors panel in the design specs.

  8. Sketched View Mode

    Introduce a 'Sketched View' mode, which a designer can toggle on/off. This would effectively remove all color from an artboard/design and render lines,borders,shapes with a slightly hand drawn effect, greyscale images, etc. You may have produced a lovely design but don't want the client to initially get held up on color choices. Once layout tweaked/approved you can then turn off 'Sketched View' and re-publish for the next review stage.

  9. Edit multiple character styles in assets

    It would be great if we could edit multiple character styles at once. For example, this is very useful for changing font for the entire project while keeping colors, sizes, weights etc.

  10. Clarify UI for corner radius in property inspector

    I've seen hundreds of newbies get their hands on Xd for the first time, and they always hit the separate corners button before setting the desired value, not understanding that the value entry box is already related to the button on the left. Please re-arrange them and use a more conventional and intuitive mapping of these buttons.

    Got it! Thanks for the clarification and the suggestion. I’ve edited the title to be more concise and applicable to your suggestion, and I’ll leave it open for others to upvote.

  11. A larger connection handle on touch screens, please...

    I had the luxury of using Adobe XD on a Microsoft Surface Studio, for a whole week. Designing and controlling a project with your fingers at such a large screen sure feels great, but... didn't anyone of the XD team ever notice that the connection handles are just too small to touch and drag ?

  12. Do not pixel snap when centering objects in relation to each other

    Clear alignment of objects relative to each other. This means that if we want to align one object to the center of another, it must be aligned exactly to the center, even if the dimensions of the object being aligned are not even. For example,10,4x12, 8px.

    Now it is implemented as in the picture in the attachment and it is very inconvenient, because you have to align the input coordinates XY manually.

  16. Multiple Paragraph Styles, Same Sizes

    As I was creating a document with the paragraph styles for a page, I noticed that I can't make more than one style that has the same point size, typeface, etc. It would be great to be able to create multiples just because it is necessary sometimes. Differentiating them is possible by naming, or maybe introduce a grouping feature as well.

    Thanks for your hard work!

  17. Automatically renumber artboards

    Is it possible to make the names of automatic tables? By working on ten tables, I will always have to name them with the prefix numbers (1 onboarding screens / 2 landing screens / 3 ....)
    when I get to board 20, I want to add a board between 4 and 5, so I have to manually rewrite and number all the other cards that follow.
    It is too boring to spend a lot of time each time manually updating the numbers.

    Thank you for thinking of a solution.

  18. Export bitmaps embedded in SVG from Design Specs

    I want to be able to export my elements as SVG from Design Specs with bitmaps linked or embedded, the same way I can on the local system.

  19. Watch preview video of plugin before installing

    I find that sometimes the description of the plugins are difficult to understand. Im not sure if the plugin is right for me. If the plugin developers could get the option to upload a preview video or screenshot/gif of the functionality so that the user could get some more info before installing – that would be helpful.

  20. Search for keywords in plugin manager

    Would love to be able to search for keywords in the plugin manager (i.e. "icons", "data") so finding related plugins will be easer.
