  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Placing multiple images like in indesign

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Repeat Grid - insert row/column after or before a cell

    Being able to add and remove rows and columns from a repeating grid. Sometimes text are real, like an app menu for example, so this feature would be very helpful.

  20. 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?
