  2. Choose platform during download step, not upload step

    Hi,

    Currently we have features that we develop for multiple platforms at once. This means for example we will have feature A, and during a sprint Android, iOS and WeChat developers will build the feature during the sprint.

    Right now the current workflow that we have to follow is to create separate files in order to create separate links because the assets exporting forces us to choose during uploading the platform that we need assets for.

    It would be much easier if we created only one link for that story / feature, and then the dev from their respective platform…

  4. Drag & drop an image onto the layers panel

    If I want to replace an image underneath another object I cannot use drag and drop because it will replace the topmost object instead. Since there is no way to replace an image other than drag and drop (which itself is a serious shortcoming), you should be able to drop an image onto a layer in the layers panel.

  7. Select separate sections of area text

    This would be similar to holding the shift key to select multiple objects.
    In this case one would be able to select different lines of text (not contiguous)
    by holding a modifier key.

    example: A user is trying to select every title in a long flow of copy. With this function they would be able to select each title in the text box and change their color, size, font, etc. all at once.

  8. Make layer icons always visible

    I'd personally prefer the icons on the layers (mark as asset/batch ; lock/unlock ; view/hide) to be visible at all times and have a hover/ active state rather than being invisible until you click it.

    I supposed the goal is to get used to it and remember which is where but I often find myself having to click twice or three times to find the right icon for the right action which becomes annoying.

    See attachment for reference to icons.

  9. Rasterizing placed hi-res stock imagery to reduce overall XD file size

    Hi team, you're doing great work so far! I would suggest / request a few options for image handling in Adobe XD.

    Another option would be to have an option to rasterize all imagery after being placed in so you can rasterize all imagery at once at a specific resolution (@1x, @2x, @4x) so that all images would be rastered at the largest size you would need to export for final size, and reduce the large sizes of placed stock photography to save the overall xd file size.

    (Moved to another story: One is the ability to use linked imagery,…

  10. Enable prototype embedded in iframe to still support commenting

    Please allow the embed option which products an iFrame to have the ability to allow comments in the same way that the direct link has.

    This should also ideally allow a simple way to get to the comments section from the prototype, such as when the cursor reaches the far right edge of the page, the comments will slide in from the right, for example.

  11. Number Toggle

    Converting text to numbers with the click of a button can definitely reduce a lot of time as there will not be any necessity to manually add the commas between the digits.

    Here is my Visualization of how the concept would be.

  12. Recursive exporting of all assets inside groups

    Is it possible to export all the assets in the art board embedded inside groups recursively.
    Example:

    Group1
    - asset 1
    - Group 1.1
    -asset 1.1.1
    -asset 1.1.2
    ......

    Expectation after export:
    asset1, asset1.1.1, asset1.1.2 (seperate files)

    currently once way to do this is to ungroup and export it.

  13. "Align to Pixel Grid" not working for some vector elements

    Align to pixel grid does not work on some vector elements.

    The option works for some elements, but some others refuse to snap to grid/resize when using this option.

    When i resize these resistant vectors to have no decimal point and use "align to pixel grid" it will change the H/W and X/Y to have decimal points once again.

  14. [Windows] Expand interaction pop-up target window to display the entire artboard name

    When there's a lot of artboards it's hard to zoom out and drag target destinations. I'd like to be able to select a target artboard from the dropdown menu. But the dropdown has a max-width so it can't show the complete artboard name.

    Request: Do _not_ truncate artboard names in target dropdown.

  15. Adjust error message when exporting to a file open in another app

    I needed to overwrite a file when exporting it. However, I spent approximately 20 minutes trying to figure out why I kept getting the error "There was a problem exporting your asset. We'd love to understand what went wrong so that we can fix this for you. Please tell us about the problem here."

    I finally realized that this was because I was overwriting an opened file (I was viewing it in Adobe reader). As a software engineer to a team of software engineers, I highly recommend making the errors much more specific to the issue.

    if File.isOpen()
    sendError("Please close…

  16. Default placement of first artboard should be in a corner

    Art boards start off being placed at the center of the canvas but as projects grow and things are placed outside of art boards it becomes difficult and time consuming to move the group to the upper most bounds. By default the art board should be placed in the upper-most right corner of the canvas to maximize space and minimize the pain that comes in moving when you realize you are out of canvas space.

  18. Prototype wires to go underneath artboards (optional)

    Have the ability for prototype wires to go underneath the artboards.

    This feature would be would be already made wires, any wire that you are live-editing would be above artboards.

  19. User-rights management in online prototype

    Users should have different statuses like admin, able to leave comments, just watch, disallow access to specific areas of the prototype.

    - sometimes users have to be able to look over an prototype but not to comment

    - some users might watch specific parts of a prototype but shell not see others

  20. Line editing function like InVision

    The line editing function suggests to increase the midpoint capture, otherwise it is too inconvenient, which may become an important reason for me to go to InVision.
