  1. Solid text underline

    Text underline was recently added to Adobe XD. The current implementation adds a space around descenders. This is not how underline looks in Chrome by default.

    In order create website designs that accurately reflect how they will look online, it would be great to have a way to show solid underlines that go straight through descenders, as they do in Chrome.

  2. Underline text

    You can easily make text bold or italic in XD, but not underlined. There should be an Underline style or toggle button for creating designs with links, etc.

    You can now underline text in the December release of Adobe XD. If you’re interested in improvements to the underline feature (like adjusting the distance between the underline and the baseline), please do feel free to file that as a separate ticket!

    -Elaine

  3. Text underline improvements: line weight, offset, variable color

    Thanks for adding underline text to the latest release of XD. I really appreciate the fact that you're still adding features like this. I've had a bit of a play with the underline text tool and have a few refinements that would make it more powerful.

    1) Allow for custom line weight. Currently the line is just the same weight, no matter the font weight

    2) Allow for custom offset to baseline

    3) Allow for variable colour.

    See my mockup attached for further clarification.

  4. Underlined text doesn't show in Design Specs

    When you copy a paragraph from specs and some of the text is underlined in the design/prototype, it would be great if the underline was copied as well?

    This could be easily left off by the developer.

  5. Dotted underlined text style

    That feature would be the killer-feature! Trust me — it will economy dozens hours of life when designers need to show links with dotted underline (which is often usable thing to hide some tips or to show user that it is clickable, but not redirecting to other url)

  6. Underline in Asian fonts is incorrect

    日本語の下線表示を適切にして欲しい

    下線機能の追加ありがとうございます。ただ日本語の場合、意図しない表示になってしまうことがあります。修正の検討お願いします。おそらくChinese, Koreanも同様のケースがあると思います。

    I want the Japanese underline display to be appropriate

    Thank you for adding underline functions. If it is just Japanese, it may become an unintended display. Please consider examining the correction. Perhaps Chinese and Korean have similar cases.

  7. A few important Requests...

    • Blend modes, but only a few like multiply and overlay. (don't want a re-run of photoshop)
    • Text underline (basic formatting)
    • Flip Horizontal / Vertical
    • Grid system (960 or similar)
    • Image repositioning within shape

    Other than this, you guys have made a fantastic piece of software. In the words of Moff from Human Traffic "Nice one Bruva"

    Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file one request per ticket. Thankfully, most of these are already in the system and are just waiting for your upvote:

    Hope that helps!

    -Elaine

  8. Support for Faux-italics

    Please add faux-italics. As of now you cannot make text italicized unless there is an italics version of the font being used. I am currently making web-app prototypes and faux-italics exists in the browser. I need a way to demonstrate this.

  9. Text formatting

    Where are the text formatting tools present on Photoshop and illustrator ?
    - underline
    - all in capital
    - small capital
    - superior/exponent
    - inferior/sign
    - barred

    Even making a copy / paste formatting of the text isn't preserved.

    Waiting for an answer from Adobe XD Team

    Best regards

  10. Share your roadmap?

    Guys we all appreciate the great work you are putting into this and we understand you can't work on everything at once, but at the same time, from the users' point of view, it can seem like a risky move to even consider switching moving to XD when there's no knowing which features will be implemented and when.

    For example if I had jumped in 6 months ago assuming underline will be supported by now, I would have been wrong.

    It would help if you could share at least some rough estimates for what you intend to work on for…

    Thanks for your feedback! We share as much as we can in our monthly blog posts in the Creative Cloud blog, in live streams, and at events like Adobe MAX, but we’re hesitant to publish a public roadmap due to the competitive landscape and the fact that we do pivot quite often to address feedback we get on UserVoice and in person. We totally understand your desire to get a hard list of items we’re working on, but we’re afraid we can’t provide such a list. We do keep UserVoice updated as much as we can, though, so our hope is that you find the information here useful!

  11. Type Editing features (ie: Like InDesign)

    Currently the type editing features in XD are bare-bones. InDesign has possibly the best type editing in any layout program. It would be great if XD can implement and borrow some of InDesign's type editing features:

    • Text Frame inset (This can be considered padding)
    • Vertical Alignment within a text frame
    • Superscript & Subscript?
    • Baseline Shift?
    Underline
    • Ability to turn paragraph text into point text, and vice versa. (This is more like Photoshop)
    • Ability to use more than one color in a text frame
    • Ability to use more than one type size in…

    Most of these ideas are already in our database, so it would really help if you could upvote those individual features.

    Color, type, and styles editing within the text box will come in a future release of XD for Windows, as we’re not quite at parity yet with the Mac client.

    Thanks,

  12. Improved elements manipulation

    It is actually a set of improvement ideas:


    • Bring in the layers, rulers & guides. It'd be extremely helpful to better organize the elements on the working environment.


    • Further text capabilities: underline? hyphenation? Currently, the paragraph manipulation is rather limited, compared to (say) Illustrator/inDesign.


    • For Adobe loyal users (like myself) adapting to a radically new set of shortcuts feels weird, and adds extra difficulty to everyday tasks. 'A' for artboards, ’R’ for rectangles and ‘E’ for ellipses makes sense, if you never-ever used illustrator/photoshop/indesign. ’Tab’ for hiding all panels would also be really handy.


    • What about blending modes for…

  13. Typographic features

    • can't edit any part of text separately . Try to give different weight,style,size or color any piece of text, this changes whole text.
    • can't kern any text
    • can't give a line height *this is vital
    • can't reach glyph

  14. Speed to market

    Speed to market:
    Please accelerate the development of this product.
    Drip feeding product features is leaving you well behind the market.
    Justifying CC is now actively discussed.

  15. Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

    Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

    Hi everyone,

    I’m glad to announce that the text uppercase, lowercase and title case transformations are now available with the XD 19 release.

    Pro Tip: You can apply the transformations to characters styles and make global updates across the document.

    Learn more about text improvements and our May release here: https://theblog.adobe.com/xd-may-2019-update-create-design-systems

    Enjoy and let us know your feedback!

    Best,
    Dan
