    This was highly debated and designers are split on whether they want this or not. We may provide a preference in the future.

    David Knell commented  · 

    The one thing that bothers me most about using XD--and it bothers me every time it happens--and it happens dozens of times per XD session--is when you go into Text mode by typing T, and then you click on the artboard and type in your text, and then you go to select another object but--and I've never gotten used to this because literally no other design tool does this by default--instead of selecting the object, it creates a new empty text box. All other design tools that I've used (Sketh, Figma, InVision Studio, Principle) switch back to Select mode when you click out of a text box in edit mode. Figma allows you to turn this off--or rather turn "Keep tool selected after use" on--but it's not selected by default.

    Honestly, this is one of the main reasons it hurts to use XD and why I am leaning towards other design tools right now and as I build up my design team. Call me picky, but it's just so bothersome. I wish it weren't. Maybe this is how Photoshop works and so you want to keep it consistent for Adobe projects. Fine. But can you pleeeeeeease make this a preference we can turn off?

    I would REEEEEEALLY like the ability to have all comments in a prototype private. Sometimes, you want everyone to discuss a prototype together, to build on each other's observations. But most of the time, you want people to share their feedback independent of each other, to be blind to other people's opinions so their feedback is pure and unbiased. Therefore, it would be immensely valuable to mark a prototype such that commenters can't see each other's comments, but only the designer can see them all.

    I would also like a keyboard shortcut to be able to rename items, not just from inside the layers panel but also when you click on a layer, symbol, group, or artboard on the canvas. In that case, clicking Enter wouldn't work, so it'd need to be another keyboard shortcut. Sketch uses Cmd-R, for instance.

    I use Ctrl-C in Sketch to open the color picker all. day. long.

    I'd rather have a right-click menu option than to have the File > Import menu option do different things depending on whether something is selected or not. Right-clicking is more convenient anyway.

    It would make sense (to me, anyway) to have this be a control in the inspector (probably in prototype mode, right?). You click on an element and, just as you can add multiple shadows, you can add a cursor state: which cursor (from a dropdown) and when it appears (from a dropdown: hover, click, downpress, etc.). I suppose the artboard would need to have this option in its inspector as well.

    Come to think of it, when you add a link to an element, the default should be that the cursor changes to the hand cursor when hovering over that element (for desktop interfaces, anyway). It's really helpful to see the hand cursor in a prototype so the user can know that they can click something, as they would be able to do in the production version of the app.

    Rather than Adobe spending time on this, I'd rather have Adobe spend time on the features that will make InVision no longer needed: hover interactions, animated transitions, hotspot templates (or rather, links perpetuating across all instances of a symbol, which makes more sense in XD and is even better than hotspot templates anyway).

    If a text element has padding, background color, and border radius attributes, then there's your button! Excellent! You guys are really good at making interactions intuitive. Please continue that level of quality for this feature. It could easily be an awkward interaction because there are two places you can edit a text object: in the main window by dragging-and-dropping and in the inspector pane. Pressing Ctrl, Cmd, or Option and then dragging the borders of a text element may be an intuitive way to create/change the object's padding. Anyway, I trust you guys. :)
