            @Ludovic: Are you sure Chrome shows the file at 3000x2000 size? Usually, Chrome simply scales the SVG file up to 100% of the browser window size (unless it's embedded in HTML with a fixed size specified).

            SVG files like this appear to render at the correct size when imported into Sketch, too.

            I agree it would be cleaner if the SVG didn't have this big offset in its viewport, but I just want to understand a little more what problems it's causing. It almost sounds as if it's a _bigger_ problem for you that there's no fixed width/height set on the root SVG tag (causing Chrome to default to 100% size instead of fixed size)...

              @Elaine: I think https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12939069-set-spacing-between-objects-to-specific-number-of-pixels covers the "specific amount of space" request, while this item here covers the ability to adjust spacing via direct manipulation like what we have in Repeat Grid.

                Also note: this is closely related to https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13623243-change-spacing-between-objects-by-dragging -- which is about setting spacing _visually_ by dragging or resizing on canvas.

                Peter FlynnAdminPeter Flynn (Admin, Adobe) commented  · 

                Note: you should be able to do spacing evenly already using the Object > Distribute commands in Adobe XD. I think that's similar to the "Evenly" option in Fireworks (if not, please let us know how you'd like XD's Distribute commands to be different).

                I've edited the title of this request to focus on the piece that's totally missing in XD: setting spacing to a specific value in pixels.

                  This is something we’d like to get more feedback on.

                  a) Some apps (such as Adobe Illustrator and InDesign) behave the way XD does now: reducing fill opacity (not overall object opacity) keeps the whole shadow visible but reduces its opacity in proportion with the fill color’s opacity. At zero fill opacity, the shadow is completely gone along with the fill (unless you have a border, in which case you have a thin ring-shaped shadow left).

                  b) Other apps (such as Photoshop or Sketch) behave differently: reducing fill opacity leaves the shadow’s opacity at full strength, but clips the shadow so you don’t see it through the translucent fill. At zero fill opacity, in the middle of the shape you can see what’s behind it completely unobscured, but outside the shape’s edges you still see the drop shadow at full strength.

                  Which one do people prefer? Do you need to…

                  James: just fyi, XD does support blurring on shapes. Just open the dropdown where it says "Background Blur" and change it to "Object Blur."

                                Can you post a link to your shared prototype so we can investigate?

                                Also, what browser are you using and what screen size are you viewing the online prototype on? (If you can share a screenshot of what you’re seeing that’d be extra helpful).

                                One thing to note: if you make a standard-sized artboard (like 1440×960) and then make it taller, it will be changed into a scrolling artboard. You’ll see a dotted line whenever the artboard or something on it is selected — that indicates the size of the viewport you’ll see when viewing the prototype online (or in the Preview window of Adobe XD).

                                If you don’t want your artboard to scroll — and you just want a very tall screen that will shrink down to fit when viewed on a normal-size computer screen — for now you’ll need to make a custom-sized artboard (click-drag with the Artboard…

                                (And just to clarify further, when XD enables scrolling on an artboard, that affects what size it is displayed at in the Preview window & in the browser sharing view. That's why scrolling is relevant here. Scrolling artboards are resized just to fit their _width_ onscreen, with height overflowing; non-scrolling artboards are resized to fit both the width _and_ height onscreen, which is what you're looking for).

                                Peter FlynnAdminPeter Flynn (Admin, Adobe) commented  · 

                                Hi Josh, sorry for the delay. Let me try to clarify this further...

                                I get that you don't _want_ to create something that scrolls. However, XD will _automatically_ make your content scroll under certain conditions, even if you didn't ask it to. I believe that's what you are encountering.

                                Specifically, if you started out with an artboard matching one of the predefined template sizes, resizing it taller later will result in scrolling whether you intended it or not. Since your 1440x2560 artboard is basically a taller version of the 1440x960 template, this is probably what happened.

                                You can check by selecting the artboard and then looking for a horizontal blue dashed line. If you see this, XD thinks you want the artboard to scroll.

                                Excerpting from my original note above, here's how you can work around this issue:

                                > If you don’t want your artboard to scroll — and you just want a very tall screen that will shrink down to fit when viewed on a normal-size computer screen — for now you’ll need to make a custom-sized artboard (click-drag with the Artboard tool) at the taller height that you want, and then move your content onto that artboard (e.g. via copy-paste). In a future update we’ll give you an easier way to toggle scrolling on/off for each artboard.

                                The part about creating an artboard by _dragging_ with the Artboard tool is important. If you create the artboard any other way -- including duplicating or copy-pasting one of your existing artboards -- then you will still be stuck with the blue line and the scrolling. Very soon, the next update to Adobe XD will make it easier to turn off the auto-scrolling.

                                      Note that different technologies your developer might be using all measure text differently. Many UI platforms include a certain amount of built-in buffer around text to accommodate things like accents, descenders, and italics -- and the size of that buffer/padding area may vary. And some platforms position text from the upper-left while others position text from the baseline.

                                      So the distances & offsets a developer will need to use often won't exactly match the measurements XD gives you. In this case, it might be better to manually figure out optical distances (e.g. distance from bottom of button to baseline of text; distance from top of button to top of "typical" lowercase letters like "o" or "e"). Then your developer can tweak the numbers on their platform until the optical offsets at runtime match what's in your design.

                                      If you want, we could turn this into a feature request to have the measurement tool in XD give you these more optically precise measurements for text instead of the 'outer box' border measurements it gives you today. Would that work well for your workflow?

                                        Thanks for the clarification, Sascha. I've tweaked the description above to help make that more clear.

                                        As a workaround, note that you can hold down Shift to snap the angle of the control points' tangent line to 15-degree increments. This might help a bit, at least, with keeping your control points consistently placed.

                                          It looks like you are interested in one of these things:

                                          1. Hold down Alt to measure distance between objects: this is already possible in Adobe XD today.
                                          2. Upload your design to a web service where developers can interactively extract measurements, styles, and other information (similar to the app Zeplin or the Creative Cloud "Extract" service).
                                          3. Export a static (not interactive) design spec that developers can read, listing measurements and other styles. PDF is _one_ format this could be exported in.

                                          Based on the earlier request "Hope can be in web page preview prototype a new measurement model," I believe you are most interested in #2. There is already an existing suggestion matching this idea, so in a moment I will merge your suggestion into that one, to keep our feature list tidy.

                                          If you are more interested in #3, please add your vote to this suggestion instead: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/15061407-export-measurements-for-developers

                                          Thanks for your feedback!
