    Thanks for making Feature Requests!

    Currently, you can select individual items across Groups using Cmd-select in Layers panel, so no need to ungroup-then-regroup.

    We'll take a look at providing same functionality with marquee-select.

    Regards,
    Randy

    For now, you can manually drag items to re-order in list mode.

    Hope this helps,

    Not sure when this was fixed, but it seems to work as requested in version 22.3.12.2 of XD.

    Thanks for Requesting new Features! Your understanding of current functionality is correct. We are considering this new feature. To anyone else who is interested: please add your vote and any details of how you would like it to work.

    Here's how you can workaround this for now:

    1. Start by making a backup copy of your Symbols file (to be safe) using Save As in XD.
    2. Use Manage Links... (from Welcome screen, Share menu, or Mac File menu) to see your Creative Cloud files online (or go to assets.adobe.com)
    3. Click Files in left column, then Cloud Documents tab at top, and find the Symbols file.
    4. Select checkbox on Symbols file and click Delete icon in upper right corner to *temporarily* delete file.
    5. Go back to XD, open file that's Linked to Symbols file.
    6. Notice in Assets Panel that link icons on assets are now "broken" (i.e. red).
    7. There are 2 options at this point from context menu for each asset:
    7a. "Relink" to the Copy of Symbols file
    7b. "Make Local" each asset to convert current file to a new Symbols file.

    Step 7b generates different internal IDs for each asset (where as Save As re-uses original internal IDs) which is necessary if you ever want to have a file Link to both old and new Symbol files.

    Note 1: In step 7, you can multi-select each type (Symbols (now, Components), Colors, Character Styles) to make this easier.
    Note 2: After resolving all "broken" links, you can then go back to assets.adobe.com Deleted page and Restore the Symbols file you deleted.

    Whew! Hope this helps,
    Randy

    FYI, If you hover mouse over symbol in assets panel, the tooltip shows how many instances are in the document.

    @Jeff This is great feedback. Thanks.

    For now, set the Gutter Width first. Second, click the "Linked left/right margins" button if grid is not already centered. Then put focus in margins field, hold down Shift-key and use up down arrows to adjust the Column Width.

    > If it's a odd numbered grid size (which no one uses) give us an option to nudge it 1 pixel left or right.

    Click the "Different margin for each side" button to handle this case.

    Hope this helps,
    Randy

    > The grid show on top of everything no? Is not a way of put it behind things?

    Currently, layout grid is always displayed on top of everything. You can change the column color to make it more transparent. Note that if you set alpha to 0%, then only column borders are shown.

    Hope this helps,
    Randy

    Doesn't setting the left and right margins to 0 achieve this? If not, can you provide more details?

    Thanks,

    > Bonus idea: double-click the icon of a text layer could highlight the text in the artboard.

    For now, you can select the text layer and then hit Enter key to highlight the text for editing.

    There's now an extension that does this (and more) called Rename It (https://renameit.design/xd).

    Does that help?

    Thanks for sending in Feature Requests. Now that Adobe XD has plugin support, you may be able to implement that as a plugin.

    One timesaver is to create all your layers first, double-click to name the first one, then use Tab key to commit name and edit name of next layer to quickly go through the list. Can also use Shift-Tab to go to previous layer.

    Hope this helps,
    Randy

    Thanks for sending in feature requests.

    In case you didn't know, you can get measurements between elements using the Alt key:

    1. Select an element and press Alt key to get distances to edges of artboard.
    2. Select an element, move mouse over another element, press Alt key to get distances between elements.
    3. Select an artboard, move mouse over an element, press Alt key to get distances to edges of artboard.

    > I copy and drag a shape, drag an image in and now want to keep the shape but remove the image.

    Dragging an image to a shape creates an image Fill. You can remove image Fill from a shape in the Property Inspector (PI) by either turning off Fill property, or setting it to something else (e.g. color, gradient).

    Does that make sense?

    This has been implemented as right-click > Unmask Group (shift-cmd-G).

    Here's a technique for creating inner shadows in Adobe XD. Here's what I did in gif:

    1. Create a Rectangle and give it a fat (20px) border
    2. Set border color to background color (white)
    3. Add Shadow with X=0, Y=0, B=15
    4. Turn off Fill to get inner shadow
    5. Draw a Rectangle over inner shadow, select both Rectangles, and Mask With Shape to remove outer Shadow.

    https://imgur.com/a/WsNfxdZ

    Shadow does not look good in gif, but hopefully this illustrates the technique.

    Hope this helps,
    Randy

    @david You are correct. Currently in XD, you can delete anchor points on a Path, but there's no way to delete a segment to change a closed Path to an unclosed Path.

    You can do this with a slightly different workflow using the Subtract feature. Draw a Rectangle over the part of the Circle that you want to delete, select both shapes, and then Subtract. See gif:

    https://imgur.com/a/7GB0Q13

    Or you can draw Rectangle over part of Circle that you want to keep and use Intersect.

    Is the what you are looking for?

    You can accomplish that using the subtraction tool.

    https://imgur.com/a/a7cVyTd

    In this gif, I start with 2 concentric ellipses. I subtract one from the other and set fill color to black. I then draw a triangle that I subtract from first element.

    Does that make sense?

    Use the up/down keyboard keys to increment/decrement by 1. Hold down Shift key with up/down keys to increment/decrement by 10.

    Here’s how it works currently:

    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid where all grid cells show the same image, the image will change in all the grid cells.
    • If you drag multiple images onto a Repeat Grid, you will set up a repeating sequence of different images. For example, if I drag in 5 images at the same time, the first 5 grid cells will show different images and then the pattern will repeat (e.g. every 5th grid cell will show the same image).
    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid that already has a repeating sequence of images, you’ll replace all copies of the image you dropped onto. For example, if you had a sequence of 5 images repeated 3 times (15 total grid cells), and then you drop a single image onto one grid cell, you’ll see 3 copies of that…

    > Change image only in single repeat grid item

    If you make the image a Symbol, then only the image in a single Repeat Grid cell is updated.

    This bug has been fixed and should be in the next public release.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminRandy Edmunds (Sr. Computer Scientist, Adobe) commented  · 

    We plan to have Repeat Grids automatically handle this, but until then you can manually fix it.

    Cmd-click on Mac (or Ctrl-click on Windows) or double-click (may need to do this more than once) to select item with shadow. Then move it down and/or right.

    Hope this helps,
    Randy

    Thanks for sending in Feature Requests. For now, you can give a Path a Fill color and then set Opacity to 0% to achieve this.

    We’re crafting a purely UWP experience, which means following UWP design guidelines. We hate to disappoint, but it’s unlikely that we’ll be moving in the direction of including a top menu bar any time soon, as UWP removes the top menu bar entirely, pushing file operations into the hamburger menu and object commands into the property inspector and the context menu.

    For now, this effect can be achieved in XD using layers and changing opacity value.
