Thank you for your reply! Yes, of course I know that I can do this with the context menu / a right mouse click. Like I wrote in my feature request, this needs 3 clicks (after selecting), a dedicated button would only need 1 click.
While I got used to using the keyboard shortcuts for this in the meantime, I still believe the arrange function is so essential, that it deserves its own, visible UI buttons.
Several of these features already exist as separate requests that you may also want to upvote:
- More control over ligatures – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13205751-ligature-options
- All caps – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13388451-it-would-help-for-more-typography-options-caps
- Superscript/subscript – https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/14844018-superscript-subscript
We would also need support for activating tabular numerals (font-variant-numeric: tabular-nums; / font-feature-settings: 'tnum';).

I use a symbol for a navigation bar with navigation buttons that always link to the same pages (like it exists in a lot of websites, or similarly apps may have a tab-bar navigation).
It would be extremely useful to have the option to have instances of this symbol inherit these interaction links.
I agree with previous comments, that it should be an option if a symbol passes down its links to all the instances or if a symbol's links can be overwritten for each instance.
-> Some symbols are meant to be global navigation elements that always have the same content and link targets (like navigation bars)
-> Some symbols are meant to be reusable elements, that are reused with the same styling but with different contents and link targets (like buttons)
My idea has been merged with this idea (see comments by Christoph Mauerhofer), but these are two different things.
This idea discusses the way artboards are named when duplicated.
My idea was referring to the way the files are named when exporting artboards in case of name conflict.
To elaborate, in the described case (like XD behaves currently on Windows) you have two artboards named "my-artboard-name" and after exporting you get the two files named "my-artboard-name.png" and "Element-1.png".
When you have two artboards with exactly the same name and you export the artboards to PNG, one of the exported files gets a generic filename "Element-1".
It would be more useful to add some suffix so that you end up with two files named e.g. "my-artboard-name.png" and "my-artboard-name (1).png".
Please provide the option to input the margin/gutter for a repeat grid in an input field in the right panel. Often this is quicker and more precise than only being able to do it by dragging with the mouse.
Also, the option to fix this distance, so that it does not change when the size of the repeated grid element changes, would be great!
Allow to open the layers panel and the symbols panel at the same time (have each of them use half of the height of the left panel area).

Also have a look at how they do it in Axure RP: You can fix width and/or height of a textbox and you can make them adapt to the text content (either the box grows in width or in height).
Also, as the idea opener mentioned handling of padding/margins: It would be great to be able to add paddings to a textbox, so the textbox can be placed exactly at the borders and the text would still keep its defined distance to the borders of the textbox.

Yes, that makes sense, I might have confused the attributes.
It would be useful to be also able to add new grid cells between two existing cells and/or reorder existing cells.
Yes, it makes sense! Once we import SVG, we essentially treat it like any other object. It sounds like you want to ensure that your SVGs retain some “image” properties and be able to swap them the way you can already swap images. I’ll keep this one as open for now! Thanks for getting back to us. :)
This would be useful for working with SVG icons. It should be possible to easily replace an SVG icon later (preserving its position, scaling, color).
Yes, the contained selection in Axure RP allows to select only one or a few specific elements when there are a lot of elements close to each other or lying above each other. Actually in Axure I normally only used this selection mode, because it allows to work very precise and you can easily select groups of elements without even needing to press Shift.

Axure treats text elements and rectangles/boxes basically the same, you can style color, border etc. and decide if you want to have text inside, define paddings and if the width is fixed or adapting to content.
