      Dan, is this what you're looking for interms of guide support? If so it looks like they are working on it.

      One of the reasons I don't use Adobe XD for my work cause of no guidelines. How come you people releasing so much stuff but no guidelines? it's been long!!!

    I still have a hard time getting behind XD as a product, until there is support for some organization of the component/symbol library. Something to the effect of folders that Sketch incorporates would be largely beneficial, especially when I often have hundreds of symbols in a document.

    Thanks Mike! I like the update.

    Fellow DN XD users, could we please get some more votes for finally getting a Button tool natively in one of our design software? :)

    Vote here : https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/13571298-button-tool-style-text-box-with-border-backgrou

    Edit : A bit disappointed about the autosave feature... Thought I would get some kind of versionning of the file so I could revert to a previous saved version.

    Any plans for code export?

      Well right now with design specs, you can export assets. If you haven't already, check out UserVoice, search for "code export" and vote up what you'd like for us to prioritize. There are a couple of options where we could use your input. There are also some 3rd party plugins/integrations you could check out as well in the XD plugin manager.

    Flip is great but when I flip an image it becomes a bit grainy.

      Hi Marek, that isn't ideal. I've filed an issue with the team and I'll follow up here shortly.

    I know it's kinda impossible but if you could strip adobe xd from adobe cloud, I believe it'll be much more popular in no time. Just a single exe/dmg. Simple and basic. Acquiring and installing software should be also considered in development roadmap.

    just an idea though.

    Is this a fist step towards editing XD documents on the iPad?! That would be awesome!
