Hey guys,

Can anyone spot the measurement between the objects? No? That's because Adobe doesn't care about that 🙂
Seriously guys, put a background behind the measurement text, like in Figma, this is ridiculous, this is a huge UX flaw.
Thanks,

Chris

Hey, that's a bit subjective, but I understand the frustration. Especially if you have a pinkish color as the background where the numbers appear.

 

I personally don't have a problem reading these in Xd, but I agree Figma has done a better job at making these readable. Illustrator smart guides work and look the same way, so I assume they just follow that pattern throughout all the products, for consistency and all 🙂

Hi @chris.bannu, I agree with @Spas K.. If you want to create a feature request for showing the distances the way you suggested, you can do so here: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests 
Meanwhile, the closest thing you can do is holding alt/option key and hovering over the objects as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gACQXcD7SE
Happy designing!

Hi @AkinGn 
That's exactly what I did, please check the screenshot 🙂 Almost impossible to see, isn't it?
Adobe can check the user forum once in a while, there are other alternatives out there, not really my job to do their job. I'm already using Figma as many of my clients request that, if Adobe doesn't care about their products, I'm not going to either.

Tbh I saw it immediately and was initially wandering what the issue is, but as I said earlier - subjective 🙂 Otherwise - you should use what you like best and what fits your and your clients' workflows. I also use both Xd and Figma for different projects and clients, depending on the requirements. Xd for all its shortcomings still allows me to do some "hacks" that I can't achieve in Figma 🙂

Figma sucks in many ways, XD is still my go to tool, if they would steal the good stuff from one another, the resulting app would be perfect.

Oh didn't check the screenshot ok 😄 Again @Spas K. translated my feelings about it, I check also both but XD is more flexible & faster to me. Since you really think that's a feature you'd like to see in XD, I'd certainly suggest creating a feature request on XD uservoice! Happy designing!

I prefer XD as well, the worflow is 3-4 times faster than Figma. I'll post on uservoice, not sure why adobe isn;t checking out their own forums too.

They check but there's a voting based system on feature requests so they can filter the most popular feature requests to see which can be implemented using time, labour and other resources optimally I guess 😉
