This is the workflow I wanted to have: creating a bunch of icons in Illustrator and importing them into XD (or open the .ai file in XD). Strokes and radiuses are applied as styles in .ai to do general changes in style efficiently. If I open these assets in XD and try to scale them strokes won’t scale when I have to use icons in different sizes. Am I doing sth wrong or is it the way things should work in XD (responsive resize is "off")?

Why does this need even a feature request. This is truly a dealbreaker for many, but you discover so early in learning the product, that you just leave instead of supporting a many year old feature request. This is so sad... I am really into buying a mac just for using Sketch.

We arent equesting a feature, we are requesitng the basic, fundamental ability to scale a stroke as we scale an object. this isnt a feature, this is the most basic of design functionality.

haha, yessir! this is the exact reason I started using figma.

Adobe has so many features that are awesome, and I still use on a regular basis, but when I learned figma actually did the things I was requesting, basic things, it was a dealbreaker. I started using Figma a few weeks ago, and so far created products I never could in Xd.

 

Sadly, I won't be using Xd for the long run for this exact reason: basic things are feature requests that get left on seen for years!

Guys. Look this should NEVER be a request!!!!! Do you actually use the software in any proffesional way? or are you just softwear number crunchers and developers. How is not having the ability to scale a group of objects some with strokes proportionaly benifical to anyone? i need to scale things all the time in every software i use in the adobe packages, all programmes Indesign, photoshop, illustrator give me the ability to scale things up and down without the strokes being left unscaled! simple everyday requirement, but for some unknown reason you though it would be a great idea to leave this feature off. Any expanation into this bezare logic would be greatful. This is such a let down. do you even look at ther adobe packages and how they function

I think it's super lame that I have to go in to XD and establish the dims I need for a graphic, open the Illustrator file,  which is set to scale stroke, scale to dims needed, then copy and paste into XD. That's my workaround FWIW.

 

But I, like others here find it super annoying to come across this thread over a year after the original post, with no update from Adobe in this thread, or even a cross link to solution in another thread. This should not be a feature. This should be part of a build.

And, in my work, I don't just slam and cram by making the customer submit a request. I would do a discovery to determine the need, and make the request on their behalf. Adobe, please, you can do better!
