  1. Allow registering multiple emails to an account

    I work on several teams, each with internal emails, and want to avoid maintaining several separate zeplin accounts..

    Right now i'm logged in as email1, have received an email at email2, and I can't join that team without logging out, seemingly :(

  2. Option to Export Shape

    Add an option to export shapes from within the Zeplin app. Every time a designer exports a design, I always have to go back and ask him/her to set some of the shapes as "exportable" so that I can grab the slices from Zeplin for Xcode.

    Designer: I exported those new designs for you.
    Developer: Thanks!
    (Later on during implementation...)
    Developer: Hey, Designer, can you re-export those screens with Shape A, Shape B, and Shape H marked as an exportable asset?
    Designer: Oh, sure.
    (20 minutes later...)
    Designer: Ok, exported.
    Developer: You missed Shape H
    Designer: Ah, sorry about that. …

  4. Have the ability to display % based measurements.

    In mobile designs that need to be responsive, developers ask for how wide an element should be relative to the parent container.

    Also, for specific platforms, it would be great to have the ability to change the value for width or height (depending upon the circumstance) to a relative value or plain text.

    As an example use case, an element might have a static height (expressed as dp) while having a relative width (expressed as "Match Parent"). This would more clearly express how a a design would scale for various device widths on the Android platform.

  6. Support slices in Sketch (or at least groups)

    Our designers typically create 'slices' in Sketch to export assets. Many times these slices have different bounds than the items contained inside (usually to avoid rounding issues with odd numbered width/heights). This causes the measurements in Zeplin to be different than the developer needs to add for constraints in Interface Builder.

    Is there any way to prioritize 'slices' over individual vector elements? If not, supporting groups in Sketch would come close to achieving this for us.

  7. Allow customization for exported assets

    When using Zeplin for assets that are iOS/Android-agnostic, we need the ability to export assets at different sizes than the default ones given to us by Zeplin. It would help if we either had the ability to add/subtract from these default sizes, or if our export settings from Sketch could transfer over.

  8. Build a sitemap with exported screens

    I think one thing Zeplin has done really well is to offload the work of designers having to do design spec. I wish Zeplin also offloaded the work of creating a sitemap with Zeplin.

    What I imagine is that the designer can drag screens around and to connect them up with other screens. It's not a prototype. It is simply a way to show developers how the screens are connected and what the user flow is.

  9. Add support for multi language.

    I already wrote a feature request (22.06.2017) to the Sketch-team to add the possibility to add different translations to a label.
    If this feature got into the app it would be great if Sketch will provide a possibility to change the translations of a screen.

  10. Archive function for Screens

    Archive function for screens would be good.
    If you have around 800+ screens in zeplin it is horrible. Deleting and aranging screens took to much time.

    If you can send some screen to an archive could solve that problem

  11. Portrait Thumbnails for Mobile Projects

    It would be great to preview the screens of mobile projects with the correct layout orientation, so the thumbails don't get cropped.

  12. Show where color stops are located for gradients

    I see that gradient layers show all the colors used in the correct order, but you can't see where the color stops are (i.e. 1 stops at 10%, another stops at 70%, and a third stops at 100%).

  13. Android: Add padding adjustment for Line Height

    In the design we will have a "Line Height", to which the text will be aligned to the center.

    In the Android platform we don't have a `lineHeight` property, we have `lineSpacingExtra` which translates to the spacing between lines equal to `textSize`+`lineSpacingExtra`.

    To make up for this an Android developer must also add to 'paddingTop' and 'paddingBottom' properties, half of the lineSpacingExtra.

    It would be great if this calculation could be added/indicated through Zeplin

  14. Improve export performance for big files (60 artboards+)

    When working with big files, even the export of one artboard takes very long (almost 1 minute).
    Most of that time is "wasted" on "inspecting sketch document".
    The export itself takes up to 20 seconds for one single artboard as well, which is quite long compared to other projects with fewer artboards.

    Maybe the "inspecting sketch document" process could be selective and therefore faster? Or the overall export faster

  16. Include background color from sketch artboard

    I think you guys should include the background color of the sketch artboard in export - we just had a convo with our dev who was trying to find the background color for a screen. We were confused for a moment, but realized that it was an artboard background color.

    Please fix!

  17. Export screens with annotations

    I'd like the ability to export a screen with all of its annotations, so I can attach it to a JIRA ticket. I don't need to invite my entire team to collaborate, and the read-only web app doesn't seem to have annotations available... unless I'm missing something.

  20. Visible styles for hover, active, focus

    It would be great to make the style of elements, for example on hover, visible. So that you don't need to make differnet screens where you show all the different styles.
