  1. Static / Fixed objects between transitions

    When I swipe between screens I do not want the header and footer bar to slide with the transition, just the content area. Please create a function for this

    • Fullscreen Prototype

      1. Full screen should go full screen. InVision App allows a full-screen takeover when viewing a prototype. Why does the content go into a small rectangle centered in the browser with Adobe product notes in the corners? I am designing full screen, the prototype should follow that format. There is no need to see things like the date and time or "Made with Adobe XD." My client doesn't care, they are not designers. The client is my focus.

      2. Upon clicking the "Fullscreen" button in the top corner, the screen still has a black background bordering the content. It should…

        • Re-enable the feature to add your own icon to Prototypes

          In the Beta vesion of XD there used to be a feature to add an icon (client logo etc.) to the Prototypes, so if you saved it to your homescreen (iOS) the icon would act as the favicon/home screen icon. This seems to have been dissabled in the official release, can we have it back as it was very useful. Ironically my old prototypes still have the icon in them and I no longer have any way of updating/removing them

          • See all connection in prototype mode

            Currently in prototype mode, connections disappear unless you click on a board or do cmd-a.

            We need the ability to see all connections or hide them. Not by "selecting boards" using cmd-a. Just show all connections.

            People use XD not just to prototype but to pass a desired flow from designers/product to developers. Don't restrict the use case for XD

            • Multiple prototypes from one xd file

              I have an xd file with a lot of artboards depicting different screens of my app. I wanna be able to create multiple prototypes from the same xd file because I wanna show different pieces of the app to different people. It would be nice to create multiple prototypes from the same file.

              • Omit artboard from prototype/design specs

                I'd appreciate the ability to quickly select an artboard as non-publishable. This would allow exploratory work without having to drag it off an artboard before sharing.

                • Prototyping different link views

                  In a document with a large number of artboards it would be great to have some functionality for clearing up the clutter:

                  1: Select a number of artboards.
                  2: Choose View, «Show Only Links of selected artboards»
                  or
                  Choose View, «Show Only outgoing links of selected artboards»
                  or
                  Choose View, «Show Only incomming Links of selected artboards»

                  Thanks.

                  • Prototyping for Web Apps

                    I love XD and it has become my goto tool but for my work I do a lot web apps and I need the ability to do inner page animations and movements. For example rollover states, tooltips, dropdowns. Show palette expansion and collapse. Having only certain elements on the page fade in and out.

                    Advanced features like this. Anything like this coming soon??

                    Thank you and keep up the good work.

                    • Automatic Changing Artboards

                      Automaticly changing artboards would be awesome, by this I pretty much mean loading screens where you can set the duration of how long the duration is. How it would work is you would create and design your own loading screen(s) and then once done you would go to prototype and check off "Auto Change Artboard" and set the duration. It's something that would help a few people with web designing for things such as "Were just finishing up your settings..." page, which is something I have, however I must manually click t get to the next Artboard which can feel…

                      • Annotations on prototype connections

                        We need the ability to annotate the connections between boards in prototype modes. So all the connection lines should have text that you can add, position, etc by double clicking the line. This is pretty standard in other flow tools.

                        I think XD is great but you've somewhat limited the use case of it. even "prototype" mode misses the true need which is to be able to layout exactly how an application fits together and annotate why it goes from one screen to another.

                        • Retain prototype target within symbol instances

                          There is a need to keep target links intact when creatiing symbols for prototype navigation.

                          If I make a nav bar with five menu items and turn it into a symbol so it can be persitant across mutliple boards, it would be nice if it retained the target links I put on those five nav items were saved with it. As it stands, the workaround is to create the nav symbol, click into the instance and assign links, then copy and paste that instance instead of pulling out a new symbol.

                          However, even there, when you paste it onto a…

                              If you create an artboard and make responsive versions it would be a useful feature when you could connect the different screen sizes of that artboard (desktop, tablet landscape, tablet portrait, mobile) and than show buttons in the preview window to switch between this screen sizes.

                                When you have an existing shared project and you go to "Share Again", because you need to update the link, the new link is directly under the "Share Again" button, so I have accidentally clicked "New Link" when I only wanted to do an update.

                                This mistake means I have to contact the entire Executive and Sales levels associated with the source project, to let them know about the new link they now have to distribute to all of the Clients / Prospects / Partners. This also means update PowerPoints that have the link embedded with them, etc... It's a…

                                • On click features

                                  Would be great if we could add on click actions to buttons on prototype mode.
                                  Like for example changing colour on click or even expand boxes to show on click behaviours. At the moment we can only get this feeling by creating additional boards. Is this something you guys might consider for future updates?

                                  • Add an HTML/CSS element for interactivity

                                    It would be amazing if we could have the ability to insert a "placeholder" box which allows the input of HTML/CSS code to create an interactive element. For example; Drop down fields, accordions etc.

                                      thanks in advance and merry xmas

                                        Although XD is a very simple to use application, I don't think we can achieve great results since interactivity is limited to artboard links only. With a little more time we can do very beautiful prototypes with dreamweaver, animate or even Indesign, it is not very hard to change between screens.

                                        • Back button within XD Desktop Preview

                                          When I preview in the browser I can use the browser's built in "back" button to go back one step in my prototype. There's no way to mimic this behavior in the Desktop Preview in the XD app. This can be frustrating, as I often like to start Previews within the app but it can be frustrating to navigate.
