  1. Fixed elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

    Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

    • Animate individual elements separately (custom animation transitions / microinteractions)

      Support for simple animation.
      Example: Show/hide a slide or push menu

      This would enhance a demo and engage prospects that are familar with common application patterns.

      • Scrollable Area (not scrolling whole artboard)

        Define a scrollable area within an artboard

        This provides real-world app use cases, such as a table, slideshow, or iOS dropdown lists.

          • Artboard Overlays (sidebar / menu / popup) in interactive prototypes

            Hi there, currently the only interaction is a page switch with some easing functions, but when you click a button, it would be nice that you van select a artboard that you can use as a "overlay" over another artboard. So that way you can create lightboxes in your protytype.

            • Global/Master artboard templates (pin objects across all artboards)

              1. Ability to have a single object (or group) break out of its artboard and cross multiple artboards within a single prototype. The simplest use case is the creation of a global navigation bar that spans across multiple screens. This object's interactive elements would also work across multiple screens as well, and any edits to this object would update across the rest of the screens.

              2. Easy interaction management and editing. Also provides consistency with consistent elements within an experience.

              • Gestures - swipe, pinch/zoom, force touch

                In order to full use this as a UX professional, I would have to have the ability to include gestures, most critically for handing a stakeholder a wireframe or design. Gestural swipes, two-finger zoom, force-touch, etc. Otherwise I don't think too many experience UX professionals will be able to properly communicate core functionality and the behavioral imperatives incumbent to the process.

                • Interactive Prototyping for User Testing

                  I use JustInMind to prototype Web and Mobile apps that I then user-test. The JIM application is less than optimal, but to attract a broader Human Factors / Usability / Design audience you're going to need a lot more than "scrolling."

                  Interactive elements such as text fields, check boxes, drop-downs, etc. that can all be connected, responding to user inputs as needed, in a manner that replicates a real application in its native environment is what is needed.

                  I look forward to that day, as your design tools and simple, visual linking paradigm are certainly winners.

                  • Carousel / Side-scroll

                    Ability to create and customise content carousels or slideshow type scrollable areas.

                    Currently there is a "scroll" feature in build, but it seems to be about page scroll and up/down scrollable areas.

                    • Scroll to Anchor Link Target

                      The anchor link that target the specific part of the page. This is the significant user experience on web usability where user can "back to top" or can navigate (i.e. from menu bar) to the specific sessions without the need to scroll through entire pages.

                      • More default animations and easings

                        It would be great with a few more features/interactive animations when you link the pages. More easing options. I guess what I'm saying I would like to have more animations and effects based on what we have on websites and apps to this date.

                        transition presets

                        • Text input field with actions based on value

                          For prototyping and user testing, a text input field control would be very helpful. Bonus if you could apply actions to enter / submit based on different strings.

                          • More slide transitions

                            Few more nice slide transitions wouldn't kill anyone, would it :)

                            • Enable timed transitions (not triggered by user interactions)

                              Enable timed transition, something triggered by timing and not by user interactions (e.g. a notification from a server or a splash screen going away in a couple of seconds).

                              • Add Interactive Native Widgets/Controls to Prototypes

                                Support for native device functions (e.g. Cordova).

                                Example dropdown selection, media players, maps, etc.

                                This would increase the demo's effectiveness and allow for a more real-world prototype.

                                • Share prototype with customers so that they can view on their mobile devices

                                  First of all: I LOVE XD! Thanks for this great software!

                                  My issue is, that sharing the prototype on the web is nice, but our customers request to see the prototype on their mobile devices - but not with the online link, because they can't see the complete screen without scrolling and that looks not like an app more than a webpage.

                                  Now the only possibility is to download the xd app, login or register and connect the mobile device with the computer, where the file is open. How can our customer see and test the prototype in the same…

                                  • Export interactive PDF with clickable "PageTo" links

                                    Please add the option to export all artboards of the prototype as a PDF document of many pages, preserving prototype interactivity saving links as PDF internal "pageTo" links (or invisible linkTo rectangles).
                                    So that in this way the prototype can be navigated in the PDF file like on a web page (transitions excluded of course).
                                    This would allow a very efficient "deliverable" design document for the client.

                                    • Create separate, custom hotspot areas (e.g. larger than the visible shapes)

                                      Now you can connect layers but what if you want to connect a hit area larger than a layer? Now you can work around this by drawing a rectangle behind the area and linking that up, but it would be great to be able to draw actual hotspots.

                                      • Logic in prototyping - conditional behavior, branching, if/then

                                        To be able to prototype for usability testing and demonstrations there needs to be a bit more intelligence around how experiences are joined up togehter.

                                        If clause example:
                                        If user makes choice a, do x. If user makes choice b, do z. And so on.

                                        Variables:
                                        When user makes a choice/clicks/fills in a field etc. assign a variable. Then allow designer to use variables in an if-clause to make decision which roots to go down.

                                        Thank you :)

                                        • Maintain page scroll position when moving between screens

                                          When previewing prototype need to be able to maintain page scroll position between screens to support interaction and animation behaviours (in Preview).
