  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

    • 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

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • Confirmation Box when Creating New Link

            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…

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Option to make Preview window not always on top

                  The 'design preview' window is set to always be the topmost / frontmost window when running XD. This is a problem because it deviates from standard window behavior on a mac.

                  If a program has multiple windows that I can minimize or dismiss, then I should be able to bring any window to the forefront by simply selecting it. All other windows should then automatically stay open but appear behind the topmost window.

                  I just want XD to follow standard practice on the mac. I'm very comfortable switching between windows using cmd+~ or using the 'window' menu in the toolbar.

                  • 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?

                    • Desktop Preview: switch between screen sizes (desktop, mobile, ...)

                      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.

                      • Make "None" the default transition, not "Dissolve"

                        I would really like the default transition for wires to be "None," not "Dissolve." I have almost never seen a real website or app or desktop software do page transitions with a dissolve transition, so I don't understand why it's the default transition. I have to change the transition from "Dissolve" to "None" every time I create a new project. I could be the only user who wants this, but I wanted to make this request.

                        • Accurate Desktop Preview

                          When using the Desktop Preview for a 1920 x 1080 web prototype, it's actually showing it at ~93% the full size (see attached images with the black bars on the side).

                          Can we have a full screen mode that shows it at the accurate size?

                          • Back to Top button

                            I would like to be able to link an object in an artboard to another place in the same artboard.
                            I'm messing around with XD creating a mock-up app for The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.
                            I want to make a "Back to Top" button at the bottom of every word definition artboard so people can get back to the home page a bit more smoothly.

                              I would like to see the default desktop prototype view as full browser width without the title/sign-in information at top similar to Sketch. This information could be hidden somewhere or yoou provide the option when creating initial link.

                                I have problem with Adobe XD CC when sharing prototype. When I click to Share Protoype, I just got error 1001 - See picture in attachment.

                                2. Run the Adobe Creative Cloud app from your Applications folder (or click on the Creative 3. 3. Cloud icon in your menubar if it’s already running).
                                4. Click the gear icon in the upper right and choose “Preferences…”
                                5. Click the “Sign Out” button.
                                6. After signing out, sign back in again.
                                7. Restart Adobe XD and try sharing…

                                    Cycle Layers

                                    Use cycles layers just like Adobe Character Animator to create animations in the design

                                      Hi, would be great to have dynamic type incorporated into prototype mode. Is there any plan to implement this in future release?

                                      • Get CC notification on comments

                                        It would be great to have a notification in the CC when a comment is made on the prototype. Bonus points for a blip on the same comment when opening prototype!

                                        • Preview via QR code

                                          To solve the problem to connect by a USB cable on W10, it would be great to enable to preview the prototype by scanning a QR code like it was possible with Pixate Studio. This was a real big asset of Pixate, very helpful, and I think it’d make XD even better.
