  1. 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.

  2. No hotspot for scrollable screens

    There is no hotspot for giving a hint that an artboard is scrollable.

    We got it for buttons when clicking outside an clickable area. But there is not hints for scrollable artboards.

    It is easy to forget to look for that feature and it makes the end user to miss out of content.

    Posted a video of showing the problem. There could be an hint that there is more content to view.

  3. Copy wires even when in Design Mode

    After I define a master navigation on the objects that are positioned outside the artboards and have it linked to different pages.

    I went back to Design Mode and copied the objects to their x and y positioning. But when I go to Prototype Mode after that, I found the wire interaction has disappeared.

    The wire interaction only stays when I copy and paste in prototype mode, but not in design mode..

    I’m moving this over to the Feature Request section of the database, as it’s an enhancement request on the way we’ve designed the copy and paste functionality.

    Thanks,

  4. 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.

  5. Right Click, Double Click, and Scroll interaction simulation

    It would be really nice to have the ability to simulate right click, double click, hover, and scroll events in the prototype view. This would allow people who are making more complex web based products to simulate/communicate those interactions to others.

  6. link to same artboard

    It would be nice to be able to link back to the same artboard, rather than creating a duplicate simply to show the way the logic works in the prototype. Although the Symbols feature does work as a workaround, for data-entry type projects, not having a link back to the current artboard is a problem.

    For instance, I have an artboard for an event, and I need to add child, adult and senior retail tickets to the event. Currently I have to have two artboards for retail item data entry so that I can have the logic in place to…

  8. Support keyboard navigation in the prototyping pop-up

    Tab between Target, Transision, Ease Out, Duration

    More keyboard commands, less pain in mouse hand.

  9. Set Transition Style for each object on a page regardless of where they link

    Nice work so far guys.

    It would be GREAT to be to be able to choose how each element on a page will transition regardless of where they link - or if they link anywhere.

    So, for example, my sidebar dissolves, but my centre content slides off left, meanwhile my footer pushes down off the page.

  10. Ability to view team prototypes

    Ability to view team prototypes. Similar to how you can view team assets. So that I as a creative director, or other team members can quickly find and reference prototypes completed by other team members

    We announced CC Spaces in XD today at Adobe MAX! In a space, all members will be able to view all of the prototypes and design specs published from content within the space, all in one location. More details to come!

  11. Design Panel and String Variables

    The biggest hog of screen space and effort tied to interactive mock-ups is the creation of multiple art boards to accommodate simple transformations of screen objects.

    It would be great to be able to assign a variable tag to the values in the design panel and then be able to set the limits/increment values to them. This would also apply to strings.

    Using my Clock example from another feature request:
    I could assign the rotation variable to my hands set the limit to 10° then set another button to cycle that symbols rotation variable. Otherwise using the current art board…

  12. Add 'home artboard' as a new target artboard

    Currently we can set links to any specific artboard. This is very helpful. I use it for creating a button on every slide that will take me to a contents artboard, where I can link to different flows.
    The problem in this setup is that, when in prototype mode, there are a lot of links drawn between the artboards, as each artboard is linked to the contents artboard (see attchment).
    I find this can be easily alleviated if I could link the buttons to the 'home artboard', and so it could spare having to draw the links to that artboard.…

  14. Dynamic scrolling viewport height based on screen size

    Currently, for scrolling artboards there is a fixed-position dotted line that defines the height of the viewport in the interactive preview.

    For desktop web sized artboards, I'd like the position of the dotted line to automatically adjust dynamically so the prototype fills the full height of the user's screen. For example, on a laptop screen the scrollable viewport might be 960px tall and when the same prototype is viewed on a desktop monitor the viewport might be 1200px tall.

  15. Display artboard name in Preview

    When in 'Prototype mode > 'Preview', it would be really nice to show (or indicate) on the top where now is a line of text, which artboard you're at while tapping and clicking between the flow.

    When you work with multiple artboards and you suddenly you find say typo or false interaction, it's really difficult to go back to that specific artboard after you've left the Preview mode.

    I know you can do this...

    Cheers and thanks!

  16. Prototyping Links without wires for key functions like Home button

    Prototyping Links without wires for key functions like Home button.
    That said when you want to link number of pages that have a consistent home buttion back to your Home page the number of wires gets messy. We need to be able to get the links dialog without necessarily haveing to deal with wires. Or wires dialog could have an option to turn specific interaction wires on/ff

  17. 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.

  18. Export HTML / CSS animation code snippets for transition animations

    It would be great to be able to make the design live with html 5 animations (for the prototyping mode), that would be usable as assets for the developers. As we can record a live preview of our design, it would be a great feature.

    Thank you !

  19. Create animations by writing scripting code in XD (like Framer)

    Many times we need the potential to design something completely new! coding is the best way that make anything possible. allows you to explore every creative concept—not just replicate patterns. Code isn’t just for engineers. code is one of the most powerful tools a designer can have.

    Thank you to integrate a programming language code for XD (javascript, coffeescript or actionscript?) to design animations and transitions, like Framer (http://framerjs.com/), that enhance unique and innovative user experiences.

  20. "Live type" / Typewriter animation that looks like user is typing text

    ...to demonstrate how an interface interacts with text input. Basically would show how a form might be filled out or how search might work
