  1. Different pasteboard color in prototyping tab

    Would be good to have a different color clipboard background to differentiate between design and prototype mode.

  2. Run multiple prototypes simultaneously (multiple Preview windows in desktop app)

    I'm about to do a focus group - and we have a Mobile AND Web prototype we're running.

    Right now, I can only "play" one prototype at a time - Making side-by-side comparison impossible. (So if I click the play button on my Web prototype, it shows up, but when I click the play button on my Mobile prototype - it closes the web one to open the mobile one).

    I'd like to be able to have both running simultaneously - so we could compare interactions "live" as it were.

  3. Simulate lazy loading of data for mobile apps

    As development on scrollable artboards has already begun, it would be good to have a feature of Lazy Loading data on scroll. This would be very helpful for realistic presentation of data on mobile apps.

  4. Create hotkeys/shortcuts to jump to specific artboard in Prototype / Preview navigation (custom keyboard interactions)

    When in Prototype Mode, I need a way to quickly move between multiple screens.

    A set of keystrokes that I assigned as short cuts to go to a screen:
    - CTRL + 1 = Home Page
    - CTRL + 2 = Sign Up
    etc

    This same model can then be used to jump between screens in the Preview mode.

  6. Keep Preview window visible when switching away from XD

    When the user clicks out of the XD application, the previous window disappears. This becomes an issue when sharing a presentation file, each time you click outside (for example, when you have 2 screens with notes on feedback on the other screen). Is there any reason to ever hide that window? It should just stay up whether XD has focus or not.

  7. Payload data based on current assets in a given design

    Weight is an important aspect of Web design


    • Calculate the payload based on exported assets and display data, as it influences design

  8. Only record mouse clicks on prototype record

    At the moment, in prototype mode the circle follows the mouse on the recording. It would be good to have this act more like a finger does on a phone (which is not touching the screen all the time).

    I would like the option to have the touch feedback only show on click (or touch).

    This could also feed into recording from a device when device preview is available.

  9. Change an interaction's start point

    I would like to be able to change an interaction's start point after I've already set it. In my scenario going from a low-fidelity to high-fidelity design, there were certain objects I wanted to swap in for existing hot spots.

  10. Prototyping behavior library

    We might use XD for a lot of different design options. Web, iOS, Android, AppleTV etc... It would be nice, for a given platform to have specific actions of protyping for the most common ones (native interaction basics). In the form of a library of interaction behaviour.

  11. Button press and hold

    Press and hold capability for buttons with the ability to specify the length of the hold.
    Also would be good to allow multiple press and holds of different lengths on the same button that go to independent destinations. Example press and hold button for 2 seconds goes to artboard a. Press and hold same button for 4 seconds goes to artboard b.

  12. 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 !

  13. 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.

  14. Ability to define wire color

    Being able to select the color for the connectors not only makes it easier for me to understand the interactions better at a glance but when I share the wireframes with developers it gives more clarity to the progression of interactions.

  15. Support sound/audio

    What is it with Adobe's hatred of sound? They keep coming out with apps that make it easier to assemble web sites yet ALWAYS exclude sound. There are a lot of creative projects I'd like to work on with Adobe but they require sound files. From a web site where you click and drag loops to mix the audio live, to a kid's virtual zoo where you click on an animal to hear the sound it makes, to a site made for visually-impared people who have to navigate by sound, to a site about how orchestras work where you can…

  16. Highlight/show in Design view the current artboard displayed in Preview window

    PainPoint:

    As you design more and more complex prototypes it gets really easy to forget where the Artboard is for the part of the flow you are at in the Design Previewer

    Solution:
    Highlight which Artboard it currently showing in the previewer so that you can make changes faster.

  17. Responsive preview: automatically display artboard of correct size

    Would be great to see a Prototype Preview of the responsive design, how the layout changes, when the window is scaled. If there are different artboards created for the devices, it's great to see how it switches dynamically.

  18. 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.

  19. 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 :)

  20. Auto Arrange Artboard Layout in Prototype Mode

    I'd love to have some auto arrangement in prototype mode, which might be really helpful when screens get too much and organising them turns into pain. I've seen other softwares dealing with this kind of problem very neatly.
