  1. 2-way artboard wiring/linking (reduce duplicates)

    Many app pages open up the same page (such as "Terms of Conditions"), which only contains one return/cancel button to link back to a specific single page.

    Currently the only way to deal with this issue is to make an inefficient duplicate of the ToC artboard for every artboard that links to it, and have this specific duplicate's return/cancel button redirect to its corresponding artboard.

    This could be solved with an option for "2-way" links that can be linked to a specific button on the destination page. Clicking "cancel/return" on the ToC page would then redirect you depending on the…

  2. "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

  3. Preference for default spacing/gap when creating new artboards

    Ability to change the default spacing when pasting a copied artboard, or when clicking with the Artboard tool to add new artboards.


    Original request:
    (please vote for https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13623243-resize-spacing-between-objects if you're interested in this Repeat-Grid-like dragging idea)
    Apply REPEAT GRID padding adjustment feature to change the padding around a selected group of Art Boards -- Just like REPEAT GRID pink padding adjusters, it would be great to change the spacing of a group of art boards the user has selected, and/or the ability to change the default spacing when pasting a copied art board

  4. Don't show all links on artboard when anything on it is selected (Prototype link Spaghetti is not useful)

    Usability bug:
    When I select a single element on a dense page (lots of prototype links) the interface shows me all the link lines. This adds a ton of noise to the page and makes it very difficult for me to find my selected items chevron to make new connection - this is especially difficult or impossible if I zoom out to find the artboard I need. I don't not see any value in displaying all the links in this scenario - please only show all the links when I ask to see all the links (command+a).

  5. Repeat Grid: Apply wires to all grid cells

    In Design mode, changes are applied to all nodes. When linking a node in Prototyping mode, I think it's relevant to have the ability to reflect those changes across all nodes as well.

    A boolean option when prototyping that either let's you link them individually like it is right now or use the same value for all nodes would be very interesting.

  6. Hotspot hints in Preview

    When viewing my prototype using Preview, I would like to see the same hotspot hints that my team members will see when they view my prototype on the web.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Remember prototype interactions (mouse clicks) so re-recordings are easily repeatable automatically

    I think it would be handy if you could set triggers in prototype to record pre defined motion paths for the video e.g: A (Home) to B (Next page) back to A.

  10. Default Transition Setting or Global Application of Transition Effect

    As a user who needs to present UX ideas quickly to stakeholders, I would like there to be a way for me to set a default transition setting of my choice at both the file and application level.

    I've found myself creating a complicated matrix of targets, only to realize that the last 20 I did (or was it 30?) have the application, default 'slide left' when yesterday, I had everything set up for my 0.1 second dissolve without an ease out.

    ALT:

    If not a preference setting, the ability to apply a transition globally to all targets.

    Thanks everyone.…

  11. VR - Virtual Reality Prototype Capability For Android Cardboard

    This might be a little forward thinking, however, I wanted to be the first to post something for VR. It is inevitable. __ Cheers.

  12. 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.

  13. code view

    yes, i know is a prototype app, but always is good to take a little control of the code, and the posibility to change the form of view, cooment line, place jquery elements, etc.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
