  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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 !

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 :)

  13. 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.

  14. Show all interaction wires (links) without having to Select All

    In order to work and review the overall faster, I need an option to click on on the view menu that allows me to see all the links without having to click on all the artboards.

  15. See a preview of the target artboard when drawing wires

    When prototyping it is sometimes difficult to use the pick-whip to select the target screen if it is far away. The alternative is to choose the screen from the drop down menu, which I think works fine other than the fact that it requires you to be able to identify the screen is from the artboard name only. It would be helpful to see a preview of the artboard along with the name.

    Additionally, it would be great if there was some visual cue as to what elements already have hotspots assigned to them. Right now it seems like you…

  16. Sort/Group Artboards in interaction/wire popup's Target Artboard list

    It would be great to be able to sort and maybe group artboards. I think it would make it easier to select the target artboard in prototyping mode if you were able to sort them, alphabetically or even group multiple artboards so that you wouldn't need to scroll through a long list of artboards just to find the one you would like to target. It would be really usefully especially when your XD project contains 60 or even 100 artboards. Imagine scrolling through a list of 100 artboards that isn't sorted?

  17. Prototyping: magnifying glass/loupe to help linking small elements

    If I want to create a link from a small element like a menu item to another page, it is hard to accurately select the text and be zoomed out far enough to see the page I want to link to.

    I know you can use the drop down to select the page, but if you want to do it visually it would be good if the area around the cursor would zoom like a loupe to enable easier selection.

  18. Simplified view of artboard interaction links (overview of flow) in XD desktop app

    Reduce number of lines between linked artboards: (when an entire artboard is selected or you select all)

    when two artboards link to each other, instead of having two, three or four lines, have one line (with two or more arrows or another color) to show the two or more links.

    This makes it easier to get an overview of the entire applications dartboard links (app/site structure)

    Its the smallest things that makes a great and intuitive workflow

  20. 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.
