  3. Replay button in preview animation mode.

    It's necessary to replay and view an animation again & again to get the detailed mistakes. But to replay or restart the animation, I have to close the current preview and open the preview again. What about adding a button through which we can easily do this by one click?

  4. Scroll to nested object in artboard

    Hey everybody,

    i use the Layers structure heavily with the super cool stacking feature to have clean and consistent spacing in between all my elements. But if i create all these folders i can't select folders that are in folders with the "Scroll To" Action.

    Please let us access the whole Folder structure in prototype mode to use both features in combination.

  5. Ability to preserve scroll position between transitions within a scroll group

    This would solve a problem I'm currently having with Adobe XD. I'm unable to create a transition that would preserve the scroll position within a scroll group.

  6. Select which component state to use based on relationship to artboard (flyout direction)

    Hello,
    When you are creating an overlay it could be for different reasons. One of them is to create a menu for a combobox perhaps. In this cas it could be interessant to be able to say : "this overlay is a child of this element on my design".

    Why ?
    Because then it's possible to give a behavior to this menu : to appear above, bellow, one the right or on the left of this parent element. Or may be to have an automatic choice made by the system depending on you scroll and the space avalaible to show…

    Thanks for your feedback. I think this something that component states will help you with and not overlays per se, as overlays are defined in relationship to the artboard viewport, not an element on it. However, you do have a good point about choosing the directionality based on its location on the artboard. I’ll edit the title to reflect that request.

  7. Divide notification per project in XD?

    Hello community

    I will be as clear as possible. My team and I have been working for a while for a large project, FB / Lin equivalent. Another team in my office is working on another smaller project.

    The problem is that we get notifications on the same notification panel for every project. So if I open notify, panel and look for the comments not tied to my project, the PL won't see them and vice versa.

    So the question is, is there a possibility that each project has its own notification list?

    Also it is annoying that if I…

  8. Scroll trigger to another artboard

    add the option to go to another artboard when scrolling, (as it happens with drag on mobile prototyping) on the presentation

  11. Allow vertical resizing of the component menu on the right panel

    I use a lot of states on some components. Please allow me to resize the "Component (Instance)" module on the right side of the screen by dragging the horizontal divider down. I have so much unused space on the right, but my component states are limited to a fixed area that requires me to constantly scroll to find the state I need and really slows me down.

    The area is a little bigger in Design Mode, but I would like to be able to resize it there, too.

  12. A shortcut to select at same time all the links of only one art-board

    It would be very useful to have this shortcut so that I can select ALL the links of ONLY ONE artboard so that I can easily and rapidly change the presets of the links at same time.

    There is the short-cut control + A but my idea is to have a shortcut to select all the links related to one art-board when selecting one art-board (or even any other at same time). As user, I think that it would be logical to get this short-cut and so valuable. It takes too long time to select links of an art-board while…

  13. Cannot Ctrl Z if chose "Keyboard" option at any point

    Cannot Ctrl Z if chose "Keyboard" option at any point, because the prototype function assumes you want "ctrl z" to be your shortcut for that item.

  14. Integration of alt text for visual elements in prototypes

    Blind and severely visually impaired people are largely dependent on the use of screen readers to receive digital content.

    For user testing, the integration of so-called alternative texts plays an important role.
    Adobe XD offers voice playback as an interaction element, but the input of an alternative text, which is analyzed by the screen reader, is not possible from the current point of view.
    I would like to draw attention to this problem, because
    A) due to the legal situation in Europe, private companies are obliged to design their applications accessible until 2025. Here, feedback from the target group, including…

  16. Publish prototype in wireframe mode

    Even if you have a design system running, sometimes you need to work on new features in a prototype. So you need to have mixed some components finished with others unfinished. I would love to work directly on the prototype and, while the "design" of new components are not finished, publish all the prototype on "wireframe or grey mode" to avoid distractions of stakeholders. Probably is easy to render only borders and texts of every objects, keeping all the functionalities.

  18. Change Hover state default parameters

    When I create a new Hover State, by default adobe XD create a new hover interaction with default parameters :
    - Auto Animate
    - Ease-Out
    - 0,3 seconds

    I never use this config. I always need this config for hover:
    - Type : Transition
    - Animation : None

    It's very annoying because I have to reset all my Hover interaction every time. Is there a way of modifying these settings by default ? Every time I create an Hover state, i would like to have a transition without any animation by default.

  19. Smarter text animation to animate text by letter, word, line or paragraph.

    I'd like to see an option in Prototype mode where i can choose to animate text a little easier. There will be new options where you can choose which text animation you want and also which interval time that should be used

    The text animations i'd like to see in that dropdown menu are:

    • As whole (default)
      This is how it is now.

    • Per paragraph
      Animate the text by paragraph.

    • Per line
      Animate the text by line.

    • Per word
      Animate the text by word.

    • Per letter
      Animate the text by letter.

    For each option could be considered to have an…

  20. Persist underlying art-board after subsequent transitions following 'overlay'

    TL;DR: Art boards with transparent fills should continue to overlay the previous art board's underlaying board.

    I can think of many use cases that have required a significantly higher number of art boards, assets and hours to accomplish than should be required. The feature I am requesting would address all of these issues in a simple and intuitive way.

    Let's say I have art boards A, B, and C.

    'A' displays my application, with 100s of assets, text, components, etc.
    'B' displays a modal over the application in state 1, the default state.
    'C' displays state 2 of the modal,…
