  1. Enable easy switching between game controllers

    Hi, dear XD Development Team

    With the current feature, once you set the Xbox input, you can only operate it with the Xbox controller.
    In the case of multi-platform development, the
    You have to do the same thing again with the PS4 controller.
    I would like to request that the function be improved so that this effort can be avoided.

    Also, please support the Nintendo Switch.

    When it comes to game controller input, there is also the issue of cursor movement.
    For example, if you want to enter a character with the controller, you have to have an artboard with…

  2. Support secondary hover states for multiple menu depths

    I noticed I cannot put a Hover-Interaction on a component to trigger an overlay. When I use Hover, it only allows switching between states. And when I set a new Element and try to let it trigger an Overlay, the Option "Hover" is not even given in the Interaction-Menü.

    Is this a bug or a non-improvement?

  3. Scrollable action to another artboard anchor

    I'm hoping this idea is just an add on from the current Scroll action.

    At the moment you can create a button etc and link it to a certain area on your artboard. It then automatically scrolls to that area once clicked.

    My idea is to have this same feature, but with an option to jump and scroll to a specific area on another artboard.

    It will make the user journey so much better when using things like quick links etc

  5. Auto-animate between artboard sizes

    If I want to Auto-animate from the bottom of a scrollable artboard to a smaller one, the scaling of the artboard doesn't animate. If it could, it would be a useful feature in prototyping multi-step flows with views of varying height.

  6. Complex interactions builder - Mouse, Scroll and infinite animations

    It can be great to be able to prototype complex animations and interactions. It can help us create more concrete prototypes with mouse and scroll animations or also infinite loop animations.

    Detail of the idea in this article : https://uxplanet.org/the-killer-feature-im-waiting-for-in-our-modern-design-tools-87c3a5d3c4b3

    Summary of the idea :
    A 3 step process which allow you an infinity of possibilities by customizing each property with a math formula. We add syntax highlighting to help designers differentiate dynamic properties, static properties and constants or math functions.
    Then, AdobeXD previewer will “just” have to recalculate and update these properties at a 60 Hz frequency to make…

  7. Fixed position items should be moved into position on export

    To fix a bottom bar inside the interface to the bottom screen you have to fix it to the viewport height (Current-behavior.png). The problem is when I would like to export my mockup I expect the bottom bar on the bottom of my mockup not in the middle like inside the expected-one.png.

    Because it's painful to change all your mockups to export them and after to re-move the bottom bar to have a prototype that will work properly.

  8. Resize overlay if it's larger than the base artboard

    Different size of main and overlay artboard causes big problem with prototype. If contents of overlay isn't bigger then a main artboard why shoud I design whole new overlay for responsive design?

  9. keep audio from stopping when a new artboard pops up.

    basically, when i tap the play button on a music app i'm prototyping, if i happen to tap another button or click onto another artbord, it will stop the audio. there should be a way to pause and play the audio. that would be very helpful. thanks!

  10. Trigger interactions from center and right mouse buttons

    When designing for PCs or Macs, having the ability to trigger actions for mouse buttons would be helpful. Especially left, right, and middle buttons.

    I am using Adobe XD for game interaction design and this feature would be helpful.

  11. Trigger interactions on key/gamepad button down

    Another user has requested this for the mouse/touch down. This would also be beneficial for keys & gamepad triggers.

    I am using this software to prototype game interactions. An example of this input being used is a transition to an overlay radial menu for selections to be made. The radial menu would disappear if the key/button is released.

    Having this request fulfilled would be welcome.

  12. Multiple actions on keys & gamepad, drag, & voice triggers

    The recent update for multiple actions on tap triggers is great. Please carry this functionality over to the other triggers.

    I am using this software to prototype game interactions and having this request fulfilled would be welcome.

  14. Set speech playback language to link to XD locale

    I'm brazilian and I'm using Adobe Xd in English.
    I don't know why but the speech playback is speaking in Brazilian portuguese, but I wanted it to be in English.

    Let us choose the language of the speech playback. Let us choose between the available languages in the Help > Language menu.

    The playback is currently linked to the settings in your operating system, so to change to English, you should change your OS setting to English. I’ll leave this open and adjust it to reflect your request of setting the playback language to the setting in XD.

  15. View all interactions in the property inspector when an object is selected

    Currently (Xd 28) when we select an object that has interactions with different destinations, the property inspector is just blank. We need to select one of the wires to view the interactions.

    It would be great to see in the property inspector an overview of all interactions associated with that object when we click on the object itself. Very similar to what we see when we click on a wire that has multiple interactions.

    That should help in those moments that I start hunting my wires to understand why I can't use a certain trigger (as it is already in…

  16. Integration with Framer X

    Would be great if XD screens could be imported into Framer X similar to Sketch. It’s the only thing that makes me still debate using Sketch instead of XD!

  17. Definable hit areas for component states

    If we are going to call what XD has "component states", instead of "button states", then there needs to be a way to define a hit area of a given interaction.

    For example, right now, if I have a "component" created, and I add an element of a larger size, that comes up/out/or whatever on rollover, the rollover state becomes the new hit area size, so now the interaction won't close when I roll off the original trigger... Instead I have to roll off the entire new element that come on during the state change.

    This makes it virtually impossible…

  18. Prefab auto-animate components

    It would be nice to have common interact-able elements in a prefab form to select from. For example, top navigation link that displays a color change, or drop down menu on hover.

    After you select the prefab you should be able to change typeface, color, shape, etc of all the various element states but it would save a lot of time setting up the auto-animate between all the states.

  19. Drag in multiple directions

    Would love to drag an object both directions. Perhaps if we could add hot spots to the left and right of a container, then you can either drag it left or right.

    Example: in g-mail, drag the message right to delete, left to archive. Would like to render this behavior.

    Thought two, add these touch points or hot spots to and image so I can drag left or right from the image itself to go forwards or backwards.

  20. Enable scrolling during an auto-animation playback

    Page scrolling doesn't currently work during auto-animation playback. Scrollable pages should allow user to scroll while animation is in play.
