  1. Prototype interactions should allow both state transition and artboard transition

    Component states are great but ideally it would be better to allow an interaction to do both a state transition and an artboard transition.
    So an example would be a side nav with each element triggering a transition to a different page/artboard.
    I would like clicking on the link to change the component state (decorate it for example) as well as transitioning to the target artboard

    thanks

  2. Component states to inherit interactions from master default state

    Component states should behave like component copy instances. This includes interactions to be copied to all child states. This is essential, for example, for a menu component in which each state is the active status of each menu item. But when I create new state it loses all interactions. Maintaining 5 states with 5 menu items becomes tedious.

  3. Device chrome around exported video

    After I finish recording an interaction, I would like to have an option to export the video with the device around the video kinda like a container.

  4. More default component states (on-click, on-tap, on-mousedown, visited, on-focus)

    FINALLY there's a hover state on components! GREAT!

    However I quickly ran into a limitation. When the user touches a button or clicks it with the mouse/trackpad, the button needs an "on tap" or "on click" state that very briefly changes a button's appearance to give the visual feedback "your click or touch was detected".

    So now that you have HOVER please add ON CLICK/TAP ort whatever you want to cal it.

    Basically the component state changes for a definable amount of time before the destination or next state is triggered.

    While you're at it, how's about looking at some…

  5. Hover triggers to ALL elements to trigger artboard navigations; not just state changes

    Now that the "Tap/Hover Effect" request ()https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12941394-tap-hover-effect?tracking_code=c41a5301558789f85205f7c47ec8b9ca) is officially closed, we need a feature to do what (I believe) the 8952 people who voted for it have been asking for since March of 2016:

    A way to assign Hover events as triggers for the existing interactions platform.

    Component states is a wonderful addition to XD, but it barely scratches the surface of what designers need for prototyping hover events.

    We need to be able to add tooltips, menu pop-up overlays and many other effects that still can only be achieved by transitioning to another artboard. As it stands,…

  7. Keypress for component state change

    We like the new features for components, but it is still limited to taps and hovers. we would like to have keypresses for state changes inside components

  8. Next/Previous State interaction

    Add an option to toggle between states instead of choosing a specific state to go to.
    In some cases like a gallery, carousel, counters etc, the interaction is linear and a a single next/previous interaction can apply to all states.
    It will save a lot of time and errors to define a single interaction and apply to all states.

  9. Allow components event to change states of other components

    New states feature is excellent but restricted for self components interaction. In many cases, especially in web and desktop apps, there are cases where a component event should affect another element on screen.
    It would be a super powerful option to allow a component event to change states of another component.
    Currently if i use component A inside component B, i can't use A to change state of B, even though A is part of B.

  10. Remove top and bottom black space when previewing small artboards

    WHY mobile landscape in Preview have space at top and bottom with black color, its ugly, this gape/space can only be gone if height is 550 or more, height under 550 have this space which make whole prototype look very ugly to show some one. in the screenshot attached The W is 736 and the H is 414 Landscape

  11. Disable Get Embed Code option (text link) in XD when Prototype Contains Voice Playback

    Description:
    If embeded prototypes result in error when an artboard contains voice playback, then disable "get embed code" from XD

    Why is this valuable to you?
    The current experience is inconsistent with user expectations and capabilities.

    When designer adds voice-playback to an prototype for the first time, alert designer that prototype can not be embedded and disable Get Embed Code text option in XD Share>Share for Review dialog window.

  12. Zoom in/out while dragging wire

    Sometimes, while linking artboards, I have the need to zoom out to find the destination artboard.

    I click the origin anchor (it turns blue), zoom out and keep the destination artboard visible, then I click the blue anchor and link to the artboard I want.

    It'd be nice if I'd be able to zoom in/out using CTRL + Mouse Scroll while dragging the linking line.

  13. Can't export prototype to Alexa Preview (skill) if [space] used for speech playback on first art board

    In order to export an Adobe XD prototype to Alexa Preview, the first artboard must contain actual content; an empty space will result in export error. This is a new issue as previous exports have accepted a single space as content.

    I wasted several hours trying to address this. My exhaustion to figure it out on my own led me to leave a 1-star rating on Amazon for the XD skill, a phone call to the Adobe support team, rescheduling a client meeting and lost wages.

    My feature request:
    Make export error handling better and more descriptive.

    Explicit indication that…

  14. Distinguish fixed position vs. preserve scroll position

    I found a confusion to quickly identify differences between "Preserve scroll position" and "Fixed position when scrolling" looking alike check boxes, and resulting checking a wrong box and then dealing with prototype "glitches", XD agent support, and overall time waste.

    I hope XD Design can do something better to visually identifying distinction between these two features/functionalities in XD user interface, such as adding icons to better visualize "fixed position" and "preserve scroll Y-coordinate"

  15. Movable / Animatable Pivot Points for an Object / Component

    It would increase animation possibilities if we could change the position of an object's pivot point from one artboard to another.

    If there was a way to dynamically parent one object to another, animated pivot points would be even more useful.

  16. Very low-fidelity wireframe kits and components

    Need to have components, objects, UI kits, etc written to support, Low-Fedelity wireframes. Reason for this is their the only ones that work well with Design lead workshops and ideation workshops.
    This because the users don't get distracted and overwhelmed by details like in the high fidelity mode.

    Currently use balsamiq for this, but XD should be a better alternative with this feature request implemented.

  17. Ability to Hide Specific Screens from Prototype View

    Would like the concept of being able to mark 'hide' for specific artboards from the Prototype view.

    This would allow artboards to exist within the same XD file for reference but not display at all when in Prototype mode navigating through the screens.

  18. Multiple rotations in animation

    For animations, it would be very helpful to allow for multiple rotations so I'm not limited a single 359-degree rotation. This will allow for much simpler loading style animations which currently I have to do some trickery to make it look like it is spinning more than once.

  19. Links that scroll under a layer should not be clickable

    Links that scroll UNDER a fixed layer, should NOT be clickable. Currently, the link can be clicked "through" the layer.

    For instance, if you have a fixed header at the top, and links below it in the body area that can scroll behind/under the header, are still clickable through the header...

  20. Sceenshots in presentation mode, with device frames (Mobile, Laptop, Desktop)

    Sometimes screenshots of a design are needed, sometimes it makes sence to do these within adevice frame - the preview mode is already providing video recordin. I think it would be an improovement to display the recordings in a device frame as well (if wanted mby the designer), and also making the user able to do screenshots as well, in the preview mode.
