  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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.

  6. Wacom Tablet Support for Prototype Link Navigation Scroll

    Wacom Tablet scroll support needed for live prototypes. Our team use XD and love the application, we use Wacom tablets for all of our design work and have to dig out and dust off the old Mouse when viewing prototypes - which is a bit of a pain and I am sure we are not the only design studio to share this pain!!

    Support for tablet scrolling would be very beneficial.

    Thanks and keep up the amazing work

    Regards

    Michael

  7. Scroll online prototype by click and drag

    In full screen mode, online prototypes don't:


    • show a scrollbar to go over the project, which would have been ok if Adobe Xd had allowed scrolling by clicking and dragging the artboard;


    • ocupy the whole space on the sides of the viewport.


    Take a look at the next prototype made in Figma. It would be cool if Adobe Xd could take care of those aspects as good as Figma does.

  8. Stop point for drag trigger

    Quite simply the option to designate a stop point for a drag trigger.

    ie. Drag up from a bottom menu to a 2/3 point, where it stops. Drag up a second/third etc time to bring up a sheets style menu to whatever point you would like.

  10. Imbed Code Block

    Please allow the embedding of a code block within your design. That way you can integrate existing assets or 3erd party designs. This is particularly helpful for iframes to interactive experiences or components of animation.

  11. Set layer order to match destination artboard before auto-animating

    When auto-animating to another artboard, currently the order of layers in the layer panel is as it appears in the source artboard, and doesn't update to the order in the destination artboard until the animation is complete. This results in layers being covered by other layers, making it difficult to simulate an element scaling and rising above other elements on the z axis (see attachment).

    It would be preferable if the order of layers in the layers panel was first updated to the order in the destination artboard, then the animation begins.

  12. Modulators for animated backgrounds and fills

    are there any plans to include a modulator feature? eg:like a low frequency oscillator (with sawtooth, sinewave etc).

    this would make a wide range of generative stuff possible, animated backgrounds correlated to the fibbonaci sequence for design purposes, stuff a bit like brian eno's 77 million paintings might also be possible if a high number of modulators were able to be assigned to a single parameter like color or image for example.

    also things like phasing etc in the visual domain would be possible for design purposes.

    being able to modulate both colors, various aspects of pages and transitions would…

  14. Drag on a curve

    The may overlap other requests, apologies if it does. The ability to drag along a line is fantastic but if we could drag around a circle it would open up a whole lot more to your users.

  15. Hands Free Voice Prototyping

    Would love to be able to navigate a voice prototype WITHOUT having to long press the screen. Having to interact with the screen in order to use voice defeats the purpose of voice prototyping.

    I understand there may be privacy concerns, but perhaps there's an option where you can have voice "turned on" at the prototype level. Meaning as soon as you navigate to the prototype and open it, Adobe confirms that this prototype uses voice and that you as a user consent to the mic being turned on as long as particular prototype is open on the phone. If…

  16. Dim the background when preview window is active

    When you click on the desktop preview, dim the background if it's on the same monitor your Artboards are on. I constantly have to scroll the artboards off screen to be able to demo the preview for someone.

  17. Improve the method to set Speech Playback

    The method to set a Playback action appears quite complicated for many of my course attendees to grasp (setting the Artboard handle as a Timed animation with a Speech action) and definitely too difficult to discover. It even gets worse when they try to understand why to drag the handle from destination to source (as indicated in many Help files). Why not tell users to simply click the stub to invoke the heads-up display and get that initial confusion out of the way ?

  18. Boolean intersect should allow no overlap to support auto-animate

    I am not sure this is a bug or a feature request. But I am using the boolean intersect operation to intersect 2 vector shapes. I am then animating the intersection. But soon as I reach the masked object bounds or just beyond it the boolean intersection undoes itself. I have attached a video.

  19. 3D element layout and preview for Microsoft Teams based Hololens experiences

    If I want to create 3D elements and objects for use with Microsoft Teams I should be able to quickly and easily mock all this up in XD.

    https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=hololens+1st+line+work+demo&view=detail&mid=5B35A2CF22AEB5096FCC5B35A2CF22AEB5096FCC&FORM=VIRE

    Fast forward into 2:20. I want to prototype that type of experience in XD. Go get the Redmond partners to build some bridgeware here....

  20. Save prototype hotspots in asset section

    Instead of having to create the same hotspot multiple times (back buttons, navigation menu etc) could we have a feature where you can save the hotspots you've already created and be able to reuse them across multiple screens (similar to invision's hotspot prototyping feature)
