  1. Component Master Create a Variation with same structure e.g Active Buttons, Alert Button

    Hi,

    I need to be able to create a variation of a Component Master with same structure hover, on click events e.g Active Buttons, Alert Buttons .

    Make it available so that the Instance of a Master Component can be a new Master Component., without having to recreate the structure on every component variant i need to create.

  2. 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

  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. Auto-animate in overlay

    I'd like to see auto-animate enabled in an overlay, for example in a prototype on an art board a user selects an element which reveals an overlay, and in the overlay a user can drag an element such as a panning navigation. Doable?

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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"

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Do not automatically highlight the key stroke in the Interaction Pane

    When I have an artboard set to transition with a keystroke, the keystroke automatically highlights and is editable when I select an artboard. I cannot then use Ctrl 3 to zoom into that art board. Instead, it changes the keystroke to Ctrl 3.

  15. I want to use keyboard trigger in device preview

    I want to use a PC keyboard trigger in device preview using iPad. It's to create a prototype that uses touch and hard switch operation, like Nintendo's Switch.

  17. App switching animation

    Sometimes I need to communicate that the user has switched between apps. It would be cool to have a special animation for transitioning between artboards that mimics the iOS/Android app switching experience.

  18. better control over which layers are being animated

    Give me more control over what layers will be used for animations. Currently auto-animate decides which layers are used for animated transitions based on their name. However I often have similarly named layers within a group. Not having to go trough all groups and choose new names for my layers I would like to be able to "break" auto animate connections as well as make new ones between layers myself without having to manually rename these layers.

  19. Option to stop showing the Instructions on the Prototyping Page when only using one artboard

    Hi

    It's really annoying having to press X on the instructions each time I want to use the prototyping tab. This happens if I only have one artboard and need to go into the prototyping tab to access the Fix Position tick box.

    Please can we have an option to stop showing it?. (see attached)

  20. Sort artboards in interaction popup to last edited

    I struggle always to find the target artboard I want to link it. Would make sense to show the last edited artboard first. Also, a better search and filter function would be great.
    . Makes more sense. Hard to find otherwise the artboard. Search Function also don't work very well. Thank you. you guys do awesome work.
