  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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 ?

  6. 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.

  7. Prototype wires should go underneath artboards when not being edited

    Have the ability for prototype wires to go underneath the artboards.

    This feature would be would be already made wires, any wire that you are live-editing would be above artboards.

  8. 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....

  9. 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)

  10. Global scroll position toggle (rather than current link by link basis)

    "Preserve Scroll Position" is out! Works great!

    But, it would be great if we could have this control outside (and possibly as a Global/Art Board/User Selection) of each individual "link target modal"?

    Having to click the "Preserve Scroll Position" button on EVERY LINK I WANT IT TO WORK ON IS TEDIOUS AND AGGRAVATING.

  11. Improvements of the linking method in Prototype mode

    I am working on a few projects that are nearing 100 screens, and linking them starts to become a problem.

    Here are a few things that I think might help the situation:

    1. Use the artboards order from the side panel into the dropdown menu. I don't know how the order in the dropdown is created, maybe by time of creation of the artboard, but is certainly not by name. By doing this we can at least group the artboards and find them more easily.

    2. Incorporating a search bar into the dropdown is kinda strange and confusing, so another solution for…

  12. No hotspot for scrollable screens

    There is no hotspot for giving a hint that an artboard is scrollable.

    We got it for buttons when clicking outside an clickable area. But there is not hints for scrollable artboards.

    It is easy to forget to look for that feature and it makes the end user to miss out of content.

    Posted a video of showing the problem. There could be an hint that there is more content to view.

  13. Dynamic Type

    Hi, would be great to have dynamic type incorporated into prototype mode. Is there any plan to implement this in future release?

  14. Ability to make interaction points dialog explaining functionality in prototype

    Similar to Microsoft visio this feature will give users the Ability to make interaction points explaining functionality in the prototype. The user will be able to draw an arrow pointing at the element linking to the dialog box. A dialog box will give user info on functionality or explain Interaction point.
    This feature will show in prototype mode and give the option to enable in share prototype mode.

    As a user, I can draw an interaction box.
    As a user, I can link interaction box to shape/element/ect.
    As a user, I can choose to enable this when I share a…

  15. "Dip to Black" transition

    When jumping between user flows (i.e. illustrating what a different user would see), a "dip to black" transition would be very useful. It's a powerful transition used in film editing to indicate a change in context, or time passing.

  16. Add Scroll trigger to the prototype interaction

    I often need to present a scroll-triggered interaction/animation, e.g. app-bar and bottom-nav hide/show upon user scrolling the content.

    This is a typical and essential behavior on mobile when user needs to view a long list of results, list of messages or emails or any list of long scrolling content thus to utilize screen real-estate to display more.

    Having this feature be wonderful! With that I'd also like to have a capability to set a fixed position when scrolling (setting X and Y coordinates) of a certain element upon user scrolling.

  17. Toggle state should be above everything else

    1. Description of the feature
      When you activate 'Toggle State' in prototype mode, the 'Toggle State' should be above anything else. Similar with z-index: 999.

    2. Why this is valuable to you
      It's just how it should work.

    3. If possible, an image or video that helps us understand your feature request

  18. Improve scrolling in desktop and online preview

    A lot of basic prototypes I am making are rather difficult to use because of the scrolling behavior. As seen in the video attached, when using click and hold to scroll down, the click release will launch the event of the element that the mouse indicator is on.

    Similarly, when you have a horizontal scroll group and using the mouse to drag, the click release will launch an event.

    With the horizontal scroll group, you also expect no vertical scrolling but this happens inevitably. So both the vertical and horizontal scroll groups do not live up to their name, as…

  19. Prototype once for all gamepad types

    You prototype in one gamepad controller, the prototype works in every gamepads

    My struggle: I need to make the same prototype work with 4 different controllers: Xbox one, Xbox seres S, Ps4 and PS5 because I cannot ask the entire company to buy the same gamepad as mine.

    I beg you guys.

    Please make a gamepad map where you can do it only for one controller and it will work the same for all of them. There are only few buttons that differ from the others. Imagine me, working on a 100 pages prototype, need to set one single interaction…

  20. Show Keyboard Interactions on Desktop Preview

    It would be useful to show the keyboard interactions whilst in 'Desktop Preview' mode. Just as a cursor is shown whilst recording, to indicate where a user has clicked to progress through a prototype, when keyboard actions or shortcuts are used to navigate it would great to have the option of displaying them on screen.
