  1. Tile Background Images

    There needs to be an option, on Prototype mode, to "tile" background images.

    For example: this Adobe XD web page has a background image (or DIV) that repeats on the x-axis no matter how wide the browser window is (dark gray, horizontal top-bar).

    That feature would make the prototypes look as cloase as possible to what a web page would actually look in the wild.

    Thank you!

  2. Add an HTML/CSS element for interactivity

    It would be amazing if we could have the ability to insert a "placeholder" box which allows the input of HTML/CSS code to create an interactive element. For example; Drop down fields, accordions etc.

  3. Interactive Slider

    I'd like to be able to prototype a functional slider. I can currently achieve this effect my duplicating the entire artboard and switching out the slide content, but the load time when clicking through the slider is incredibly slow, and can be off-putting to clients. Also, utilizing this method means that if the design is altered even minutely, I have to delete all the duplicated artboards, then duplicate the main artboard again, replace the slide contents, and prototype it all again as well. It can be incredibly time consuming. I've attached a screenshot of a recent one-page website that had…

  4. Desktop Preview: switch between screen sizes (desktop, mobile, ...)

    If you create an artboard and make responsive versions it would be a useful feature when you could connect the different screen sizes of that artboard (desktop, tablet landscape, tablet portrait, mobile) and than show buttons in the preview window to switch between this screen sizes.

  5. Display artboard name in Preview

    When in 'Prototype mode > 'Preview', it would be really nice to show (or indicate) on the top where now is a line of text, which artboard you're at while tapping and clicking between the flow.

    When you work with multiple artboards and you suddenly you find say typo or false interaction, it's really difficult to go back to that specific artboard after you've left the Preview mode.

    I know you can do this...

    Cheers and thanks!

  6. Preview in device chrome

    My idea is to have a real looking or clay mockup like device frame when viewing prototypes like Invision studio is planning to do!

  7. 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,…

  9. Ability to view team prototypes

    Ability to view team prototypes. Similar to how you can view team assets. So that I as a creative director, or other team members can quickly find and reference prototypes completed by other team members

    We are exploring some ideas around this. If you have more ideas on how you think this should work, send me mail. How would you define your team, for example?

  10. Auto Animate support through symbols

    The transition animation of shapes from one screen to the other are not supported when they are symbols.

    The animation is smooth if the items are grouped but if these are symbols the animation seems to break.

    In the example the bottom nav bar is a symbol in one and a grouped element in the other

  11. scale prototype to browser window

    Please give users the option of scaling the prototype to browser width instead of just a straight - "view actual size" fullscreen option. It makes prototyping useless if we can't fit the prototype to the browser window.

  12. Assign artboard to a device for preview

    It would be great if I could give a artboard a device that is connected, so I can preview iPhone artboards on my connected iPhone, same for my iPad and so on. That would work pretty well with multiple device setups.

  13. Animate blur effects

    When using background blur or object blur, I want to be able to animate blur radius using Auto-Animate. Currently it will animate the position, size, & opacity of an object but it doesn't animate its blur.

  14. Display shared prototype in device chrome

    Ability to view or record the prototype based on the artboard that was used. Since there's already a list of specific artboards (iphonex, ipad, android etc.).

    The idea is when you publish a prototype there would be an option if you want it to be view on a device. Same as when recording it.

  15. Preview without window frame

    It would be nice to be able to hide the window frame on the Preview window, e.g. when I design for Windows on Windows I would like to be able to view artboards as if they're a window in the OS.

  16. Rotate Prototype: Preview window should adjust size automatically

    As a user, I want to be able to switch preview screen orientation (e.g., portrait to landscape) so that The preview looks like I've physically rotated the device.

    We have a portrait browsing experience. Users can click and watch a video in landscape mode. When trying to go back to portrait view, there seems to be some kind odd struggle in the preview window. It's not the same scale between the rotations.

  17. Run multiple prototypes simultaneously (multiple Preview windows in desktop app)

    I'm about to do a focus group - and we have a Mobile AND Web prototype we're running.

    Right now, I can only "play" one prototype at a time - Making side-by-side comparison impossible. (So if I click the play button on my Web prototype, it shows up, but when I click the play button on my Mobile prototype - it closes the web one to open the mobile one).

    I'd like to be able to have both running simultaneously - so we could compare interactions "live" as it were.

  18. Highlight/show in Design view the current artboard displayed in Preview window

    PainPoint:

    As you design more and more complex prototypes it gets really easy to forget where the Artboard is for the part of the flow you are at in the Design Previewer

    Solution:
    Highlight which Artboard it currently showing in the previewer so that you can make changes faster.

  19. Control symbol overrides from property inspector

    Right now, it is hard to manage overrides. Please can we have it on the right hand menu when selecting a symbol so we can override from there?

  20. Add multiple hotspots in same object

    Tappable carousel images are a common feature in mobile apps. These require the ability to swipe left, swipe right, and tap the same object. Please add this facility while introducing advanced interaction features in XD. Having a single interaction per object is a great deterrent in real-world user testing.
