  2. Continuous Drag with Increments

    This may overlap with requests for horizontal scrolling and drag direction but it may solve both.

    Drag currently only works between two states and in one direction. It would be nice if several artboards could be used with the same drag. For example: think of a carousel with multiple images shown horizontally. I don't want to have to click+drag each time I want to advance. It would be nice if I could click once and continue dragging until the specific image I want is centered. Letting go would snap to that artboard. During the drag it would transition through all…

  3. 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

  4. [Windows] Remove scroll bar in Windows desktop preview

    Can we get rid of or have the option to disable the scroll bar on desktop preview for mobile app designs, it blocks some design and ruins the prototype experience.

  5. Add a Shake/vibration effect/easing in auto animation

    Sometime you need a little shake effect for error or other things without moving the position of the elements

  6. Switch between different variants of a design in the shared prototype

    I have come across an issue whilst trying to display my designs of my client's new website design. I would like to be able to show them both the desktop and mobile version within the XD file but at the moment, I am unable to do that, would be great if this feature could be added.

    Thanks

  7. Design Panel and String Variables

    The biggest hog of screen space and effort tied to interactive mock-ups is the creation of multiple art boards to accommodate simple transformations of screen objects.

    It would be great to be able to assign a variable tag to the values in the design panel and then be able to set the limits/increment values to them. This would also apply to strings.

    Using my Clock example from another feature request:
    I could assign the rotation variable to my hands set the limit to 10° then set another button to cycle that symbols rotation variable. Otherwise using the current art board…

  8. Using information bubbles on prototype

    I prototype using PowerPoint. One of its best tools is using text bubbles to clarify my thoughts without the need to prototype them. It helps for lean prototyping.
    The text bubbles work by an order I declare. Each keystroke (playing a presentation) will display only one text bubble in locations it defined in the Prototype mode.

    Using text bubbles helps me delivering my prototype to the customer much more effectively.

    The bubbles don't have to be text, they can have images and rich media text also.

    These bubbles are not comments from the stakeholder, they are created by the UX…

  9. Make Parallax on Slide Transition an Option

    The slide transition (coming soon) with parallax effect looks sweet, but there may be cases where it is not desired, or will not work. I think it would be ideal if the slight parallax effect on slide was an option instead of being applied by default. Thanks!

    [added clarification] Customer would prefer it if we had an option for the the background to stay static/not to move during the transition.

  10. Prototyping behavior library

    We might use XD for a lot of different design options. Web, iOS, Android, AppleTV etc... It would be nice, for a given platform to have specific actions of protyping for the most common ones (native interaction basics). In the form of a library of interaction behaviour.

  11. Stack actions within a single interaction (multiple, cascading, ordered)

    Let's say you're designing a switch, and you want to hint to the user that it can toggle with a tap, so you want it to bounce gently when hovered over. It would be great to be able to auto-animate to a different state, then immediately auto-animate back to the previous state upon completion of the first action.

    The ability to stack actions would allow for complex interactions with the least amount of user interaction.

  12. 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

  13. Combining Speech Playback with auto-animation

    If I use Speech Playback I would like to show an animated feedback at the same time. For that it should be possible to define for a time trigger the "Speech Playback"-action and the "auto-animate"-action at the same time. Right now I'm not able to combine both. I only can use a tap-trigger but that isn't a reaction of a voice input.

  14. Better Previous Artboard Logic / Control

    Please add a blacklist / whitelist option to the "Previous Artboard" links.

    The problem: "Previous Artboard" logic is linear, which only works for specific use cases.

    Example: From a "Parent" page, user clicks a link to a subpage that has tabs. They click the tabs on the subpage a couple times, and now want to use a back button that takes them back to the "Parent". Currently, "Previous Artboard" will take them back through all the tabs they clicked on, before finally getting back to the "Parent".

    Solution: The designer can blacklist or whitelist a group of Artboards, and/or single…

  15. Auto Arrange Artboard Layout in Prototype Mode

    I'd love to have some auto arrangement in prototype mode, which might be really helpful when screens get too much and organising them turns into pain. I've seen other softwares dealing with this kind of problem very neatly.

  16. Ability to update selected artboards rather the updating the entire prototype

    most of my project are huge and heavy, not less than 200 artboard

    I would like the ability to update certain or specific artboards on the link rather than uploading all the link again

    that's time-consuming.

    plus some times I would like to share specific changes done with my manager while other changes are still under going-which I don't want my manager to see yet

  17. "Click-Outside" trigger, for micro-interactions

    Hey good people!

    Would be great if we have a new trigger for "click-outside" elements.I know that some ways to hack this feature, but would be so much easier to handle state changes on complex components if we could select a click-outside element trigger.

    Thank you, folks! Adobe XD is awesome!

  18. Smooth cursor animation in prototype recording

    When recording a prototype interaction, the circle cursor shows off all of the jerky movements of my mouse. An option to automatically smooth my cursor movements would make for a cleaner and higher fidelity animation.

  19. 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.

  20. Display unconnected screens in prototype mode

    There should be a way to easily identify unconnected screens.
    And/or there should be a way to remove ALL connections, so I don't need to make one connection to display all screens in design spec.

    Background: I'm always having the same problem: I connect my screens in prototype mode, upload the design specs, developers are getting the link and then a screen is missing. Then I'm editing it, connecting it again or add/modify screens, I upload it again and the developer sees only the connected screens. This makes me so crazy sometimes because finding out which screen is not connected…
