  1. 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.

  2. Preference for default spacing/gap when creating new artboards

    Ability to change the default spacing when pasting a copied artboard, or when clicking with the Artboard tool to add new artboards.


    Original request:
    (please vote for https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13623243-resize-spacing-between-objects if you're interested in this Repeat-Grid-like dragging idea)
    Apply REPEAT GRID padding adjustment feature to change the padding around a selected group of Art Boards -- Just like REPEAT GRID pink padding adjusters, it would be great to change the spacing of a group of art boards the user has selected, and/or the ability to change the default spacing when pasting a copied art board

  3. Simulate lazy loading of data for mobile apps

    As development on scrollable artboards has already begun, it would be good to have a feature of Lazy Loading data on scroll. This would be very helpful for realistic presentation of data on mobile apps.

  4. VR - Virtual Reality Prototype Capability For Android Cardboard

    This might be a little forward thinking, however, I wanted to be the first to post something for VR. It is inevitable. __ Cheers.

  5. Only record mouse clicks on prototype record

    At the moment, in prototype mode the circle follows the mouse on the recording. It would be good to have this act more like a finger does on a phone (which is not touching the screen all the time).

    I would like the option to have the touch feedback only show on click (or touch).

    This could also feed into recording from a device when device preview is available.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Record only a portion of the Preview window

    I'd like the ability to crop a section of a prototype when recording.

    For example, if I want to record a video of clicking through a form, I don't need to show the entire layout — just the relevant section.

    This would result in a better visualization tool, as well as smaller video or gif file sizes.

  9. 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.

  10. stack prototype link connection points

    stack the link connection points between artboards as currently when zoomed out they overlap each other making it very unclear and hard to select them

  11. A larger connection handle on touch screens, please...

    I had the luxury of using Adobe XD on a Microsoft Surface Studio, for a whole week. Designing and controlling a project with your fingers at such a large screen sure feels great, but... didn't anyone of the XD team ever notice that the connection handles are just too small to touch and drag ?

  12. 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....

  13. 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.

  14. Choose whether to add border to shared prototype

    Realize that this was "fixed" by removing borders for prototypes, but I am now having an issue with designs that use a white background color.

    It is hard to tell the boundaries of the viewport. Feel like it will be impossible to satisfy everyone with a default setting.

    Any way we could choose to add a border color to our prototypes?

  15. Prototype view desktop design

    Dear Adobe, could you please NOT add borders to my desktop design layout canvas when previewed in prototype mode? I don't want a black background surrounding the outside area of my screen, all I want is to be able set that color myself so the open layout can be showed as intended. So if the bg color of my desktop design is orange I don't want a black background outside my layout in fullscreen. It is totally pointless and it makes it utterly impossible to demonstrate and open design where the layout is fixed where I have set it and…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. Generate password automatically.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the new feature - password on shared prototype.
    Everything works well, except that I need to generate secured password by myself.

    So, kindly add auto generate feature.

    Thanks.

  19. Published Prototype Interactions too Subtle

    Loving the updates but my clients are confused. As a designer, the prototype layout makes sense — As a non-designer, it's not clear what actions should be taken.

    I think the Invision prototype screen is initially more intuitive. For instance, it first opens in fullscreen mode (allowing for that first look excitement from the client) but has a sticky container that clearly tells the viewer they can take more actions to view and add comments and see additional artboards.

    In short, I think the prototype needs to be catered more towards clients.

    Thank you!

  20. Confirmation Box when Creating New Link

    When you have an existing shared project and you go to "Share Again", because you need to update the link, the new link is directly under the "Share Again" button, so I have accidentally clicked "New Link" when I only wanted to do an update.

    This mistake means I have to contact the entire Executive and Sales levels associated with the source project, to let them know about the new link they now have to distribute to all of the Clients / Prospects / Partners. This also means update PowerPoints that have the link embedded with them, etc... It's a…
