  2. Define multiple strings at once

    Make it possible to define multiple Strings by selecting all elements that are supposed to hold those strings. Saves a lot of time.

  3. Lock attributes between states

    When using states for controls, there is no logic in making each states a different size or label. It would save a lot of time and mistakes to lock some attributes that will always be identical between states.

  4. .exe export

    Hi
    I needed to .exe export when I create a project demo on prototyping mode to sending this export to the manager or somebody that he doesn't have XD on his Computer.
    please add .exe export in this section.
    thank's a lot.

  5. Fix position with variable height

    I love the fixed position in prototype mode but it only works for elements inside the initial viewport. I'd like to be able to pin an element further down the page once I scroll past it. For example share icons on a blog post, or a sub menu on a product list page.

    If there could be a pixel height for when something becomes "sticky" that would work well. For example "Fix Position when 750px have been scrolled". Thank you

  6. A simple keyboard command to an delete interaction when in prototype mode

    It is difficult delete an interaction now, (or in fact change it but that is for another day) to delete it you have to keep moving to where you want to delete an interaction from, since you have added the '+' on prototype link items.

    A simple keyboard command al la 'paste interaction' would be perfect then no scrolling around the canvas will be required.

    Thanks for the feedback. If you currently select the wire, you can press the delete key to delete the wire. If you have multiple, you can select the interaction in the property inspector and press the delete key. Are you looking for something different?

  7. Draw Multiple lines at a time and attach them to one artboard at the same time

    Say we have 200 artboards, and one of them is a home screen. Instead of connecting lines one-by-one to the home screen artboard, we should be able to select multiple artboards or other objects and drag them to the home sceen. So if you shift-clicked on multiple objects/artboards, then you should be able to draw a line at one time, and connect all of the artboards to the home screen.

    A is the home screen, B and C are other parts, with home buttons. Instead of having to drag a from B to A, and C to A, users should…

  8. keep audio from stopping when a new artboard pops up.

    basically, when i tap the play button on a music app i'm prototyping, if i happen to tap another button or click onto another artbord, it will stop the audio. there should be a way to pause and play the audio. that would be very helpful. thanks!

  9. Animate paths

    Defining a path the elements follow while in auto animate is a feature that will be appreciated. While creating a graph some elements have to follow the curve of the graph like a point on the graph. While animating that using auto animate, the point moves outside the graph. Yes, multiple dashboards can be used to define it but with path animation, only two artboards will be enough.

  10. add audio playback to all interactions and don't interrupt audio

    It would be great to have the audio action on triggers other than Tap. My first use case for audio used a keyboard trigger.

    Also, it's disappointing that the audio playback seems to be interrupted by other screens. Without being able to play a whole audio file OR play audio on triggers like time, there's no way to do something like:

    scan : play scan sound
    auto-animate loading indicator
    timer trigger navigates to error screen : play error sound

    (working on industrial warehouse software so sounds are important)

  11. Mouse trigger

    When designing for PCs or Macs, having the ability to trigger actions for mouse buttons would be helpful. Especially left, right, and middle buttons.

    I am using Adobe XD for game interaction design and this feature would be helpful.

  12. Trigger interactions on key/gamepad button down

    Another user has requested this for the mouse/touch down. This would also be beneficial for keys & gamepad triggers.

    I am using this software to prototype game interactions. An example of this input being used is a transition to an overlay radial menu for selections to be made. The radial menu would disappear if the key/button is released.

    Having this request fulfilled would be welcome.

  13. Multiple actions on keys & gamepad, drag, & voice triggers

    The recent update for multiple actions on tap triggers is great. Please carry this functionality over to the other triggers.

    I am using this software to prototype game interactions and having this request fulfilled would be welcome.

  14. Support color transitions in auto-animate

    The latest update (OCT,15,2018) got me so excited I thought of giving it a spin after a long time. Great work team!

    The feature I wanted to request was the ability to see colors transition from one to the other' smoothly in auto animate'. Right now it just jumps to the next (check attachment).

    For now this effect can be achieved in after effects by keyframing the 'Fill' preset.

  15. Convert artboard links to component states

    Problem: Components quickly become convoluted and hard to track. They lose track of elements in Auto Animate. They have problems when nesting components. Still we cannot allow for two swipes on one object.

    Possible Solution: Since linking artboards seems to be more stable and intuitive than components. I wish we could simply turn linked artboards into components.

  16. 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…

  17. States be retained across canvases, and retained as children

    Having a card component with a hover state, and within this card component is a checkbox.

    If I hover over the card component and mark the checkbox as selected, when the card component goes back to regular mode as I am not hovering any longer - the checkbox unchecks.

  18. interaction connector overlapping

    Overlapping of multiple interaction connectors cause difficulty in selecting the arrow of interest (blue arrow in attached img) requiring clicking once on root and again on arrow.

  19. Change language of speech playback

    I'm brazilian and I'm using Adobe Xd in English.
    I don't know why but the speech playback is speaking in Brazilian portuguese, but I wanted it to be in English.

    Let us choose the language of the speech playback. Let us choose between the available languages in the Help > Language menu.

  20. View all interactions in the property inspector when an object is selected

    Currently (Xd 28) when we select an object that has interactions with different destinations, the property inspector is just blank. We need to select one of the wires to view the interactions.

    It would be great to see in the property inspector an overview of all interactions associated with that object when we click on the object itself. Very similar to what we see when we click on a wire that has multiple interactions.

    That should help in those moments that I start hunting my wires to understand why I can't use a certain trigger (as it is already in…
