  1. Support game controller navigation

    There are many applications where the interface is navigated with input devices like game controllers. It would be great if we could get some support for these.

  2. Scrollable pages in prototype full screen preview

    Enable 'fit to width' and scroll pages when previewing prototypes.

    Currently the full screen preview fits the height of the design within your screen, so for long desktop pages, you can't mimic a browser experience.

  3. Multiple Interactions on a Single Element

    Allow for multiple interactions on a single elements. Aka, be able to drag multiple wires from a single object.

    Use case 1: When designing a carousel, a user should be able to swipe on an object left or right and navigate to the next or previous slide.

    Use case 2: When designing an app with similar interactions to Bumble or Tinder, the test subject should be allowed multiple interactions on the same object. Swipe up, down, left, or right.

    We introduced the ability to add multiple interactions on a single element in the most recent version of XD. You can select an object and select the + button on the wire or in the prototype mode property inspector to add an interaction!

  4. Multiple interactions on a single artboard

    We need to add multiple ways of moving from one screen to another. Currently the only way to do this is to add the interactions to various elements on the artboard, which makes it difficult to find where those interactions are.

    For example, to move from artboard A to artboard B, a user could press Home, Down or say "Artboard A". I can only add one of these interactions to the artboard as a whole at the moment.

  5. Keyboard interaction to trigger transitions

    I'd love to see the ability to transition between artboards by using the keyboard.

    For the UI, I'd place a keyboard icon just below the "set as home" icon. When you click it, you can see a list of current key transitions and a button to add a new one. When you click the new button, you have a box to enter the key to bind and then an arrow to link the artboard the key will transition to.

    It would be important to include the ability to link keys such as the arrow keys, space bar, escape key, etc.

  6. Disable hotspot hinting & show "link" mouse cursor in places that don't link to anything

    In usability studies we need a way to drop fake hotspots that do not have to be linked, the reason that we need this is so that the user can click around more and hover over things to help the prototype not lead the user into clicking the item that we've enabled.

    If we could just drawing a hotspot and linking it on every single page of a flow is not idea and just being able to draw a hotspot and link it to nothing while activating the mouse hand to still go to a pointer will help our studies…

    Hi Everyone,

    We added a way for you to turn hotspots off on the web prototypes. You can now add “?hints=off” to your URL and no hotspots will show.

    In the future, we’ll add this option to the Share Online dialog, but, for now, you can just add the additional parameter to your URL.

    This request also includes some users who want us to turn off hand cursor changes. We did not do this when hotspots are off because we are unsure if this is really what people want. If your use case includes one where you want cursor changes off, please vote on this issue and make a comment:

    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/19766590-turn-off-cursor-changes-when-hotspots-are-off

    Let us understand your use case a bit better. Thanks!

  7. Zoom tool in Prototype Mode

  8. Advanced Overlay Option (background Treatment)


    • I would like to have the option of selecting how the background behaves when an overlay is being presented. this is important as I feel currently I'm restricted for the most part to 'Dissolve Transition' as it is weird showing the background sliding when included in the overlay artboard itself


    • Additionally, combined with timed transitions, one can showcase notifications
      .


    • Lastly, the ability to select the option of whether the overlay is pinned on Viewport (current implementation) or Artboard (for dropdowns beyond screen cut-off)

  9. 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.

  10. Printing

    Would love to be able to print out my screens. I know I can export assets and then print, but a one step print function would be awesome.

  11. Prototype mode: Backspace should delete wire

    I would expect the backspace key to remove transitions (in Prototype mode) instead of objects/layers.

    Use case: In the Design mode the users adds & removes panels, afterwards he makes the switch from Design to Prototype mode. There his mindset is to create (and remove) transitions. He wants to modify the prototype and add/remove transitions. After selecting a (blue) transition, he presses the backspace key to remove an already existing transition, but as of XD v0.6.1.13 the layer/artboard where the transition originates from disappears.

    What the backspace key is in Design mode (to undo one's action = removing an object),…

  12. Flag any unlinked artboard

    While all Links are visible (Cmd+A)

    Having an error highlight on a Page(s) if it's not linked to another Page.

    Example: It would be a nice way to know if you've forgotten to relink Page A to Page C if you've needed to delete Page B.

  13. Shape/path Morph transitions

    Add the option to morph an element to another from a step to the next during transitions.
    For example a button in Step 1 can be linked in the prototype to a input field in Step 2. Then during the transition, AdobeXD should morph the button element to the input field.
    Both elements can be made with SVG assets, and morphed with the Gsock SVG Morph animation library.

  15. Paste Multiple interactions at once

    With the latest update of adobe XD you can copy & paste the interaction from one element to another but considering we usually have same elements across multiple screens with minor variations like active & hover states etc ( for example a bottom navigation bar in mobile app) it is still a tedious task to copy & paste interaction across all those multiple screen so i suggest that we should be able to select multiple elements ( say 4 buttons at navigation bar on screen 1 ) and copy interaction, then select the 4 items on screen 2 and paste…

  16. Deselect Home Artboard

    Need the ability to 'deselect' the home artboard.

    Issue: If I create a prototype with links to the home artboard I can share everything linked to home.

    If I then need to remove all connectors so none of the pages were linked, but I still want to publish all artboards, it won't allow me to do it. Only the home artboard is selected.

    Basically, once you have physically selected the home artboard by clicking the home icon (rather than having XD do it by default when you create your first board) then you're done! Only one screen can be published…

  17. Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch.

    Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch, In this way helps us to create an screen easily doing drag and drop.

    We’ve been working with a variety of partners to provide more robust UI kits for you to use, including menu elements. Apple, Google, and Microsoft have all provided a number of different UI kits with sticker sheet elements to get you started.

    Note that you can also create new artboards by simply switching to the artboard tool and clicking.

    Please do feel free to file a new story if you’d like to see additional features.

    Thanks,

  18. Preview on Browser

    Hi there,

    The user should have the ability to see the mockup prototype on Browsers or other devices. This kind of feature would be an effective addition for desktop designers and mobile designers alike.

    Nowadays, we are only able to preview on the a mobile device screen size, which is useless for desktop or even other device design.

    Thanks

    Closing this issue due to inactivity on an open query. You can already preview a web artboard in full screen mode, which gives you as much real estate as you have on your screen. If there’s something specific you’re looking for, please do file a separate idea in the system!

  19. Keep multiple different shared Prototype versions live

    Currently when update a shared prototype, it replaces the previous version, it would be nice to have the option to retain previous versions.

    These versions could then be compared side by side to easily review changes, as an added bonus the versions could be linked together so as you navigate one version the previous version would move in sync (where possible)

    In a future update, there will be an option to create a “new” public link. This keeps the previous one in tact in addition to creating a new one.

  20. Prototype 'Transition Options' in property inspector instead of in a popup

    The current UI for transitions is clunky and flows awkwardly. Every time I try to link to something lower on the page, the pop-up box appears below the 'fold'/screen and I have to move the artboard into view and re-click on the 'from' element to get the pop-up to appear. You've already trained the users to use the side-panel (right) to change elements in the design view, I think it makes sense to place the transitions in the same spot. It would greatly simplify the flow, as well as returning to edit transitions.
