    • Multiple owners on a prototype / specification document

      I work on a team of designers. We're working on establishing a company-wide style guide. We'd like to be able to have a shared Xd file that we all contribute to separately. Currently we can't all publish to the same link. So one person will have to take ownership of the prototype. It would be beneficial for us to be able to publish our changes into that master file.

      • Emoji and Image on Comments

        When posting comments on the shared design on the web, I would love to be able to use emoji and images in the comments similar to Slack or Dropbox.

          • Allow multiple people to share a link to the same URL

            Collaborative work: Updating 'share link' of an .xd file not possible on another machine

            System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
            XD-Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta

            We are working with different people on the same .xd file. Updating the prototype link is only possible on the machine with wich the .xd file was created. The other people can only create new links.

            1. Create an .xd file
            2. Publish prototype
            2. Save the .xd file
            3. Open the same .xd file on another machine
            4. Updating the published prototype link not possible (only creation of new link)

              Hello,

              Sorry for the confusion. This behavior in XD is intentional. Only the user who created a prototype link is able to update that link. The thinking is that the owner for the link may not want others making changes.

              At the moment, the only way for multiple people to update a prototype at the same URL is to be logged in with the same Creative Cloud account. We are however discussing adding the ability to specify more than one owner for a prototype – and we could then allow all owners to update the prototype link. It sounds like this is what you were expecting and the behavior you would like to see, is that correct?

            • Exit full screen mode on shared prototypes

              When prototypes are shared online they look best in full screen mode, however there is no way to exit full screen mode except using the .esc key which isn't intuitive to clients. So many of them just close the browser and start again, or just give up.

              Can you please add a button to exit full screen mode.

              • Can't publish prototypes that don't contain interaction?

                I just updated my XD to 2.0 (2.0.32.10). I'm using a mid-15 MBPr. I just realized this morning when I tried to get a sharing link of the prototype for my colleague that XD now does not allow me to generate a sharing link because the home artboard doesn't contain any interaction.
                Somehow I can understand the design logic behind this, but still there's something that doesn't add up. If XD are preventing prototypes that contain no interaction to be published and get their sharing links, then what's the Previous Page / Next Page buttons being in the online preview…

                • Ability to hide Artboard while Publishing

                  Ability to tag/hide certain artboards so that when we Publish the Prototype those remains hidden from the user view. If I've 35 artboards out of which 5 are still work in progress, while publishing the prototype all 35 gets published and user will be able to navigate to those 5 unfinished ones. If XD allows me to tag those 5 artboards so that they remain hidden after I publish the prototype and the end user only sees 30 artboards then it would be great.

                  • Activity stream in shared files

                    I'd like to see an overview of all the activities and comments on all of the pages within a document that is shared. Otherwise there's quite a good possibility of missing some.

                    Something like Invision has would be great:

                    • Export "Share Online" Markups as Annotated PDF

                      The agency I work for is very particular about archiving internal and external markups. It would be great to have an option to export the "Share Online" markups into an annotated PDF for archiving.

                        Comments are great and I always use them. I find myself wanting to reorder comments so my 5th comment (for example) can be placed at the top as my 1st comment.

                        • Separate share online options for Design vs Prototype Mode

                          With the current share online options, while you are in design mode, you can share online, and see all artboards for comparison. However once you move into prototyping mode and link up a few of the artboards and refresh your online share, only the artboards that are connected through links are accessible.

                          It would be great to have the option in design mode to share all or even better, a selection of artboards for UI comparison. And a seperate set of options for Prototype mode share online (inclusive of a toggle for turn off all transition effects - in some…

                          • Inform viewers of updates to the screens

                            I'd like to suggest to have a notification somewhere to inform the viewers that the prototype has been updated so that the current viewers could refresh the page. If a developer is looking at it, he wouldnt realise that there were changes made to the screen as there is no indicator of new changes. So every time I shared my prototype again, I had to inform the team (through slack or trello) that I've made some updates so that they could refresh the page to look at changes made to the screens.

                            I don't want it interrupt ongoing presentations or…

                            • Control whether artboard navigation arrows are visible in prototype or not

                              Currently, shared prototypes on the web show navigation controls at the bottom sometimes, but not always. Specifically, nav controls are only visible if (a) the commenting sidebar is open, or (b) all the time, _if_ the prototype has no clickable hotspots (interaction wires).

                              As the author of the prototype, I'd like to be able to make the nav controls visible all the time -- even if I do have interactions defined.

                              There may also be use cases where you want the arrows hidden even when a user is leaving comments.

                              • File Preview and Prototype directly in Creative Cloud Web Interface

                                Currently the View of a XD file in the Webinterface inside Creative Cloud is pretty bare.

                                It would be great, to add a rich preview of the file like the on Photoshop or Illustrator Files. This could be split up into different sections like full file Preview, the Prototype view and a view for Developers to extract measures and assets.

                                This way you automatically get access control to the prototype.

                                • Share Again – don’t copy URL on Saved-As

                                  I often ‘save as’ my app, and rebrand it for a different client. Despite renaming the saved-as file, if I SHARE AGAIN, it will remember the old URL – and sometimes I’m tired enough to accidentally over-write the file. This would be disastrous with clients! Please forget the URL of a saved-as file.

                                  • Shorten link

                                    The link is rather long. I usually run my link through bit.ly to prevent long links.

                                    Shorter links would be great when sharing prototypes with clients.

                                    • Revert to old link after creating a new link

                                      Hi! I just accidentially created a new link for a project when I intended to update the link. I can not find a way to revert to the old link. This is important in this scenario because we had notes to/from the client in the old link that we now are copy/pasting into the new link, but it would be ideal to simply revert and delete the accidental new link. Thanks for considering this!

                                      • Assets artboard should get created automatically

                                        While sharing the screens to developers on the web. Assets artboard having all the icons/images should get created automatically when all the interactions / screens are done ... and icons/images are marked as assets. This way not only developers can see all the assets at one go but also can download them instantly instead of going to multiple pages and downloading assets separately. It will make designers life easy as well.

                                        • Display the "Update link" button as a primary action

                                          Version : 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.2.61

                                          Click the share button in the top right corner and select "Share again".

                                          The "Update link" and "New link" buttons look exactly the same. Several times I have come to press the wrong button. In 100% of the cases, I want to update the existing link. I would therefore argue that it makes sense to emphasize this as a primary action.
