  1. View map on shared prototype

    Add a view map - that is a collection of all pages - into shared web prototype.

    Currently it's a wee hard to navigate into a certain view without having to navigate through the app proto.

    It would make sense to be able to open this view map from the bottom of the screen, where Homy button and page navigation currently is.

    • Parent "folder" containing multiple XD projects

      Right now it seems like XD is made for the solo UX/UI designer who mainly does small freelance projects.

      For people on design teams in companies, the usability is very lacking.

      We are a team of 7 designers, working on multiple projects that sometimes interlink - but right now I share a prototype to the developers & PM, and they have to store that link somewhere.

      It'd be great if I could just give them one link say, "Company iPad project", and inside that link are all the things related to iPad - so the individual prototype links are all…

        • Automatically update Specifications as Prototype updates

          Use case:
          Developer asked me for a link for specs, and when I gave it to him he found out that screens differ from prototype. It was because I forgot to update both links.

          Proposed Solution:
          Enable automatic update whenever prototype is updated, via some kind of toggle button/ checkbox.

          My thoughts on problem:
          Since I cannot directly edit specs link, it makes sense to update it only when I edit current state of prototype - the prototype is current, valid state of app. Therefore it makes sense to give us some kind of automatization for this process.

          Thanks, you're…

          • Easily select/copy/paste/export comments

            As a designer I want to export all comments so that when I go into a review I can have them as notes to review with the client.

            I'll know this is done when I can view all comments by page and easily copy/paste/export them all at once. Think like a comment feed.

            • Control artboard order for shared prototype

              I really think it would be much better to control the artboard order in the artboard section of the interface. A published prototype is viewed in the order of how artboards are placed in the workspace and the order goes from left to right and then top to bottom. I think regardless of their position the order should be arrange from the panel just like other adobe programs

              • Shared links library publicly shared (or via link, DropBox alike)

                Use case is that I am starting to pile up lots of prototypes for each app my company has. It would be nice to have some sort of folder structure (for each app) where I would put respective prototypes in, and then be able to share it via email or link so that each member of my company can access links from one place.

                I guess drag & drop could be used to sort them inside or between folders, but having a function such as drop-down on each prototype is also a good idea (with options to "Add to project…

                • 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…

                  • 古い共有リンクの方を更新したい

                    間違えて[新規リンク]を押してしまったら最後。
                    共有済みのリンクを更新する術を見つけられませんでした、、
                    もう色んなところに共有しているためURLを変更させてもらうのが大変です。

                    どのリンクとして更新するか選べたら一番嬉しいです。

                      • Mockup for commons Devices in publish link

                        make mockups (like attachment) for commons Devices in publish link
                        and can choose the device when publish.
                        so when visitor visit the link they will see the design realistically.
                        i think that will be helpful for all :)

                        • Pinning a comment after it's been submitted

                          When writing a comment on a prototype it's really easy to hit "return" and submit the comment. After the fact I actually meant to pin the comment to the artboard. Presently I have to copy the comment, delete it, then paste into a new comment then click "Pin to artboard". It would be nice to have a button in edit mode or next to the edit button where I can pin the comment to the artboard after I've submitted it.

                          • 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?

                              • Allow bullets and styling when posting a comment on prototype link

                                Sometimes the feedback I receive contain bullet points, but when bullet points are copied and pasted into the comment section the styling drops out. It would be a helpful addition to the prototype feedback feature.

                                • 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.

                                  • Mark changes and comments on the publish preview

                                    I'm missing an option to mark and comment on the online (published) preview image. this feature can be very useful in the design and develop meeting when other members of the team comment on the mockup design.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Published Prototype "Profile" Photo

                                          In previous versions of XD, users had the option of adding a photo to a published prototype. In the most recent update, that feature was removed.

                                          It's a seemingly inconsequential feature, but when utilized properly, it can be the icing on the cake.

                                          In part, I utilize xd to create basic portfolio microsites, that I share with potential employers and clients, and I always put my headshot as the profile photo for the prototype. Everyone I've ever shared a link with has mentioned how unique they thought it was to have my headshot appear as the…
