  1. Invite to folder for collaboration (on all contained files)

    We have the collaborate on a single file feature added - now we need some tools to manage large groups of prototypes across a team. One simple way to do this is the allow inviting others to collaborate on all prototypes in a folder rather than needing to invite a group of people to each individual file.

    I would expect this to be recursive down into each subfolder, if any are present.

    Even more ideal might be to allow inviting people at the cloud documents level (ideally for teams who cross collaborate on multiple prototypes)

  2. Enterprise wide sharing (entire org)

    A way to set a link (prototype and/or design specs) as "share within my organization", so anyone with the link and with an email within my enterprise domain can access the link.

  3. Choosing prototype/specs view mode when publishing for Development

    Please add an ability to set default view mode when sharing project on the web for Development, so that it would open by default as prototype or as specs.
    It's great that now we can switch between those modes, but it might be not clear for developer who got used to work with specs that now he has to perform some additional action to be able to see specs once he is in prototype mode.
    Also controls for switching between modes should be more prominent.

  4. Fullscreen mode should ignore the viewport

    When sharing on the web, it'd be nice if fullscreen mode ignored the viewport and just extended the full length of the viewer's browser. As it is, it's a bit funky.

    Example: https://cl.ly/8152b5159922

  5. Invite option for public prototypes

    With private protoypes I can invite people by email address, so that I can then mention them in the comments using the @ symbol, even if they havent commented before.

    I would like to have the same functionality for public prototypes, where this is currently not possible and I have to wait until they leave a comment on their own, in order to get their attention using mentions.

  6. Show last updated time in share window

    This is a small cosmetic suggestion. I find myself posting prototypes for review and new ideas come up so I edit and "Update" the shared link. I keep hitting update, but sometimes I feel like I just hit it! lol I know its a silly one but it would be SUPER NICE if it shows you a "last updated 30 sec ago..." or something like that. This way instead of spending time hitting update multiple times I can focus more on design. Hope others agree and we can make this happen. I know this is a small request, but I…

  7. Compare changes/difference between XD Files

    With a lot of programs, MS Word specifically, you are able to see the changes in a file.

    With XD, you can have 100 artboards, and are looking to send the developer just the new designs of just one or two boards. You want to send the whole XD file, because of how it connects, but you want to highlight what's different.

    I suppose the simple way would be to create some shape beside the new artboards, but that's difficult if you have anything more than just a couple, so being able to see the difference quickly and easily would…

  8. Faster Update Links Option

    The update/create prototype and design specs buttons work great however, the usage of them is tedious. Allowing the user to click one button to update all generated links for a document using only a single button would speed up prototype iterations significantly. I propose you include an "Update Links" button in the main UI that would update any created link automatically (once those links have been generated.

  9. 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.

  10. Creative Cloud file sync should be faster

    Faster syncing of pc/mac work in xd to mobilr

    Takes way too long for existing and new xd files to show up in creative cloud to see on iOS.

  11. Decrease loading time while clicking through prototype

    While clicking through prototypes via de share link, it takes a lot of time for it to load pages. This is simply a no-go whilst presenting a prototype to customers.

    Because every screen is loaded individually, when clicking on a button it takes several seconds to only load a "rollover". This a bit awkward when sitting around the table with clients who expect a clickable website.

    Because online sharing is the only way to keep it clickable I have now no choice but to use Sketch instead.

    Thinking out loud, I would suggest doing the following:
    - improving the server …

  12. save for web feature like photoshop for exporting assets

    When I export assets from xd, it generally takes more space. And I can't directly import files from xd to photoshop, so first I have to import into illustrator and then to photoshop and then I can use save for web to optimize my assets.
    So please incorporate a feature so that I can directly export assets from xd with compression.

  13. Clone comments from previous prototype to new link

    Ask the user if s/he wants to clone comments on the old prototype link before publishing a new one.

    However, it would be great if the designer can add/review comments from XD desktop application while designing instead of opening the URL each time s/he wants to write/read a comment.

  14. Record Preview into mp4 including the voice trigger and action sound

    When the user wants to record the prototype that has voice trigger and voice action speech playback, when saving to mp4 video, it will also include the voice or the speech on the video.

  15. Keep me logged in for a while. - Shared prototype with password

    Currently, if we reload shared prototypes with password, we need to type password everytime.
    It's inconvenient, so kindly keep session at least 30 mins.

    Let me tell you my story.
    A few days ago, I did a realtime design update. I shared a prototype to my colleagues and partners, then asked them to give me feedback comments on the prototype. They discussed on comments and I reflected the ideas simultaneously.

    Then I found it very inconvenient to enter password everytime.

  16. Shared links lack the ability to copy text

    Once a prototype is published and shared the text lacks the ability to be copied. This makes working with a remote team more difficult. It would be very helpful for developers to copy and paste the text to avoid the time and human errors of re-typing. Please add this function to the published prototype links.

  17. Share to interactive video

  19. Dark background in shared prototype

    When sharing on the web, if we have artboards with white backgrounds, there is no visual separation between artboard and background. I suggest making the option for making the background dark, or implementind device frames.

  20. Move Pin when layout changes

    When the layout changes, the pinned comments don't move accordingly. We ran into this today and it's a critical issue because we use Adobe XD as the main source of truth. That comment contains technical requirements for our devs like default ordering. The same happens in forms, where I use comments to specify input masks, validation rules and other things. Everytime I change something on the form, I have to make sure I update all the comments. Uncool!

    Usually I will adjust the pins by hand, but in this instance I didn't create the comment so I couldn't move the…
