  1. Full screen mode in Preview & links

    I created an artboard of 1920 width. but when i preview it shows a black background. Same goes for when I share it in web. But instead there is white background.
    It will be great to eliminate the background. Because it is impacting design decisions. also clients dont understand the concept & ask for recreation.

  2. Deep link to overlay in shared prototype

    Web review URLs for active overlays. For example, you have a screen with an overlay of an dialog box and wanted to link directly to it.

  3. Jump to artboard by number in shared prototype

    after generating a link for the client to see, sometimes there are 100 screens in the link. the client wants to discuss a specific screen which could be no. 56. It takes a lot of time to navigate to that screen. Pressing the right arrow 56 times!!!

    I’m keeping this one open, but a quick way for your client to share exactly what screen they want to talk about is to send you the URL they have in their browser when they’re looking at the prototype. Because we have deep linking, the URL will bring you right to that artboard.

  4. Share with everyone in my org

    This is one of the top requests from my extended team. I've added all the developers, product managers, and other stakeholders as users in our CC team. When we share a prototype for review, we need the option to make it available to all users in the team. It could just show up in the shared with you section on their files view.

    This way we can stop having to re-send out the links constantly to people or fail to maintain a spreadsheet of shared links. We can just tell them to log in and it would be there.

    Please…

  5. Bypass cloud prototype link password when linking from the source file

    Password protected prototype shares are great, but is it fair to assume that the owner of the source file can get straight in when they open it from the source file in XD - I think so, given that they can change the password. It's a little annoying having to input it every time. Likewise from notifications in the desktop app - but clearly that is a little different as you're not in the source file.

  6. User-rights management in online prototype (permissions)

    Users should have different statuses like admin, able to leave comments, just watch, disallow access to specific areas of the prototype.


    • sometimes users have to be able to look over an prototype but not to comment


    • some users might watch specific parts of a prototype but shell not see others

  7. Ability to show elements "floating center" or "floating bottom"

    We are testing XD as a replacement for visually spec'ing on the web. It would be great if we could specify screen positions for elements that either are floating center vertically within a column, floating 30% above the bottom of a column, 30px from the bottom of a column, etc. Essentially, it would be helpful to be able to communicate position as a container percentage, as well as a way to communicate that this element's positioning is relative to the top, middle, or bottom of an element.

    Thanks for your feedback! We currently don’t reference to center and bottom, but we do use a fixed viewport. This means that your object can be 30px off the bottom of the viewport and will stay there if the fixed element selection is turned on. Similarly, if you position your object at the center of your viewport, it’ll stay there if the position is set. While the way you think of it is different than your developer, it should at least look the same.

  8. Associate comments with versions of the prototype

    At the moment I realise a prototype, everyone comments on it and if I update the prototype the comments are lost.

    I think it would be really cool if comments were maintained if i republish a prototype.
    Maybe the comments could be labelled with a page release version number or date so i can hid them - but I don't want to lose the comments, i want the person who left the comment to be able to marked the problem they highlighted as solved.

  9. Notifications on comments to appear on online prototypes

    Currently when someone comments on a online prototype i get a notification through my create cloud. When i click on it it opens in a new window. But if a get multiple notifications I have to open up a new window, or search the screens for the comment.

    Could we include a notifications dropdown in the online prototype to show new notifications. This would make the online prototypes friendlier to use, more efficient (especially when collaborating).

  10. Ability to update OpenGraph data (link preview) to shared prototypes

    The default link text that appears when I share a prototype doesn't look very professional, nor is it very useful for people who see multiple of these in a day.

    My suggestion is that you give us a place to put "About" data for the file, and that this is used as the OpenGraph text for link previewing in applications like Slack, Skype, etc.

    I'm attaching a photo of what my current link share looks like, and what I propose could happen with some sort of "Info" text.

  11. Larger non-fullscreen view

    When I run a user test, I like to use the generated link. During a user test, it is often useful to use the little home button at the bottom of the page. In fullscreen view, this button is unavailable. When not in fullscreen view, the artboard is represented quite small compared tt the browser window, making features less distinct. Could you either:


    1. Add the home button to the fullscreen view or

    2. Make the area for displaying the artboard in the non-fullscreen view, larger

  12. 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.

  13. Add frame line on fullscreen view showing the limits of the screen when previewing a prototype locally

    When sharing a design with multiple sizes and a black background it becomes impossible to see the edges of the screen. Adding a 1px #555 line would be enough to improve the preview experience by allowing the user to see the edges of say a small mobile screen on fullscreen.

  14. Remove annoying overlay on top of the screen

    Please remove this annoying overlay (please see the screenshot). It covers the art board and influences first impression.

    If this is needed, please add it to loading screen before loading the prototype. Something like Invisionapp has for example.

  15. Loading indication

    When viewing on a mobile in browser, you forgot to design the 'Loading' indication text. It sits there top left 'tucked' up in the corner.

  16. OPTION to keep share links after filename is changed/ save as in XD

    Apparently some people want to automatically delete the already created links each time they save their file as a new one.

    But this is not the case for everyone!

    I need to keep my link history even if I saves as a new file.
    (I don't get how people can not just create new links)

    This was a very important good point of XD for my team, clients and I, and now I have to explain to everyone that I will have to share a new link, or simply keep the same file even if I have big change on…

  17. Smooth Animations for Shared Prototypes

    The animation of prototype that is smooth while open in XD is extremely choppy and not reflecting the work. This drastically impacts the sharing and commenting for design review or even showcasing.

    The prototypes shared need to reflect the same level of quality as what is built and reviewed on someones desktop. At the very least, if there is a quality issue on the shared version, it should be surfaced up to the user in some way.

  18. Allow Prototype Link selection from all owned assets

    I created a prototype link from a file that was later deleted. The link was shared with a client, and I have been asked to update the link. Because the file no longer exists, I cannot update the link. It would be nice to be able choose an already existing link in my assets when I'm working from a new file.

  19. If I create a link for one of the process and then have to create a link of sharing for the other flow then the previous link disappears.

    If I create a link for one of the process and then have to create a link of sharing for the other flow then the previous link disappears. The new link not created but it gets updated. Hence all the comments on the previous link/ flow are lost!!!

    Thanks for your feedback. You can actually update the previous link by selecting it from the drop-down in Share Mode, and then updating that link. Alternatively, you can update a link with any subset of your document you want to, but any artboards that are not in that flow would have their comments lost. Can you explain what you’re looking for that is outside of this workflow?

  20. Resolve button that only appears on hover causes accidental clicks

    It has happened before that I was just trying to click on a comment to jump to its associated page and accidentally hit the Resolve button because it only appears on hover. That area is prime clicking space because it appears empty. To subtly slip in a button right before you click down seems pretty dangerous. Especially for an action that does not have any easy to find way to undo itself.
