  1. Revert to previous 'Share' UI

    The previous 'Share' UI was fast, simple, and easy to use.

    This new UI is confusing, unnecessary, and wasteful. Was it designed by the same people who created the new AdobeCC UI????

    A) The new 'Share' Tab is useless. I can already see what I'm sharing on either of the other tabs - having a 3rd tab is completely asinine unless there is some helpful functionality to this screen/view.

    B) The only functionality I have in this state is 'zoom' - a state I cannot exit once I've clicked on the 'zoom' tool. AND the keyboard/mouse shortcut I actually use…

  2. Remove a user from all shared prototypes and design specs

    When someone needs to be removed from all mockups its a long and painful process. Can we have something that allows us to "cut someone off" without having to find out which mockups they have access to and then go into each mockup one at a time to remove them. Thanks!

  3. Remove Share in keyboard shortcut when tabbing between Design, Prototype, Share

    Love the new update with states, versioning and co-editing!!! Awesome!!!

    Though there's one thing in the new update that is quite annoying. When working I always tab between between Design and Prototype mode using Ctrl + tab. The new update expects me to Design then prototype and then share. I feel the share screen gets in the way when toggling between design and prototype.

    For me my workflow is:
    Design -> Prototype -> Design -> Prototype -> Design -> Prototype (and then Share after many iterations)

    The new change "forces" me to go to the Share screen after each prototype…

  4. Expand the comment input field

    It would be great if the input field could expand if you are adding a long comment, as right now it can be very hard to edit the box when it is over a certain length.

    It would also be great to add a bit more of a margin between the input field and the @ button as I am forever hitting the @ button by accident.

  5. Link to specific pages/artboards in XD document

    Because we are using the XD file as a Source of Truth for the product team (Zeplin for the developers). Each feature is spelled out in a ticket, and I would like to link to the page referred to thereof. It's cumbersome for everyone to have to navigate to it for each ticket. This is a dense dashboard product.

  6. Scroll shared prototype with keyboard


    1. Description
      When viewing a prototype, a user can scroll between views using the left and right keyboard arrow keys but cannot scroll up or down on the current prototype with the keyboard. Some viewers have been unable to scroll with their mouse. Without a visible scrollbar they have been left only seeing what's above the fold line.

    On Mac I've discovered that pressing fn+arrow up/down will sort of page you down, but it's not smooth and not intuitive. Simply using arrow keys as you would using a browser (or something close) would be ideal.

  7. Ensure Design Specs and Prototypes look significantly different

    Share for Review & Share for Development are so similar in terms of interface and it's so confusing because I end up commenting on the wrong one every time since they look too much the same.

    It would be better if for e.g. the Developer's one has a different Background etc...

    And please, although there is already a request for it, add the get/send notifications for updates

  8. Share for Review Links: Set All Screen Comments off by default

    I'm regularly sending review links to non-designers/older clients and I don't want to confuse them.

    I'd like to have the option to set "All Screen Comments" off by default.

  9. Show the design scale of a design

    It could be great to have an overview of the design scale inside the design review or developer review when we work across team. Some device are not on Retina Display and developers don't know if the scale is great.

  11. Add Setting to Control Comments/Pins Visibility On First Load

    Please add a setting to control whether or not the comments/pins are showing on first load of the page. I would like my clients to be able to see the design and get an accurate first impression, without seeing the pins cluttering it. I would rather give them a real first impression than have their first action be to hit the comments button to hide the pins. I'm asking for a setting to control it because I see that others have found value in having the comments show by default. I chatted with a member of your support team and…

  12. Unresolve comments if there are new replies

    Name it not "close", but "resolved" (a checkbox with checkmark/or no checkmark („resolved“/„unresolved“). AND it automatically will marked as „unresolved“ if the reviewer adds an new answer.
    The pin should be convert from number to checkmark if the comment is marked as resolved.

    With this I can use the comments as a list of tasks which I can work off step by step.
    If I finish a task I mark is at resolved. The reviewer get an E-Mail (at the end of day all resolved tasks collected to one E-Mail) and he can now review this and do an answer…

  13. 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…

  14. Support native anchors

    When shared on the web, links do not support browser features like:
    - Open in new tab
    - Mousewheel click to open in new tab
    - Copy link address
    - etc

    Links in general should support browser features you would expect to work on links.

  15. Expand "Show Hot Spots" to indicate any Keys & Gamepad triggers

    When I share a link of a prototype and have the option "Show Hotspot Hints" enabled, it shows clickable areas. It would be great if there could also be an option to display information on available Key & Gamepad triggers.

    Building out a prototype that is interactive currently has it's short comings but it's great to see Adobe listening to XD users and expanding the prototyping capabilities. Because there currently isn't a way to show On-Hover type of interactions, I have to fake it by creating a keyboard trigger that I press at the same moment I move my mouse…

  16. Link available for sharing while updating or creating new link

    It takes a long time to either create a new link for development or update an existing link, and I find myself waiting around often. I also often click "update" without copying the link first, then it's unavailable while the link is being updated, and I have to wait. I'd love to be able to share the link before it's updated since developers will only access well after it's finished updating/creating anyway. Three suggestions:


    1. When updating an existing link, let the existing link be available to copy, since the URL won't change.


    2. Or, have a "cancel" button so I can…

  17. Flow view share link

    Currently the URL for a shared link is the same between GRID view and FLOW view. Is it possible to have a separate link for these. Eg. https://xd.adobe.com/view/unique-id/grid and https://xd.adobe.com/view/unique-id/flow ?

  19. Confusing Copy interface

    Sharing mode: Share for review

    I still find the interaction with the comments confusing. Specifically resolving and responding.
    As you can see, those words are very similar in french which had cause me to click the wrong button (resolve instead of respond) more than twice.

    This action (unfortunately) cannot be undone with Ctrl Z.
    :'(
