  1. 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 ?

  2. Feature "Center screen & hide overflow" - Public prototype

    There is a great feature in platform 'Marvel' to publish website prototypes, an option to select: "Center screen & hide overflow - Crops images on either side and keeps them centered in view". This would be great for solving the problems of various browser resolutions.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Share groups of shared prototypes

    After you Publish links they will appear in your personal "Published" section- and right now there is only possible to do two actions: Copy Link or Permanently Delete.

    Is there a possibility to make a feature that will enable to " Share " or " Share all" these published links so they will appear in the " Shared With You " section of other members? (or another section just a suggestion).

    If you have a big project and already have 100+ links there is really challenging to find, manage them or review them. Even If you are using JIRA or…

  9. Remove mobile preview's dependency on Creative Cloud

    Objective

    XD's mobile preview is less than ideal for larger organizations, due to the requirement that files must exist in Creative Cloud before the mobile app can access them. This causes friction where organizations have established file storage restrictions in services other than Creative Cloud (i.e. Google Drive, Box, etc.).

    Business Case for Adobe

    Rather than focusing on a tethered experience for Windows (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17453770-tethered-usb-mobile-device-preview-on-windows), I'd rather a better untethered experience that is platform agnostic, thus benefitting more users (at larger organizations) with less code.

    Notes/Thoughts

    The existing prototype publishing functionality currently uploads files to Adobe's servers and gives…

  10. White Label shared previews

    It would be 'nice' to have one company offer a way to present prototypes, etc without a "Made with .." credit.

    As paying customers (Creative Cloud) it would be great to have my business logo and name on all outwardly facing Preview material.

  11. Keyboard shortcut for updating shared prototype

    Right now to update the prototype you've shared, you have to (1) click the share icon, (2) click "Share Again," and (3) click "Update Link." This is such a frequent action (at least until we can do phone mirroring, that it'd be convenient to do it in one keystroke.

  12. Comments should allow mentioning users from your team and guests

    At the moment, the mentioning functionality becomes populated with users only after they have posted a comment (refer to screenshots), even when the link is viewed by users within the same team (account type - wise).

    However, if we delete an user's comments, mentioning doesn't reflect that (still shows that user in the list), so we are currently doing that to simulate the feature.

    It would be very helpful if there was this flexibility in working collaboratively with XD, as my team is trying to evangelise using this product to management over other competitors.

    Moreover, mentioning is only available for…

  13. Download comments from a prototype

    Sharing comment so that the comments I made, can be exported to a different user or can be downloaded.

    As a teacher I'm sitting and develop a test for a final exam.
    I have used "XD sharing and develop" to associate comments.

    It seems to be excellent, and we have to test it now, before ending the school.

    My problem is that this task is created, with my Adobe ID and will therefore only exist as long as I am affiliated.
    My colleagues would like to be able to continue working with the exam even if I am no longer…

  14. Share prototype and specs to groups of people

    I'm currently experiencing some trouble to share my prototypes and specs to multiple stakeholders. Now i have to add them one by one.

    A feature to share it with a group of people, which I can manage separately, would be nice.

    F.ex.
    - share the specs with the 'R&D team' group
    - share the prototype with the 'R&D team' group and the 'Product team' group.

    This way, I won't forget anyone and it will speed up sharing a lot in my use case.

  15. Enable "preserve scroll position" with browser scroll

    Features like preserve scroll position and fixed elements only work with the viewport set on the artboards in XD at the moment, and not any scrolling added by the prototype viewer in the browser. I would like it to be activated also when scrolling is added by the prototype viewer in the browser.

    Please see this prototype for the problem: https://xd.adobe.com/view/267a66a3-c9fa-45f6-6997-0aa455e7b854-504b/?fullscreen&hints=off

  16. Allow bullets and styling in comment in shared prototype

    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.

  17. Copy comments from one prototype to another

    When I want to post multiple versions of the same prototype online (v1, v2, etc. with incremental changes made between versions), and I have notated the prototype screens with comments/instructions for developers about user flow and requirements and actions... it would be super helpful to be able to transfer or copy my comments (and any client comments) from one prototype to the other. Otherwise, I have to overwrite existing prototypes to keep all my comments intact... which means I can't keep older versions of these screens posted online for reference or comparison, and I have to manually add comments/annotation to…

  18. Prototype Footnotes

    It would be nice if the creator (sharer) of the prototype could add footnotes to the shared prototype, separate from the comments.

    eg. if there is a conditional object. this hypothetical object on the page should only be there when the user has a message, I'd like to be able to add a footnote to inform the shareholders on this condition. Footnotes would be used for these function-specific notes, and comments would be used for feedback and discussion.

  19. Arrow navigation on the online shared prototype

    I created a link, but when I was presenting, I realized that exported version can't be navigated using keyboard-arrows.

    There was some negative feedback received when we removed the navigation arrows from prototypes, so, this change was reverted and other solutions are being considered.

  20. Tag comments as !Important

    Add a button or some way to allow the commenter or Owner to mark comments as "Important". This would visually change the comment itself as well as the pin, if it's pinned. The button or status could also be clicked again/removed to allow the comment to go back to normal status and not Important.

    Attached is a quick example of what could be done, to allow the eyes to quickly see what's been marked priority over other comments.
