  1. Speech Playback available for prototypes

    When sharing prototypes people are not able to preview speech playback and voice interactivity unless they have an XD account.

    I have been told that this was designed like this for security reasons. Not sure what the security reason is?!

    Being able to share voice is a huge reason I started using XD for prototyping.

    Thanks for your question! Here’s the info from Mark Webster: Yep, we require a login for security reasons. As you noted, you don’t need to be a customer, you can use a free account, but we need to have some sort of authorized user making a request of the voice service.

  2. Transitions & Animations

    I just wanted to suggest that XD should provide transitions and animations just like the PROTOPIE does. There are few things that cannot be done in XD easily this is where protopie come in. Kindly provide features like PROTOPIE ! Thanks!!

    Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, this is too vague of a suggestion. Can you give us examples of individual features you’re missing from ProtoPie that you’d like to see in XD? If you file them here as individual requests (one ticket per request), it’ll be easier for us to merge with other similar requests. Thanks!

  3. XD App loading screen Hangs / Freeze Fix

    I have found a Bug when using special characters and want to preview it on the App.

    My XD App kept on crashing during loading screen of an artboard or file.
    I have found the problem.
    It was when I was using special characters such as "Ⓒ" even with the font-type Roboto .. that it crashes.

    When removing this the artboard loaded normally

  4. Bring back copy pasting interactive links

    Yo bring back copy pasting interaction links. Links inside of symbols, or copy pasting from one doc to another. Just bring those m-f back. This new update messed that up.

  5. Fix position when Scrolling- Shifted to Prototype mode

    In your XD tutorial, the part 7, The "Fix position when scrolling" is not anymore in the Design mode. But it is shifted to the prototype mode. Please change this in the tutorial as it is very confusing who is learning as he/she can't find that option in the Design mode.

  7. Layers for overlays

    If you used Layers to position the overlays, the positioning of elements would be MUCH easier and utilize the same resolution. Currently, the overlays have a difficult time with font resolution. Almost like it is using a low-res jpg/png/gif.

    When using the Layer method, the connection would display the layer is the proper position.

  8. Replace Artboard Action

    I've had this idea for prototypes and things and thought of the switches. But when you leave that artboard and go back it's back to where it originally was. So what if there was an action for replacing an artboard so that once something links to that artboard it'll go the the artboard that replaced it.

  9. Allow transitions to be two decimals

    Prototype transitions are limited to 0.1 second intervals when they should be able to be 2 decimal places like 0.15 seconds. This allows for more flexibility, especially for short, quick animations

    Very annoying that the Preview window is not at 100%.

  11. Sometimes we can select the animation type sometimes it appears greyed out

    It's not even about artboards being the same size. It works with different size artboards also. Why it doesn't work sometimes seems arbitrary

  13. Embed an XD prototype within another prototype

    It would be great to insert an extra prototype into an Xd file, similar to an iframe in html. Just like the overlay, but in a persistent manner. Changes could be applied when the external file is re-saved.

  14. Minimize text box and add "read more"

    I'm looking for a easy way to create a expandable text box with the click of a button (e.g read more)

    This is often seen in app stores and in news articles that that are behind a pay wall.
    With the text box minimized you should be able the see the content below (screenshots etc) but when you expand the content should be moved further down. Maybe this is already possible but I can't find the feature either in the software or in a tutorial. Of course I can build this my own with animations, but shouldn't there be a…

  18. Common Interactions in digital products

    Simple interactions which are commonplace in almost all apps / digital products yet cannot be communicated through current design tools.
    Here’s a brief list:

    Hovering a button
    Focusing an input
    Checking a checkbox
    Tabbed content
    Scroll areas
    Tab index for focused states
    Keyboard shortcuts

    Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you have individual suggestions separated out into different tickets. The good news is most of these are already in the system and are waiting for your upvote. For instance:

  19. Supported spanish on Voice-Based Prototypes

    Please provide spanish supported on voice based prototypes.

  20. Overrides management

    1.1. Right now, it is hard to manage overrides. Please can we have it on the right hand menu when selecting a symbol so we can override from there?
    1.2. Also Can we have available other symbols of the same family with the same dimensions? (to swap easily between different state buttons for example as shown)
    1.3. Last but not least it would be great if by the same token there was an easier way to replace images within a symbol other than drag&dropping from an outside folder, which is a bit WTF
    2. As of now it takes too…
