  1. Export Self-Contained Demo

    It would be very helpful if it was possible to simply export a self-contained HTML demo from Adobe XD. This means it would export all artboards as HTML pages, with links available between them as defined in the Prototype mode into a single folder on my computer. No need for internet access, cloud access, or enterprise security accommodations... just an export to a local folder.

    From there, I can decide the best means to share it with users or other stakeholders, using whatever means my company allows.

    Please.

  2. Forward private prototype notifications to clients or stakeholders by email

    When I publish a prototype and share it with collegues or clients, they make comments on it. But as the owner of the prototype, only I get notifications when a new comment is made.

    I like the new feature that allows us to publish private prototypes and invite people. They might get notifications on Adobe Creative Cloud, but even if they create an Adobe account, not all of them would download Adobe Creative Cloud or check the account regularly. It would be great if they also get the notifications by e-mail, like they get the invitation.

    In case of any comment activity on a private link, reviewers are notified via email as well as creative cloud desktop app. This is already working today if you use the latest version of XD.

    Note that email notifications go to any reviewer for that comment thread where activity is happening. You also have the ability to @mention specific reviewers on the private link.

  3. Anonymous Log-In For Reviewers

    Would be very helpful not to require clients/stakeholders to create an Adobe account simply to review their comps. This could be sandboxed within private links to solve security concerns (ie., if they have the link, they can be assumed safe to allow comments from). Many clients won't do so, forcing to send a JPG or PDF via Dropbox instead, which defeats the purpose of having used a prototyping tool.

  4. Comment inbox in web prototype

    I would like to have an inbox with all the new comments listed and each one linking to the appropriate page/screen.

    Right now you have to go through each page to see if there is a comment or not. This is tedious if you're using XD as a client review tool.

  5. Comment on shared prototype without having to sign in

    People should be able to leave comments on a shared web prototype online without having to make an Adobe account.

    The stakeholders we want feedback from (clients, management, etc.) do not all use Adobe CC, so requiring even a free account adds an extra barrier before people can comment.

    With this month’s release of XD, your stakeholders can now sign in as a guest without a CC account and comment on your prototypes. Any prototype that already has commenting enabled should now see a “sign in as guest” option at the bottom of the comments panel if you’re not already signed in.

  6. Comments are hard to discover


    • Comments section is very valuable, but people have been missing that during handoffs and discussions. Its not clear that tapping the icon is will open up the comments panel. A first time learning curve.

    • Also replies are not easily discovered. It might make sense to collapse when we have a lot of comments/ replies in a thread, but to start with can we have everything opened up. Or a switch to full collapse/ open

    • It also not evident if new comments are placed. I do get a notification but would need to go to each screen to hunt for the…

  7. Export overview of all artboards: showing interaction flows, annotations, specifications

    I would like to share my full document to my team in order to communicate all specifications I added. This would help them giving a bit more context to the prototype and also be able to see all the different states of a pattern to build.
    Maybe save as a PDF file or also online?

    We’ve released the Design Specs feature in our November release as a Beta. You can now publish a Design Spec, which will show your developer an overview of the flow and allow them to introspect measurements and styles. We’re working on additional functionality based on this foundation, so I’m closing this feature as completed in order to get new suggestions as to what specific additions you’d like to see to the Design Specs feature.

    Please also note that we now have a new feature area called “Design Specs” in UserVoice, so please file new feature requests there! As a reminder, please file one suggestion per UserVoice submission so that we can better aggregate!

  8. Sharing Prototype in a closed network

    Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?

    This functionality is now available for a limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise. While offline publication is available, current and future sharing and collaboration features will be restricted. The full product functionality and experience in XD is available only when XD uses Creative Cloud services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Adobe account team for more information!

  9. Commenting and making annotations in design OR on shared prototype online

    it's pretty self-explanatory.. you can give feedback by commenting and making annotations on the prototype, if someone posts something you get an email with a summarium of all the feedback or you get notified via creative cloud.. there could be settings where you want to be notified and if instantly or like 1 hour later!

    this is valuable to me because it makes the communication easier, which otherwise would lead to tons of emails going back and forth.

    With our November release, you can now add comments to shared prototypes! Comments are contextual to the artboard. Please check it out and let us know what you think. Feature improvements should be suggested as new ideas in UserVoice.

    Thanks!

  10. Show all available screens to navigate in shared prototype (map / overview of all artboards)

    I would like for there to be a way to display all available screens in the prototype. Currently the web view is good for presenting but not good for users who are not clear on what the flow is. Providing a way to jump around these screens would be incredibly helpful.

  11. Display the "Update link" button as a primary action

    Version : 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.2.61

    Click the share button in the top right corner and select "Share again".

    The "Update link" and "New link" buttons look exactly the same. Several times I have come to press the wrong button. In 100% of the cases, I want to update the existing link. I would therefore argue that it makes sense to emphasize this as a primary action.

  12. Reorder artboards or hide navigation buttons in shared prototype

    When sharing with a less tech-savvy client, they see the arrows and automatically go to click through like a PDF reader. It would be good to have a way to either change the order of the pages for that view (you can't always guarantee that the order the artboards are built in will be the order they appear in the user journey) or the ability to hide them in the share settings.

    hide/turn off "slide" feature on prototype

  13. Allow for line break when making a comment on the web prototype

    Line break in comments

    Ideally 'shift' + 'enter' would be the shortut key for that line break

  14. Swap locations of "update link" and "create new link"

    Share link Again button placement feels like it should switch place with Update link..

    BECAUSE:
    I usually send out links to the team/clients, and when I want to update the Link (Share Again) then right after clicking the buttons change to "Update Link" or "Create New Link" The one beneath the mouse cursor is Create New, and that really is a mess since its really easy to missclick that button. I generally always just want to Update my prototype since the link is already out there.. Not have a chance to missclick the New link and have to send a…

  15. Consumers of shared prototypes tend to use arrows instead of using interactions

    I have been using XD a lot and have been publishing prototypes for developers and stakeholders.

    I have found that more often than not they are using the bottom page scroll more than using the clickable links inside the prototype.

    This is causing confusion when the workflow isn't linear as they are view the prototype as a slideshow instead of an interactive prototype.

  16. Full screen web prototype view on mobile browser (hide browser chrome)

    after i've shared a prototype URL then i view it on my phone, is there a way to disable browser UI when viewing the prototype on mobile device? can you tuck away the browser chrome? it is a bit fussy and annoying trying to tap through a native app experience when i keep having to scroll around to get rid of the browser chrome. it feels clunky.

    thanks so much! apologies if this is a duplicate, but i can't find similar request anywhere.

    Hi All,

    If the browser chromes are appearing over your artboard in the mobile browsers, then you can scroll up to dismiss the browser chromes.
    Please try it and let us know your feedback.

  17. Embeddable Prototypes

    It'd be amazing to be able to embed a shared prototype so clients, users can interact with it.

  18. Back, foreward and home buttons when viewing online shared prototype (outside of the design itself)

    Back, forward and home buttons in online share modus, outside of the design area.

  19. Web Preview mode isn't 1:1 resolution / scale

    The shared preview mode (link) is not 1:1 size matching the artboard resolution (f.e. like invision), but in smaller size and cannot be adjusted, so client cannot see the original scale and details of larger (long) websites... Maybe it's not a bug, but a missing feature, but I would not mind if you just copy invision in this:))

  20. Remove prototype border

    Is there a way to get rid of that default annoying grey border in shared prototypes? What's the purpose? It doesn't appear when viewed on laptop, why it's showing on mobile?

    I have a black background design of a mobile app. When viewed on a mobile phone it really impacts the overall experience and generates confusion (is it intentional?).
