  1. Deselect Home Artboard

    Need the ability to 'deselect' the home artboard.

    Issue: If I create a prototype with links to the home artboard I can share everything linked to home.

    If I then need to remove all connectors so none of the pages were linked, but I still want to publish all artboards, it won't allow me to do it. Only the home artboard is selected.

    Basically, once you have physically selected the home artboard by clicking the home icon (rather than having XD do it by default when you create your first board) then you're done! Only one screen can be published…

  2. Keyboard prtotype shortcut triggers

    An extra feature for the keyboard triggers to be able to facilitate shortcut mode as well.

    The feature would be able to set up 2-3 buttons as a trigger to show a new overlay or artboard. (example: Command+K, Command+Space bar or Command+Shift+E).

  3. Scrolling to target art-board when prototyping

    When in Prototype Mode, sometimes elements are very far away on canvas.

    Screen should scroll when trying to connect to Prototype Target.

  4. Multiple interactions on a single artboard

    We need to add multiple ways of moving from one screen to another. Currently the only way to do this is to add the interactions to various elements on the artboard, which makes it difficult to find where those interactions are.

    For example, to move from artboard A to artboard B, a user could press Home, Down or say "Artboard A". I can only add one of these interactions to the artboard as a whole at the moment.

  5. Copy and Paste artboards to new document should retain prototype wires

    Consolidation, iteration, etc would be improved by allowing wires to be copied with artboards as they are moved between documents.

  6. Multiple Interactions on a Single Element

    Allow for multiple interactions on a single elements. Aka, be able to drag multiple wires from a single object.

    Use case 1: When designing a carousel, a user should be able to swipe on an object left or right and navigate to the next or previous slide.

    Use case 2: When designing an app with similar interactions to Bumble or Tinder, the test subject should be allowed multiple interactions on the same object. Swipe up, down, left, or right.

    We introduced the ability to add multiple interactions on a single element in the most recent version of XD. You can select an object and select the + button on the wire or in the prototype mode property inspector to add an interaction!

  7. Trigger with PC keyboard

    I would like to use a PC keyboard as a trigger to make prototypes of products using hardware switches.

    By using USB devices you can use various switch parts.

  8. More supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes

    Please provide more supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes. I think that this is a fantastic feature.

  9. Prototype 'Transition Options' in property inspector instead of in a popup

    The current UI for transitions is clunky and flows awkwardly. Every time I try to link to something lower on the page, the pop-up box appears below the 'fold'/screen and I have to move the artboard into view and re-click on the 'from' element to get the pop-up to appear. You've already trained the users to use the side-panel (right) to change elements in the design view, I think it makes sense to place the transitions in the same spot. It would greatly simplify the flow, as well as returning to edit transitions.

  10. Scene based Transition

    Feature request.

    Using this feature user can create the artboard based animation very easily. XD has to create a new scene based frame to select the artboard to animate.


    1. Create a scene based frame.

    2. Drag and drop the artboard to animate in frame

    3. Draw the object in the artboard

    4. Same objects would display in other artboards drag and drop in the frame

    5. Move the objects in the frame. (same would refresh in artboards)

    6. Automatically animate the objects (Shape, position, color etc...)

  11. Provide Fixed Position on Prototype mode

    It make more sense if Fixed Position on Prototype mode instead of Design which designer tend to arrange the "move" and flow there

  12. Overlay States

    I would like the ability to move an overlay through it's own transitions without impacting the underlying area.

    For example, let's say you have a button that says Help.
    Click Help
    Overlay slides in with message box, asks a question.
    User clicks Yes. Msgbox transitions to a new box, but underlying background (not part of the transition) remains.

    I have a problem like this where I have a drawer a user can expand over the contents to activate slides and switches. Problem is, once you start trying to use that toolbox, the background is lost.

    Overlays seem to only be…

    We introduced the concept of component states, which can be used with overlays to enable the type of interaction you’re looking for. Definitely check it out on letsxd.com, and please feel free to file a separate ticket if you still need overlay states with the new functionality.

  13. Advanced Overlay Option (background Treatment)


    • I would like to have the option of selecting how the background behaves when an overlay is being presented. this is important as I feel currently I'm restricted for the most part to 'Dissolve Transition' as it is weird showing the background sliding when included in the overlay artboard itself


    • Additionally, combined with timed transitions, one can showcase notifications
      .


    • Lastly, the ability to select the option of whether the overlay is pinned on Viewport (current implementation) or Artboard (for dropdowns beyond screen cut-off)

  14. Fullscreen Prototype


    1. Full screen should go full screen. InVision App allows a full-screen takeover when viewing a prototype. Why does the content go into a small rectangle centered in the browser with Adobe product notes in the corners? I am designing full screen, the prototype should follow that format. There is no need to see things like the date and time or "Made with Adobe XD." My client doesn't care, they are not designers. The client is my focus.


    2. Upon clicking the "Fullscreen" button in the top corner, the screen still has a black background bordering the content. It should snap to…

  16. Paste Multiple interactions at once

    With the latest update of adobe XD you can copy & paste the interaction from one element to another but considering we usually have same elements across multiple screens with minor variations like active & hover states etc ( for example a bottom navigation bar in mobile app) it is still a tedious task to copy & paste interaction across all those multiple screen so i suggest that we should be able to select multiple elements ( say 4 buttons at navigation bar on screen 1 ) and copy interaction, then select the 4 items on screen 2 and paste…

  17. Add multiple hotspots in same object

    Tappable carousel images are a common feature in mobile apps. These require the ability to swipe left, swipe right, and tap the same object. Please add this facility while introducing advanced interaction features in XD. Having a single interaction per object is a great deterrent in real-world user testing.

  18. Disable hotspots for prototypes

    For usability tests, I want to disable/hide the hotspots when you click. The hotspots make the tests too easy for the user.

    The main reason I changed to Adobe XD is that I can do everything with just one tool. Now I have to use InVision/Marvel again for the usability tests because I can't disable the hotspots.

  19. Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch.

    Adobe Xd needs widgets libraries to create a new menu from scratch, In this way helps us to create an screen easily doing drag and drop.

    We’ve been working with a variety of partners to provide more robust UI kits for you to use, including menu elements. Apple, Google, and Microsoft have all provided a number of different UI kits with sticker sheet elements to get you started.

    Note that you can also create new artboards by simply switching to the artboard tool and clicking.

    Please do feel free to file a new story if you’d like to see additional features.

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  20. Define different interactions for the same element

    Need to have a active buttons, when a press the button and hold, have a action.
    Example: I have a button when i press, i go to other page, but if I hold button, it's change a color.
