    • Animate individual elements separately (custom animation transitions / microinteractions)

      Support for simple animation.
      Example: Show/hide a slide or push menu

      This would enhance a demo and engage prospects that are familar with common application patterns.

      • Scrollable Area (not scrolling whole artboard)

        Define a scrollable area within an artboard

        This provides real-world app use cases, such as a table, slideshow, or iOS dropdown lists.

        • Sticky (Fixed) elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

          Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

            • Global Style/Color Edits

              Provide the ability to change multiple objects/elements within a document and/or across artboards.

              Example: Ability to increase font size within a button across all artboards (without multi-select)
              This is similar to increasing font size within a repeatable grid—all increase.

              Another example: replace/swap a theme color throughout the document.

              • Generate specs / measurements / style guide for developers

                What definitely needed in the Design community is to ease the design-development delivery-review phase. To unload both of the sides.

                A lot of different platforms, tools, plugins were meant to do that and none of them is fully unloading and simplifying that process.

                PNG Express, Specking, Avocode, Markly, Zeplin, Craft, Marketch etc...

                I believe there is a need in having some specifications delivery service, styleguide generating service.

                Specs:
                + Measuring distance from text line height (because that's how developers do), not font size.
                + Ability to adjust the UI on the go with automatic sepcs changing
                + Ability to select…

                • Artboard Overlays (sidebar / menu / popup) in interactive prototypes

                  Hi there, currently the only interaction is a page switch with some easing functions, but when you click a button, it would be nice that you van select a artboard that you can use as a "overlay" over another artboard. So that way you can create lightboxes in your protytype.

                  • Import Photoshop / PSD

                    Import Photoshop file with options to select layers and/or artboards.

                    This would increase ease of use and workflow, so a user is not always switching between apps. Import options for layers, artboards, or even layer comps, would also cut down a lot of rework.

                    • Responsive artboards / adaptive layout constraints for resizing

                      Similar to Edge Reflow, it would be great to have the ability to prototype responsive design ideas with a fluid, flexible canvas. Web designers need a good tool for this there really isn't anything out there to test out responsive design solutions.

                      • Design with Data

                        I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

                        I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.

                          • 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?

                            • Global/Master artboard templates (pin objects across all artboards)

                              1. Ability to have a single object (or group) break out of its artboard and cross multiple artboards within a single prototype. The simplest use case is the creation of a global navigation bar that spans across multiple screens. This object's interactive elements would also work across multiple screens as well, and any edits to this object would update across the rest of the screens.

                              2. Easy interaction management and editing. Also provides consistency with consistent elements within an experience.

                              • Export Measurements for Developers

                                Now that Adobe XD allows designers to measure all their elements. There's still the problem of having to deliver the design to the developers. They always require a spec sheet with the measurements. They don't want to download Adobe XD because they think it's hard to use, and would rather have a PDF opened instead.

                                It would be great to have a feature where I can have the measurements present itself on the page when I export to PDF, instead of having to manually type in the measurements as well as drawing the lines between the elements of my app…

                                  You can easily make text bold or italic in XD, but not underlined. There should be an Underline style or toggle button for creating designs with links, etc.

                                    • Allow interaction wires/links from objects inside a symbol

                                      I was so excited about the new symbols feature that I made all of my navbars in a design a symbol. This may be one of the most obvious uses of symbols, since every page will almost always have the same navbar. But you can't connect objects inside a symbol. Therefore, you can't connect nav items, icons, logos in a nav bar.

                                      Either allow connects for objects inside symbols, but don't propagate them in all instances, or DO propagate them in all instances. But you HAVE to be able to connect objects inside symbols in prototype mode.

                                      Otherwise, we can…

                                      • Import Illustrator / AI

                                        Import Illustrator file with options to select layers and/or artboards.

                                        This would increase ease of use and workflow, so a user is not always switching between apps.

                                        • Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)

                                          This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.
