  1. 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.

          We’ve tried to keep it under wraps, but we’re currently working on the early steps of getting this feature working. Please be patient with us and be on the lookout for some upcoming research opportunities!

          Thanks,

        • 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.

            • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Underline text

                        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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

                                  In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

                                  If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

                                  -Elaine

                                • Export whole artboards (or entire project) as HTML

                                  It would be great to Export Prototypes as pure HTML Projects. I am working a lot on Multiscreen apps, where I mostly use Serveal Webcontainers Running on several Screens, to develop those Applications.

                                      • Gestures - swipe, pinch/zoom, force touch

                                        In order to full use this as a UX professional, I would have to have the ability to include gestures, most critically for handing a stakeholder a wireframe or design. Gestural swipes, two-finger zoom, force-touch, etc. Otherwise I don't think too many experience UX professionals will be able to properly communicate core functionality and the behavioral imperatives incumbent to the process.

                                        • Linked Objects / Images

                                          Option to link objects (or generate smart objects) when pasted from a PSD or AI source to maintain a reference.

                                          This would provide a simple method for single or multiple object updates (beyond the CC Design Libraries integration)—saving time and ensuring all objects are the most current.

                                          Example: Revision to a microphone icon via Illustrator, which is used across 20 artboards
