  1. Overlay doesn't work with scroll

    If you have a scrolling art board 2000px high (1366 wide), set a scroll position of 768px. Add an overlay to hot spot to call an overlay panel at say 800px and then as you scroll to the hot spot at 800px click to reveal the overlay and nothing will happen. It is broken by the scroll.

  2. Prototype overlays cannot placed outside artboard

    1) Artboard overlay indicator is placed
    2) Content on artboard cannot be aligned with button or page margin
    3) In order to show box-shadow in the protoype I had to extend my overlay artboard. But then I cannot align it to the page margin or button, because the overlay function does not allow me to place it outside of the view.

    Also it would be great to see the applied grid/layout settings in prototype mode, so it is possible to place the overlays pixel perfect.

  4. the view layer icon is wrong

    I don't understand why when I turn on a layer to view it on the layer panel
    the eye icon is with a cross on it?
    when I turn on the layer view the eye icon shouldn't be crossed it should be in low opacity with out a cross

  5. Unlink/delete linked assets

    I've linked assets from other document...nice...but how to unlink them? Delete from assets?

    While I'm able do everything with components which I draged & dropped from other document, I cant do nothing with them when I'm using "+" as linking method.

  6. Redo Shortcut - Ctrl + Y

    Sometimes I use the undo shortcut once too many. Please allow Ctrl + Y for a redo. Even if there's only one possible redo, I'd take it.

  7. export dialog is fairly crippled

    I'm very unhappy with the export dialog regarding the conventions that you have in other adobe products like photoshop or illustrator. Actually I even consider XD export counter intuitive. No! It even doesn't makes sense to me, sorry. Your other Adobe software gives the possibilty to upscale or downscale. Instead XD will only downscale, wtf? Sure, there is svg-export, but ya know svg is a tricky pita: Photoshop and Illustrator quite often fail to render svg correctly. So exporting svg for being able to upscale is pure gambling. Please give as a proper export dialogue instead of the current feature…

  8. Artboard overview in published prototype

    Hi,

    2 related questions here:

    1.
    forgive me if I'm wrong, but I can't seem to find a way to open the artboard overview (if there is one) in the published prototype. I mean in the web application, not the desktop preview.
    The published design specs have an overview page of all artboards, the published prototype doesn't.
    Am I missing something? Or is it not implemented (yet?) ?

    I consider this as a nice to have feature, because in some cases not all prototypes are clickable, so only navigating with the arrow keys is not sufficient.

    2.
    Is it possible…

    Hi,

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us!

    We are happy to know that you like the overview page with all Artboards listed for a glance. Please note that currently this overview page is only presented for Design Specs.

    To understand more about your use cases w.r.t Prototype, I had couple of questions here.

    1. Is navigating to the artboards the only use case that you would use this overview page for in case of Prototypes?

    2. When you say not all artboards are clickable, can you explain this with an example? I wanted to understand how would your artboards be linked in that scenario.

    3. When your prototype is created, how would you like your clients or stakeholders to navigate through for review? Would you be ok if they just use the overview page and go all across without going through the experience flow you have created?

    Thanks!

  9. Overlay position accounts for scrolling in viewport

    There is a bug when i preview an overlay effect. If a do scroll the overlay appears in the wrong place.

    After discussing with the team this is working as designed. Overlay position is relative to the viewport. Meaning, wherever it is set to appear in the linked artboard is where it remains.

    I’ve updated the title and moved to feature request forum for team to consider including in future release.

    Thanks for sharing your feedback!

  10. "Favourite Fonts" not available in XD like in the other Apps like Ai or Ps?

    Shame as it makes it easier to browse through the fonts we usually used the most or the most - I suppose that the other option is to save the top choices in the current project library?
    XD version: 10.0.12.09 / CC version: 3.1.0.8

    Many thanks for your help and time!
    Karen

  11. Export original image inside a mask, not just the masked region.

    When exporting a selected image inside a mask for export, the expectation is that the original photo will be exported if thats all I've selected. Instead it's just exporting the masked region.

    This is particularly frustrating you need to pass along original assets to a development team that will do their own masking on a live website or app.

  12. Published Prototype default transition: Pls REVERT to "none" instead of slide left

    We have a project of complex web app designs, once we're ready to submit this for review, we:
    - publish prototype
    - create public link (allow comments and show hotspot hints)

    so BEFORE, we open the xd link to browser (chrome) then scroll through designs using left and right arrow keys to review every page. There's no transition between pages, so it will be easy to spot misalignments and inconsistent spaces. We haven't added transition wires on every page, just created public link then review online. Now, the transition between pages is "slide left".

    Not effective, can we revert it…

  13. Renaming character styles or symbols does not affect design specs

    HI,

    I tried out the feature of renaming charater styles and updated the design specs afterwards. When I opened the design specs they still had the original names. Rendering the feature half way useful.
