    I don't think the scrolling that was introduced in May 2016 met the requirement of this post, so the FEATURE-STARTED status probably isn't accurate (unless you are indeed working on this currently). Being able to scroll the whole app is handy, but this is actually about having a specific window on a screen that can have more content and be scrolled through.

    This would be a great addition! I'm currently working on a new interaction design for an existing product and the wire frames I've shown really require this feature.

    I'm being yelled at by my boss to switch to Sketch because Adobe XD is not capable of competing with them.

    if you can see the video, we want to be able to create and scroll defferent areas of the screen like you can see on YouTube?

    A little tip for scrollable area: you can use second artboard that scrolling is checked. And in prototype set Trigger: Time, Delay: 0 and Action: Overlay. It isn´t best solution, but it´s working.

    Hi, I think I found it. Just click " fix position when scrolling" on the content that you want to fix. It works on mine! :)

    It goes without saying, that our websites and apps sometimes scroll! Until yesterday, it was impossible to emulate scrolling within XD.

    Making a given screen, or artboard rather, scrollable is fortunately very easy.

    Let's say you have the following artboard (by the way, I copied this from the Google Material Design UI Kit within Adobe XD), and you want to simulate scrolling of this list of names.

    Notice the red Viewport Height section. This is the viewable area by default.

    If you want to make this artboard scrollable beyond that height, you simply drag down the bottom of the artboard:

    Notice the dotted horizontal line, that's the Viewport Height. Anything below this will become scrollable content.

    Let's drag the bottom Name group down to the bottom:
