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.
Fixed elements are finally here!! We’re incredibly excited to announce that you can select any top-level element in your artboard and click “Fixed Position” to fix your element anywhere in the viewport.

I was waiting so long for Adobe XD update to finally come out and when it actually did, guest what?
That's right - it did NOT include a single word about sticky elements :(
Adobe - if you don't want another flash/brackets failure - you better priorities your features correctly and put the most important ones at the top of your list.
You cannot get a clearer signal from the "community" to tell you how essential this feature is.
Time to wake up!!

Add me to the list who would love to see this. Adobe XD is such a cool tool, but the mockups just don't look the same when the nav bar moves with the rest. Thanks!
Does it really take a year to do this?
Carlos Vega commented
it make sense Adobe wants to keep as simple as possible this tool, buy it is a key feature.
Maybe if they allow to combine multiple art boards in a single one. that will make the trick.
Thomas Hallgren commented
This will definitely be a key feature of the overlay/layers feature.
Fixed Elemets are very common in Websites, so there should be a way to preview this behavior with XD.
Same topic like here (but for Windows)
Bryan Rieger commented
Can't believe it's still not possible to do this in XD - makes it essentially useless. Oh well, back to Flinto, Principle and Framer. :(
This is the main missing feature from XD, but I'm sure I don't have to tell you that. In the meantime, we can revert to using InVision (for example) to show this. Not good, as I'm trying to sway colleagues into using XD over Sketch/InVision.
Not implemented by this time update.
It was disappointed.
Ian Perriman commented
So the latest update for January 2017 didn't include this feature!
Absolutely ridiculous that XD doesn't have this! So still unusable for me and it seems many others! How about listening Adobe!?
Matt Doe commented
I need this feature by Friday! I assumed if you were discussing it back in May that it would have already been added...
David Kart commented
How far along are we with this? We would like to have an update, please
This should have been a 1st release feature. The idea of not being able to add scrollable content with fixed items makes prototyping using XD impossible.
"We have started the work to allow scrolling of any group leaving other objects on the screen to be fixed."
I am not sure if this is exactly what we designers want over here. We want to be able to pin any element group in certain position and build interactions like opening menus etc for it. It does not make sense that we should mark all the scrollable elements instead of just checking one group to be fixed.

Any update on this feature?
Boo! This is a pretty big deal.
This is a must have feature. I am actually surprised how Adobe hasn't added his yet.
Sipho Ngwenya commented
I guess we're all still waiting for this feature. This is rather disappointing!!! I would have expected this to be an obvious thing to add when Adobe was implementing scrolling :(
Diana Terry commented
Still looking forward to this! Haven't seen any updates like the other commenters. Hope I'm not missing something. :)
Currently working with fixed background images for an app.
