Ability to define wire color

Being able to select the color for the connectors not only makes it easier for me to understand the interactions better at a glance but when I share the wireframes with developers it gives more clarity to the progression of interactions.

    a lot of UI kits are grey and sometime done in Cyan blue. So it makes it nearly impossible to see the lines at all.

    Yes. At the very least, a different color for different transition types and for outbound, inbound links.

    While looking at Prototype and clicking on a wireframe to see all the connections, it would be helpful to have connections to and from as different colors.

    Outgoing - blue
    Incoming - red

    Makes it easy to see if any connections were forgotten.

    Thanks

    Agree. Ridiculous that links are same colour as bounding boxes. I love XD but you have heaps of work to do before it become a prper working tool

    Enhance interactivity under prototype mode

    Is it possible to enable user to draw multi-wires which is distinguished by colors over a unique element? That means each input and output have a property about color (parameters), and then the interaction can go according to different color wire.

    To be frank, Xd is fantastic, but currently its interactivity is a little bit weak.

    Yes, this would help a lot as our branded blue color is the exact same blue as the bounding boxes. Bounding boxes are lost when overlaid on our blue color.

    The ability to change the colors of the bezier relations between artboards and the ability to adjust their curves so it won't overlap the artboard.

    Well, today I finished a huge prototype, with more than 50 screens and high fidelity for interactions. I found a problem to know what is the transition used on each asset, it would be great to have a color differential for each type of transition.

    Minor feature, but needed. The ability to change the color of all links in Prototype mode, which should also effect link hinting in the web demo.

    When working on a mockup that has a lot of blue elements, I cannot see the blue arrows that XD uses to link together artboards in Prototype mode. That problem is only compounded when showing a project to clients and they can't see the blue on blue hinting for interaction targets on that artboard.

    My request would be a simple color swatch that we can update, in the tool bar on the left, that sets a global color for all of the interactions arrows.

    Thanks.
