Run multiple prototypes simultaneously (multiple Preview windows in desktop app)
I'm about to do a focus group - and we have a Mobile AND Web prototype we're running.
Right now, I can only "play" one prototype at a time - Making side-by-side comparison impossible. (So if I click the play button on my Web prototype, it shows up, but when I click the play button on my Mobile prototype - it closes the web one to open the mobile one).
I'd like to be able to have both running simultaneously - so we could compare interactions "live" as it were.

Yes, in that way we could also demonstrate interconnected interfaces that need several screens simultaneously. In one solution, I have one interaction interface that triggers to visualize information on another screen after interacting with it. Also, I would like to show on a third screen an alternative interaction mode.
Yes, it'd be great if XD didn't share the preview window between projects. Sometimes I'll have a project open with the preview window open, then I want to open a ui kit to grab a component. The preview window then gets taken over by the UI kit. I don't really care to preview artboards from the UI kit, but anytime I'm clicking within the UI kit project, the preview window shows those artboards. I'd love to be able to keep a preview open in one project while clicking around in another.
Agree! This is a hugely needed feature to compare between platforms, or between old vs updated versions. It's the most intuitive way to show the differences.
Yes, please. I'm about to have a meeting where I show exactly how my design works on desktop and mobile. Having two prototypes running side by side on screen would be a massive help.

This would help comparing different versions of a prototype side by side (older vs newer). I wouldn't want to clutter a file with multiple versions on the same canvas or maintain multiple version history links in the cloud.
