Default Transition Setting or Global Application of Transition Effect
As a user who needs to present UX ideas quickly to stakeholders, I would like there to be a way for me to set a default transition setting of my choice at both the file and application level.
I've found myself creating a complicated matrix of targets, only to realize that the last 20 I did (or was it 30?) have the application, default 'slide left' when yesterday, I had everything set up for my 0.1 second dissolve without an ease out.
If not a preference setting, the ability to apply a transition globally to all targets.
Thanks everyone. Great job on a very useful product.
It's possible! You can do so when in Prototype mode and selecting all (cmd a) you can change the mode and duration and it will apply on all! (make sure to not select a target when doing global adjustments but that makes sense I guess)
Please add this to the feature backlog. Would like to see.
Please do this. I'm wasting a LOT of time because of that. Thanks

I second this:
"I'm tired of always setting up a duration of a transition (from one page to another) to 0"
but I would have said "sooooo tired..."
Option to set/adjust all animation speeds (perhaps even easing mode too) project-wide/globally.
I mean everyone should be able set their defaults in the whole program. Maybe also specifically in a project
Plus to that.
The window with settings of a transition(or any kind) is not showing entirely on my laptop screen and it's uncomfotable to scroll it.
BTW I'm using WIN
I'm tired of always setting up a duration of a transition (from one page to another) to 0
I have a lot of links in the project I'm working on. By default, the links in prototype mode transition on tap, dissolve, and ease out for 0.3 seconds. When I change the options on one of the links, all of the subsequently created links automatically inherit the new options. I like that feature because it keeps me from having to manually edit hundreds of links. However, when I close and reopen my file, I sometimes forget to change the options and the new links I create use the default settings again. Now I have some transitions that dissolve and some that do not. Please allow me to select all links and change all their settings at once, or allow me to change the default link setting.

Bulk change of all transitions would be amazing!

XD version 220.127.116.11
1. Create four art boards w/ an object on each.
2. Switch to Prototype mode and create a link between the object on artboard 1 to artboard 2.
3. Set the transition animation to None.
4. Create a link from the object on artboard 2 to artboard 3.
5. Notice that the transition type is still set to None.
6. Save and exit XD.
7. Restart XD and create a prototype link between the object on artboard 3 to artboard 4.
8. Notice that the transition animation type has reverted to Dissolve.
Expected behavior: The transition animation type of None should persist across editing sessions.

It would be fantastic if it were possible to change the animation behavior of all of the artboards at once (e.g. switch all from dissolve to none). This would allow us to quickly change the feel of simple prototypes without painstakingly clicking each wire in the artboard.
Zachary Newton commented
For example, the default is always "Dissolve". It would be nice to be able to set the default to "None" or one of the other options.
Have an option to have project wide transitions.
A little drop down in the prototyping panel that sets the default transition for all slides.
Instead of having to go though and changing them all halfway through, or after finishing the project.

I'd like to be able to apply a transition globally.
I would love to see this in XD!
I also would like to see this feature.
