Fixed/sticky after scrolling
First of all, congrats on the new update, it's awesome!
One of the most awaited features for me was the fixed/sticky option. One thing that got in my mind after trying it was making something "stick" after scrolling, like a "go back top" button, which you don't want to have before you actually start scrolling.
Could be interesting to give a start and end position to a sticky element. Using this I will be able for exemple to create a side sticky menu. To do so I will give a Y position to start and a Y position to not cross.
That’s a scroll-then-fix position. It would be awesome to have it in XD

There is already the possibility to Fix Position When Scrolling, but what would be interesting would be to be able to set the Scroll position when you want to Start this component to be fixed, and the one where you want it to Stop being fixed.
This will help a lot into building more real prototypes with real behaviors and layouts that you're not able to build and show in any other way. I've felt limited because of this missing feature in lots of projects.

I'd like to be able to create components that only appear when a target element connects with them or comes near them.

I love the fixed position in prototype mode but it only works for elements inside the initial viewport. I'd like to be able to pin an element further down the page once I scroll past it. For example share icons on a blog post, or a sub menu on a product list page.
If there could be a pixel height for when something becomes "sticky" that would work well. For example "Fix Position when 750px have been scrolled". Thank you

This needs more votes!

A sticky element toggles between relative and fixed positioning (in CSS), depending on the scroll position. It is positioned relative until a given offset position is met in the viewport - then it "sticks" in place (like position:fixed).
Currently it is posible to position elements fixed in XD. Anyways, sometimes one want to have elements be positioned sticky instead of fixed - so I'd really love to see a feature which makes me able to doso in adobe xd as well.

This idea is the same as a request already stated, named "Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour". My thought is that many people may pass this request up to vote on it because of how it is named. Maybe the name wont change the poll results, but as a UX designer you have to question why some things that seem very important aren't getting more results.
This is a function that you see all over the web, where the user scrolls down the page and elements can be sticky, change size, or animate in many different ways.
Update: I guess my comment was moved under a different request, although i'm surprised that it was moved under this request and not the one mentioned earlier in my statement before. We really should be combining the two then which would greatly increase the votes.

Why isn’t that even under review?
Would really help for showing modern interfaces
Hi @Georgian Butunoi,
I have a question about the "filter_mobile.gif" file. How do you create two sticky header? with removing the part between the two headers?
Hailey Liu commented
When using fixed-position elements, allow a maximum y position so that scrolling beyond that point "unfixes" the element and it behaves normally. Scrolling back above this point "refixes" the element.
This would be really great for "sticky" headers, page outlines for navigation, etc.

This should be called “sticky elements”. Shouldn’t it? And it should be sticky where ever you tell it to be. Not only at the top of the viewport. See my attachment.
I‘d love to see that too!!!

I new feature where I can set an element to be fixed to the top of the browser (ex a sticky menu) when I scroll and it hits the top of the browser, not before it hits. And remove the fixed position when I scroll down again.
^^^^ bump ^^^^ yes this feature is a must.
Ronnie Matthews commented
I would like to see selectable options for fix position, e.g., when scrolling down a page a component becomes fixed with a determined property like fix to top, or add to fixed stack. This could be helpful for sticky navbars, secondary navbars and scrollspy.
I agree this would be very helpful and has become a standard on many web pages.
