Advanced Overlay Positioning/Artboard controls
Overlays are a fantastic addition to XD, and I thought these additions would be a great way to expand on the freedom overlays give us:
1. Ability to place overlays on any area of the artboard, including below/above the main view port and off the the side (partially on the artboard)
2. Advanced positioning for overlay placement (i.e. nudging with keyboard)
3. The ability to anchor overlays to scroll with content below it.
4. Not directly related to overlays, but I would like to see the ability to control the location of the top and bottom of the viewport (i.e. To position the top and bottom guides of the viewport to allow unseen content above the viewport)

Yes! Please! Figma is way ahead of XD on this.

+1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is there just one developer on the XD team? Why is it taking so long?
#1 need >>> Please add. Getting this specific ask from clients that adding new pages is causing a unrealistic output.
Albert Lewis commented
When is this coming? :( We need it now.

Yes, overlays that scroll with the design are a must! Please move this into development @Adobe!
+1 on this. Specially 3. ( The ability to anchor overlays to scroll with content below it.)
+1 on this. Serious need.

I second this, please. It'd be nice to prototype overlays outside of the viewport.
It would be nice to allow overlays to start with the page (No Animation, No Click) so we could use it to create menus without having to create all the links on every single page where we put them.

#2. Placing overlays with pixel precision on the artboard via keybord, inputing X,Y coordinates and snapping to grid/other objects.
Jack B commented
Yes, please. Especially #1. It should be possible to place the overlays anywhere on the view.
