Drag feature should be supported on Windows touch screens
The new drag feature is awesome, but it doesn't work with Windows touch screens. I get the fact that the feature is simple in its early days (can't animate properties like color etc), but not adding support for touch events is just simply unacceptable!
I intentionally added this as a bug report, not a feature request because this should never have been an issue! I'm disappointed that you just forgot that Windows has touch displays.

Hello Adobe XD Team,
We´ve exactly the same problem and really need to use this drag gesture. I tried different devices for testing drag gesture: surface doesn´t work, dell with touchdisplay (Win10) doesn´t work. The feature that might help is connect Adroid tablet via USB with the Windows PC- but it doesn´t work neither!
We work for a big customers who are at the point to decide with which prototyping plattform to continue for future projects. This issue is definitely show stopper for XD!
Please fix this.

Horizontal scroll works but not drag?? I dont even understand why this would be an issue!
It's ridiculous that this hasn't been addressed. Touch screen Windows devices should be the perfect platform for rapid prototyping and testing of touch interfaces, and yet they fail on this basic gesture.
There's even more crazy inconsistency when you share a prototype link and view that online:
In native XD preview mode, vertical scrolling works, but horizontal drag does not
In Chrome, viewing a user testing share link, horizontal drag works but vertical scrolling does not.
Having discovered this, I'm contemplating rebuilding my entire project in proto.io just so I can demonstrate the basic functionality on my touch screen.
For sure, this is actually a reason to use competitor software. Would reccomend you fix it up asap!
I too faced in the same in windows desktop and laptops. Because due to this, I have pressure from the client-side to complete the interactions. But in vain due to the drag issue in windows systems, the client is not able to navigate to the next screen. Please fix this asap. The drag trigger is not working in windows systems.
Looking forward to use drag on touch displays.
Agree with this as well! I didn't realize it was completely incapable of this until I was directed to this feature request. Drag feature in general could also be more robust but for prototype preview purposes, it would be greatly beneficial.
