Zoom in interactive prototype shared link (Share for Review mode)
PLEASE add a Zoom capability for "Share for Review" public links. Unbelievable that when sharing a URL with a client of a website that is 1920x5950 that there is no way to zoom the image to fill the full width of the screen so they can actually read the text and see what their web page will look like. Why does the public link only allow the full height of the artboard to be displayed and not allow a zoom-and-scroll functionality? We've had to resort to sharing designs in Dropbox and using that zoom and comment functionality because XD never thought about that feature.
Note from Adobe:
You can already zoom in a Design Specs shared link. This request is about making it so you can also zoom in interactive prototype views as well (aka Share for Review).
We are working on enabling Zoom functionality in web prototypes, where you should be able to use normal zoom gestures to enlarge the design and be able to read the text or see an element better. This should be available in a future release of XD.
Has this not been addressed? this is a huge issue for our team. We are exploring switching to Xd, but this is a major issue for our cross-collaborators.
Zoom is only in View Specs. It could be always availiable.
XD has a dumb way to make this happen.
In the "Design" tab (not Prototype or Share), click anywhere on your artboard and then move the blue "fold" line to around 1,000 pixels from the top of the board. Now go back to Share and re-make the link. Clicking the link will show your tall web page at full width in a 1,000-pixel tall frame. Now the reviewer can scroll to see the rest. Still no zooming, but at least this lets you present the page properly.
If your page still presents too small, move the "fold" to 750 pixels or whatever works.
This, coupled with the fact that there are no visible scrollbars when your creative extends past the page height, plus the need to be over the artboard to scroll vertically, make for very frustrated stakeholders.
We've considered including an instruction page as a standard intro to our prototypes.
Hi, I loved to work with adobe xd, but when I share my prototype with the client, they alwaysa say me there is a few elements can not see weell,
will be wonderful to have a ZOOM TOOL in the protype
Another thing that really shouldn't have been overlooked - seems pretty obvious. When people see a proof, they want to be able to read it - and look closer at details, etc. This seems more like a bug than something that is just not offered. PLEASE fix this, Adobe!

Is this ever going to happen? Adobe XD is awesome. However, this single feature is forcing me to move my entire software team to a different platform. This is crazy!!!

I can’t believe this has been sitting in the backlog for so long!

We need to be able to ZOOM in comments mode and full-screen mode. Why can you only zoom in Specs mode? Please fix this... I cannot see where the comment dots are being placed on large artboards!!!

Yes, there is great need of Zoom-in/ out functionality on 'Share for Review'. Wright now it's impossible to read the content (even after using vertical scroll feature).

Only 14 votes? Is anyone professional using XD? How can anyone who has ever conducted a client review overlook this critical function? InVIsion, Zeplin, Sketch and every other prototype software have it. Our only workaround is to pay for another 3rd party subscription of a prototype/handoff service like Zeplin.
Adobe Here is an idea. Dump Dreamweaver and buy Zeplin.
You can achieve the full height by moving the fold dotted line guide to the bottom of your artboard.
It indeed is ridiculous that zoom in /out is still not possible.. I am truly questioning if anyone from Adobe works with his/her own software because otherwise you would realize it is not possible to work without a zoom.
Further down the post Arun has given the solution, this worked for me.
There are NO online/web functions to zoom in on a document. That "enlarge" icon, next to the "?" icon doesn't do anything of value (all it does is snap the document to the top of the view-document field). Using the keyboard-shortcuts does not work either (as report in several bug reports here).
It doesn't help much when demo'ing a webpage to a client, and a good part of the screen is taken up by the Adobe XD UI. PLEASE also include a button/icon to remove all that unnecessary UI so we can show the mockup in real FULL-SCREEN.
Please give us proper online/web functions and abilities to zoom in/out of a document.

Really need it zoon in feature in shared review link as the client is unable to read the text in content.
...such a "professional" partner... and essential functions are not available...? Sorry Adobe - but for things like this I'm not going to pay any more...

I'm not sure if this helps but if you share the link type "Share for Development" when you are creating the share it has the ability to zoom in the browser just like you want. I typically share both links and provide that instruction as needed. Maybe this helps...

Baby please please.....

The review function is useless for large websites.

We need this feature, is it really so hard? Why should we ask for obvious things?
