Drag in multiple directions
Would love to drag an object both directions. Perhaps if we could add hot spots to the left and right of a container, then you can either drag it left or right.
Example: in g-mail, drag the message right to delete, left to archive. Would like to render this behavior.
Thought two, add these touch points or hot spots to and image so I can drag left or right from the image itself to go forwards or backwards.

Wow, can't believe this feature hasn't been added yet. This feature alone makes me have to use Figma because I don't like creating workarounds for my designs.

Separating out the single drag into Drag Left, Drag Right, Drag Up, and Drag Down would be brilliant. The Get Started with Prototyping Tutorial reached how to drag between the different screens for Onboarding and while drag can be set up, it can only be set up to drag in one direction. I was immediately disappointed that this wasn't a current feature.

Just add to the weight of voices already here with no official response from Adobe.
This needs to happen
Please make this option a priority adobe!
Yes, you guys have to do this!
It feels like a pretty basic logical thing to add!

Woud love an update to see if this is being considered by Adobe for the near future. I was kind of "shocked" to see that there is a singular drag direction, disabling the ability to do a prototype that simply swipes left or right. Seems like a bizarre omission.

we NEED this feature since ever!

Basic feature. Pls up this request Adobe! :(
I was very disappointed to discover that Adobe XD does not allow putting multiple drag interactions on the same component. I am trying to build a prototype in which the user can drag a component in different directions for different results (think Tinder, able to swipe left or right on the same card), but have been unable to accomplish this in XD because only one drag action per component is permitted.
I need to drag down to expand the content, please consider this use case
For sure needed.
I help myself with a workaround:
invisible box at the right 50% for dragging to the left and invisible 50% box at left for dragging right. Most of the time the user does not notice the limitation.
I am requesting for multiple triggers in one transition type, in one shape or object(s). This will allow users to drag one direction and drag the opposite direction. We can create multiple wires from the same object but with the different triggers, It is not specific to drag only.
I have attached a screenshot to furthermore explain what I'm trying to do. Do you notice the properties that I have set up? I want it to drag or swipe from box 1 to box 2. However, I cannot get it to drag from box 1 to box 4. Basically, two or more states, one state dragging from box 1 to box 2 and another state from box1 to box 3. I would only be able to switch a state by changing it's a trigger to "tap" and not an additional "drag".
Hopefully, this will help.

agreed. RTL & LTR both direction should be made available. This will be very useful and more efficient whem prototyping the outcome to clients

I would like to drag direction and drag distance to be able to be set. This would allow me to drag a longer distance to go across multiple artboards to animate a picker wheel.
Ganesh Deveppa commented
dragging gestures request , a must needed feature.. RTL & LTR both direction should be made available.
Please drag back direction!
This is much needed! I want to specify between horizontal and vertical. Currently, it's very limiting to only be able to drag horizontally.
Brent Bisaillion commented
Currently you can only set a single drag occurrence to an object. I would like to suggest being able to drag a single object in multiple directions, example up + down + left + right, and allow for tap.
XD is such a flexible prototyping tool that goes beyond designing for web, mobile, or watches. Something like this would be helpful for designing interactions on a wider set of object with different controls.

Really hope this is a feature soon... I didn't expect it to be so difficult to implement
unbelievable this is still not updated! >:(
Is one of the most important gesture for Mobile Prototyping
