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.

When Prototyping to pass along to FE, it is very important for me to be as precise as possible. Figma already has drag specification, so why wouldn't a superior software offer comparable if not superior features?
Recently I started using Figma to some limitations of XD. As I was using it, I realized that Figma has functions that I consider necessary for XD and I would like to leave them as suggestions.
1- Alignment of texts: Having more alignment options would be great, the texts by default are aligned to the center, but there could be the option to adjust in other directions.
2- Prototyping and animations: I noticed that XD has a certain difficulty in understanding what I want to do when animating, in the example I tried to make a carousel that could be dragged, leaving each image centered, in Figma this option works perfectly as it should and has a very smooth animation, in XD it prevents me from placing the same function twice (Drag) on an object and also does not perform the animation it should do.
3- Grids: XD's grids don't have an automatic function, that is, I can't use custom values to create my columns because XD can't automatically adjust the width of the columns to deliver the result I would like.
4- Windows: XD could have adjustable windows like in Figma, in some cases the options windows appear overlaying the elements I would like to adjust and I don't even have the option to move the screen by pressing the space key without closing the window.
5- Move selected objects: In XD I can expand the size of selected objects, but I can't move them while viewing the distance between them, I need to align them so I can see the distance and then move them, doing it in one go time with the selected object would be more practical.

Why has this feature not been included?
There really is little point in having a drag feature that doesn't support multi-directional dragging, especially when it is in an application to help designers prototype for touch screen devices!
Please add ASAP!!
Ideally it would be nice to have something like the following:
Please add this feature (up, down, left, right)

This feature should be avaliable ASAP, I'm having trouble with my design because of this.
DeAndre Holland commented
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!
Jordan Morris commented
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!
Marcello Akira commented
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.

dragging gestures request , a must needed feature.. RTL & LTR both direction should be made available.
