Actions to show and hide a component on an artboard
Something I used to use in Axure constantly was the ability to show and hide elements on a single screen. It would open up lots of possibilities, add tons of flexibility, and reduce the number of artboards needed if in XD we could trigger actions to either show or hide one or more components on an artboard. It would be even more amazing if when choosing the show component action, you could also set the component's state.
Thanks for the clarification! I don't think we have something like this currently in the database, so I'll leave it open as-is.

You are welcome, Elaine! Thanks for following up! Yes, it would be as if you had hidden the object in the layers panel – when previewing a prototype and you trigger the hide action you would not be able to see or interact with the target component(s).
One additional thought on this feature – if I remember correctly, in Axure you could also choose to show/hide with or without a fade. It would be great to have that option in XD, as well.
