  1. Generate password automatically.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the new feature - password on shared prototype.
    Everything works well, except that I need to generate secured password by myself.

    So, kindly add auto generate feature.

    Thanks.

  2. Move all connections to an artboard to another

    It would be so helpful to be able to move all the connections linked to 1 page and attach them to another 1.

    For example: I connected 30 pages to the Home page, but now my Home is another one and I'd like to move all those connections to the new one.

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

  3. Select all artboards that are used (or unused) in prototype / connected by wires

    Hi. I'd like to be able to select all artboards used or not used in a prototype.

    I would use this in a couple of ways:


    1. I want to clean up my artboard layout, so that "current" artboards are in one area and older or reference artboards are off to the side. The current ones are the ones linked up in the prototype. I'd like to select all artboards that aren't in the prototype—don't link from or to the home board through any path—and then move those all with one gesture to another area of the workspace, leaving only the…

  4. Option to make Preview window not always on top

    The 'design preview' window is set to always be the topmost / frontmost window when running XD. This is a problem because it deviates from standard window behavior on a mac.

    If a program has multiple windows that I can minimize or dismiss, then I should be able to bring any window to the forefront by simply selecting it. All other windows should then automatically stay open but appear behind the topmost window.

    I just want XD to follow standard practice on the mac. I'm very comfortable switching between windows using cmd+~ or using the 'window' menu in the toolbar.

  5. Add 'home artboard' as a new target artboard

    Currently we can set links to any specific artboard. This is very helpful. I use it for creating a button on every slide that will take me to a contents artboard, where I can link to different flows.
    The problem in this setup is that, when in prototype mode, there are a lot of links drawn between the artboards, as each artboard is linked to the contents artboard (see attchment).
    I find this can be easily alleviated if I could link the buttons to the 'home artboard', and so it could spare having to draw the links to that artboard. …

  6. Transitions within the objects footprint

    Me again...

    It would also be nice to specify whether an object's transition (animated transitions only) happens across the entire artboard or only within the objects own footprint. The effect would be similar to the Linear Wipe effect in After Effects.

    e.g. I have a solid element on the right that should slide left, BUT the slide happens only within the space it occupies - effectively making it appear to disappear behind an invisible element at it's left hand edge.

  7. Widgets and Interactions built on Cases

    I'd like to have the ability create/download/share interactive widgets that work on logical cases and states. The cases would also allow a wide array of interactions styles (on click, on mouse drop, on drag, on release etc.). The states would allow widgets to respond to cases (for example a set of controls can be active or inactive depending on the state of a particular widget). Without the ability to create logical cases it seems like XD is very limited.

  8. Remove design features from Prototype mode.

    Please remove design feature from the prototype mode. No delete, paste etc when prototype mode. Switching is easy for those needing to tweak a design along the way.

  9. Trusted user testing group

    I would like to have a way to invite trusted people to user test my prototypes; in fact, I would like to entrust this to a group of verified AdobeXD users. Instead of always trying to hunt down ways to user test on another platform and then get participants. I would like to turn to a set of UXers and ask for feedback. This could relate getting Adobe Points for being a tester and for providing feedback.

  10. Go back one screen in Preview using the delete key

    When viewing a preview of your design work in the current window could you make the delete key go back to the previous link please. (Just like a browser back button would do)

  11. Remember prototype interactions (mouse clicks) so re-recordings are easily repeatable automatically

    I think it would be handy if you could set triggers in prototype to record pre defined motion paths for the video e.g: A (Home) to B (Next page) back to A.

  12. Prototyping: magnifying glass/loupe to help linking small elements

    If I want to create a link from a small element like a menu item to another page, it is hard to accurately select the text and be zoomed out far enough to see the page I want to link to.

    I know you can use the drop down to select the page, but if you want to do it visually it would be good if the area around the cursor would zoom like a loupe to enable easier selection.

  13. allow event except only than action

    Currently, XD only supports actions. But it would be great to have user events. For eg. Scroll To is action that is added to XD while the same can be added in event type - On Scroll.

    This feature will be an aid to various use cases. Here's one example:

    Let's say, when we view the prototype, "when scrolling" floating action bar disappears, "when scrolling stopped" the floating action bar appears again with some animation.

    So, this means; if we can have events then we can have any components state changes.

  15. 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.

  16. Convert artboard links to component states

    Problem: Components quickly become convoluted and hard to track. They lose track of elements in Auto Animate. They have problems when nesting components. Still we cannot allow for two swipes on one object.

    Possible Solution: Since linking artboards seems to be more stable and intuitive than components. I wish we could simply turn linked artboards into components.

  17. States be retained across canvases, and retained as children

    Having a card component with a hover state, and within this card component is a checkbox.

    If I hover over the card component and mark the checkbox as selected, when the card component goes back to regular mode as I am not hovering any longer - the checkbox unchecks.

  18. Mousewheel trigger

    It would be usefull to allow to use the wheel of the mouse to interact between two screens in the two direction.
    for now, we can only use a clic or the keyboard to simulate a scroll. for a client, i't not easy to understand

  20. Maintain last known component state when autoanimating to a new artboard

    Would be great if XD would remember the last known component state when autoanimating to a new artboard. Or, better yet, let us mark components for state remembrance on artboard change. Otherwise we are right back to the thnig states was supposed to solve, duplicating artboards for the appearance of a saved state hahaha ;)

    I have seen and voted on some other feature requests for conditional behavior, which could solve this issue too if implemented right, but this is a bit different.

    I have posted an example prototype here:

    When the prototype launches, click the blue…
