  1. Background color on fullscreen prototype should be the same color as artboard color

    When you view the prototype in the background color is white on the page that surrounds the layout, but if you click the fullscreen icon top right the same backgound becomes black, this also removes the text navigation links under the layout.

    Why is this? And why doesn't the background fill the screen dynamically with the background of my web layout? It looks very strange when my 1024x768px gets a bordered frame around it instead of just getting a full background that occupies the screen, just like I would when making the same layout in Dreamweaver. When I preview layouts…

  2. "Live type" / Typewriter animation that looks like user is typing text

    ...to demonstrate how an interface interacts with text input. Basically would show how a form might be filled out or how search might work

  3. Ability to define wire color

    Being able to select the color for the connectors not only makes it easier for me to understand the interactions better at a glance but when I share the wireframes with developers it gives more clarity to the progression of interactions.

  4. Clipped Scrolling List inside a pop-up.

    Eg: When you have a friends list inside a game screen, in a prototype, I need to be able scroll in a clipped mask of a container, which is currently possible in Principle, which makes a group scrollable vertically or horizontally. I'm looking for the equivalent of the same here.

    We’re currently testing a feature like this as part of the private prerelease program, and expect to deliver this as part of the next product update. Please join the private prerlease to learn more, or stay tuned!

  5. Re-enable the feature to add your own icon to Prototypes

    In the Beta vesion of XD there used to be a feature to add an icon (client logo etc.) to the Prototypes, so if you saved it to your homescreen (iOS) the icon would act as the favicon/home screen icon. This seems to have been dissabled in the official release, can we have it back as it was very useful. Ironically my old prototypes still have the icon in them and I no longer have any way of updating/removing them

  6. Library of UI animations for prototype mode

    It would be great to have pre-defined animations in different design languages like material design so when we are previewing the prototype we can also preview the actual animations that will happen for lets say button. it would be great to enable people to develop such animations and share it with others so they can download a "Material Design Animation Kit", further, develop/modify it or just start using it to bring their design to life.
    this will obviously help with more satisfied customers, and developers where they have a common animation design language both beautiful and technologically implementable and standard.

  7. Sort/Group Artboards in interaction/wire popup's Target Artboard list

    It would be great to be able to sort and maybe group artboards. I think it would make it easier to select the target artboard in prototyping mode if you were able to sort them, alphabetically or even group multiple artboards so that you wouldn't need to scroll through a long list of artboards just to find the one you would like to target. It would be really usefully especially when your XD project contains 60 or even 100 artboards. Imagine scrolling through a list of 100 artboards that isn't sorted?

  8. Create hotkeys/shortcuts to jump to specific artboard in Prototype / Preview navigation (custom keyboard interactions)

    When in Prototype Mode, I need a way to quickly move between multiple screens.

    A set of keystrokes that I assigned as short cuts to go to a screen:
    - CTRL + 1 = Home Page
    - CTRL + 2 = Sign Up
    etc

    This same model can then be used to jump between screens in the Preview mode.

  9. Allow arrow cursor in Desktop Preview, not just "finger" circle

    Right now, when you enter Desktop Preview, the cursor is the typical white circle that is supposed to represent a finger. This is great when your project is a mobile app or website. But your project is a desktop app or website, it begs to have a normal black arrow for a cursor--and the Mickey Mouse gloved hand when hovering over clickable things--for recording videos and even just testing it out on your own. It's cumbersome and distracting to have a giant circle cursor for desktop experiences.

    When you create a new project, XD already asks what type of project…

  10. Hover triggers to ALL elements to trigger artboard navigations; not just state changes

    Now that the "Tap/Hover Effect" request ()https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12941394-tap-hover-effect?tracking_code=c41a5301558789f85205f7c47ec8b9ca) is officially closed, we need a feature to do what (I believe) the 8952 people who voted for it have been asking for since March of 2016:

    A way to assign Hover events as triggers for the existing interactions platform.

    Component states is a wonderful addition to XD, but it barely scratches the surface of what designers need for prototyping hover events.

    We need to be able to add tooltips, menu pop-up overlays and many other effects that still can only be achieved by transitioning to another artboard. As it stands,…

  11. Shadows don't animate with auto-animate

    When I animate drop-shadows on an element it doesn't animate with the rest of the element. Only after the element has animated does the shadow jump instantaneously from value set A to value set B.

  12. Collapsible Sections / Vertical Accordion

    I would like to be able to create an accordion that forces all elements below it down. I'm guessing the best way to do this is use overlays and and have the ability to fix the overlay to the accordion button and switch states of said button (closed/open)

  13. Show all interaction wires (links) without having to Select All

    In order to work and review the overall faster, I need an option to click on on the view menu that allows me to see all the links without having to click on all the artboards.

  14. Multiple overlay support

    I would like if I could overlay multiple artboards on one artboard. for example. on the prototype I'm working on, tapping on the search icon is suppose to overlay a search text box, which is one artboard and is to slide left at the top. but I would also wish to overlay another artboard for the keyboard which is to side up from the bottom.

  15. Dim background (set tint + alpha) behind overlay

    Love the new overlays feature! As an extended feature it would be great if you could choose what should happen to the background when the overlay appears. For example being able to dim the background by choosing a color and opacity.

    This would help with darkening the background for modals etc.

  16. Annotations on prototype connections

    We need the ability to annotate the connections between boards in prototype modes. So all the connection lines should have text that you can add, position, etc by double clicking the line. This is pretty standard in other flow tools.

    I think XD is great but you've somewhat limited the use case of it. even "prototype" mode misses the true need which is to be able to layout exactly how an application fits together and annotate why it goes from one screen to another.

  17. Default Transition Setting or Global Application of Transition Effect

    As a user who needs to present UX ideas quickly to stakeholders, I would like there to be a way for me to set a default transition setting of my choice at both the file and application level.

    I've found myself creating a complicated matrix of targets, only to realize that the last 20 I did (or was it 30?) have the application, default 'slide left' when yesterday, I had everything set up for my 0.1 second dissolve without an ease out.

    ALT:

    If not a preference setting, the ability to apply a transition globally to all targets.

    Thanks everyone.…

  18. Tile Background Images

    There needs to be an option, on Prototype mode, to "tile" background images.

    For example: this Adobe XD web page has a background image (or DIV) that repeats on the x-axis no matter how wide the browser window is (dark gray, horizontal top-bar).

    That feature would make the prototypes look as cloase as possible to what a web page would actually look in the wild.

    Thank you!

  19. Increase time delay trigger maximum to 60s

    Instead of having a fixed set of delayed times for a time trigger allow a designer to enter any time value in seconds.

    The maximum trigger time of 1 second is not sufficient and as the feature currently exists it is unnecessarily limited.

    If a maximum time must me added (I'm not sure that it does) it could be 60 seconds for more flexibility.

    I’ve updated the title to reflect your request. Please note that the current maximum is actually 5s, and you can type the number directly into the interaction popup.

  20. scale prototype to browser window

    Please give users the option of scaling the prototype to browser width instead of just a straight - "view actual size" fullscreen option. It makes prototyping useless if we can't fit the prototype to the browser window.
