  1. More default component states (on-click, on-tap, on-mousedown, visited, on-focus)

    FINALLY there's a hover state on components! GREAT!

    However I quickly ran into a limitation. When the user touches a button or clicks it with the mouse/trackpad, the button needs an "on tap" or "on click" state that very briefly changes a button's appearance to give the visual feedback "your click or touch was detected".

    So now that you have HOVER please add ON CLICK/TAP ort whatever you want to cal it.

    Basically the component state changes for a definable amount of time before the destination or next state is triggered.

    While you're at it, how's about looking at some…

  2. Preview in device chrome

    My idea is to have a real looking or clay mockup like device frame when viewing prototypes like Invision studio is planning to do!

  3. Desktop Preview: switch between screen sizes (desktop, mobile, ...)

    If you create an artboard and make responsive versions it would be a useful feature when you could connect the different screen sizes of that artboard (desktop, tablet landscape, tablet portrait, mobile) and than show buttons in the preview window to switch between this screen sizes.

  4. Add an HTML/CSS element for interactivity

    It would be amazing if we could have the ability to insert a "placeholder" box which allows the input of HTML/CSS code to create an interactive element. For example; Drop down fields, accordions etc.

  5. Preview without window frame

    It would be nice to be able to hide the window frame on the Preview window, e.g. when I design for Windows on Windows I would like to be able to view artboards as if they're a window in the OS.

  6. Ability to view team prototypes

    Ability to view team prototypes. Similar to how you can view team assets. So that I as a creative director, or other team members can quickly find and reference prototypes completed by other team members

  7. Display artboard name in Preview

    When in 'Prototype mode > 'Preview', it would be really nice to show (or indicate) on the top where now is a line of text, which artboard you're at while tapping and clicking between the flow.

    When you work with multiple artboards and you suddenly you find say typo or false interaction, it's really difficult to go back to that specific artboard after you've left the Preview mode.

    I know you can do this...

    Cheers and thanks!

  8. Interactive Slider

    I'd like to be able to prototype a functional slider. I can currently achieve this effect my duplicating the entire artboard and switching out the slide content, but the load time when clicking through the slider is incredibly slow, and can be off-putting to clients. Also, utilizing this method means that if the design is altered even minutely, I have to delete all the duplicated artboards, then duplicate the main artboard again, replace the slide contents, and prototype it all again as well. It can be incredibly time consuming. I've attached a screenshot of a recent one-page website that had…

  10. Animate blur effects

    When using background blur or object blur, I want to be able to animate blur radius using Auto-Animate. Currently it will animate the position, size, & opacity of an object but it doesn't animate its blur.

  11. Emojis in texts are not shown on prototypes

    Hello, we sometimes use emojis on our designs for increasing our conv. rates, giving the design a warm feeling at the same time.

    But when surfing the prototype, user can not see the emojis, so our prototypes are not exactly what we expect from them.

    Keep up the great work with XD

    Regards

  12. Display shared prototype in device chrome

    Ability to view or record the prototype based on the artboard that was used. Since there's already a list of specific artboards (iphonex, ipad, android etc.).

    The idea is when you publish a prototype there would be an option if you want it to be view on a device. Same as when recording it.

  13. Cross linking prototypes

    When working on large projects it becomes hard to drag prototype links when you have 80 plus pages.

    It would be great to be able to link from one xd item to another in a separate prototype file. So you can break large files into usable chunks. maybe have tabs within the artboard.

  14. Form element validation

    It would be of great value to be able to have error handeling this would create a more realistic prototype and scenarios for user testing.

    Example 1:
    If you add a text field and set it to an email field it should trigger an error when a user doesn't fill it in correct.

    Example 2:
    If you add a text field and set it to a mandatory field it should trigger an error when a user skips the field or presses a submit button.

    At this moment there are no application I know of that have this feature and if…

  15. Run multiple prototypes simultaneously (multiple Preview windows in desktop app)

    I'm about to do a focus group - and we have a Mobile AND Web prototype we're running.

    Right now, I can only "play" one prototype at a time - Making side-by-side comparison impossible. (So if I click the play button on my Web prototype, it shows up, but when I click the play button on my Mobile prototype - it closes the web one to open the mobile one).

    I'd like to be able to have both running simultaneously - so we could compare interactions "live" as it were.

  16. Highlight/show in Design view the current artboard displayed in Preview window

    PainPoint:

    As you design more and more complex prototypes it gets really easy to forget where the Artboard is for the part of the flow you are at in the Design Previewer

    Solution:
    Highlight which Artboard it currently showing in the previewer so that you can make changes faster.

  17. Pressed State preset

    It would be great to aslo have a preset "pressed state" wich wil trigger an animation on the same basis as the preset "hover state" but applied to a tap trigger :
    - Hover in = start animation
    - Hover out = reverse animation

    So, for pressed state, it would go as such :


    • Key/Tap press = start animation

    • Key/Tap release = reverse animation

    It would also be great to enable a "Long Press/Tap" trigger by creating a new trigger or adding the possibility to set a tap duration on tap trigger.

  18. Auto-animate stroke dash and gap values

    Currently the stroke width is animated with auto-animate,
    would be cool also to get the "Trim Paths"-style (After Effects) stroke
    length animation for creating animations for outlined illustrations.

  19. Auto Animate support through symbols

    The transition animation of shapes from one screen to the other are not supported when they are symbols.

    The animation is smooth if the items are grouped but if these are symbols the animation seems to break.

    In the example the bottom nav bar is a symbol in one and a grouped element in the other

  20. Scroll to Comment in Prototype

    Especially on long artboards that viewers may have seen before, it would be useful to click on a comment and have it scroll to the comment's location, directed attention to the relevant portion of the page that needs to be addressed. Currently when you hover on a comment in the side bar, it highlights the comment on the artboard, but if the comment is not in the visible area, this is not very useful.
