  1. 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.

    • More supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes

      Please provide more supported languages on Voice-Based Prototypes. I think that this is a fantastic feature.

        • Prototype comments link to location in design

          It would be nice if you clicked on a comment from a prototype that you go to the location the comment is attached to in the design. Mostly useful wen you have large designs with many comments.

          • Keyboard triggered transitions: 508 Compliance for Navigating Shared Prototypes without a mouse.

            To meet 508 compliance standards for our company internal users/editors/designers must be able to navigate the UI graphics without a mouse. This means using tab, enter, arrows, or whatever. It would be helpful to set multiple options for transitions so a user can tap or tab. This would mean that symbols on an artboard that are wired to another artboard can be selected without a mouse by hitting tab and enter. Symbols could be ordered as well within an artboard (similar to the "home" button) so they are selected by "tab" in a specific order.

              • Position Overlay Relative To Object

                Requesting the ability to position an overlay relative to another object rather than the artboard. If you move the anchored object, so does the overlay.

                If you position an overlay to align with an object, and then later that object moves, now you need to remember to also move the overlay's position.

                    Jonathan’s comment: Hi Rene, if you copy paste objects or the entire artboard in prototype mode, we do copy the interactions as well. I’m sorry this is not working for you.

                    Can you confirm if this doesn’t work in prototype mode? Please help me with your XD version and Operating System version.

                      This is expected behavior, as the Android browser will add the overlay without our control. You can either accommodate for this by shortening your viewport OR by using the Adobe XD application to load your document, which will show in full screen. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

                    • Minimize text box and add "read more"

                      I'm looking for a easy way to create a expandable text box with the click of a button (e.g read more)

                      This is often seen in app stores and in news articles that that are behind a pay wall.
                      With the text box minimized you should be able the see the content below (screenshots etc) but when you expand the content should be moved further down. Maybe this is already possible but I can't find the feature either in the software or in a tutorial. Of course I can build this my own with animations, but shouldn't there be a…

                        Thanks for your feedback. Right now, the way to do this is using auto-animate, which will enable you to move other objects out of the way. I’m guessing you’re looking for a tool that will enable you to automatically reflow the rest of your page when you expand a section, is that right?

                                Can we have a prezi style of design where we can focus on each wireframe individually from the entire flow, this is separate from the prototype... it simetimes usefule to explain the total screens designed and individually zooming into them.

                                • Show/Hide links on prototype mode, only selected art-boards to see the links

                                  (i.e if the user wants to explore the links only on selected artboard)

                                  This could be very helpful when I have more than 40-100 artboard at the same time, and on prototype mode would be more easy to identify which artboards are connected to which?

                                  Thanks

                                  • setting height for header & footer

                                    maybe I'm missing something and it is implemented, but I'd really like to set a height for the header and footer on mobile.

                                    setting a height for the display seems irrelevant.

                                    hopefully this will be added soon, I still have to use Marvel for my prototypes right now.

                                    • Multiple asset linking, replace with symbol + pixels

                                      I'm doing my best to move from Sketch to XD.

                                      There are however some game changers holding me back at the moment.

                                      1. Replace with symbol - the ability to click on any item and many items all at once and to be able replace it/them with a symbol all at the same time. It's important to note that this symbol should maintain any prototype links it has been assigned.

                                      2. Multiple asset linking (Prototyping). In prototype mode, the ability to click on multiple items/assets across all artboards all at the same time and to select their target artboard/page/link once…
