        Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, UserVoice works best when you file one ticket per request, and you have four great ones here. All of them are already in the database and can be upvoted:

      • Handle large prototypes

        I don't really have an idea for this, by that I mean a solution. All I have is my current problem: I have a very large prototype with A LOT of artboards, because this feature is quite big. Problem is, managing all the links between all the artboards and different elements is becoming challenging, and it's becoming harder and harder for me to manage what should be linked to what and how.

        Been trying to Google this a bit, but haven't found much to be honest.

        • Have all interactive gestures beside click

          Allow all of the javascript events besides click. One should be able to be mouseover, mouseout, double click, right click, hover, swipe left/right, swipe up/down, pinch/zoom and touch events to work on desktop and mobile (tablet, smartphone) along with watch and smart tv.

          • Advanced prototype

            you should make more prototype options... If you want this to be a great app look at some of the features in wix.com or ai2. I think like in ai2 you should use a block editor for anyone who wants to use it because it will open a lot of options. Also' look at all the wix features and see what you can add into the designing of this.

              • More animations and better prototype recording

                I think there is an opportunity for improvement in creating a longer list of more transitions and animations between screens, and hover effects etc in prototype mode. One of my main reasons for recording a prototype in action was to show the footage on my portfolio, but I found that I had to do several takes due to having to get my mouse in order. I think a countdown clock before recording and the ability to edit your 'footage' would also be so so helpful!

                  Thanks for your suggestions! We’ve had a number of improvements in our October release, and it sounds like you had 4-5 different suggestions in this one ticket. it would really help us out if you could split up the different suggestions into individual tickets so that we could better merge them in with other similar ones.

                  • Get CC notification on comments

                    It would be great to have a notification in the CC when a comment is made on the prototype. Bonus points for a blip on the same comment when opening prototype!

                    • Prototype features

                      New functions for the prototype mode.

                      I have had a lot of trouble convincing clients and within the development team how the screens work, which I believe will be solved with some features initially.

                      - Anchor Point
                      Select the object that will start the action and select a target object, that is, you can create animation inside an artboard.

                      - Add Elements
                      When you perform the action on a source object, you can insert a new element in a selected area.

                      - Change states
                      Clicking on the source object can change a color or background image of some other element

                      • Some more interactive stuffs

                        Hi XD Team,

                        I like the XD app for my mac it's so intuitive.

                        I'ld like to see and use few stuffs out from my head.

                        Here is my quick description.

                        - Fixing one section for e.g., stick the top bar or bottom bar of mobile UI --> scroll the screen to - n - fro.
                        - Grouping few section like previous point ^
                        - pop up screens - OS specific
                        - sliding windows
                        - adding some music loops with editing options (LoL) exporting as presentation.
                        - remote connections as in PS - previewing with out connecting through cable

                        I…

                        • awsome for new users! But you should add some more features like some of them in sketch>

                          While prototyping more virtual options would have worked great. But again this is very good platform for learners or beginers.

                            This is not really an idea.. But the strong request to -fix- the prototype view. This is just mind boggling.

                              When deleting a frame with connections
                              there should be an option to delete all those connections or change the links leading to that frame to broken or standby links. Also displaying those links as a different color would be necessary.

                              • Prototyping improvements needed

                                I've got over a hundred views on multiple projects. For this issue whenever I segue any elements during prototyping the list name of the views which comes up is not alphabetized. This becomes very cumbersome to find the exact name of the view I need to segue which is a real hassle and as a result wastes a bit of time.
                                Also it would be a great time saver to be able to segue the same elements found on multiple views. For example if I want to segue an add button to a particular view and this elements appears on…

                                  Thanks for your feedback! We prefer that the inputs to UserVoice be granular so that people can upvote specific issues. I see three requests in this idea, two of which are already submitted. Please do upvote these:

                                  The third one seems to be a bug, as our arrange feature should work when prompted. Please note that there may be objects that were drawn or placed in the middle of your Z-order. You might want to open the layers panel (Cmd-Y) and see if your object is actually moving up and down when you use the keyboard shortcut methods.

                                  Thanks again for your feedback!

This is very bad design experience and lowers productivity. I recommend providing a feature to break apart each individual label that is spaced more than 1 pixel apart. Or providing a hit spot to place over each label and linking the hit spots, as in Axure.

                                  • Menu Expansion- Drag & Drop

                                    I really like the idea of Xd but it needs to be quicker to use.

                                    Can you expand the existing menu so that it contains common website/app elements that can be simply dragged and dropped into our prototypes? You already have this within some of your other programs.

                                    Eg Drag and droppable:
                                    expandable/collapsable menus, form elements, scrolling effects, mouse effects, states, swatches, text options(colour, kerning, header 1, 2 etc), modal windows, buttons, carousel, jumbotron, image effects, lists etc.

                                    Also a link to cc libraries & assets would be great.

                                    I think expanding the menu like this would save a lot…

                                        Since it’s been a number of months since we requested more information about this feature, I’m closing this. Please do re-file if you think this is something you’re really interested in, and please provide more information when re-filing the issue.

                                        1) My company is adamantly against allowing us use any tool to show intellectual property on the web, so I second the ideas to be able to export to a PDF. In order to use it for wire framing and prototyping purposes it would need to be a clickable/interactive PDF. The ability to pick and choose what we show would be helpful.

                                        2) Love the previewing and recording, however it'd be more multi-function if, when previewing, you could gray-out the background - or alternatively allow recording the artboard in full screen mode.

                                        3) Record Audio. Face would be awesome too,…

                                        • Dim background when preview window opens (presentation mode)

                                          It would be a neat feature to be able to dim the artboards in the background when viewing prototypes so as you focus on the preview window.

                                          This could be achieved by having a button next to the record button to toggle background on or off. The color of te icon changes to show it is selected.

                                          It would be especially good for when you are recording a video for example, so that your are not distracted by your artboards in the background.
