  1. Import from Adobe Edge Animate (OAM) for animation design

    Support for .oam would mean that tricky interactive elements and animations could be built with other tools including InDesign, Edge Animate or Tumult's Hype.

    • Mini navigator view - Pan & tap to zoom window in/out

      Since the art boards can be very very large having a mini pan and tap to zoom in / out window possibly on the right bottom side to navigate elegantly through the entire art board space would be convenient I believe.

      as of now I have to use the little hand and move around on the art boards themselves in combination with the zoom out function.

      • Full screen web prototype view on mobile browser (hide browser chrome)

        after i've shared a prototype URL then i view it on my phone, is there a way to disable browser UI when viewing the prototype on mobile device? can you tuck away the browser chrome? it is a bit fussy and annoying trying to tap through a native app experience when i keep having to scroll around to get rid of the browser chrome. it feels clunky.

        thanks so much! apologies if this is a duplicate, but i can't find similar request anywhere.

          • Ability to design / Export JSX panels for other Adobe applications

            I would LOVE to be able to create simple UI layouts for Adobe JSX scripts.

              • Scroll to Anchor Link Target

                The anchor link that target the specific part of the page. This is the significant user experience on web usability where user can "back to top" or can navigate (i.e. from menu bar) to the specific sessions without the need to scroll through entire pages.

                • Some SVG gradients are missing

                  SVG gradients are not rendered correctly when importing this image in AdobeXD.
                  See the reference file with embedded bitmaps to see how it is rendered compared to how it should be rendered.

                      Can you tell us more about how you’d like this to work? Do you want XD to export image assets and insert them directly into the correct folders/filenames in an existing Xcode project? Or do you want XD to generate Objective-C / Swift code to create a brand new Xcode project?

                    • Dotted and dashed line/border styles

                      Need line/border styling as dotted and dash

                        We have started working on this.

                        The way we are thinking about this is to have 2 fields:
                        - Dash
                        - Gap
                        This enables dashed and dotted lines.

                        Let us know if you need more fields. For the reference: AI has 6. Our goal is to keep the things simpler.

                      • Share link to prototype subset (exclude some artboards when sharing)

                        Because we are often working with multiple dev teams on a single project it would be great to be able to select a specific path of actions and share them as a link. Example: share just the contact flow or the shopping cart flow.

                        The benefit of being able to see all screens and link to them is great. Being able to see and share a subset _as well_ would be awesome. We could focus on just sharing that specific interaction and the team it is being sent to wouldn't have to go through everything just to see the UX…

                        • Import animated SVG icons and buttons

                          Please add the option to import and use svg animated icons and buttons in the layout, with the animate on click option. This would make very easy to makeup prototypes of UI components.

                          • Lock all objects underneath current selection

                            An option for locking the objects underneath the selected object for locking could also be considered, which may help at certain instances.

                            While 'Cmd+L' locks individual object, 'Cmd+Shift+L' can be assigned to lock all the objects underneath the selected objects too.

                            • Dynamic link with other CC file formats - edit in Photoshop/Illustrator auto-updates in XD

                              It would be great to simply import psd files into XD through either 'file // import PSD', or, in photoshop, 'file // export to XD', without having to rework the files.

                              An example for this would be a user that is designing an app in photoshop and has around 15 artboards. It would be great if the user could simply import each artboard into XD to create a wireframe to show a client / colleague, whilst also continue to make amends to the artboards in photoshop.

                              This could involve having some kind of Dynamic link between Photoshop and XD, so…

                              • Export overview of all artboards: showing interaction flows, annotations, specifications

                                I would like to share my full document to my team in order to communicate all specifications I added. This would help them giving a bit more context to the prototype and also be able to see all the different states of a pattern to build.
                                Maybe save as a PDF file or also online?

                                • Design with Data

                                  I remember, I have seen this presentation at Adobe MAX 2015. Where we can use dummy / Sample data for content such as Name, city, country etc (Please also think to add lorem ipsum dummy paragraph if possible).

                                  I would love to know, is there any plan to integrate that concept in near future. Its a really great functionality and time consuming important feature for us.

                                  • Restrict to designing purely with CSS styles/properties, match browser's rendering appearance

                                    As has been noted for this to be a good web app it will need to fully embrace css and render it accurately.

                                    However some display capabilities would inevitably require special markup, complex css constructs, javascript etc... in development that would be beyond the scope of this program if this is to remain a pure design app.

                                    Therefore it would be useful to tag objects or artboards to display in strict mode - exactly according to css properties - or to display in lets say design mode to allow freeform placement of objects which would require additional markup in development…

                                    • Visible preview of invisible object (no opacity or fill) when dragging / moving / resizing

                                      If an object's opacity is set to zero and you then 'alt-drag' it, there's no preview of the new object's edges, so you can't see what you're alt-dragging. Illustrator solved this by using the object's 'Outline mode' preview when alt-dragging.

                                        Resize/move feedback for invisible shapes definitely could be improved, and we are tracking that issue. As a workaround, you can toggle the fill or stroke on for a moment, adjust the shape, and then toggle it back off.

                                        If you’re using an invisible rectangle to define a hit area for Prototyping mode, you may also be interested in upvoting https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12931899-actual-hotspots, which would let you more easily define interaction hotspots that don’t match up exactly with the size & shape of any of your visible artwork.

                                        It will be nice I can use that 200/2 = 100 directly in a numbered field just like any other Adobe App. (/ and - and * and +)

                                        • Global/Master artboard templates (pin objects across all artboards)

                                          1. Ability to have a single object (or group) break out of its artboard and cross multiple artboards within a single prototype. The simplest use case is the creation of a global navigation bar that spans across multiple screens. This object's interactive elements would also work across multiple screens as well, and any edits to this object would update across the rest of the screens.

                                          2. Easy interaction management and editing. Also provides consistency with consistent elements within an experience.
