ANNOYING BUG: Prototype wires not showing when selecting artboards
The wires on objects on artboards do not show when selecting the artboard.
You have to select the object itself.
I prefer if I do not have to deep-select to see all the connections set up on an artboard.
I want it to be like it was initially; selecting and artboard shows all prototype wires.
This bug has been fixed in XD 21.0 (Live).
Please check prototype wiring of artboard and object levels.
Now you can see an artboard which shows inbound and outgoing connections on selection.

With the new prototype update to XD it has become harder to view the prototype connections between artboards. I must select individual elements to view where they connect and if there is a component or group, such as an app nav bar, I have to continue to click into the group to view the prototype connection.
I know that users may want to connect whole artboards so my feature request is for a button to show all prototype connections of anything contained within an artboard.

This! Please bring this back as soon as possible. Being able to see all connections to and from a selected artboard and it's contents, is critical to know if the workflow is complete. "Command / Ctrl A" is not an option when dealing with hundreds or thousands of connections, all intersecting and twisting across the canvas. This has made prototyping a nightmare in recent weeks (see attached). Please hotfix this.

Yes please bring this feature back. Users shouldn't have to Select All just to see what is happening with a single artboard
In a previous version, I could select an artboard and see all connections from that artboard. This feature was recently removed with the new version of XD.
Now I need to use "Command A" to see all connections to ALL artboards. This can get crazy with more than a few artboards.
Please bring back the feature that allows me to select a single artboard and see all connections to that artboard.

Hi Jonathan, when we can expect this future update? I have a large ongoing project and now I'm confused myself when navigating connections. Especially with the current behavior when copying in design mode does not copy links.
$5/hour outsourced code quality, isn't it Adobe?
This is so idiotic situation, we have been waiting for the MOST desirable update (downgrade actually).
OH, finally I found available update today!
Prototyping links has not been fixed..
What a hell are you doing, Adobe XD team?
How to get rid of this hell??? (see attached)

Links only show when selecting all artboards. If I want to see all the links to/from an artboard I have to click on every object to find them. Not very practical.
So why not just use CTRL+A to see all links? Because my XD files have thousands of objects ( XD has no pages ) and it's slow and confusing.
It worked beautifully before. Please restore the behavior of selecting an artboard to see all incoming/outgoing links.

I just updated to a new version and there is nothing. Seems like it's easier to mess things up than return everything as it used to be. It's so annoying, please do something.
Where is the update??
It wasn't in the latest xd update. it's getting really annoying to prototype on my project. How long until the bug is fixed ?
I got the same error. Some of my overlays are missing, and the fact that I can no longer select an artboard and see the wires coming out is horrible. XD, please revert this!
Ver. 126.96.36.199 - All interactions on artboard not visible at the same time as before. Sample attached has four links that don't show unless you select each item. It used to show as in your own user guide https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/create-prototypes.html

Yooo! GUUUYS!!! copy pasting interaction flows gets messed up because of this bug. It no longer copies the links on the objects themselves. Pleeeaase FIX!!!! GEEEZUS!!!
Deal breaker fo me.
How long it is going to fix this bug, it is over 2 weeks since we report.
It is really annoying to collaborate with my team without this functionality.
Please hurry up

Thanks for your report. Would it be possible to share a video (.gif/.mov) file to look into the exact problem.
Are you able to view the wires when using Ctrl+A or Cmd+A keys ?
After last update the overlay wires are gone, impossible to see the position of the overlay and when I try to recreate the overlay selecting the overlay element makes the artboard that is positioned before the overlay artboard selected. Totally messy. The whole prototype section after last update is terrible, nothing works.
Can't see connections / wires after last update. The prototype is running but impossible to actually see the flow in XD like before cause all the wires are gone. When I select one or more artboard nothing happens, still can't see the wires.
XD Team, please bring back wires visualization as before.
After June update all my connectors / links in my prototypes are deleted. Prototypes play but with no connectors. Overlay feature in prototype mode doesn't work anymore either. It's a mess. W10.
