    Although Adobe XD does not currently provide scrollbars to navigate the view of your content, there are several different options to pan the viewport around:

    • If you have a trackpad, use two fingers to pan (if you have an Apple Magic Mouse, you can use one finger to pan)
    • Hold down Space Bar and drag the mouse
    • Use the mouse scroll wheel to pan vertically, and use Shift + scroll wheel to pan horizontally

    When I'm running user tests I have to tell my participants that there is content further down the page - the lack of a scroll bar indicates to them that there is not. If they do not have a mouse wheel, I then have to explain to them that they must hold down the space bar and click/drag with the mouse in order to reach that content. The feedback on this functionality is invariably negative. There you go Adobe, I have consistent user feedback that breaking totally standard UI patterns is a bad idea and you should rethink. I will send you my invoice for consulting...
