Sorry to hear there is some confusion. I believe your issue is related to the manner in which you connected artboards in your prototype. XD decides which artboards to upload as follows:
- If none of the artboards are connected with wires, ALL artboards will be uploaded. Users can transition between artboards using the arrow buttons on the screen or on a keyboard.
- If one more more artboards are connected, XD uploads only those artboards that are connected to the home artboard.
For example, if you have a design file with artboards named:
And artboard One is connected to artboards Three and Five – the prototype or spec you share will contain artboard One, Three and Five. Since artboards Two and Four aren’t connected to the home artboard, they will not be included in the prototype or spec.
The first time you connect an element or artboard to another, the source artboard is automatically set as the home artboard. This is also the first screen you will see when your prototype loads.
You can change the home artboard by clicking on the home artboard icon next to any artboard when it is selected in prototype mode.
In your example, I suspect that you are only getting a subset of your artboards because they aren’t all connected to the flow from the home artboard. You can address this by adding more wires, or removing them all.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, please comment here and we can explore further.AdminJacob Goldstein (Admin, Adobe) commented
Would it be possible for you to send your XD file to AdobeXDSharingSupport@adobe.com so that we can investigate further?
To be clear, you have found an artboard in your file that is not being uploaded as part of your prototype or spec AND is connected to the flow from the home artboard? To be connected to the home artboard, you should be able to trace the click it would take a user to access that artboard.
For example, artboard one has a button that is linked to artboard three, and artboard three has a button that is connected to artboard six.
One area that we have seen confusion in the past is that someone has wires such that artboard one is connected to artboard three, and artboard six is connected to artboard three. In this situation, artboard six is not in fact connected to the flow from artboard one, as there is no way to get to artboard six from artboard one. Is it possible that your design falls into this scenario?
If you can share your XD file we can confirm what's going on and identify if there is a bug in XD or not. At the moment, I am unable to reproduce the behavior you are seeing.
