Hey @XDTeam. How come you are not working on implementing nested overlays when it is:
- an open community request since 2018
- it's a crucial interaction in modern applications
You've seen this in many apps too. It's also baked in into iOS. For instance, here is an use case:
1. The user is on a screen where she triggers an overlay interaction (the screen slides in from the bottom)
2. The user clicks inside this overlay and triggers another slide in, the second overlay. This one might come again from the bottom, from top, doesn't matter.
3. Then the story continues for the third time and so on...
As it's well known, this is still not possible with XD. I think Figma does it and they call it "Overlay Swap", but I'm not an active Figma user.
Before someone comments this can be done with component states, that is unfortunately only true in limited scenarios because only auto animate ans dissolve transitions are supported between states. Overlay transitions are not supported.
Then there is a question of usability, while even if overlays could in future be achieved with component states it would be unpractical to overload components with so many states and so many possible scenarios of transition and inherited content.
Overlays belong on their own artboards. They behave in a way as components, where you call them up when they are needed. We just need a way to have multiple of them stack up on each other.

We think you’re going to really, really dig the plugin integrations we’re making available later this year :)

Reopening the feature request, based on feedback.

Sorry for the false alarm! Someone pointed out to me that I interpreted the request incorrectly. While you can now select objects both in the artboard and on the pasteboard, you cannot yet select objects on the pasteboard and complete artboards themselves.
Please note that stacks is a feature that is intended to be used at design time, and does not dynamically shift the stack in preview. I’m going to rewrite this particular request to be more precisely about the latter suggestion.
