    I am still desperate for this. When my project has lots of instances of very similar screens, seeing something in the preview really does not tell me what artboard it's on. I often find things that need to be fixed by clicking through my prototype, then once identified, I'm finding it very hard to find the artboard that needs to be corrected.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    How does this not have more votes?? This would be a huge time saver. I'd love to just context/right click in the preview window and select "Jump to Artboard".

    It would be great if you could link to a different position on same page (for jump links), or when navigating to another page to define the scroll position when that page loads. This is similar to "Maintain scroll position" (and certainly should not replace that feature!) but-- this would allow you to define the top of the "screen" in the viewport. This should work both for linking to a specific scroll position on a different page and also enable you to link to a different scroll position within the same page.

    Hi Divya,

    I'm running macOS Mojave 10.14.3.

    These assets are in my master document, so they're not linked from another file. I do have one file that links to these assets, but I was experiencing these performance issues before I had started linking to them.

    I just created a new simple file to see if I could reproduce it, and the performance was good even after I created enough components to cause the list to scroll. However, it seemed that once I created character styles that were included in my components that the performance started to slow down. I'm not 100% sure on this-- but it did seem related. I'll update you if I get more confident on this being the cause.

    In my real, original file, I started out by creating the character styles, and we have loads of them. So if that's related, it would explain why I was seeing the issue early on in my efforts.

    Hope this helps!

    While we wait for this, here's a workaround. You simply link up a component, and while in prototype mode you copy, and then select all the artboards where you want it pasted, and then paste. It pastes the component in place on all artboards at once with all prototype links intact. The only PITA part of this is that you have to remember to do that again every time you make a change, and if you have a different on-state visual for each link those would have to be updated per instance (or else maintain a different master component for each on-state.)

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    XD needs master pages, like in InDesign, but I imagine it a little simpler here. In InDesign, a page is either a master or a regular page, and they're stored separately. You have to turn a page into a master page, which I'd hope you don't have to do in XD. In XD, it would be great if any artboard could simply apply another page as its underlying image. You could manage it from a dropdown right by the artboard name-- something like, "Based on Page xyz". And then, if you're zoomed out far enough, maybe when you roll over that control, it might highlight the master page with a thick border, and any other pages based on it with a thinner border of the same color. A control to "Jump to Master" would help you easily find it in your sea of artboards when you need to make edits to the underlaying layer.

    This should not be considered an XD dead end.

    We definitely need the capability to have global navigation without having to hook it up on every single screen. However, I'm not sure that tying this to symbols is the right solution unless symbols get a big facelift.

    My symbols are a total mess because I work with other designers who work in separate XD files and often copy/paste designs between documents. Every time we do that, it creates new instances of symbols that are already in my original document. So I end up with 20 instances of the same symbol, and have no way to manage them. Managing the symbols in the cloud isn't a solution that will work for Enterprise customers that block cloud access.

    My guess is that Adobe hasn't implemented this yet due to performance concerns. I run into major performance issues in Sketch, and I'm always told that it would help if I didn't have multiple pages. The "infinite canvas" in XD is much more finite than in Sketch. But performance in XD is lightyears better, so I don't mind the limited canvas size. So-- if not having pages helps to force us into having manageable file sizes that perform well, then so be it. I do like the pages feature, and I'm sure I would use (and misuse) them if I had them. I just hope that Adobe doesn't compromise performance for this feature.

    As for panning around and looking unprofessional-- I just run a preview window on one monitor and run my XD designer on the other. I only share the preview window. Whatever artboard you click on shows up in the preview, so your client can see your updates realtime without all the clutter of you zooming and panning around. I love that the preview window stays on top even when working in the designer, so that if I'm not using multiple monitors I can still see the preview while making edits on another part of the screen.

    Vote up this idea too, as it specifies jumping to the artboard that's in your preview window, not just highlighting it.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Please please add this! I used to use InDesign before XD, and when I would run it and click through screens, it would show whatever screen I ended on when I exited... so I got really used to easily being able to find the page/artboard associated with what I was seeing in Preview mode. Simply a right-click on the preview window letting you "Jump to Artboard" would be great!

    Right click to reveal character style is a bit time consuming. I'd actually prefer for the character style to be listed in the Text panel on the right rather than jumping my asset panel around just because I selected something. It would be nice to see at a glance that something has a style assigned to it, without having to right click to discover it.

    Now, if you list it there, will there become an expectation that you can also change it from the right-hand side? Maybe. Kind of like how you can pick colors from either side (although those should be more integrated... but that's a different issue.) But-- at least being able to SEE it would be super informative.

    A weird thing is, you allow multiple assets with the same name, but not multiple assets with different names for the same style.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    This is also an issue with Character Styles. When creating a large design system, it's possible to want to specify the exact same character style for, say, Desktop L and for Tablet XL. To make those the same style makes it more difficult to change one of them down the line without also changing the other. It also breaks the naming convention because you'd have to put AND in the name to include all of the sizes that apply to that style.

    I DO like the protection in place when trying to create a style that already exists-- but it would be nice to just be notified rather than prevented from doing it.

    Adobe-- can you give us a comment on this one? Is it even being considered for the backlog?

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    When is this coming? Even if I could just get Find in the next update, it would be huge. It can be impossible to manually find all instances of a word in a large document. Of course, Find and Replace is necessary, but not having Find is crippling.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Please make this your next top priority now that fixed elements have been completed!

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Any hints on when this might be coming? It is essential to any text editing application.

    Patricia-- I export my artboards + notes to PDF all the time. Simply expand the width of each artboard to include the notes area before exporting. You can do this for all artboards at once by zooming out and selecting them all, so it only takes a few seconds to toggle between seeing your notes and hiding them. I tend to make a little note to myself off in the pasteboard somewhere with the size with and without notes so that it's not a guessing game each time I switch it.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Y8sy - Glad this hack helped you. I still use it every day. Wish we could ditch the hack soon and see a real solution built into the app. Relying on comments in prototypes won't work-- that's intended for conversation between your client, not for formal documentation. Not to mention, those of us who work for enterprise giants have the cloud blocked, so we can't use that feature anyway.

    I'm a Mac user, and don't use a Waycom. (Just impossible for a left-handed writer / right-handed mouser to make the switch to a pen without losing my mind re-learning keyboard shortcuts with the other hand!) So I don't have much to add on that.

    I think that annotations within the tool would be unrelated to which input method is used (mouse, touchpad, Waycom, etc.)

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Here's an updated workaround for annotations / documentation / callouts / etc. that explains how to show/hide all callouts at one time that overlay your design.

    Adobe Admins-- will you merge this with my previous idea? I didn't see a way to update the attached file on the other idea.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Brilliant Bekah! I updated the workaround document, but now can't figure out how to attach an updated version. Do I have to create an entirely new idea to update the attachment?

    What I found works best is instead of adjusting the transparency (which could allow you to accidentally select/move your callouts while they're hidden), instead I used the show/hide feature on the group within the symbol. Hiding the top-level symbol in the layers list only hides that instance. But if you hide the actual contents within the symbol it hides them all across the document.

    This has saved me a ton of time and headache. Thanks for the suggestion, Bekah.

    MaMaLy commented  · 

    Thanks Thomas! I totally agree that it would be better if it's a built in feature, but I couldn't wait for it if I was going to use XD for real projects. The reason I didn't use a separate page for my notes is because I like to quickly be able to switch between showing and hiding my notes. Sometimes I like to present a clean view that doesn't get cluttered with notes, and sometimes I want to be able to see the notes in the same view as the design while presenting. My workaround lets me make that switch simply by changing the width of every artboard (which can be done all at once while zoomed way out, so it's not a big deal.) The bigger struggle is hiding all on-screen callouts since there are no global layers in XD.
