      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.

      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.

                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.)

                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.

                  Scott-- Even if the person who originally created the file didn't use character styles, you can still use them to replace fonts across the board. You simply pick one of the text objects, add that character style, and then edit that character style with whatever new font you want. It will automatically replace all instances of the original font with the new one. Color replacements work the same way and have been a godsend for me, as our colors keep changing. It's a sweeping change, so this won't work if you want to change a font piecemeal. But if you want to change every instance of a font in your document it works beautifully. The best part is that you don't have to setup the document for it in the first place-- you can do it after the fact.

                        It also would be great if the option to "Highlight on Canvas" were enabled when you select multiple symbols on the panel.

                          Rather than a clickable PDF, I'd prefer to be able to export a clickable prototype file that could also demonstrate the scrolling and clickable fixed elements. I agree that publishing to an unknown cloud is problematic. Being able to export a fully functioning clickable prototype would address that concern for large enterprise customers. A clickable PDF would likely look like a hack, as the sticky footer would be static across the bottom of the viewport, blocking the content that sits underneath it.

                            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.

                              I agree!! This should have more votes! While I've come up with a workaround to attach my real annotations to my artboard by overlapping the object by one pixel, I still jot down meeting notes or labels on the pasteboard. When I need to move my artboards around, it's time consuming (and error prone) to not have the option to also select the items on the pasteboard.

                              When exporting a PDF, it's nice to just be able to select the artboards. So I'd suggest adding a special key (ctrl, alt, or cmd) while selecting if you want to select everything including items on the pasteboard.

                                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!

                                  Yes!! Since our prototypes run on the device with the cable attached, the cable gets in the way and is always overlapping my keyboard and touchpad. If I could run the prototype upside down on the device, the cable would point toward my monitors or I could even stand the phone up on it's top edge propped against something.

                                        I agree- I'm still seeing this issue. For example, make a simple icon for "stop recording" by putting a small square inside a circle. If you use the center align tools to put the square inside the middle of the circle, and then measure, (or rotate and then realign to test if the square moves) you'll find that the square isn't actually in the center of the circle. I believe this is due to attempting to snap objects to a grid (that the user doesn't have control over) and having issues with any objects that aren't perfect round pixel measurements. For example, I did this test with a 20px square inside a 50px circle and it worked perfectly. But when the square is 21.67, the alignment tools don't actually center it in the circle. It seems to center it to the nearest pixel, which is visibly off-center.
