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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Waze runs upside down. There has to be a way.

    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.
