    Agreed - Isolation mode in XD is not "sticky" enough - it's too easy to bounce out of isolation mode. In the last 3 hours of working on a fairly standard layout with components and groups, I have been double-clicking constantly to bounce back into a nested group etc. It's so easy to bounce out of isolation mode - for example just deselecting an item (so you can see the result w/o bounding box) pops you all the way out. This is especially annoying when dealing with multiple levels of nesting!

    There's no need to re-invent the wheel here. The design pattern for Isolation Mode established by AI is fine for most of us UX professionals, so just emulate that and I'll bet most users will be quite comfortable with the solution.

    Another typical use-case is checkboxes within a tabular repeat grid - imagine a "batch select" control on a tabular row. At any rate, you'll likely want to mock up a table with a variety of rows where that control is "checked" vs other rows where it is "unchecked". This should be a no-brainer with a component that has an "ON" and a DEFAULT (off) state.

    Just to clarify how it works currently – artboards in the PDF are currently listed based on looking at your artboard layout on XD’s canvas in “reading order." The PDF page order will start with artboards in the topmost row left to right, then move on to the next row of artboards below that (starting with the leftmost artboard again), etc.

    I'm definitely with Tim Rice on his implementation idea. In fact, I assumed this was the case... because I just don't see any other reason to be able to re-order the artboards within the Layers panel.

    One of the thing the XD team has done well is allow flexibility in creating new artboards - and I have already found that different designers will have their own logic for structuring and ordering their artboards.

    Having another "canonical" order that is not tied to layout would allow finer-grained control over the PDF output without sacrificing the designer's freedom to lay things out as they see fit.

    Let's make this happen. Right now I have a large PDF file that I'm using to import my boards into an InDesign customer spec document, and I'm finding the the page order changes, which requires me to re-import a lot of my assets rather than just updating the Link in InDesign. Total pain.

    I feel like this should be a hotkey, like holding down CMD/CTRL while in Preview mode to reveal all clickable regions.

    One significant use case is when previewing prototypes to clients. Often you have to follow a "script" and it helps to know what your next options are for a smooth presentation.

    Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.
