Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!
I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.
For those of you waiting for the feature to come through, let me offer a bit of help. You can click on the blue icon in the bottom-righthand corner of the screen to close the left panel. This still leaves the right panel open, but at least it makes 1/2 of the unusable screen...usable!

Vlad has an additional question in the comments.
And by the way, I recreated this error today on a much newer Windows machine. So I've experienced this issue on two separate Windows laptops over the course of more than a year.
Oh gosh, I created this ticket over a year ago! I have no idea what project this was. But I tried recreating the problem with all file types on XD, and I got the attached error. I got it after exporting an artboard as a single PDF file, opening it in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (version 19.012.20040), then updating the artboard in XD and attempting to export it again as a PDF. I couldn't find the version for XD, but I made sure it was the most up-to-date one.
Sorry, I never saw Vlad’s comment until Elaine’s response! It’s a Windows machine.
For the record, I only saw that I had a response because I got an email, saying Elaine responded. Had no idea about the comment (whoops).
Yes, I love it! As long as that file can still be accessed offline like it is now, that’s perfect!
Thank you for your quick response! I apologize, the tech support individual I spoke to this morning adviced I save 2 copies, so I was misinformed.
Yes, a link would be perfect for my organizational needs! When you say “store next to all your assets,” where would that be? I was specifically thinking about Creative Cloud Files, which works like a Drive in File Explorer of my Windows machine.

As a software engineer and a UX designer, I can assure you that exporting these designs to HTML is a bad idea. Hear me out.
At first, I thought that Muse's ability to do so was amazing! I didn't see a point in having both programs separately, rather it would be best to combine them into one. But as I continued by software engineer studies, it came to make sense. Machines cannot write code in an understandable way for humans. Therefore, it's very difficult to manage in the future when humans get their hands on the code. And overall, writing code to write code is extreeeeeeeemely difficult. You're literally doing code inception. It's a program within a program. Sure, maybe blocks of code would help, but converting the entire project into HTML would just be way too much.
And of course, this code would have no way of implementing database languages such as MySQL, since XD doesn't support databases anyway. Even if they did eventually implement some database support, it would be impossible guess how much space people need for their databases for these prototypes.

You might also be interested in symbol states, which should enable you to do things like dropdowns: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13031871
Right! It's a great addition, but if you watch the very video that Adobe posted to demonstrate the new Overlay functionality, you'll see that it covers the header. Looks fine on a mobile design, but not so much on a PC design.

Reopening the feature request, based on feedback.
You can currently add an object to a symbol by cutting, selecting an object inside the symbol, and then pasting. You can also enter and exit group edit context really quickly by double clicking on a symbol or group. However, you’re right in that you currently can’t drag directly into a symbol. I’ll repurpose this request to focus on that behavior.

Edit: I just realized that we can set the view to 100% when creating and in the design specs. I'm editing this request to include the view options on the preview mode.
I recently fully designed a system on XD, featuring 73 art boards. Once I finished, my team and I began developing it with the help of XD's design specs. Unfortunately, due to the fact that none of the previews presented the project in actual size, I did not realize that everything I designed was too big.
I did not have the time to redesign the entire project, so there was a lot of guesswork involved, and the project lost a lot of its consistency.
When previewing these artboards, we need to be able to view them in actual size in order to avoid this issue.
I’ll leave this one open to see if others feel the same way. Thanks for your feedback!
Also, if I select 2 shapes with shift + click, there becomes only one selection box encompassing those two shapes. The problem with this is that it looks like you also selected anything else that is within that selection box. This can become very confusing. I'd post a picture, but that isn't an option for comments. I'd recommend putting selection boxes around each item (reference PowerPoint for an example).
So I tried it, and it does what I want, but that's counterintuitive. Typically, you use shift if you're selecting everything between your first click and a second one (such as all of the cells between cell A and Z). Ctrl, however, us typically used to select individual, unrelated objects, whether they're cells or shapes in PowerPoint. Not sure if this differs with Mac, but it's definitely the norm with Windows.

I'd like for my users, when given the UI in prototype mode, to be able to type in the text boxes.
We have point text, which will resize the way you want, but doesn’t flow the text, and area text, which flows text, but doesn’t resize text the way you want. I’m going to keep this open as a suggestion, as it’s quite nice, but I wanted to make sure you’re aware of the two types of text we already support.
This was highly debated and designers are split on whether they want this or not. We may provide a preference in the future.
