    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your feedback. I see your point about "having to explain to the engineers which artboards are from which sections".

    Is the main concern of your developers about not being able to see the flow fully (because Grid view is currently showing 1 level deep linked screens), or is the concern more around Designer not being able to use design specs and communicate something around a group of artboards?

    If it is about the first one, then we can show the flow from a given artboard to another linked artboard and then extend this capability to see further links below in Grid view.

    But if the concern is about second point, then one way to achieve grouping will be by - naming your artboards within a group with similar names, and then filtering them using the search capability in Grid view. 

    Please note that we are hearing all your feedback and want to hear your thoughts on this.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the connections information between artboards, did you try clicking on the "Linked Screen" icons that shows up on artboard cards in Grid view? This will show connection information from a given artboard.

    Does this not help you get the information that you are mentioning here?

    We are open to hear the use case and see how can we improve Grid view and give you that information more effectively.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Can you please help me understand how were you getting the relative size information in earlier UX flow view, and what were you using that information for?

    We are monitoring all the feedback and want would like to see if we can enhance the Grid view in some way to provide you with the necessary information.

    Thanks!

    Can you check with your IT admin if 'Sharing' is enabled for Adobe XD? If yes, then they will have to allow sharing from Admin console for you to be able to publish.

    For some reason you were able to publish it since Oct 2018 release, but it might have stopped because of the Sharing restrictions enabled by your admin.

    Thanks!

    We are sorry that your colleague is not able to open Design Spec link.
    By looking at this error, we are suspecting that the original link has got deleted somehow.

    1. To confirm this, can you try opening https://assets.adobe.com/links in your web browser and login using your Adobe ID?
    2. Under the 'Published' section, you should see a list of all links that you have published from XD.
    3. Can you see the Design Spec link that you are talking about?

    Thanks!

    Message from Arun:

    While I see your point about browser chrome still present when viewing a prototype on mobile web browser, I am not sure I understood the issue with performance.

    Can you elaborate more on why you felt the performance of viewing prototypes on mobile web is slower? Any specific examples that you can share will help us dig into this further and improve the experience.

    On the viewing experience as well, we have recently made some improvements where-in maximum real estate is now used to show the prototype in its glory. Browser chrome on most browsers go away after some time allowing you to see the full height prototype. Please give this a try and let us know your feedback. I am eager to hear more from you.

    While Zoom control is not currently present in the prototype web, but I feel that you are seeing the design fitting in fully in the browser and not showing up width wise? Is that accurate?

    Is it possible for you to share the prototype link with us to take a look and confirm it?

    1. To make your artboard that is large in size (such as 1920x5950) span across the width of browser, you should set "Scrolling" property of the artboard to "vertical" in the properties inspector within Adobe XD.
    2. After setting it as vertical, set the viewport height accordingly to define a page fold for your design.
    3. If you do not want to specify page fold, then set the viewport height value same as your artboard height.

    This will fit the entire width of your design to the size of web browser and allow you to scroll vertically like a web page.

    Hope this helps?

    Thank you for submitting your request to us. I agree with you that this is an important use case.

    Regarding the already created links - I am assuming these are all Private links that you are talking about?
    Please note that the link that has been created will continue to exist even if the agency who had originally created does not renew the license. As long as you and your team members can login using the Adobe ID to which you were invited originally on that link, you can continue to open and view it.

    Link will only cease to exist if the owner of that link (user who had originally created it), goes ahead and manually deletes it.

    Having said that, I am curious to know if you are also wanting to become the owner of that link and would want to re-publish/update design from original XD document to that same link?

    Thanks!

    Greetings:

    The video linked shows content being resized to fit based on browser window size. This is working as designed.

    FWIW, overlays are static and will not move based on scroll position.

    Is it possible that what you’re seeing is working as expected but not as you’d like it to?

    Thanks!

    This setting of Scrolling:None being set when you choose a custom artboard in XD is not new, and has been the same since the beginning. This setting was not getting respected while viewing in browser earlier and hence you might not have noticed it.

    Do you think the default setting in case of Custom artboards should also be set to Vertical?
    In what scenarios would you actually want to set the scrolling to None?

    AdminArun Kaza (Adobe) (Product Manager, Adobe) commented  · 

    Do you expected the design to fit width wise at all times, and scroll vertically (artboard height will not be fit into the browser height)?

    While creating your artboards, have you set "Scrolling" setting in properties inspector to "None"? If yes, then recommend you to change it to "Vertical". Make sure the viewport value shown is same as your artboard's height.
    If you publish again, you will see the desired result in browser.

    The reason it was getting fit earlier is because you have set Scrolling to None. We have to respect this setting and fit the entire artboard into the available viewport.

    Let me know if this helps?

    Thanks!

    Hi Rob,

    Thank you for submitting your request to us. We have heard about this in the past and I agree with you that being able to create a group of people to share prototypes is a lot easier to manage.

    Please note that we have added this into our backlog and will work on it based on the prioritisation and number votes for this request.

    Best!
    Arun

    Can you share your email id with me? We have seen in the past that this error 44:47 might be encountered because of some service blocking for some email domains. I will get that checked with the right team and get back to you.

    Thanks!

    Hi Amy,

    To understand more about your issue, can you share the .XD file or the published prototype link with us?
    You can choose to send it privately to me at: arunk@adobe.com

    Thanks!

    Hi All,

    We have provided a fix for this issue recently in XD 12.0 release. Request you to give it a try, and access your prototype links on mobile devices again. You should now see the designs taking full width available, and let it overflow vertically if height is greater than available height of the device.

    Do let us know if you are still seeing the same issue?

    Thanks!

    AdminArun Kaza (Adobe) (Product Manager, Adobe) commented  · 

    Hi Ondy,

    What you mentioned here about mobile browsers having lesser vertical area available to display content is the main reason why this issue is happening.

    We are trying to fit height of the design first, and then reduce width proportionally to maintain aspect ratio. This is why you see white gaps on left and right as the width has reduced slightly than its original size. This is the only way we can fit in the entire design within the available viewable area inside of the mobile browser.

    The other option is to always fit to width of the design and then let there be vertical scrolling possible to view any content that would fall beyond the available viewable height in the browser. Do you think that would be acceptable behavior?

    As a workaround for this featire you can make your home artboard an “index” page which links to the different views/subsets of your design. When you share your design and visit the URL you can click through to the real home artboards and copy the URL (each artboard has it’s own URL on the shared link). You can then share these URLs to link people to a subset of your design.

    We hope to be able to formalize this feature in the future.

    Hi Leo,

    The title field is automatically filled with name of the XD document, which you can edit or update as your wish.

    The reason for providing "Update" option in there is to quickly be able to perform update operation in one click. Update is the most common use case, and hence we wanted to expose it on the top level.

    But I see your point of title having the same name even when you choose to create a "New Link". Do you think if we appended "copy" to the title automatically whenever you choose "New Link" option would help?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thank you for submitting your request to us.

    To understand little more on this ask, I have couple of questions:

    1. When you say you update the prototype, comments are lost? - This seems weird and should not be happening in first place. After you have added comments, if you design changes and then click on "Update" button in the publish popup, those changes get propagated to the same link. All the comments should be retained as is. Unless you have removed an artboard completely as part of your design changes. This is the only case, when any comments related to that artboard might be lost. Is this the workflow that you are encountering?

    2. Everytime you Update the published prototype, do you think a version should automatically be created for that prototype link?/

    3. Do you always choose to publish once you update your designs? If yes, then do you think the published prototype version should match your XD design file version? Or can they be separate?

    I’ll be leaving this suggestion open, but we currently do have comments and replies support in shared prototypes. You can view them by clicking on the speech bubble in the upper right hand corner of your shared prototype page.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Rainer,

    Thank you for sharing your feature request to us!

    I wanted to ask couple of follow up questions, so that we better understand your ask.
    1. Did you try the current pinning and contextual commenting workflow in the published prototype?
    2. Of all the options that you see in Acrobat, which one would be the most useful for your use cases?
