    If I understood your ask correctly - Save as of an existing XD document should not carry over existing published links from it. Is that understanding accurate?
    Thanks!

    I agree with your pain point here. If you wanted a secure way of sharing, would you not prefer the option of 'Only invited people' can access or the Private link sharing instead of password protected? This will have automatic login and other benefits as well in terms of commenting on your prototypes. Thanks!

    Thank you for reaching out and submitting your request to us!

    Today in XD, you can actually export the artboards as a single PDF file via File-->Export option and set the export format as PDF. What this does is that it will put each artboard an image and export into PDF format. Encourage you to give this a try and let us know if this helps you?

    Note that there is no interactivity information present currently, which I think is your point no 2 & 3.

    In the latest version (31.x) of Adobe XD, you can achieve all of the following below. Here are the detailed steps that you can try in the latest version and let us know if this addresses your concerns?

    1. Publish single artboard from canvas:

    Steps:
    a. Switch to Prototype mode
    b. Select the artboard that you want to publish
    c. Set it as ‘Home’ artboard by clicking on the grey home icon decoration that shows up towards the left of that artboard.
    d. Make sure there is no other artboard that is having a wire connection to this set home artboard.
    e. Also make sure there are no other home artboards set in the canvas.
    f. Switch to Share mode, you should see this single home artboard highlighted in Share mode.
    g. Choose the type of link you want to publish and create the link.

    2. Publish Prototype and Design…

    Please note that we are going to provide UX flow view along with Grid view that you can switch between. For a design specs link, you will have the option to switch view between Grid and UX flow while viewing it on web.

    Hope that will solve your concern about not being able to see your design layout and structure?
    Thanks!

    You can still choose to share a "Design Review" link which is essentially the Prototype or choose to share a "Development" link which is now prototype+specs information for the artboards that you have selected.

    Essentially, you do have a way to just share prototype link separately. Its your design spec link which has become richer.

    Please let us know if this is not what you are seeing in the build? Thanks!

    Hi Anais,

    Thank you for reaching out to us with your requests.

    If you are creating a public link in XD, it can be accessed by anyone who has the link and it has no security layer. In this case, @mention only lists names of the users who has commented once. Please note that anyone with the link can potentially open it in a web browser and view the content. They do not need to sign-in at all. For @mention to list names, we will need to know the users accessing it. In other words, users who have signed in to access it.

    This is true for Guest users as well. When you choose to get in as a Guest user, you do not need to login using any email ID. @mention will not be able to send any notifications to such names that we do not know anything about.

    On the other hand, if you are using a private link published from XD, then to access such a link, users will have to login using their Adobe ID (adobe ID can also be a free account!). In this scenario, @mention will list all the users whom you have invited on that private link (without them having to comment at all). This is because, we already know who are the invitees and hence know their email ID's.

    Hope this helps clarify your questions and let's you know how @mention currently works in different types of shared links? 

    Happy to answer any other questions or concerns.

    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 Luís,

    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.

    Thanks!

    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!

    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!

    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?

    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?
