Although Adobe XD does not currently provide scrollbars to navigate the view of your content, there are several different options to pan the viewport around:
- If you have a trackpad, use two fingers to pan (if you have an Apple Magic Mouse, you can use one finger to pan)
- Hold down Space Bar and drag the mouse
- Use the mouse scroll wheel to pan vertically, and use Shift + scroll wheel to pan horizontally
This is troublesome, because the presentation view doesn't have a scrollbar, so if you want to return to the top of a very long page, then you have to use the scrollwheel. If you don't have a scroll wheel there is no way to scroll down or up?

Most Mobile apps do this, e.g. Sketch -- you can use Wifi AND you can use the published (shared) Cloud link. This is great so you can browse all your "share" links and view these on mobile.
Even prototype apps like Flinto, Principle, ProtoPie, all have a wifi or cloud linked execution.
Having to SAVE my file on Creative Cloud is also a huge limitation, You should be able to view any SHARED prototype, as these are stored already on the cloud, you don't really need the source document? Our company won't let me store anything project related on the Creative Cloud, it must be stores in our vault.
Thanks for your feedback. We definitely have this feature in the roadmap. Soon, you’ll be able to manage XD documents stored in CC Files from mobile (search, list, delete) & toggle to save specific projects for offline viewing.

Yeah, you should be able to select/unselect artboards in the "SHARE" persona view.
Yes. Please. Sometimes you want to provide developers with artboards showing additional specs in written form to make things clear, or possibly even hover state and other examples in one sheet. This isn't in the prototype, so you have to export it as a seperate file then.
Also infinite artboards !!!!! Go vote on that one!!
OMW. When I had to start using XD, I realised it has this limiation. I was literally shocked. LOL.
Why not just have both and infinite canvas AS WELL AS --- wait for it ---- PAGES where you can group artboards by UX flows! Gasp! Then at least if you want to use pages to organise yourself, you can or not, your choice.
When I used Sketch, I used Pages for UX process flows like this:
e.g. Onboarding (5 screens), Login (8 screens), Home Feed (app tab 1, 5 screens), Profile (app tab 2, 6 screens), etc.

This is very difficult to prototype for clients to ask them to click to see the "sticky" menu. They just want to scroll to see it automagically appear.

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.
Currently you can only select and move artboards OR objects on the pasteboard. I want to move the artboard and the object next to it on the pasteboard together. Especially since I create variations of element on the pasteboard next to my artboard designs. You can do this is sketch because all objects are selectable. This also helps organising and moving your content/designs/artboards/variations quickly and easily around in the canvas. PS. also the canvas isn't infinite -- that's another issue.
In this screenshot attached, I've dragged over all the content, but XD only selects the artboard and ignores the pasteboard objects, so you can't move them together. It's a two step process. First move artboards and then move the pasteboard objects (nasty if they were perfectly aligned to the artboard).

This is a feature that I got added to Sketch. Super useful to place your footer and then drag the bottom of the artboard upwards and then it "snaps" to the bottom of the footer element.

We’ve started working on multiple fills and borders, with plans to extend to this multiple shadows in the future.
Several of the items originally mentioned here are covered by other feature requests already:
- Dotted/dashed lines: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13024749-dotted-and-dashed-line-border-styles
- Accept CSS as input for styling XD elements: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12926715-use-css-to-specify-object-appearance
The only suggestion I think we don’t have listed yet is arrow-head line endings. To keep the request list tidy, I will change the title here so it is specifically focused on that one idea. Please upvote the other links above so your interest in those features is captured too.
Thanks for your feedback!
While we haven’t created UI to bring this into the app, we have worked to create a wireframe UI kit that we released recently (for free!). Check out Wires: https://www.behance.net/gallery/55462459/Wires-free-wireframe-kits-for-Adobe-XD
