AMA: All About Prototyping in Adobe XD

almost 4 years ago from Kyle Galle, Design Marketing, UI/UX @ Adobe

    Thanks Kyle! this was all made in Adobe XD. And Photoshop. Really like the ability to use Creative Cloud Library with Photoshop and now illustrator.

    Another feedback I would give about Design Spec is because I am designing for responsive website pages, I often have to link the desktop to tablet and mobile, so that it'll be shown in spec mode. It would be great if there was a checkbox button where it includes all artboards.

    And for Clickable Prototype, it's a hassle to find missing linkages when you have over 500 artboards. And when you create the link, you find that only 160 screens are there. I upvoted this idea on uservoice where it highlights the artboard's border red if it has not be linked.

    Right now I use design spec to cross check which screens have not been linked.

    I think I already shared with Harish before, that developers also requested to splice the assets themselves on the spec mode. Sometimes developers chase me and inform me that I forgot to splice certain assets.

      Hi Stephen, thank you for the detailed feedback. I am glad to hear that Creative Cloud libraries in XD is accelerating and simplifying your workflow!

      For the option to show all artboards in Design Specs, I would add your vote here

      In regards to the highlighting the missing links, I can see how that type of functionality would be very helpful, especially for files with a large number of artboards. If you don't mind sharing, what type of project required 500 artboards?

      On splicing assets, the team is working on asset extraction as part of Design Specs. If you have not already, I would upvote this request here.

        Hi Kyle,

        Just added my vote.

        I included an app that I designed that has 460 screens here.

        This is the spec link here

        A large chunk of the app is the lessons.

          Hi Stephen, thank your for the vote and sharing your app. 460 screens is no small project! Love the use of illustrations!
