    Fixed elements needs to be a thing. What is the point of scrolling art boards if my beautiful fixed bottom menu floats up the screen?

    Loving XD, a brilliant app. After 20-something years on Photoshop ;-)

    Thank you so much...! Really happy with the radial gradient in Xd and Zeplin integration. But still there are some changes needed in it, which I'm sure you guys are gonna do it in the future updates. I really need the some improvement in masking of images on the box or other masking things. It'll be really great if you can make it like the photoshop.

    Will wait for the new updates.

      Hi Ali, thank you for the feedback. If you have not already, I would add your vote to this feature request here. If you don't mind sharing, which effect would you want to use the most as a multiple (fills, borders, shadows, etc.)?
