We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Made a prototype in Adobe XD, then, later wanted to change the order of the artboards in the shared view. Changed the order in shared view, but then it won't update the link. Tried everything. Tried deleting the prototype and creating a new one, tried saving under another name...
I can not imagine that you are stuck with the order you made things in. We need to be able to move the order around!
Anyone know how to fix?
I'm on a mac, but I figured out the problem.
There's a little tab on the left upper corner of the screen. I accidentally clicked on one in the middle of the stack and reordering wasn't cutting it.
Thank you though!
Glad you got it sorted
Unfortunately problem still present, changing orders, hitting preview does not actually 'refresh' the order.
Saving, exiting, restarting, does not help!
I am trying to see what Tab did arcas2307 hit in order to refresh, I tried every single button visible, yet still nothing.
Hey veljkosima, they were referring to the home artboard tab, as shown here: Learn how to create interactive prototypes in Adobe Experience Design that you or others can use to ... Does that fix your ordering?
Apart from the home artboard, the order is as I described in my other answer.
Hi stuart-k, I am also experiencing this issue of not being able to update the order of the artboards after creating a link. Even after setting the home artboard using the tab as you mentioned and arranging them left to right, top to bottom. The messaging "manage links" seems misleading when the shared link created the first go around can't be edited. Please assist, thanks!
The order of the artboards is updated each time you share/"Update Link". You can test the order in which they will appear by using the preview window and the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard; the order will be the same when you view in the browser.
Let us know if this isn't the case.
Got it. Many thanks!
I have re-ordered art boards in every way imaginable and it does not reflect the order even when the link is updated. Any new artboard I either create, or that i copy in from another document is always shown at the end regardless of how it appears in the artoboard layout in XD.
I have tried sorting the artboards in the side panel into an order matching the left-to-right order in the display to no avail. Have gone so far as numbering each artboard in the order i want while doing the above and it just doesnt work
I have this issue nearly nine months after the most recent post. In my case, there is no Update Link option when sharing for review. Why doesn't it work the same as any other published prototype. XD published it out of order. I reordered manually on the page and saved. The prototype did not update. What's the status of this issue?
it doesnt work. the only way we have found to set the order is to painstaking copy each art board one by one to a new document. if you mass copy all at once it fixes the original order no matter what the layout is
nn83184247 I'm guessing that the alignment of the top of your artboards is slightly off, and so the ones that are higher are appearing first. Hopefully the following screenshot illustrates the behaviour:
In the first row the middle artboards will come before the left and right ones because they are higher. In the second row the artboards will be in left to right order, because the top of them are all aligned (at the same x position).
When you copy and paste artboards, XD puts them at the same x position, which is what is changing between the documents.
You can select artboards, and use the align to top button to fix this in your current document.
I was having the same horrible issue and THIS is the suggestion that finally worked for me. 2 of my Artboards were 1px above the others. It didn't matter how I linked them together, I couldn't fix the problem. Once I made sure they were both on the same y axis as others, they were back in the correct order in the live prototype! Thanks!
This is ridiculous. The order of an export to PDF or a link should follow the order we put our boards in under design. I can drag and drop my artboards there into the order I want... and then we can all, as designers, cluster our boards as we want (we probably all have our own preferences). Please FIX THIS. A link to share with a client is useless when it's all mixed up and they only way to fix it is to drag my boards into some ridiculous forced left to right then up and down. I like mine to go in columns in example.
Hi. I have the same problem, but it is not when I share the Online demo, that's when I export the file to PDF. At that moment I lose the consecutive order that I have and every time I have to open Adobe Acrobat to organize my work tables. You may not know how to do this or have not reported this problem when exporting as PDF. I have tried leaving all to the same level, numbering each worktable, alphabetically, but nothing has worked for me. I look forward to your response or help. Thank you!!
Click the 'Prototype' tab to the right of the 'Design' tab. Click on the artboard you want to be 'Home'. Click the little grey box on the top left of the artboard with a home icon. Done
This is retarded. Make separate option to sort the pages. People do no design in linear fashion. I have several clusters of pages and in order to link them, I do move them around quite much. FIX IT. We are paying pretty penny for CC.
Sorting from top -> bottom, left -> right is not working for the preview or sharing the link. The confirmation modal displayed in the preview on the left is the first artboard displayed in the preview/generated link preview. As you can see on the right, it's far below other artboards, and much more right than others. I have no selection when I launch the preview/generate the link.
Help is appreciated. I have a tight deadline on a prototype.
This is still an issue and needs to be fixed!
To solve it quickly, what you can do is move the design with the house at the top, copy it in the place where it was, change the design of the one above for what you want and that's it, your prototype will start on that screen.
Nope, this is still an issue. Doesn't matter if I order them like exaggerated stairs, it still displays in the order it was created. You need to let us order the screens in the design panel, not on the canvas.
