Allow Infinite canvas for several screens in XD version(20.2.12.1)

As an application designer (web/mobile), I really like using Adobe XD for early stage designs and small projects. Its minimalism is a joy to work with.

However, as a project grows in size, XD quickly begins to shows its limitations.

My prototypes often involve several hundred screens – and placing all of these on a single canvas becomes unworkable. At some point, you simply run out of space – even after spending time moving and organizing your screens around the canvas.

XD starts to feel very claustrophobic and limiting.

I can think of two possible solutions.

  1. Allow for multiple canvases (pages) in single XD project. And make page transitions and interactions work across canvases.
  2. Allow interactions/transitions to work across separate XD files.

I think either of these two suggestions would make XD more practical for larger projects. Until then, I will only use XD for smaller projects – or for time-sensitive early stage designs.

Thanks for the input. We are planning to support an "infinite" canvas, can that be a 3rd possible solution for you?

That would help -- but would just provide more space for me to have to organize.

Multiple canvases would be much better.

Or if there was a way to group artboards into a single group (e.g. Section 1, Section 2 , etc..)?  That could work with an infinite canvas and make it easier to navigate to screen groupings.

Sorry... one more idea comes to mind with the infinite canvas.

If there was a way to create an artboard navigation "anchor" (like on web pages) , I could these anchors to quickly navigate to different artboard clusters (Section 1, Section 2, etc).  That would make it easy to manage an infinite canvas.

Hi Chris, 

 

We're so sorry for the delay. I am afraid, as of now, we don't have any official word by when this feature would be available, however, I understand your concern so let me assure you, I will share your feedback with the Engineering team. Please stay tuned to this request for any update: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/16589980-infinite-...
