As a first time user of Adobe XD (free version) on Windows 10, I discovered the included Tutorial is problematic for several reasons.
VERY VERY VERY STRONG SUGGESTION: Make the Hand Tool an item you select on the tool bar on the left. Selecting another tool deselects the hand tool. As an option, leave the space bar/hand functionality.
I should probably point out that the spacebar/mouseButton combo doesn't always work.
Also, it doesn't seem to work at all with the LEFT mouseButton.
It works "sometimes" with the RIGHT button.
If you just keep trying, eventually you'll be rewarded with the hand icon turning into a fist icon (making a grabbing motion).
At this point you'll be able to actually navigate.
Sorry. Allow me to correct myself. It works with the LEFT button and not the RIGHT button.
SUGGESTION - allows us to delete (or mark for deletion) posts and replies in this forum.
Try holding down both the space bar and Windows logo key at the same time to access the hand tool.
Thank you for sharing your feedback and sharing your observation. I understand it could be annoying for you. I'd request you to please upvote the feature request for scrollbars in XD using this link: Scroll bars (horizonal / vertical) on the XD window's viewport – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Request... and add your voice.
I have posted the feedback request link on this forum post: Space bar doesn't work on Adobe Xd so, i'd request you to upvote the same.
