Can XD share a single Navigation Bar with Links

I am trying to build a shared navigation for a webpage prototype.

1. It would look the same throughout every page (similar to a symbol)

2. The visual would change when I changed the master image. (similar to a symbol)

3. The links would change when I changed the master links. (similar to links inside an Overlay)

The navigation would be similar to the way an "Overlay" action would work except that it would always remain on the page instead of animating in.

Is this possible in XD?  I can not find this in any tutorial or document.

The only solution is to copy and paste all the links to every page I create.  If I have edits, then I must recopy every link on each page.

Hi Freds007,

I guess we have an interesting situation here and it appears that you have got the closest workaround here. I tried to replicate the situation at my end. Here is what I have tried.

  • I have created a navigation bar (artboard) and made it a symbol.
  • I added interaction page titles.
  • I pasted a navigation bar with interactions to all the artboards.

As its a symbol I can make edits and it reflects across all artboards. It's just the interactions which don't change with symbols edits. Therefore, if you are able to create perfect interactions once you may be able to use the navigation bar as per your desired results. 

And yes, it's not very different from your workflow. You may also share your feedback here: - Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs and update this discussion with thread so that we can keep a track of it.

Thanks,

Atul_Saini
