You know, that's a very good and legitimate question.
And the plain and honest answer to that is: you can't !
More than 28 years after the first website appeared, we've come so far that a promising and professional web (and app) design tool isn't capable to let even the simplest element of interactivity be created and function as expected. Isn't that odd ?
Well, it's not Adobe XD's goal to produce working stuff, but just sketchy wireframes, pristine mock-ups, insightful prototypes, and some raw materials and details to help developers build the whole thing.
So at best, you could design a button or text to be a link (underline, bold, different color). You could hook it up to an artboard with a screen, mimicking the expected website. Testing it would yield the experience of going to the website, but that's all for now...
Thank you for reaching out. In addition to what Pete has suggested, we have seen a similar request has been raised here: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12954396-link-to-e...
We would request you to please submit your feedback & upvote the request to add your voice.
Hope it helps.
How many votes does it take to get Adobe to do anything the community needs?
That is the million-dollar question.
"Million-dollar question" - that's a good one!
Collectively, the people who voted for this feature for the time the request has existed have paid more than $7 million for CC subscriptions. Apparently it's not enough.
There's also the dark interface with a similar amount of upvotes. I guess 7 mil doesn't cover the cost for someone to change 10 colors and add a light-bulb icon somewhere.
I wonder why the whole uservoice thing exists at all, if they'll just do what some marketing person completely disconnected from reality has decided is the way to go, completely ignoring the so-called "user voice".
Still no option to add a simple links after 3-4 years to XD projects? Adobe xd is slow and falling behind on basic standard features.. I guess i will have ask my clients to move to UXpin /sketch / figma many of these features are standard and more.
Also adobe xd or its 3rd party seem to charge arm and a leg through its plugin for some basic features which should be stadard built in like embeding code , allowing user to enter text on text field etc. very dissapointing.
So on top of Adobe subcriptions charges you will have to come up with another20-30 dollars for every 3rd party plugins .. so once end up buying all the various 3rd party pluggins, you may end up paying about 70-90 dollars or more per with all the added plugins..
