    Hi. I've been keeping an eye on Xd project since it was released. Must say it looks and feels good, although it's still missing some of the things other tools already have.

    My interest in Xd is mainly based on the prototyping capabilities, since it's pretty trivial and expected that there should be some more features available sooner rather than later in the design segment.

    My question is will there be more advanced prototyping functionality in the near future?

    For example, animating a specific group of objects in the artboard, so that when you make sliding transitions between the screens, some group doesn't animate and the other group slides.

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

      Hello Goran, thanks for your feedback. We agree there's a lot to do especially when it comes down to prototyping. Now that we have Windows and Mac aligned, we'll be able to invest more time on prototyping features. That doesn't mean there's no progress there, recently we just released an update allowing users to copy and paste interactions. Feel free to upvote here: We'll notify you and everyone who votes there when the feature lands. It'll take time, but we'll definitely get there. Thanks for your support.

        Good to hear! I believe that more advanced prototyping features would make a significant step forward making Xd an 'all-around' platform. Also I'm aware it's quite demanding from software engineering perspective, so it's understandable that it will take awhile to land it.

        Thanks again for your reply, and best of luck with the future updates!
