    Thank you for fixed elements.

    When will we see overlays for prototyping?

    I just covered it on my yt chan @designcourse yesterday. Awesome stuff. When you work in microinteractions, I'm going to be an excited little child.

    Thank you! Very much needed feature. It has been tough to design without fixed elements and overlays on mobile/web.

      Give it a go and see what you think. Would love to get feedback on what else you need to make working with XD better!

    2 questions after using these new features.

    1. Can you have both an opaque overlay dissolve in AND a slide up modal (ie: iPhone share modal) with this new overlay feature? I can't seem to figure out how to do that.

    2. How do you have an overlay appear (slide up, down, etc) BELOW a fixed element (ie: fixed footer)?

    Thanks in advance for anyone's advice.
