  1. This document cannot be opened until the active editors leave.

    Hi,

    After sharing a Xd file to a co-worker, when they have the Xd file opened, other co-workers cannot open the file at the same time. It will usually display a message saying:

    " This document cannot be opened until the active editors leave."

    or the file will be opened but showing "Disconnected".

    Currently workin on:
    macOS 10.14.6
    Creative Cloud: 5.00.354
    Adobe Xd: 24.2.22

    Thanks!

    We’ll be updating the message in an upcoming version of XD, but this message means that you and your colleagues are not using the same version of XD to open the document. Check to make sure that you are using the same exact version of XD to open the document, and you should be able to coedit at will. Hope that helps!

  4. Return the flow switcher please!

    After the latest updates I could not find how to switch the view of all screens from the grid to the flow in dev mode. That's too bad

    The flow switcher is still there – you can look in the upper right corner if you’re in grid view. If you’re in focus view and not in grid view, you can return to the grid view by clicking on the four squares in the upper left corner. Hope that helps!

  5. Offline Access to XD

    Here's my story:

    I traveled to my parent's house outside of the City I live in, and my parents' have got a very poor internet connection there, so, I opened XD to continue designing one of my projects and XD keep asking me to log in!

    There is no way it will allow me to work unless I log in!

    Without internet access to login, I'm not able to work, which is completely BS!

    Can you, please, make XD accessible offline and make me login later on?

    P.S. request:
    Please, make this input field resizeable, so I could read everything…

  8. Keyboard trigger not working in web if assets hidden

    BUG:
    To allow convenient keyboard triggers over entire prototype it is necessary to add hidden buttons/elements on each artboard. Every button is allowed to have only one trigger (feature request already exists for this problem).

    Keyboard keys (windows) working fine if in preview mode.
    BUT if sharing on web they don´t work anymore IF the "buttons" are set to invissible.

    Workaround: move VISSIBLE buttons with trigger to lowest layer so that they can be hidden behind something in front.

  9. A way to pause animations in feedback view

    Currently, if you have an animation happening across two artboards that just cycling between each other, it makes it difficult for a reviewer to leave comments. The only way to pause an animation is to click into the area where you can leave a comment. If there are already comments on that slide it can be a carnival game trying to click into that area. See attached gif. It would be nice to have a way for them to pause during review stages.

  10. Transitions & Animations

    I just wanted to suggest that XD should provide transitions and animations just like the PROTOPIE does. There are few things that cannot be done in XD easily this is where protopie come in. Kindly provide features like PROTOPIE ! Thanks!!

    Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, this is too vague of a suggestion. Can you give us examples of individual features you’re missing from ProtoPie that you’d like to see in XD? If you file them here as individual requests (one ticket per request), it’ll be easier for us to merge with other similar requests. Thanks!

  11. Assign all objects an ID

    It's seems a small feature but actually can make huge impact.
    And it's easy (relatively to other requests) for Adobe XD team to implement.

    Basically, for me, I need to be able to give id for every objects in order for my plugin to automate an export. Many things can be done if we can give id for our objects.

    I give you an example. If I can give an id for a rectangle which is place at the top of the artboard (position as header), let say i give id="ion-header", this information is useful for my plugin to automate…

  12. Space for publising and development links

    It would be great to be able to check the used/remaining space for links. I have been told that there are 100GB space for links but I would need to know how much of that I am using or I have left because I am getting error 44:47 because of space problems...

  13. image rotation in mask

    There should be a way to rotate a photo inside a mask. Right now the whole mask rotates and not just the image. See example.

  14. Slow and Crashing

    Adobe XD seems to be slow and crashing while opening, even in the last project I have done while I was exporting artboards, that process was slow too. It's happening after the last update I have made in August,2019.

  15. Prototype comments panel missing

    Saw error 69:-1 when updating a prototype a few minutes ago. When viewing the currently active link I could see past comments but could not resolve the comment. Now I can publish but when viewing the link the comments button / panel is gone (allow commenting was checked in the publish settings). Have a running history of comments from client and needed to view them and resolve specific ones

  17. XD App loading screen Hangs / Freeze Fix

    I have found a Bug when using special characters and want to preview it on the App.

    My XD App kept on crashing during loading screen of an artboard or file.
    I have found the problem.
    It was when I was using special characters such as "Ⓒ" even with the font-type Roboto .. that it crashes.

    When removing this the artboard loaded normally

  19. Auto animate not working properly in Android App

    I'm trying to view my prototype on the Android App but I just can't make the auto animate works properly. I open the file in the web browser (desktop) and it works fine, but not on my smartphone. I'm using Android 8.0, Samsung SM-A520F with the last version of XD app.

    I can't share the project here, but, for example, I have a button that has to simply grown and show some content. Works Ok with auto animate in web browser and file preview in desktop. When in the app, the animation just don't exist (transition effects seems to work…

  20. Live Preview Bug - Mac to iPhone 8 Plus

    I am having an issue where XD is not detecting my iPhone that is connected to my Mac via USB. The phone is charging and iTunes is picking it up as connected. When I click on the "Device Preview" it just gives me the prompt:

    "Connect iOS or Android devices to XD via USV to preview your designs and prototypes in real-time".

    Yes, I have XD running on my phone. When I tap the "Live Preview" button, it doesn't read as being connected to XD, giving me the prompt:

    "Open an XD document on your desktop. Using a USB cable,…
