  1. Shadows should not be clipped by components

    Currently components clip shadows of elements within. This is, in my opinion, not how it should be. I would at least like an option to turn this behaviour off and on

    This behaviour has two downsides:
    - increasing the shadow spread afterwards means you need to re-adjust the entire component, so that the shadow does not get clipped
    - juding distances is way harder and you wont get help from smartguides when aligining components with other objects

    Here's a video on the issue:

    Dear XD Community,

    Thanks for your feedback and for sharing with us the areas that we need to invest in and improve on.

    With the XD August release, we have introduced several enhancements to components. Those enhancements address the following:

    1) Drop shadows and blurs will be rendered outside the component bounding box which will help with layout and pixel alignment. For existing components with those issues, right-click the master component and select ‘Fit Bounds to Content’ to reset the bounds on the master component and all instances

    2) Component bounds will automatically adjust (expand or shrink) to fit the content within the component while keeping all component instances in sync. For existing components with those issues, right-click the master component and select ‘Fit Bounds to Content’ to reset the bounds on the master component and all instances

    3) No more Fractional Pixels with responsive resizing components

    To learn more…

  2. Snap items within group to pixel when resizing (or multiple selection)

    If I select multiple objects at once, or a group containing multiple objects, resizing makes the objects no longer aligned with the pixel grid. In other words, the X / Y / width / height values change from integers to fractions, and the edges of the shapes become fuzzy (especially on a 1x screen).

    Resizing a single object at a time, everything stays pixel aligned. This only happens when resizing multiple things at once.

  3. Child component state shouldn't persist across various parent component states when changed in those states

    I have Parent Component which has state A (default), B, and C, then inside it I have Child Component with states A (default), B, and C. In state A of the master Parent Component I set Child Components state to A. In state B of Parent Component I set Child Component's state to B. In state C of Parent Component I set Child Component's state to C.

    Now I create a new Instance of Parent Component. It defaults to state A with Child Component inside in the default state of A, but if I change my Parent Component instance to…

  4. Recover unsaved files

    Just like other Adobe products, offer users the chance to restore an unsaved file after the program or computer crashes. Acrobat example attached.

  5. Alt code support

    Shortcut keys introduced recently for the Design, Prototype, and Share tabs prevents text entry of alt codes. I enter em (alt+0151) and en (alt+0150) dashes a lot, but the recent change means I only get as far as the second number before XD exits text entry mode.

  6. Adobe XD - W H X Y new behaviour

    Hello Adobe XD team.

    With the latest update on Mac (30.2.12.3) you change the behaviour of the input for W, H, X and Y.

    Before, by clicking on the input, the all value of the input was selected but now, when i click on the input, it doesn't select the whole value but just put the tick (bar, pipe) one the input.

    I'm not really ok with this new behaviour because it puts more time for me with my design. Moreover, the other input has the "old behaviour" (ex : inputs of text, opacity, rotation...).

  7. Forced full-pixel when resizing

    When resizing components or groups, XD resizes in Pixel decimals. It could be nice with a way to force it to resize in full pixels, eg. when holding cmd/ctrl while resizing a component/group.

  8. Undo and save broken by setting fill opacity

    After long search and on call with Adobe Support we manage to pinpoint an issue where setting a fill opacity breaks XD in a way that you can no longer undo any changes, nor is this file auto-saved / saved anymore.

    As far as I know you can set object Fill Alpha / Opacity in 3 ways:
    1. Open the fill palette, type a new alpha value into the alpha field (which begins at 100%)
    2. Open the fill palette, drag up / down on the vertical opacity slider on the right of the palette (next to hue selector)
    3.…

  9. Controller Triggers (Xbox) Bug

    Please fix the LT RT buttons input from xbox controller. The trigger input worked in v35.3.12. All other versions after that do not accept the trigger input and prototypes made with earlier version which have LT RT input in the prototype key field do not work anymore.
    Feature: If you add an option to show which button is being pressed while presenting the prototype will be nice :)

  10. [BUG] VS code: Cannot export tokens from DSP package

    I have installed the Adobe XD extension in VS code, created a new DSP package, added a few tokens and saved changes to export the tokens in CSS and JavaScript. I confirmed the installation of style-dictionary package locally and clicked Export tokens, but nothing exported and I got asked again to install the style-dictionary package.
    I guess there is some issue in the extension, because when I install style-dictionary manually from npm, I can generate the tokens using command line without problems. But it's a workaround only.

    Windows 10
    VS code 1.50.1
    Adobe XD extension 1.0.3

    bug-fixed  ·  Demian Borba responded

    Just wanted to let you know that we released an update to the VS Code extension (v1.1.3) with fixes to the issue reported.

    If you have a chance, please give it a try and let us know if it’s working for you now.

    Thanks.

  11. Show more than 29 documents in link assets window

    Currently the Link Assets window under the Shared With You tab only shows a max of 29 files, I have my Design System that is one of the first files shared with me and it doesn't show in the list.

    The solution is to show every shared file no matter how old the file is or the quantity of files the user has.

  12. Web sharing issue showstopper: loading next screen hangs on timed transitions set to 0s delay.

    Since a week or so some of our presentations using timed transitions are hanging and freezing dead on the spots with timed transitions and never load the next screen. This occurs on the transitions set to 0s. All of the presentations were intensively tested before and worked. The issue is browser/platform independent and started occurring only recently on already uploaded presentations / click dummies.

  14. Tap target should include padding

    Elements with padding can only be tapped inside of the padding area (when viewed in the Desktop Preview on macOS, v27.0.12.6).

    Probably just a bug.

  15. Footer of embedded prototypes

    I want to select whether to have a footer of embedded prototypes.

    Because in the June 18 2018 update, the footer is forced to appear in the embedded prototype.

    before update:
    https://xd.adobe.com/embed/19c05179-c814-4917-79d5-2a4352e5665f-6ff1/

    after update:
    https://xd.adobe.com/embed/9d29b584-173f-4e9a-62d2-c3a815f97087-eb18/

    I have created a prototype on a component basis as in the following example.

    http://clown5.com/demo/xd/sudapan_xd.html
    (Carousel main visual is embedded prototype)

    By combining multiple prototypes, we also made a demo that branched 125 patterns with 15 artboards.

    http://clown5.com/demo/xd/sudacreate.html
    (This demo is made up of three embedded prototypes)

  16. XD Keeps Crashing

    Adobe XD keeps crashing on me and the saved XD file isn't up to date with the last save I did. The last save it registers seems to be about an hour previous to the last "save" I did in XD, if that makes sense.

  17. Make it possible to remove grey border from Adobe XD online shared links

    When uploading a prototype to the web Adobe XD includes an unwanted grey border around the export.

    see: https://xd.adobe.com/view/a509f5d7-147e-435b-8bf8-3764c820ec85/

    Even though the embed code inside XD reads: frameborder="0" there still is a border included.

    Could it be possible that there is a typo in this line as it should say: frameBorder="0" (note the capital “B”)

    Anyhow, can this border be removed? Or at least be optional…

  18. Prototype link leads to Error 503

    Every time I try to work with XD it lets me down. Now I've built this prototype, created a shareable link but it leads to an error 503 page. It tried again creating a new link. Same error. The thumbnail appears on my CC prototypes but leads to an error page. This is basic function for this kind of software. It's not worth for me if I can't share/show this around. I'm now exporting to PNGs to add on Invision. Should have used SketchApp for this from the start – or even Axure RP. Cheers.

    Sorry for the inconvenience! We experienced an unexpected service outage last night that was quickly resolved. You should be able to view your prototypes now. In the future, you can check on our service status at status.adobe.com (click on Creative Cloud).

  19. Change artboard size after creation.

    It's impossible to change the size of the artboard if you've used one of the presets to make it. All it does is make it scrollable if you resize it.

    I think there should be a checkbox saying "freeze width & height".

    The issue can be avoided by creating a custom sized artboard and pasting in all the content from another one. But doing so for many artboards is really hard and troublesome.

    With our new September build, you’re now able to set whether or not the artboard is scrollable in the property inspector. Please do try it out and let us know what you think!

    Thanks,
