  1. 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. 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. 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…

  6. Currently, after creating a component, there is a preview image of that component in the assets panel. But if you make a change to that master component (for example, changing a green object to red) the preview in the assets panel does not update. So even though I now want this component to be a red object, it becomes very hard to find it in the assets panel, at a glance because it is still green in the preview image.

  7. 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.

  8. 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...).

  9. 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.

  10. Настройка частоты автосохранения в работе с облачными проектами

    Нужна функция регулирования автосохранения в работе с облачными проектами. В текущий момент автосохранения происходят практически моментально и это мешает работать.

    Описание проблемы:
    Я выбираю элемент, кликаю в область редактирования его размера, зажимаю Shift + → (стрелочка вправо) что бы увеличить размер элемента вправо на +10 px. Эти действия повторяются циклично пока резульат не будет достигнут. Данные взаимодействия с инпутами работают идеально в оффлайн проектах. Но в облачных проектах, это работает не корректно. При взаимодействия с инпутами и изменении их значений внезапно происходит автосохранения и выделенный инпут сбрасывается. Вместо увеличение размера объекта Shift…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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 :)

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. I often create a new component while I have a search/filter applied on my asset list. When this happens, I'm not prompted to name my new component's name (e.g. Component 245) doesn't match my current filter criteria. I usually undo the component creation, clear my filter, and then create the component again to make sure I'm renaming the right one.

    It would be nice if when a filter is applied, the new component name could still appear at the top the filtered asset list even though its new name won't meet the current filter criteria.

    I find it very helpful…

  19. 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)

  20. 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.
