  1. Shadows don't animate with auto-animate

    When I animate drop-shadows on an element it doesn't animate with the rest of the element. Only after the element has animated does the shadow jump instantaneously from value set A to value set B.

    • Voice trigger in embed mode doesn't work

      It seems that voice triggered actions are not supported in embed mode. Is it by design? If yes, why? Can you fix it any soon?

        • Resizing a group of shapes does not work when using the right-hand panel

          I have a group of shapes that makes up an icon. When I resize them with the mouse, or Shift+Mouse to keep the scale, it works fine. When I use the right-hand panel Width / Height inputs, the sub-shapes seem to move, but not resize. Or, if I change it quickly, some really strange stuff happens.

          Version 13.1.32.8 - Windows 10

          • Boolean intersect operation loses booleanism after reaches object intersection

            I am not sure this is a bug or a feature request. But I am using the boolean intersect operation to intersect 2 vector shapes. I am then animating the intersection. But soon as I reach the masked object bounds or just beyond it the boolean intersection undoes itself. I have attached a video.

            • The new drag feature doesn't support touch

              The new drag feature is awesome, but it doesn't work with Windows touch screens. I get the fact that the feature is simple in its early days (can't animate properties like color etc), but not adding support for touch events is just simply unacceptable!

              I intentionally added this as a bug report, not a feature request because this should never have been an issue! I'm disappointed that you just forgot that Windows has touch displays.

              • Default prototype link transition animation type not remembered between editing sessions

                XD version 12.0.12.10

                1. Create four art boards w/ an object on each.
                2. Switch to Prototype mode and create a link between the object on artboard 1 to artboard 2.
                3. Set the transition animation to None.
                4. Create a link from the object on artboard 2 to artboard 3.
                5. Notice that the transition type is still set to None.
                6. Save and exit XD.
                7. Restart XD and create a prototype link between the object on artboard 3 to artboard 4.
                8. Notice that the transition animation type has reverted to Dissolve.

                Expected behavior: The transition animation…

                • could the border color be changed with global colors when only the border attribute is selected?

                  I have read that this is not been considered as a bug.

                  But I think it could be helpful that if we only have selected the border attribute, this could be taken as the color to fill when clicking a global color.

                  Thanks :)

                  • Incorrect display of the borders of the viewer

                    The lower boundaries of the prototype view window are displayed as rectangular, rather than rounded, as upper. Rather, they are both rounded and straight at the same time.

                    • Create and Name Symbol on Layers Panel Should Also Set Symbol Name on Assets Panel

                      This issue has been raised at least once before and closed as by design. Here is the issue and request:

                      Repro:
                      - open the layers panel
                      - draw a shape
                      - select it and press CTRL + K to make it a symbol
                      - rename the symbol in the Layers panel
                      - switch to the Assets panel
                      notice: the new symbol is still named Symbol XX
                      expect:
                      1 - an option to name both the symbol and the instance when you first create it, so you don't have to name it twice (once in the Layers panel and again in…

                      • Creative Cloud Library modal hides behind main XD window

                        Computer: HP ZBook Studio G3 running Windows 10

                        Whenever I try to use CC libraries, the modal disappers behind the main XD window whenever I click back to the artboard. To work around this, I must select the item I would like to change, bring the CC library modal back to front, and select the CC item I would like. My coworkers on Mac do not have this issue; their CC Library modal remains on top during their workflow.

                          Hello Sadie:

                          I think what you’re seeing is expected for Win unfortunately. Do you have your XD project set to full screen? My understanding is that because of UWP, this dialog is treated as a separate instance of the app (you can close XD project windows, Creative Cloud Library dialog will remain open).

                          I’ll move this post into the Feature Request forum for the team to review.

                          Cheers!
                          Nina

                          When option-dragging an artboard handle, all of the elements on the artboard remain left-justified. I would expect this function to keep all elements centered on the board. I believe this is how it used to function.

                          • New artboard size not remembered between editing sessions

                            XD version 12.0.12.10

                            1. Open XD and create a new artboard with the Web 1366 template (or any non-default template).
                            2. Create a second artboard.
                            3. Notice that the new artboard is created with the Web 1366 settings.
                            4. Save the file and exit XD.
                            7. Restart XD re-open the file and create a new artboard.
                            8. Notice that the artboard crated uses the iPhone 6/7/8 template.

                            Expected behavior: New artboards should be created with the Web 1366 template.
