  1. Copy/paste to illustrator

    When I copy a carefully crafted object from XD to Illustrator, it pastes it as a bitmap rather than vector object.

      Hi,

      I am interested in the SVG export issues you described below:

      • what does it mean “it doesn’t “bring” masking with it”?
      • what are the issues when you have bitmaps? What is weird/unpredictable in this case?
      • are the exported SVG files opening properly in browsers?

      Cheers,
      M.

    • startup

      On startup xd keeps opening last two or three files.

      Windows 10

      for the last week whenever i start xd it opens the last files if been working on. somtimes xd crashes. when it doesnt crash i just close the files i dont need or start a new document. But the next time i start up again this happens again. I dont know how to fix this

      • [windows] same document open multiple times

        I have yet to figure out how I'm able to open the same document multiple times, but I think it has something do to when I restart windows and open up Adobe XD again.

        I have filed this one before:
        https://forums.adobe.com/message/9646531#9646531

        What is dangerous with this bug, is when you close one of your documents it automatically saves and overwrites the other one.

        • Hotkeys stop working

          Version 0.6.32.12 Beta [Win]

          Hotkeys (Shift+Ctrl+[, Shift+Ctrl+], Ctrl+C) stop working suddenly. Unfortunately, I cannot provide steps to reproduce situation, but it just happens. Reopening app fixes this.

            • [Mac] Exported artboards are getting renamed with numbers

              Hey guys!
              What happened to the exporting feature? After this last updated my artboards are getting renamed with numbers when I export them, why did you add a limit there?
              This is a huge step back, every designer uses the artboard names to organize the wireframes folders, we need to export the files as we name them on the software.
              That's not a good user experience =/

                Hi guys,

                First i would like to thank you all for getting back to use with this useful feedback, really appreciate this.
                We are working to fix this issue in the next version of XD. I do have some questions on this topic though:

                • as you know, there is a limitation on the path length on Win10 (260 chars) and another one on OSX (1000). If you name your artboards to a text containing 128 chars and then you export it in a path that has already 160 chars, the export will fail on Win10.
                • in such case, would you prefer to have a limitation in place for the number of chars that can be used for naming to minimize the risk of export fail? If so, what would be that number?
                • OR would you be ok to have no limitation to the name and in case export fails for…
              • When opening XD, it opens all the files from the last time I had it open, not just unsaved files

                Environment: Windows 10

                Repro:
                1. Open a bunch of files and save them.
                2. Close XD
                3. Lock your machine
                4. Go away for a while
                5. Log in to the PC
                6. Open an XD file

                Result: All the files you saved previously open
                Expect: Just open the file I asked for

                • [Windows]Was typing text into XD changed font size and saving gives bad response

                  Repro steps:

                  - Created a text box by copying another text box.
                  - Started typing the new text in the box realized I needed to resize it.
                  - Clicked in the font size frame[box?]
                  - (after trying my old habit of scrolling, which didn't work in the box)
                  - I tried to edit the font size with the keyboard. Set it to 8.
                  - Clicked back into my text box, realized the font didn't change size.
                  - Then had to click back in the font size box and i realized there were little arrows on the cursor i could drag…

                    • Saving file to synced Google Drive location often gives error and crashes

                      This is extremely frustrating. Often times when I save (especially during successive save attempts) I'll get an error dialog that says:

                      "Please save in another location."

                      "You don't have permission to save files on "<path>""

                      When it gets in this state, the only way I can avoid losing work is to save as a different file. However, sometimes I can't as the menu will become unresponsive when selecting Save As (no folder picker comes up) and then the app will often crash.

                      I can't be the only one using Google Drive and having this issue! There are tons of applications…

                      • Dragging grouped layer in menu makes all other application windows disappear

                        Adobe XD Version 0.6.34.3 Beta
                        Windows 10 Version 1703 OS Build 15063.413
                        Intel i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz

                        Steps to reproduce:

                        Create Artboard
                        Create Rectangle Object
                        RIght-click object in layers menu and click 'Group' (ctrl+G)
                        Click group folder icon to 'open' group
                        Click and drag Rectangle object out of Group (folder)

                        Expected result:

                        The object stays 'attached' to mouse cursor and can be moved around in layers menu

                        Actual result:

                        Object stays attached to mouse cursor, but every application window on every desktop (3 monitors, multiple desktops) disappears. When I release the mouse button, the XD window reappears, but every other…

                        • [Windows] XD reopens unchanged files from the previous session (G18894)

                          Everyone has things they would rather forget, like those particularly embarrassing experiences from adolescence that pop up into conversation every once in a while. Similarly, XD for Windows 10 occasionally gets into a cycle where it will open every single window you had in your last session, even if you saved and closed the file. If this happens, you should close the application and delete the files in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Adobe.CC.XD_adky2gkssdxte\LocalState.

                          • File corruption after reboot

                            I had worked on a file the previous day and saved it. For some updates I had to reboot the system while the XD file was open. After reboot, when I tried to open the file, it was empty. Adobe, please fix this. Please release a stable release so that we can start using it full-time.

                              Hi,

                              I am sorry to hear that. I want to make sure i understand your issue so it would be great if you could provide some more information:

                              • what version of Win10 do you have?
                              • did the issue happen with just one file?
                              • you mentioned you worked on a file and saved it. When did the reboot occur – while saving the file?
                              • you mentioned that the file was empty. Does this mean that the XD file does not contain any art you created but you are still able to open it using XD? Does it mean that the file has 0kb on your storage?
                              • what is the path to the XD file that is empty? Was this path pointing to a network drive instead of a local folder?
                              • do you see the file in the list of recent files when you open XD?

                              Cheers,
                              M.

                                Sorry you have problems with XD, especially with your deadline approaching soon. Please send the file to me. Let me know here when you sent it so I won’t miss the file.

                                Could you try to copy paste all artboards of that file, rewire it and then share?
                                Is this the only file you have trouble sharing?

                              • Zoom Shortcut ⌘Ü ???

                                Inconsistency of keyboard shortcuts across adobe applications isn't a novelty, but "⌘Ü" to zoom in? I guess that's a bug, since in the online shortcut list it is listed as "⌘+".

                                • Rectangle is Converted to Path (Somehow...)

                                  Version: 0.6.34.3
                                  OS: Mac and Windows

                                  Observation:
                                  After a rectangle has been created (in my case with 2dp rounded corners) it is automatically converted to a path some time later without telling it explicitly to do so. As a consequence it looses its rounded corner property and resizing results in changes of the corner radius.

                                  Expected Behavior:
                                  Rectangles remain rectangles until the user explicitly wants to convert it to a path.

                                  • Text shift in device preview

                                    Not sure how to even troubleshoot this. When using the font Adobe Clean, and viewing in Device Preview on iPhone, we are noticing that some weights show up roughly 5px lower than where they are in the file.

                                    I'd like to blame the font, but it works fine everywhere else. Just not Device Preview.

                                      Hi there,

                                      Thanks for letting us know about this. If you could share the version of the font you are using, that would help us diagnose the issue. My initial guess would be that you have two versions of the font installed, and the wrong one is being synced to the mobile device. Font Book may be able to help you (see https://support.apple.com/kb/PH21404?locale=en_US), but otherwise a search on your system for the font files may catch them (the file name on my system is AdobeClean-Regular.otf for the Regular weight).

                                      Please let us know if that turns out to be the case, otherwise we can keep digging to get to the bottom of this issue.

                                    • Slow response when linking prototype screens in large file

                                      In the prototype screen there is a 10-15 second delay every time I hook up a screen/element. After releasing the pick-whip the app stalls trying to load the pop-up dialog that lets you choose the transition/easing. I am unable to click away in the app until the pop-up successfully loads (even if I am not using it and trying to click elsewhere)

                                      The prototype is quite large (XD file is 146mb) and was built by another designer on MAC without these issues. I am using Windows 10.

                                      • Error 49 when Saving the file

                                        I'm on Win 10, XD ver. 0.6.32.12
                                        Most of the times when I try to save a file after editing, I get this error-
                                        "There was an error saving the file (Error code: 49)"

                                        The file name or the username doesn't has any special characters.
                                        The file is only 373kb big.

                                          Hi,

                                          I have some questions on this issue to help us understand it better:

                                          • does it happen randomly?
                                          • does it happen with just 1 file?
                                          • where are you trying to save the file when the error happens?
                                          • what happens after you get the error? Can you save the file again after you dismiss the error dialog? Are the changes that were not saved lost?
                                          • what version of Win10 do you have installed?

                                          Cheers,
                                          M.

                                        • No activity tab (versioning) for .xd files in Creative Cloud

                                          Adobe XD version 0.6.34.3 Beta on macOS Sierra 10.12.5

                                          .xd files that are saved in Creative Cloud don't get versioning. The tab "Activity" is missing completely. Other file types (like .psd) are working fine.
