  2. Safari browser conflicting with show square grid shortcut (⌘+')

    Version 18.1.12.1, CC 4.2.2.13
    Mac OS 10.14.4

    Not sure which side it is on - could be an OS issue. It's been driving me crazy for weeks as toggling square grid on and off is probably most used shortcut. I've discovered that launching Safari stops this keyboard shortcut from working. I have checked system preferences and forums, and deactivated all the possible keyboard shortcuts I can find. The only work around I have so far, is to log out, restart my computer, and then use Chrome or Firefox. Showing Guides is unaffected (⌘+Shift+')

  4. Unable to shift + click and select multiple items

    While holding the shift key down and selecting items I am unable to select multiple items. They are not in separate groups or different art boards. I have a video attached showing my issue. (note: I'm holding the shift key while clicking).

  5. XD should automatically pick up the saved location when i'm exporting the artboard as PNG

    Steps are briefed here


    1. I saved the XD file in my desktop location

    2. I'm trying to export the artboard as PNG

    3. XD will automatically show the different location(what i used to save different file). It should automatically pick the current location where the current file i saved.

  6. Adobe XD doesn't always start

    Hi,
    This bug didn't happen until recently, this is the 7th-8th time it actually happens. but it seems to be happening every day, right after I start my computer. So when I start XD, only the window with the minimize/close buttons appear, nothing more. I wait, and nothing happens. I have to close the window, then start XD again to have it working. Sometimes I have to actually repeat the above process two or three times.

    I have a friend who cannot open XD at all. This is our bread and butter, these issues should not exist, especially in such…

  9. Windows: Clicking Escape doesn't exit Options panel when focus is on Lock icon

    Version: XD19

    Steps:
    1) Draw a rectangle
    2) Set width value, press tab
    3) Set height value, press tab
    4) Lock icon is focused

    Expected: I expect to be able to exit just like I can in any of the other text fields, however the blue outliner is telling me the lock icon is still active.

    Actual result: I cannot exit, lock icon stays focused.

    Workaround: Press tab once more and you can exit again.

  13. Why the zoom in/out is not fluid like photoshop?

    When I say fluid like the animation of the software of the interaction
    is not fluid.
    if you try to zoom IN/OUT in Photoshop the animation of the zoom of the screen happens fluid and not jittery like in XD.
    and I don't know why it's like that. it feels artificial

  15. Shapes get converted to Path

    When ever I copy a shape (Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, Circle) from one document into another XD document, few of the shapes gets converted into a paths automatically. This behaviour is quite often happening often now.

    This is quite frustrating because we have auto-animate transitions and
    everything messes up.

  16. No saving to the cloud document.

    No saving to the cloud document.
    I've started a new document, work on it a couple of days, then I start to have problems with Undo functionality. I decided to restart the app. when I close the document I receive the error message with the text "blah blah We cant save you document". When I reopen my file there are no changes at all in it. Nothing, that I worked on, was saved. It like program crash back in 2005.

  18. Shift + F3 (alternate case types) undoes after click away

    The only way to make the chosen casing work is to edit the text, erase the edit and click away (bug also happens on ctrl+enter).

  20. Overlayed elements displaying blurry and Scroll bar appearance

    Overlayed elements like menus or mini-cart are displaying blurry in comparison with the other elements.

    Additionally, a scroll bar appears sometimes in the mini-cart for example.
