  1. Why can't I access my shared files in XD Application?

    This seems to me like a basic Workflow and UX issue created by Adobe. After spending a bunch of time on their support and phone, I have hit a dead end. I can only see this as a oversight from Adobe developers and consider this a bug.

    I shared a file through their XD App on their MacBook. I gave myself editing rights. The file never showed up in my XD Application.

    The file does show on my https://assets.adobe.com/shared

    The file shows as "Design Specs" permission.

    Regardless of the permissions, I should be able to see every shared file the…

  2. XD files appear as folders in Adobe CC app for MS Teams

    This is about the Adobe CC app added to Microsoft Teams.
    By Adobe
    Version 2.5.0.0

    When viewing a shared XD, it appears in the Adobe CC app as a folder and not an .xd file. As a result you can open it and trash the content of the XD file instead of the view and downloaded options you get with an .ai or .indd

  3. Responsive Size always active.

    Hey guys, although I really love the new Responsive Size feature, I consider that it's very annoying to have this functionality activated by default.

    In the 90% of the cases when I drop new icons from Illustrator or when I create new forms in XD itself, I have to unselect the option of "Responsive Size" because it blows up my form while resizing.

  5. Pinch to Zoom Stops working Unless toggled off and on again on Mac

    I'm filing this as a new bug because A) I couldn't successfully vote for another version of this bug and B) the bug was labeled as not reproducible. It still happens and is a problem. toggling pinch to zoom off and on fixes it, but it is annoying.

  7. Holding spacebar + mouse drag does not move the artboard

    This is a unique situation that only seems to happen inside a virtual machine. I am using VirtualBox version 5.2.20 r125813 (Qt5.6.2).

    When attempting to move around the artboard using the space bar + mouse drag it doesn't work. It does display the 'hand' icon but the nothing happens.

    This works fine when using Adobe XD (13.0.12.14) on a physical host.

    Greetings:

    Thanks for sharing your feedback and screen grabs. Can you tell me more about where you’re trying to drag? Another user was recently trying to drag layers while no artboard was open so that case it was showing the correct behavior.

    It would help me a lot to better understand what might be happening if you could share a recording. I use Licecap, https://www.cockos.com/licecap/

    Also, details about your setup:
    - XD version
    - OS version
    - Does this happen with all files or just some?

    Thanks!

  12. Inconsistent Art Board

    I created an XD file for web and the new file got populated correctly with a Web-sized artboard. I have worked on that artboard on a few days. Now, I have opened the file again and wanted to add a second artboard, and the Artboard is iPhone 6/7/8 sized (and named). It seems like the default artboard for a web-design project should be a web-sized artboard, not an iPhone one.

  13. Zoom Feature Bug Prototyping

    When prototyping there is a bug that is not allowing me to see the full window for the transition options. It cuts off as if I am zoomed in too far to see the features on the bottom of the window. However, when I zoom out the window just retains its proportions and keeping me from seeing half of the options. There is no way to move this window either and it is INCREDIBLY frustrating!

  14. Design Specs cannot be exported anymor

    Since about 2 hours it is impossible to export design specs. I have tried everything, even deleting the existing design specs+prototype for my project and creating a new link. However, only a prototype link is created when i click on "Design" and create a new link. I have tried to first create a new prototype link and THEN create a design specs link but still...only the prototype link is shown. It has worked fine until 2 hours ago and we are in the middle of a release which means the developers need the specs urgently. Quite a bummer....

    Greetings:

    Some questions to help dig into this:
    - What version of XD + OS are you working with?
    - Are you seeing an error when you try to create Design spec link?
    - Can you retry same steps with new file that has one artboard with a single shape?
    - Can you share video of the issue?

    Thanks!

  15. Material Pallete Plugin by ParamUkesh doesn't work

    So I installed this plugin. Earlier it didn't show up in my plugins tab. When it finally did show up in the tab, and I launched it my layers moved but nothing happened. Moreover, whenever I pressed any short-cut for example
    CMD + Shift + Space there wasn't any activity response.

  16. Texts formatting within the same text field looks different between windows and mac!

    Using Windows OS XD version in an artboard I created a text field using two different weight from the same font family! So now there are four lines of text in a single text field! The first line is in Bold type and Rest three lines are Light types!

    When I open this same file in Mac OS then this Text field with 4 brake lines removes all breaks between lines and converts all text in a single line, it also removes spaces between all words!

    Here I have attached a screenshot which shows the difference between both Windows and…

  17. Fonts with similar name activates wrong font from Adobe Fonts

    When designing with a font from Adobe Fonts. And then watching design in Adobe XD app on Android another font is activated automatically.

    The font i wanted to use: https://fonts.adobe.com/fonts/t26-carbon

    The font that gets activated and shows up in the XD app: https://fonts.adobe.com/fonts/carbon

    I tried deactivatinf back and forth but the wrong Carbon always activates by default.

  18. Open file stored on computer has become extremely slow after XD started automatically saving to cloud

    Hi, I didn't opt to save my files on the cloud. I saved my files on my computer, and it feels like users are being penalized for not using the cloud. It takes forever to access files from the "My computer" tab. The section takes several seconds to refresh, it happened instantly earlier, before the save to cloud.

  19. Overlay action breaks Background blur and Shadow effects


    1. Version: 14.0.42.14 (Starter) on Windows 10

    2. When I create an Overlay action between artboards (imitation of iOS notification sliding down), it does not apply Background Blur and Shadow effects (it works for Transition action).

    3. I want to blur background with shadow for Overlay action.

    4. Actual result - the background image is not blured properly and shadow effect is completely missing. Screenshot showing my artboard/settings/actual effect. Notice how line from "b" logo in the background is still visible and shadow effect is not present at all. Link: https://imgur.com/a/DDM4JET
