  1. Can't drag transition link from a locked item.

    With this latest update, when in prototype mode, I cannot drag a transition link from a locked item. I have to unlock the item to see the arrow which allows me to drag a link.

  2. Cloud Documents - XD vs Web View

    I see different sets of files saved to the Cloud in XD (when opening a file) and in the web view (when you go to Creative Cloud app, then Files -> View on Web).

    See the attached image. The screenshot has been taken immediately after opening both windows at the same time. Left side: Web view (in the browser), right side: XD Open File view.

    Note that both lists are sorted by name. In XD I see twi "Dialog 004 Users v4" files, in the web view - just one. In XD I see 3 "Dialog LIBRARY v4" files, in…

  3. Jira user with apostrophe has page update issue with Adobe XD add-on

    We experience an issue with Adobe XD for Jira add-on.
    We believe the issue is potentially caused by apostrophe in Jira username.

    After installing the add-on, this particular user sees page ‘freezing’ whenever she updates the ticket such as comment.
    The comment gets published, but she has to refresh page to see the update.

    She can reproduce the issue on two different machines (MacOS, Windows) with different browsers.
    Below is the error message in console log.

    Note, when we disable the add-on, the issue goes away.

    Jira version: 7.13.0
    Jira Core version: 7.13.0

  5. Dragging elements off artboard become hidden (intermittently)

    Weird issue I noticed happening the other day, and again just now. Some elements stay linked to the artboard they previously occupied even after I've dragged them off. I don't always notice this has happened, until I select an artboard and notice elements surrounding it suddenly appear, then disappear when the artboard is deselected.


    1. Version 15.0.12.8


    2. Select an element and drag it off an artboard.


    3. I expect the element to stay visible; I expect the element to stay visible even though it is not attached to an artboard.


    4. Sometimes the selected/dragged element immediately becomes hidden, even when its borders are…

  7. Drop shadow ruins image quality when exporting to pdf/svg

    When I'm trying to export my XD file in a pdf or SVG format it ruins the quality of the shape or image if I use a drop shadow. If I remove the shadow, the quality is maintained. Can you fix this problem somehow?

    Adobe XD version: 21.0.12.11

  8. Assets, color picker is missing

    I just install Adobe XD 19.1.22.6
    and follow the introduction tutorial (in app and video)

    In step 09, I notice that in the asset panel, when right click on a color and select "Edit", there is no more the color picker (pipette icon).

    I guess that would be handy to put it back.

  12. Exporting to After Effects issues

    I'm having problems with how objects are rendered in AE after export from XD.


    1. Objects with gradients are converted to JPGs

    2. Blurred object with gradient applied doesn't show up at all

    3. Shadows are rendered differently than in XD (different blur and radious)

    4. Shadows and low opacity objects don't show up in preview in AE

  15. Incorect language display of XD Review link in Microsoft Teams

    I add XD review links as tabs in Microsoft Teams. The preview mode displays German language even though I've not enabled any setting to do so. I've tried, changing the settings to French to see if I can influence this, I've tried deleting and creating a new tab, same result in all cases. This only happens in Microsoft Teams, if I use the same link in Chrome, correct language is displayed.

  16. Ungrouping components also ungroups sub-components included

    If you ungroup a component that incorporates other components, the other components are also ungrouped.

    Eg: Component is a contact form, with text, line shapes and pre-existing components for text input. If I ungroup/release this, the pre-exisiting components are also released. They stay in a group, but aren't a component anymore.

    I'd expect the ungrouping to only be 'one-level' deep.

    Hopefully that makes sense. I'm running Xd 22.0.12.12

    Hi Naomi,

    Thanks for the extra information – this happens with linked components that have nested components and you unlink the outer component. I believe there are historical reasons for this behavior, but it’s reasonable to say it is also unexpected behavior and so I have logged a bug internally for it.

    As a workaround, you could first convert the linked component in the Assets panel to a local component, and then ungroup it. That will provide the desired behavior when you ungroup the outer component.

    Thank you,
    Joe

  19. Color Assets and Document Colors work differently

    The functionality of the color swatches differs when either imported from another document or created in the current document. I would expect both to work the same way.

    I assumed that when you change a hex color it changes that color throughout the document. With imported swatches they act more as a "style" in the sense that even though that hex is the actual color of an object if the imported swatch is not applied to the object the color will not change.

    I like the idea of having styles, but I would prefer them to be called out differently…

  20. Crash trying to rename a layer by double-click

    Adobe XD 16.0.2.8, Windows 10,

    Renaming of any layer by double-click leads to crash (seldom).

    I cannot reproduce it easily by many double-clicks, but 2 per an hour Adobe XD crashes on my attempt to rename some layer by double-click.
