[Win 10] Pasting objects stops working after a while
Windows version 10.0.17134
Adobe XD version 18.104.22.168
Creative Cloud Sync version 22.214.171.124
I needed to update the drop shadows on several tiles across several artboards, so I hit Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Alt+V to copy and paste the appearance of my desired tiles to the rest. After repeating the process, the paste command would stop working.
This bug extends to regular pasting. I can cut (and possibly copy) an object and its appearance, but I cannot paste it back onto an artboard. The only way to fix this is to restart XD, which gets very annoying if I have several documents open for reference.
Thanks for the details Harry. The team has seen problems with copy/paste on Win10 RS5 (preview). I do see you’re on RS4…
There was a different performance issue discovered in XD 126.96.36.199 for which there’s a patch (under Windows only), https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/known-issues.html
Would you mind going ahead and updating to see if this helps?
Minimizing the window, and then returning works (most of the time), however it's a short term fix, and extremely painful. This issue has existed since I started using XD and is so frustrating. A number of my teammates at work also experience the issue.
Nina, this is different from the other bug you mentioned. I'm aware of that one and actually tried the workaround method. This was only affecting copying/pasting and required a full application restart, but I did not test it thoroughly to confirm the extent of the bug.
