Bug: freeze when dragging layers
I've had this happen a couple times. I try to drag a layer when designing and it freezes over everything on my monitor. Only fix i've found is restarting my computer. Super annoying - please fix. Thanks!
I've also experienced this issue over several versions of XD, and am still experiencing it on the latest version.
Current XD version: 126.96.36.199
OS: Windows 10.0.17134 Build 17134
Yes, it happens all the time for me, usually when I have a few files open at the same time, and I have to close everything and end any background process before restarting. It adds a like 'stop or block' icon on top of the layer you're trying to move, and it stays there until I restart everything.
Dragging is not the easiest thing in XD. It's fiddly, it's like the layer sticks in place and I have to try grabbing it from different parts of the layer, closer to the icon seems to work better but it's not always like that.
Latest version, but it has been going on for many versions.
I keep experiencing this issue. Seems to occur when working with a document containing 75+ artboards. Been experiencing this since last year.
XD Version: 188.8.131.52
OS: Windows 10 Pro v1803
GFX: Nvidia GTX 670 - Driver v184.108.40.20639
Number of layers: Varies. Just occurred on artboard containing 11 layers
I get this quite often as well, and requires restarting XD every few hours since it blocks all layer tree dragging operations afterwards.
When I quit XD it says that it's "sharing" data or something, so not sure if that's helpful (eg. it thinks it's dragging the layer into another app, and gets stuck somehow)

I noticed this happens when I'm working in a document that I save in the Cloud. It always happens right before it auto-saves. I see it go from "Edited.." to "Saving..."
I have this exact bug too. Details:
XD Version: 220.127.116.11, March 11 2019 Update
OS: Windows 10 v1083
Number of layers: Varies. I experience this bug quite often. Just had the bug with a 15-layer art board
Seems to happen with all docs

Hi Lauren and Drew,
Could you please share more details like
- XD version
- OS version
- Number of layers in the document
- Do you see it with single document or it happens with all?
Above details would help us in debugging the issue better.
I have something similar though it usually only freezes an image of the layer I'm dragging and that image will just stay on screen even after closing the application. It also prevents any other layer dragging functions. I have to kill the process in task manager and reopen for it to go away.
