  2. Color issues

    Hexcodes appear very different between art boards. Looks like it gets an opacity change without it actually being changed. The opacity slider says its 100% but the color obviously isn't showing opaque.

    Colors suddenly changes opacity from 100% and when its closed and then opened the opacity has changed.


    The checkbox next to the color square in the front UI is sometimes totally black and sometimes its not possible to click in the box to turn a border color or fill color on, this has been an ongoing issues since day one with XD.

    Also, the color picker keeps disappearing.…

  3. Clicking "Edit Master Component" causes the master component to go to the top of the layers panel

    Adobe XD Version: 20.0.12.10
    This bug seems to have been introduced in the latest update of XD and is present on both Windows and Mac.

    Steps:
    1. Click on a master component and observe that it is not the top item in the layers panel
    2. Click on a child component on the same or different artboard
    3. Click "Edit Master Component" on the child component

    Actual Result:
    After clicking "edit master component", it causes the master component to go to the top of the layers panel thus resulting in it being moved forward in the Z-index. This is incredibly…

  4. Overridden properties are reset after the linked component updated

    Overridden child components will be reset/removed after the parent linked component updates.
    Watch the `bug demo` video in the attachment for more details.

    This Bug can be reproduced by following steps:
    1. Create a new XD file.
    2. Copy all three components in `source file` to the new file created in step 1.
    3. Replace `icon-oval` with `icon-rect` in the `list-cell` copied in step 2.
    4. Override the fill color of `icon-rect` to #ff0000(or any different color).
    5. Switch back to `source file`. Update the text position in the master component of `list-cell`.
    6. Save the changes of `source file`. …

    Hello Sean, Su

    Thanks for your report, including the steps and movie. It is reproducible, and I have logged a bug internally for it.

    In general, overrides in linked components are respected. But in this case, the bug occurs when you have replaced a nested component in a linked component, and then make a new component from this linked component. After updating the master component in the source file, the replaced nested component does indeed revert back to the prior nested component in the linked component, so the “replaced” override is getting lost.

    As a temporary workaround until it’s fixed, if you instead first create the new component from the linked component and then replace the nested component – when you update the master component in source you won’t encounter the bug.

    Kind regards,
    Joe

  5. Pasting clipboard shapes while editing the artboard name freezes the software

    If I copy shapes to the clipboard and accidentally paste it while editing the artboard name the software almost crashes, takes around 3-5 mins to come back and paste the SVG code of the shapes I did copy before.
    I wish you guys could block the ability to paste the shapes SVG codes while editing the artboard name.
    This silly mistake has been happening a lot to me, renaming artboards properly is something crucial for my work and I'm used to copying and pasting other artboard names and edit just a part of it. But it happens that between renaming…

  6. 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…

  7. Component overrides buggy with duplication/copy & paste

    I can't believe Adobe has shipped this version of Xd, this is the latest in a long line of bugs that is making my week really really difficult.

    Components seem to retain overrides randomly.

    1. v 19.1.22.6

    2.
    - Create master component (text using character style, icons) in document A. (Also, why isn't this instance automatically assigned as the master?)
    - Use component on artboard in this document. Make a text change.
    - Paste this artboard into a new document (B). Component is linked.
    - This component has randomly overriden the text styles and content (neither now match the master…

  8. Copy Paste artboard as PNG instead of svg code

    Previously, when copying an artboard and pasting in slack or Jira, it would paste the image as a png file. This was incredibly handy as it kept me from having to export the artboard. I could just copy and paste the image in another program. NOW, when I copy an artboard and paste in another program, it pastes the SVG code instead of the image. This is so so frustrating and has really slowed down my workflow

  9. 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.

  10. Cannot Rename objects, or Art boards, Xd freezes then crashes

    XD Version: 21.1.12.3
    OS: Windows 10

    At Present I am unable to rename any object, group, component, or art board in XD. I can double click and right click to rename it but XD doesn't accept keyboard input, or when it does it appears to white out the height or width of the attribute editor panel.

    Restarting XD only appears to reset the bug and it will begin happening after a short period of work. In a recent rare case I was no longer able to deselect an object to rename another which resulted in XD crashing.

    I can't share…

  11. 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

  12. 'paragraph spacing' causes 'point text' to behave differently

    Changing area text into point text usually leaves the text layout the same but changes the bounding box to only large enough to contain the text. I do this often as I like text areas to be snapped to the smallest height of the content but retain the width I want. With a paragraph spacing set on a text area converting to point text distributes the lines of text in the same size frame instead of leaving the text and changing the frame.

    Steps to reproduce:
    -create a text area with more than one paragraph in it
    -add paragraph spacing …

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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

  18. Rotating and Scaling

    When I merge and then rotate objects the responsive resize moves behaves in such a way that it doesn't take into account rotation instead inheriting its anchor from the original group.

  19. Unable to move preview window to other Desktop on Mac

    How to recreate (view attached file as well)
    - Open an XD file on a Mac
    - Launch the preview window
    - On the trackpad, swipe up with 3 fingers to see currently open windows (should also see additional desktops at the top of the screen)
    - The XD preview window disappears, so you can't move it to another Desktop

    Previously, until a recent update, the XD preview window appeared with all other open windows when swiping up with 3 fingers, and you could click and drag it to another desktop.

    Computer is a Mid-2014 Macbook pro running macOS Mojave…
