  1. Master component changes do not update on children if master has subcomponents

    Version: XD19

    Steps:
    1) Create a rectangle with a black fill, convert that rectangle to a component.
    2) Use an instance of that new component to create another component (perhaps in addition to a text layer so those two together make up a button)
    3) Change the master of that button component to have a red background color
    4) The instances of that button component do not reflect the red background, even though they have 0 overrides

    Expected: Changes in a master component get reflected in its children
    Result: Child components retain the initial state, even though they have no…

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks for your reply. Apologies if I was unclear – I didn’t mean to say that all your nested components must be master components, but to demonstrate that if you are editing master components, the edits will propagate to the other instances.

    So in the original example you posted, you were actually overriding the fill color in a nested instance (not a master component). If instead, you right-clicked on the nested instance and chose ‘Edit Master Component’, your viewport would have panned to the master component, and then any changes you made to the master component would propagate to its instances. It doesn’t matter if the instance is nested in another component or not.

    So nested components are fully supported in this new master/instance model, but the important thing to remember is you must edit the master component, either directly in the parent component or by right-clicking on…

  2. Zoom in/out not working anymore

    "Cmd" + "+" and "Cmd" + "-" with "+" and "-" on the keypad on right side of the keyboard stop working on the new version 19.0.22.9. Very Awefull to work when you're used to do with this shortcut. I'm loosing time for nothing and can't explain why this shortcut doesn't work anymore. Tried to restard Mac/xD - Uninstall/Install ... nothing change

    Thanks for the additional details Winter! I’d like to ask for a bit more help from you to see if I can understand what’s going on.

    Can you confirm the zoom tool works? Do you have an external monitor connected? Can ou disconnect? We were seeing some incompatibility with display drivers and XD on Mac.

    If you can share video showing the problem that would be useful (I use Licecap to capture animated gif).

    Thanks!
    Nina

  3. Slow performance when reordering assets

    Version 19.0.22.9

    Reordering assets is very slow. The blue bar that shows where the assets are going to be dropped simply doesn't show up a lot of the time. To move assets far down the list, it requires dragging and dropping several times, and each time I'm just guessing where it will be dropped. Often it doesn't move at all and I have to try again.

    I'm working in a cloud saved document (as that seems to be the only way to share color and character assets across files). It seems to try saving every time I drag assets, which…

  4. Duplicated elements inside non-master components despite master reset...

    Title says everything, I have no way to reproduce this...

    I have a master document with all my master components, one of them has a nested component, everything is working fine with the others, even when they have nested components BUT this one.

    What's happening is that in a project file (not the master one), all it's instances have a duplicate of the nested component, even after a reset, even after deleting the component from the library...

    Any ideas?

  5. Items keeps going into the pasteboard instead of within the artboard

    Trying to create auto animate between two artboards. When I need to put the items outside the artboard, it goes into the pasteboard.

    There is a workaround to put them in the group so a part of it stays in the artboard. But it's still not good enough.

  7. Unable to select multiple layers across multiple groups

    If two layers live in different groups, it's not possible to select them both. A use case for this is attempting to change the fill color for multiple layers, but they all live in different groups. This is standard functionality in other design tools.

    See screen recording: https://www.dropbox.com/s/98yflc2nz9w3xlw/select-from-multiple-groups.mov?dl=0

    ^ I'm holding the Command key while trying to select multiple layers.

    It seems this bug was marked as "by design" in a previous post, but I'd like to raise the issue again since this is a major pain point for me. Anyone else agree?

  8. Repeat grid missing after export to jpg

    I discovered that some of my repeat grids are missing after exporting to jpg.

    For example, I have very long page for some project (25000px height) and there are multiple repeat grids on same page. I made first one and copied whole repeat grids 3 times. After I export my design as jpg, the 1st and 2nd one are there, but 3rd one is missing after export. I tried to move my 3rd repeat grid up, just bellow 2nd one and then it's there, but that's not option for me, I need this repeat grid at the end of the…

  10. Gradient direction is different when saved into assets panel

    When I'm trying to use a gradient from my assets it works, but not in the direction I saved it in.

    1. Created gradient on shape
    2. Added gradient to assets (the preview in the assets shows how I saved it, in the correct way)
    3. Applying this gradient works, but the direction is from top to bottom instead of left to right.

    Feel free to ask for more information! Added a image, right button is how it is applyed while it should apply like the left button.

  11. unselectable layers under blocked layer

    When I block a layer (A) that cover a layer (B) the layer (B) is not selectable.
    this is a problem for designers from photoshop ,it use a different more logical behavior. In PS when i block a layer (A) a can't do nothing to it but i can easly select everything is "behind". In XD the only solution is move the Layer (A) and it is not a good UX for a Ux software :-D

  12. XD pastes last copied thing from XD and not other applications

    Adobe XD 11 (August 2018)
    Macbook Pro 15" 2017 - Mac OS High Sierra

    Sometimes when I copy from illustrator and paste to XD, it will paste the last thing i copied from XD itself. However if i go back to illustrator and past, it will paste what it copied from illustrator.

    I know this is an Adobe XD issue because I encounter the same issues sometimes trying to copy images from web.

    Closing XD and opening it again, does solve the issue.
    but this bug has been here since I believe June release

  14. When applying updates to new components nested inside old components, the positioning of the elements inside the new component is broken

    I will describe my experience, should be easier to explain :

    I have an "old" Adobe XD file, created before the major components update. I have "old" components inside this file.

    I have created a new Adobe XD project to use as a component sheet.

    I've created new components in the new Adobe XD file. I copied one of them and pasted it inside an old component of the old file.

    Back in the new file I've made changes in one of the new components and saved.

    Back in the new file, I've updated the imported component and it broke…

  15. Copy paste from Illustrator doesn't work

    Copy/paste a shape with an outline and a transparent fill from illustrator to XD doesn't produce anything.

    It works if there is a fill or if I expand the appearance.

    It seems that the bug exists only with a transparent background.

  16. Layer drag rejection icon stays on top

    Hi there,

    I've had this happen to me about 5 times now, using the latest version of adobe xd ( 18.0.12.9)

    I've tried to move layers in the layers panel and sometimes the icon for the layer drag rejection freezes and stays on top with the layer name). This also effects coming out of the program where you can see just icon. I will show that too.

    Thanks

  17. Mark for export - Selecting All to Unmark

    Since the latest release of XD marking all new assets imported as "Mark for Export" its been hard unchecking them all. The new feature claims you can select all and toggle the mark for export option, however if something is already marked for export within a folder, it stays marked unless you specifically go into that folder.

    Version of Adobe XD: 17.0.12.11
    Steps to reproduce the issues: Having a element that is "Mark for export" then using "Select All" on the document/Page and toggling "Mark for Export" on and off to clear.
    Expected result: All marked elements become unmarked on…

  20. vectors copy by themselves

    Version: 14.0.42.14

    It happens when I create an element or copy, and XD make copies under the object.
    I saw it when I was moving elements or when i'm selecting them and there was many copies under them.

    The solution is the XD stop make copies by itself.

    Ps.: Befores it was happening on macOS High Sierra (Version 10.13.4), then I updated my system, now i'm using macOS Mojave (Version 10.14) and keep happening
