  1. Design to code inconsistencies

    In the last few projects that I have been working on wherein we have used Adobe XD for designing the front-end, there are a few issues that we have noticed and perhaps, there are ways to work around it or solutions to optimise the process either at the design level or the code level.

    Whenever I translate the Design to HTML using Adobe XD, I use the option key on my mac as a guide to understand and set the spacing between elements.

    1. In some designs, although the designer has set margins and paddings as multiples of 5 -…

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  6. 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. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. New adobe font auto-activation conflicting with font manager

    XD is auto-activating a Adobe sync font despite having the original font already active in my font manager (Extensis Suitcase Fusion). The Adobe version is messing with line-heights and disrupting the whole layout. Work around now, is I have to go online to Adobe Fonts, and disable the adobe version of the font, then my font manager version is applied in the file.

  12. 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

    Greetings:

    I’ve downloaded the resources but not clear which XD file you’re looking at.
    There’s a design template called “UIElements+DesignTemplates+Guides-iPad.xd” with element but not an artboard that specifically correlates to the iPad design size. There’s also production templates that don’t seem to have what you’re seeing. Can you share the exact name of the file?

    Thanks!

  15. scaling with responsive or not

    When you scale down an icon with the size palette the result is different from scaling down using the image corners.

    It should always be as I change the size from the corners

    Hi @Andrea,

    Thanks for the extra information. This is a known bug that we are working to fix.

    As a workaround, you can select the icon in the canvas, then go to Responsive Resize in the PI and click the switch to the left (Off). Then you should be able to resize it without breaking it apart.

    If you wish to keep the icon responsive (i.e., fix a direction), then after turning off Responsive Resize for the icon, group it, and then the group can have directions fixed while resizing.

    Best regards,
    Joe

  16. Asset Search Cursor Jumps While Typing

    Repro:

    - Search assets for “symbol 34”

    - Highlight “34” to change your search string to “symbol 35”

    - Type “35”
    - Notice: after you enter “3” the cursor jumps to the beginning of the line and adds the “5” in the wrong place

    See attached file for screenshots

    p.s. wouldn't it be great if I could paste screenshots directly into this text box like I can in Jira and other bug tracking tools :)

  18. locked item moves when parent group is dragged.

    When selecting a group that has a child element locked, all of the items inside that parent group move, including locked item. The locked item should not move with the rest of the items.

  19. 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
