  1. Undo (cmd + z) stops working

    I have discovered that the undo function (cmd + z) stops working in XD after I have worked on a document for a while. Things that I typically undo is positioning of elements. Undo starts working again if you quit and reopen XD.

    This has happened a few times the last week.

    Environment details:
    - macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6
    - Adobe XD version 11.0.22.10

    • 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?

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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

            • 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!
                  Nina

                    • 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

                      • 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.

                            • Cutting and pasting text does not retain font size, weight or colour

                              Cutting and pasting text either from within the same text box or a different text box does not retain font size, weight or colour - it defaults to whatever the settings are in the above sentence or paragraph. Have to continuously customise each separate returned line.

                                Greetings Eddie:

                                You can retain style colors in the following ways:
                                - Select text object with color + font you’d like to replicate, save character style in assets
                                - Select text object, copy then type new text – this should have the same color + font from previous text object

                                If you click into text object and select the text, it will copy the words but not the styles. Is it possible this is what you’re doing?

                                For reference, here’s a blog post and help page for working with the assets panel, https://theblog.adobe.com/working-assets-panel-adobe-xd/
                                https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/assets-symbols.html

                                Hope this helps!

                              • Underline

                                Having issues with underline type, whenever I change the style within a paragraph of text, i'll save, close the document...when i open it the formatting is applied to another area of text (not the text i specified to be underlined). Same with copying artboards, the underline font appears in a different position of the copy.

                                  • Text rendering is low quality in desktop app (but it is fine when selected or in browser review)

                                    Using ver: 14.0.42.14 on Windows 10 64 bit

                                    All text elements on the desktop app (in both design and prototype) are pixelated and have bad kerning.

                                    If I select the text box so it is in edit mode, the text is correct (smooth, anti-aliased and moves to the correct position) - Upon moving away from the text box it returns to a low quality.

                                    If I export artboard as .png it remains low quality.
                                    If I review the prototype in browser is high quality and everything is correct.

                                    I have just moved from using Xd on OSX (Retina) to using…

                                    • Adobe XD glitch - export x2 retina SOLUTION

                                      XD never exported artboards at the correct retina size when I chose 2x
                                      Instead I exported artboards at 1x for Web
                                      and this produced correctly sized 100% artwork and retina artwork!
                                      Sharp as in invision

                                      • Colour change on export

                                        I get a massive colour shift with the latest update of XD all the bright colours in the PNG exports are dull?

                                        This is a disaster as you can see from the example screen shot.

                                        Left is the XD file and right is the exported PNG.

                                        This is a new 'feature'.

                                        • ellipse line centering

                                          When I try to allign the line to the center or the circle or ellipse, it is not alligning to the center of the side, but it is shifted a little bit.
