  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

    • XD is slower to respond in MacOS 10.14

      Since MacOS Mojave, the app will start to lag after being open for a period of time (5-10mins). If you close and open XD again, the problem will go away temporarily, until another 5-10 mins.

      • 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

            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

          • 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.

              • 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.

                  • 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

                    • Vertically symmetric vectors are inverted

                      It seems that the direction of the vector is inverted when a certain figure (probably vertically symmetrical figure) is put on the artboard.

                      • Plug in-No escape hatch?

                        The Plug-in Icondrop is very frustrating and a hassle to use. The first issue is when you try to use the plug-in, You MUST sign up for an account. Well, that's when the second issue arrises. You MUST sign up for an account, there's no way to back out of it. You can't close the app, you can't save your work, you can't do anything unless you sign up for this stupid account. This is such a waste of time, and should be fixed or eliminated.

                          Hello Courtney:

                          I think this is something the plugins can do better in reflecting. You should be able to hit ESC and exit the plugin.

                          Some plugins do require user accounts which at the discretion of the developer. We gave it a go on our end and it’s working so not sure what could be going on for you. I encourage you to contact Icondrop directly with details, https://support.iconscout.com/hc/en-us
                          https://support.iconscout.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

                          Cheers!

                        • Width and Height fields are not horizontally aligned with one another

                          Windows 10. XD version 13.1.32.8 (Starter)

                          The width and height fields and the line under them are not horizontally aligned with each other. Width is offset to the right by roughly 5 pixels.

                          Small thing, but a design apps gotta have good design, right?

                              • Symbol paste reverts text

                                Copy and paste a group with a symbol that has the text that has been edited.
                                Reverts to the symbol text.

                                Bit annoying when copying groups between docs. Would prefer edited text was maintained.

                                • Exported SVG is displayed empty after running it through optimizer

                                  1. Adobe XD 13.1.32.8

                                  2. I exported an SVG from Adobe Experience Designer and our developer uploaded it to our developement environment (developing in react and bootsstrap). During the upload the SVG runsthrough an image optimizer (sadly I don't know, which one exactly) we use to optimize our web performances.

                                  3. We have never had the issue with non-adobe xd SVGs or images.
                                  When exporting with another tool (Sketch, Illustrator etc.) the SVG is displayed as intended.

                                  4. The uploaded SVG is displayed empty in our development environment.

                                    Greetings:

                                    Thanks for the detailed steps! It would definitely help to learn which SVG optimizer is being used.

                                    When you say the file is empty, where is it being opened that you observe this behavior? How is the SVG generated? Are you choosing File>Export and setting format to SVG?

                                    If you haven’t already, load the problem SVG into web browser

                                    If possible, can you share the following files:
                                    - XD project, with details on which assets are being exported to SVG
                                    - The exported SVG file where you observe the problem

                                    To submit, post to cloud storage (Dropbox, WeTransfer.com etc) and email to xduv@adobe.com

                                    Thanks!

                                    当我切换到原型窗口再回到设计窗口时,对象属性面板中的透明度调整滑块的蓝色/灰色进度条会消失
                                    When I switch the window from to Prototype and back to Design mode window, the controller of the objects' alpha will lose it's appearance of the slide bar (blue/gray).

                                    • Text boxes do not import correctly from Photoshop

                                      When I import a file from Photoshop to XD, all of the text moves to the upper left hand corner of the canvas and is grouped in strange arrangements. I've attached the example psd and resulting xd file below. This happens with every PSD file I open.

                                          Greetings:

                                          What keyboard shortcut modifier in addition to AltGr? Can you use the special characters you mention by selecting them in the keyboard directly? They do work for me on EN setup with RS4 + XD13.

                                          Have you by any chance installed any plug-ins? It’s possible the developer may have mapped the keyboard shortcut previously set by the OS for these special characters.

                                          Thanks!

                                          There are many programs that don't give you an option to get out of the system. You have to proceed and "sign-up". The only way to get out of it is by opening your task manager and forcing XD to quit... not the ideal. Thanks!
