  1. Resize causes random alignment mismatch and unpredictable size

    I was trying to follow the 1 day of adobe XD progressive challenge, but could not keep with the pace due to the bugs. You guys need to just follow your own tutorials by a few folks at your workplace to discover many of them.

    See the attached file to see the bug.

  2. Dashed lines not rendering properly

    Hi, I was trying to create a dashed line but it rendered kinda weird.
    here are what I did
    > Duplicated a rectangle (with fill) which was 1px height
    > switched it to stroke to make it dashed
    - checked stroke
    - unchecked fill
    - used stroke color picker (the one outside) to pick color from fill color indicator rectangle (stupid i know)
    > added dashes but noticed dashes were kinda odd looking
    > changing stroke size does nothing, and changing gaps/dashes doesn't make it any less weird.

  3. Bugs with specific fonts

    There's a few font's when used that don't allow me to

    - Copy the text to another artboard
    - Copy the text on the same artboard
    - Alt copy shortcut doesn't work anymore
    - It won't let me ctrl-z anything on the artboard anymore
    - Text deleted with font on all artboards when saving > closing > re-opening

    I used the font "Twister" in this regard, I have to restart XD when I use this font cause it won't let me Ctrl - z or copy things anymore, on start up the font is gone on every artboard.

    Is this…

  6. Unable to copy paste anything...

    New XD user and loving it BUT I can't seem to copy anything from one file to another. I'm pretty tech savvy so i've done reinstall restart and so forth but the problem remains the same. I'm using XD on Windows 10-64b machine.

    Also, when i click on hamburger icon > plugins > select Plugins, what is supposed to happen after the selection? I don't see anything on the screen!

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. 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'.

  15. 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

    Cheers!

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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!
