  1. Layout Constraints are hiding interactive view

    Using Chrome, Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit), on a Mac Cinema Display. When I put the browser window on the bottom half of the screen the layout constraints for the top bar and bottom bar of the app demo website don't allow the app demo to be shown.

        Thanks for filing the issue! This is a known UWP issue that only happens when you maximize the Start screen. Given that it doesn’t block you from getting started, we’re deferring this bug and focusing on more functional issues.

        • png w/alpha - fill colour change kills png

          V 0.6.12.17 Beta - on OSX 10.10.5

          Importing a .png (with alpha) into XD - if you change or reset the 'fill color' - it obliterates the .png completely. In Sketch (for example), changing the fill colour of a .png will affect only the non-transparent pixles in the object.

            6.8.6 Beta
            1. Create several Path object (Square, closed and open path objects) that one ususally creates for icons ect.
            All of the about the same size of about 24 x 24 px but not exactly. Some of them are closed path, but most of them groups, incl. compounds. None of them is locked, one is rotated by 45 Degree

            2. Select all of them
            3. Navigate edit to pallette
            4. Click Distribute vertically (mort top right icon)

            Expected result
            All of the element distribute vertically

            Result
            Unexpected non equal distribution. When clicking it several times they start move down…

            • Problem with box containers (exactly same problem in Sketch)

              Bounding box for text layers: it randomly adds extra space above or below, and doesn't crop the bounding box straight to the top and bottom of the text.

              It is really difficult to measure properly, work in pixel perfect and give the specs for the devs.

              Please fix it! :-)

                Unfortunately, this problem comes from the operating system and is not something we can fix reliably. However, as I mentioned in my last comment, it’s very likely that what your developers see in XD is exactly how they will have to program them when they get to implementation.

                We’re not planning to fix this bug, so I’m closing it out.

                    • I can not update the (120x120) display icon after setting it once.

                      After setting the (120 x 120) Icon and updating the existing link for my prototype I cannot edit or delete the (120x120) icon. How can I manually delete or edit this image?

                        All the dingbat fonts -- Webdings, Wingdings & Zapf Dingbats -- do not work in XD. They just print normal text when typed.

                        • Shared Prototype is slightly blurry when viewed online on desktop (1x) monitor

                          I have noticed when sharing a prototype online, the artboard designs are slightly blurred compared to crisp designs I've made inside the Xd software. The colours are also slightly darker on the web than it is in the Xd.

                          Please do email me for screenshots if needed, as I am unable to share my work publicly.

                          • Recording on VMware black screen

                            When starting the preview and recording, I can see everything fine, but once I save the file and open the .mov the screen is black and I can only see the cursor.

                            I'm using El Capitan latest version and Adobe Xd latest update as of 25 May 16

                              Unfortunately, we will not be supporting recording in a VM instance right now. As I said before, it’s likely that it’s a problem with the way that VM handles recording.

                              1) Request: When a Preview record is in progress, have a save dialogue pop up when the user hits the "x" to exit the preview window.

                              2) Why it matters: I was doing a user test using the Preview and using the record feature (which is awesome) and when the test was over I hit the "x" to close the Preview popup window.

                              I was expecting a save dialogue box to come up, let me save it, then close the live Preview window. I was surprised and irritated when it just closed the window without saving the UX test I…

                              • Rectangle corners are blurry after converting to path

                                A result of this (not a) bug - https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/13617837-double-clicking-an-object-changes-anchor-points?tracking_code=20a32bd8ad7b4670a021b8288f73f03e.

                                After a rectangle is double-click, converting it to a path, zooming out to 100% the corner pixels are faded and look blurry.

                                On the "Oil & Gas" checkbox (path) you can just about see that the corners are faded and look blurry.

                                Then you notice that the x pos is now 259.5 and the y is 383.5 - so you change it to round numbers and it looks even worse.

                                There is/was no border-radius applied.

                                • Layer selection

                                  I am not sure if this is a bug or UX issue, sometimes I cannot select the layer I want. tThe handles are stuck at the background layer. I need to deselect the background layer and try to select my target layer again. Sometimes I need to repeat this several times in order to select my target layer. Since there are no layer list I cannot understand if it is because of layer hierarchy. I need to be able to understand what I have done wrong if it is because of my usage.

                                  • Different Screen Heights Cause Wobble on Transition

                                    If you have two screens setup for iphone 6 for example, but you eidt the height of one to be higher, as you move between the two screens you get a strange wobble effect as it loads.

                                    • Renaming a new color palette [in old Mac native colorpicker]

                                      Version of Adobe XD: 0.5.0.4
                                      Steps:
                                      . Create a new project from iPhone 6
                                      . Select the Artboard
                                      . Select the "Fill" option to change Artboard's background color
                                      . Go to "Color Palettes"
                                      . Add a new one using the "Gear" icon
                                      . Click on the "Gear" icon and select "Rename"
                                      . The Color Panel closes =/

                                      Expected result: A new panel with a textfield so user can type the new name for the palette

                                      Actual result: The color panel closes =/

                                      5. Here's a quick video. Note that it is not possible to Remove a color palette =/

                                      • [Windows] Drag/drop from Explorer to XD stops working (47735)

                                        Once in a while, drag and drop simply stops working. Recovery is not always successful. This may be related to GPU NVIDIA drivers. While we are investigating this issue, as a workaround you may try restarting your machine or updating those drivers.

                                        Windows uniquement : la fonctionnalité de glisser/déposer de l’Explorateur vers XD cesse parfois de fonctionner sous Windows
                                        De temps à autre, la fonctionnalité de glisser-déposer cesse de fonctionner. Une restauration n’est pas toujours possible. Cela peut être dû aux pilotes des processeurs graphiques NVIDIA. Pendant que nous nous penchons sur ce problème, vous pouvez essayer de le contourner en…

                                        • [Web] Design Spec copied link is lost after Adobe XD is closed. (45432)

                                          When you a copy a link to the Design Spec, you expect it to be available to paste. While this seems straight forward, we are working to resolve a known issue where the design spec link is no longer available to paste after quitting XD.

                                          Wenn Sie einen Link zur Design-Spezifikation kopieren, würden Sie eigentlich erwarten, dass er anschließend für Einfüge-Operationen verfügbar ist. Leider ist nach dem Beenden von XD der Design-Spezifikations-Link nicht mehr verfügbar. Wir arbeiten an der Lösung dieses bekannten Problems.

                                          디자인 사양으로 링크를 복사하면 붙여넣기가 가능한 것이 정상입니다. 간단한 문제처럼 보이지만, XD 종료 후 디자인 사양 링크를…
