  1. drag disables vertical scrolling on mobile

    The 'drag' auto-animate feature is disabling my vertical scrolling when viewing in the XD iOS app. It works normally on the desktop preview, and it works normally when switching to 'tap' so it's limited to the 'drag' feature.

  5. Empty Symbol

    Adobe XD 13.1.32.8 / Macbook Pro 2017 15" / High Sierra 10.13.6

    I was able to recreate part of the an earlier bug I reported
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/35326552--empty-symbols-and-differences-between-instances

    what I did was
    - create a symbol out of a single shape
    - go inside symbol and select the rectangle
    - click 'Enter' so i can edit the vector points of the rectangle
    - press 'Delete' on the vector points one by one until all is deleted
    - you will then have an empty symbol that you can't select, modify or move around.

  6. Transitions between overlays "blink" the screen

    As I transition from one overlay to another, even setting transition to none, the screen blinks making it harder to folow the flow as is should (a wizard or onboarding for an example wich could be a modal with several steps)

    The following prototype shows this issue https://xd.adobe.com/view/f5c76125-8e6f-49e5-4719-90618721ed12-83f6/

  7. XD will not open selected file

    1. Version 5.0.12.8 (but I have experienced this bug over 6+ releases/months)

    2. Repro Steps
    A. Open any XD file (ie. first.xd) and let it load
    B. Once loaded, open any second XD file (ie. second.xd) by double clicking on the file in the Window File Explorer
    C. While the second file (second.xd) is loading, close the window for the second XD file (the one for second.xd that is still loading)
    D. Double click the second XD file (second.xd)
    E. Bug: the file does not load

    Note 1: The file can still be loaded by going into any open XD…

  8. 'align to pixel grid' changes SVG appearance

    SVGs seem to change shape when I select ”Align to pixel grid”
    1) Drag and drop an SVG file exported from Photoshop.
    2) Make it half the size in XD
    3) Right click the SVG and ”Align to pixel grid”
    4) SVG looks strange. See screenshot.

  9. Exported SVG does not import into Illustrator

    Whenever I open the SVG exported from Xd in illustrator it gives unexpected results, and specifically in illustrator the gradients get rasterised and black patches appear in place of the gradient . Ideally, a vector file like SVG exported from Xd should open the same way as it opens in Xd but when I open the file the gradient information is lost.

  11. Emoji Font not included in PDF Export

    Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta
    macOS: 10.12.6

    Bug: Emojis, that are used in textfields are not included in exported PDF-Files.

    Opening it in Acrobat Pro DC evokes this error message (German):

    "Die eingebettete Schrift "AppleColorEmoji" konnte nicht entnommen werden. Einige Zeichen werden u. U. nicht korrekt angezeigt bzw. gedruckt."

  12. 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.

  13. Can't edit text in text mask

    Like the title says - placing a text on top of an image and choosing [ ⌥⌘I ] leaves an un-editable text, even if the user goes tries to use layers [ ⌘Y ] to select the text.

  14. Opening prototype preview un-maximizes main window

    Found in Adobe XD 7.0.12.9 in Windows 10 Pro 64-bit:

    - Open XD file
    - Maximize Adobe XD's main window (the editor window)
    - Click on the play button to open the preview window
    - Preview window opens, but the main editor window is un-maximized at the same time.

  15. SVG Export Underline is Wrong

    I have a word that has two underline colors. When exporting to SVG it only uses the first color for the underline

    Exporting it as a PNG shows the underline color as expected, but with SVG it's just the first color. Screenshot shows what it looks like and the output of the SVG and PNG export

  17. Can't save on shared storage

    Linux with Windows VM

    Adobe XD running in Windows VM

    Can't save on shared hard disk in XD. But moving the .xd file from the desktop to the shared hard disk is no problem.

  18. Design Specs are not rendering the top and left edges of Repeat Grid elements. (42685)

    When you publish a Design Spec, any Repeat Grid element's top and left edges have rendering issues. The edges of the Repeat Grid are either not visible or have 1-2 px gap between them.

    Beim Veröffentlichen einer Design-Spezifikation gibt es Darstellungprobleme beim oberen und linken Rand von allen Elementen in einem Wiederholungsraster. Die Ränder des Wiederholungsrasters sind entweder nicht sichtbar oder haben eine Lücke von 1–2 px.

    デザインスペックを公開するときに、リピートグリッドのエレメントの上端と左端にレンダリングの問題が発生します。リピートグリッドの端は、表示されないか、間に 1-2 px の間隔ができます。

    디자인 사양을 게시할 때 모든 반복 그리드 요소의 위쪽과 왼쪽 가장자리에 렌더링 문제가 있습니다. 반복 그리드의 가장자리가 보이지 않거나 이들 사이에 1~2px의 간격이 있습니다.

    Lorsque vous publiez une spécification technique,…

  19. Windows scrollbar covering in the preview screen

    Please take a look at the attached screenshot. As you can see, on Windows, the vertical scrollbar is inside the preview window, covering part of the content which is not ok and looks really bad and unprofessional, especially when presenting a demo to a client.

    Hope you can fix this!

  20. Measurements between objects can no longer be seen

    When dragging a duplicate of an object horizontally, the measurement of the distance between those two objects now appears at the top of the duplicates.

    Before it would appear at the center of the two. When I create guidelines for columns, that measurement dissapears under the artboards name.

    Having it appear in the center again would be handy. At first I'd thought you'd removed that feature as I could no longer see the measurement.
