      • 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.

        • 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/

          • '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.

            • 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.

                Duplicated art boards are using an unrecognized character (Dash). Impossible to zip files with exported screenshots who are using this characters.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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

                      • 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…

                        • Color picker issue when you have guidelines

                          Hi there!

                          I found a interesting bug. When I am trying to pick a color and I have guidelines active, somehow it mix with the color that I have it in my artwork.

                          Please, take a look at the picture that I attached.

                          Thank you

                            • 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.

                                • 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!

                                  • 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.

                                    • [Windows] Emoji changes to outline version when zoomed in a lot

                                      I'm not sure this is an XD thing or a Windows thing! Or an emoji thing! Either way it's more interesting than truly buggy.

                                      Adobe XD v. 0.8.22
                                      Windows 10 build 15063

                                      Color emojis change from the color version to the outline version when the document is zoomed in a whole bunch (see attachment).

                                      Steps to repro:
                                      1. Type or paste an emoji using the text tool.
                                      2. Zoom in (at least past 100%, I think it depends on the font-size of your emoji.

                                      I tested with a size 200 emoji and you only needed to zoom past 200% to…

                                      • 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.
