  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.

      • [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…

          • 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!

                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.

                  • [Windows] Data loss when uninstalling (J29407)

                    Our uninstaller takes you very literally when you say you want to uninstall: if, for some reason, Adobe XD is open, it’ll just helpfully close all of your XD documents without a warning and proceed to uninstall. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, there’s a chance as well that your documents might not actually be saved, so we recommend that you save and close all windows before updating Adobe XD.

                    • Strange effect, when tyring to distribute several objects evenly

                      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.

                                      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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Save Dialogue Should Pop up When Closing Preview While 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…
