      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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/

            • 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.

              • [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.

                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…

                • 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

                      • [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…

                          • 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.

                            • [Mac] Selection is lost in the CC Libraries panel when Cmd+clicking quickly (39282)

                              In our fast twitch digital world, we get quite used to working as quickly as we can
                              type and click. However, our CC Libraries panel can sometimes get confused

                              recommend that you Shift+click to multi-select or slow down as you’re selecting.

                                XD desktop app canvas when you view it at a zoom level of 50% or below. The

                                • 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.

                                  • '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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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."
