    Greetings:

    The team has determined the impact of this issue is low. This report is also rather old (3yrs!) so it’s also likely improved in more recent releases of the app.

    If you find issues here I encourage you to file new report for best options for tracking and investigating.

    Cheers!

  2. [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…

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Some elements of an icon are missing in the exported svg file.

    1. XD for Windows (3.1.12.2)

    I exported an icon which consists of different elements. Some of them won't show in the exported file. I suspect, that this might have something to do with the fact that they are made of an union.
    I have attached 3 pics, (how/what I exported, the result, and the element missing)

  7. '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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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/

  13. 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. 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.

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

  19. 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…
