  1. XD crashes when clicking on the artboard with text tool

    I have a bug in Version 2.0.32.10, when I try to use the text tool, XD crashes completely.

    My colleague doesn't have the issue, so my guess is that XD is going through all my fonts and finds something that it can't handle. Would be nice to have a general direction of what to look for.

    Thanks

      Hi, all – thanks to those of you who reported this issue in the forums as well. We were able to isolate the problem, which was related to a malformed font. We’re working on a fix right now and are planning a hotfix to address the problem. Stay tuned – we’ll Email out when it’s available.

    • [Windows 10] Ctrl activate Zoom when i hold space bar, OMG

      After the new update, when i press ctrl+shift+G or other letters the space bar become the Zoom function. The only way to get out of that is to press top right on play.

      • Lost work. Very Angry. How is this still an issue?

        Can't believe this is STILL a problem. It happens all the time.

        1) Leave computer with files open and unsaved, it goes to sleep
        2) Wake computer up, XD is no longer running
        3) Launch XD, a bunch of windows open up, even if I didn't have them open when the computer went to sleep
        4) The files that I was working on do not show the latest changes and reverts back to the last saved version.

        Isn't UWP supposed to help prevent the need to constantly manually save files? Why not back up / save the last copy in…

        • Font weight names change between Mac & Windows (Bold/Negreta & Italic/Cursiva)

          When moving back and forth from XD-Windows to XD-Mac, I have to change the font names of Segoe UI various weights. So "Bold" on XD-Windows = "Negreta" on XD-mac; "Italic" on XD-Windows = "Cursiva" on XD-Mac. Is this a language setting or something that I can change to remedy this?

          • [Win 10 Fall Creators Update] Use of the "Bring to Front" (or Back) keyboard shortcut jams the shift key if Ctrl is pressed first

            1. XD 1.0.12.19 (Windows 10 Pro 1709, 16299.19)
            2.
            a) Draw two objects in a new document
            b) Select one of them
            c) Execute the "Bring to Front" keyboard shortcut, but hit the keys in the order Ctrl + Shift + ] (The shortcut is listed as Shift + Ctrl + ], but doing it in this order does not cause the issue.)
            d) Take all fingers off the keyboard, holding nothing down.
            e) Click on the other object

            3. Expected result:
            The first object is deselected, and the second one is selected

            4. Actual result:
            The second object is…

            • 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.

              • Pen tool rendering "dashes" on 1px lines.

                Version: 1.0.12.19, CS 2.4.3.114

                1px lines drawn with the pen tool are creating a 1px darker color every 12th pixel. Shows in design mode Zoomed at 100% and .png's exported @1x. Increasing the Border size to 2px+ fixes the issue. Looks to happen on all border colors but more noticeable on bright colors.

                • Repeat Grid inside Symbol cannot have different text in each copy of symbol

                  I have the following layer structure

                  - Symbol
                  .... - Headline
                  .... - Repeat Grid
                  ........ - Text (This is where the bug occurs)
                  ........ - Shape

                  I have this symbol inside multiple art boards.

                  The text instance override inside the repeat grid only works for the first grid item (i.e. the source item).

                  If I change the text in any other repeat grid instance, it is propagated across every symbol.

                  • Leftover pixels are added to right margin without reporting it

                    When the grid is center, the right margin is false, 6 pixels too short.

                      • XD crashes when launching on High Sierra

                        For some setups, launching XD on High Sierra will result in a kernel panic and the application will crash.

                        The crash log may look like:

                          We are tracking the issue and will keep you posted as it progresses. Currently, it looks like external hardware may be the most likely cause, so you may want to unplug as many devices as possible and see if that helps you keep going until we can get this fixed.

                        • [Windows] Text tool is crashing XD

                          The text tool crashes XD 90% of the time. All I have to do is select an existing text box to edit the text and XD will freeze then shut down. Creating text boxes and typing is usually fine but when I want to come out of the text editor it freezes and shuts down. No other tool is causing me any problems.

                          • Parsing links bug in prototype comments

                            During team discussions in prototype mode, I discovered a bug with how links are parsed. If the link includes a query string, that query is ignored when the link is parsed.

                            Example:
                            Commented link: https://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1653

                            Parsed link: <a href>https://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp</a>?1653

                            The only work around is that the user must copy and paste the entire link to view it.

                            • [Windows] Sidebar text boxes clear when selecting and hitting left/right arrow

                              1. Select an element on canvas
                              2. Click on a text box in the sidebar, e.g. X or the Width
                              3. At this point the current numbers gets selected. Hit the right arrow
                              4. The cursor should move to the end of the text box, but instead the contents get deleted.

                              This is pretty annoying when changing a lot of values (e.g. to draw symetrical icons, you have no way but to calculate and input values manually, this issue makes it even more painful). I think this problem wasn't in earlier versions.

                              • set font-style when selecting all characters in text

                                Before, I could change only selected characters font-style even if I selected all characters in the text object.

                                So, I can design the calendar UI very easily. (please play the video)
                                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCImsSCCHXc

                                But it does not work as it is.
                                The color of text objects in repeat grid was replaced by new one.

                                  Thank you for letting us know about this. We’re looking into the issue, but a little more information would be a huge help. Could you send us a copy of your XD file, and the text file you used to populate it?

                                  For repeat grids, the general rule of thumb is that if all the text is selected when you make a character style change (font family, font style, font size, char spacing, or fill), then all copies of that item in the repeat grid will get that change. Otherwise, if only part of the text is selected, that change will not be propagated. It looks like you’re seeing something in between, where the style change propagates to some but not all copies, which doesn’t sound right.

                                  Thanks again for your help tracking this down,
                                  -Bear

                                  • [Mac] Images not appearing in mobile app when opacity set to less than 100%

                                    If you set the opacity on an image to less than 100% and then run the previewer, those images won't appear. I had some black icons (PNG format) which I was too lazy to redo in grey. They weren't appearing in the mobile app. As soon as I set them back to 100%, they were there.

                                    • Hotkeys stop working

                                      Version 0.6.32.12 Beta [Win]

                                      Hotkeys (Shift+Ctrl+[, Shift+Ctrl+], Ctrl+C) stop working suddenly. Unfortunately, I cannot provide steps to reproduce situation, but it just happens. Reopening app fixes 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…
