    • pdf export blurry images (with shadow) and file size

      When exporting to pdf, the file size becomes quite huge.
      Additionally, the images that have a shadow (added in XD, image is jpeg) become blurry and the text (in the image) unreadable. It's no problem without shadow.

      • Unable to reliably sync XD files with CC to team members

        Hi there.

        I have a team of multiple users trying to sync folders of XD files up to Creative Cloud and then down to computers so that we can always all have the latest versions of files. This is an integral function for us to have cloud control over our files. We are all located remotely around the world. Over the last few weeks we have all had issues with syncing on and off.

        ISSUE:
        - Member 1 adds XD file to CC folder on local machine (or saves file updates).
        - Member 2,3,4 can see update in Cloud but…

        • プロトタイプのコメント機能で、漢字変換を確定させるためのキー操作がコメントを投稿してしまう

          ウェブブラウザでプロトタイプを閲覧している時に使えるコメント機能に関するバグの報告です。

          再現方法
          1. コメント入力欄に日本語を入力する
          2. 漢字変換を確定させるためにキーボードのEnterキーを押す
          3. 変換の確定と同時にコメントが投稿されてしまう。

          私が期待していた動作
          1. コメント入力欄に日本語を入力する
          2. 漢字変換を確定させるためにキーボードのEnterキーを押す
          3. 漢字の変換が確定される
          4. 未確定の変換が残っていない状態でEnterキーを押すとコメントが投稿される

          すでに投稿されたコメントを編集するときも同様のことが起こります。
          コメント機能がとても使いづらくなっているので急いで直していただきたいです。

          • Exporting SVG is not accurate

            Importing into Illustrator brings some issues concerning the correct color assignation for some elements. Everything else seems to be at the correct place.
            In internet browsers the svg file looks alright but my colleagues have issues importing the files into their development environment, same as I do in illustrator.
            Please fix!

              Hi,

              There is no error with the exported SVG – it is perfectly valid. When i imported back in XD it looks fine as well. The browsers are not performing any error correction for the SVG as you mention below.

              Cheers,
              M.

                Thanks for sharing additional files and details over email!

                After some investigation determine the artboard width was custom so it was causing full screen to default to showing all contents of artboard despite viewport/scrolling settings.

                However, when setting artboard size to default web 1920, setting viewport to 1080 + enabling scrolling and sharing as fullscreen, there still appears some blank space which is not the content at bottom (I would expect content to fill the browser window).

                I have filed a bug for the team to review.

                Thanks again for your help digging into this!
                Nina

              • shared prototypes not visible

                Please refer to the attached video.

                one of the stakeholders reported she couldn't see the new prototype at assets.adobe.com. I shared it with her. We found out, they appear when toggling to the listview and back, or when resizing the browser window.

                After a browser refresh, the same behaviour occurs. Only one prototype is visible, the others appear after resize or toggle list / grid view.

                Is this a known issue?

                • Gradient direction is different when saved into assets panel

                  When I'm trying to use a gradient from my assets it works, but not in the direction I saved it in.

                  1. Created gradient on shape
                  2. Added gradient to assets (the preview in the assets shows how I saved it, in the correct way)
                  3. Applying this gradient works, but the direction is from top to bottom instead of left to right.

                  Feel free to ask for more information! Added a image, right button is how it is applyed while it should apply like the left button.

                  • Edit color swatch only updating half of text line

                    When editing a color swatch XD will often only recolor half a text line. This happens throughout the document and is not fixed when reopened. If the text is affected by the bug, it will affect all duplicates of the text in the document.

                    I'm on Windows 10 and have the latest version of XD as of 2/13/2018.

                    • Cannot click through invisible parts of a layer on design specs

                      When browsing a Design Spec, devs cannot click on layers underneath objects with no fill.

                      The example linked below shows a group of three objects. The green one being a border only layer above all others. On Design specs I cannot see specs for any of the ones below that layer because all clicks (even when the layer has no fill) are caught by the top layer.

                      • 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.

                        • Font size mismatch in Windows

                          I use XD for Windows Desktop design. Our products use the Windows default font (Segoe UI 9pt) in most situations. However, when I specify this font in XD it appears too small, and I have to offset it to 12pt to get it to match what I see in Windows.

                          To reproduce:
                          1) Take a screen capture of a generic Windows UI element that uses the default Windows font (Segoe UI 9pt)
                          2) Paste the screenshot into XD
                          3) Redesign the text elements in XD using Segoe UI 9pt font - the rendered text is too small
                          4) Change the…

                            Hi there,

                            Thanks for getting in touch. Units in XD can get a little confusing if you look closely enough. There was a bit of a conversation earlier on the forums 1 about what the units actually are. And while we call them a “virtual pixel”, they do tend to map to an OS-specific concept. On Windows, this is the DIP (Device Independent Pixel) 2. There are 96 DIP in an inch, and 72 Pt, so the conversion is font size in DIP * 72 / 96 = font size in points. Using DIP allows us to keep all the measurement units in XD the same (x, y, width, height, font size, line spacing, etc). In the future, we’ll work towards adding more unit flexibility, but hopefully that will help you at least understand the current state of the world.

                            -Bear

                              • Repeat grid changes text of other items - if .txt file dropped previously

                                The issue is that repeat grid changes the text of the first text as well as the last item.
                                It happens when i come back to the screen to add more items to the repeat grid, when i drag the new items expand as expected but text changes the first line, or if drag more it, it will perhaps change the 2nd top.
                                The attached video may help to understand better the issue.

                                  Unfortunately, it looks like this will happen any time after you have dropped a text file onto the Repeat Grid to populate the items. This sets up the grid cells as a repeating sequence, similar to dropping in a stack of image files. Once there is a repeating sequence, updating the text in one cell updates all other copies of that cell’s data in the grid.

                                  I have filed a bug on this internally so we can figure out a way to give you more control over this in the future.

                                  In the meantime your best bet may be to make a new text file containing the labels you want to use, and drop that one in to replace the old sequence of labels.

                                • Scaling a group of objects with responsive resize turned off does not work.

                                  Scaling a group of elements (text boxes and image) with the shift button held and responsive resize turned off does not work. The text boxes become misaligned and scale at different percentages after the group is made small and large again.

                                  • Width and Height fields are not horizontally aligned with one another

                                    Windows 10. XD version 13.1.32.8 (Starter)

                                    The width and height fields and the line under them are not horizontally aligned with each other. Width is offset to the right by roughly 5 pixels.

                                    Small thing, but a design apps gotta have good design, right?

                                    • Symbol paste reverts text

                                      Copy and paste a group with a symbol that has the text that has been edited.
                                      Reverts to the symbol text.

                                      Bit annoying when copying groups between docs. Would prefer edited text was maintained.

                                      • Can't open Apple Design Resources for iOS on Windows

                                        I recently tried opening the Apple Design Resources made by Apple for iOS that can be found on this website https://developer.apple.com/design/resources/ and it starts downloading a .dmg file that isn't supported by Windows. I tried unzipping the file using 7Zip and WinRar but the only files I get are the ones that I attached below. I know this is not a problem of Adobe Xd itself but because of this problem there is no way for Windows users to use the official Apple Design Resources. I also tried downloading the Photoshop resources but I get an error when opening the…
