      For those looking for a fix for this issue, the team is reviewing for fix in an upcoming build.

      There is a workaround shared by Randy Edmunds. See below.


      We are aware of this issue. Until it gets resolved, you can select the object inside the repeat grid and move it down a few pixels to fix it.

      Hope this helps,
      Randy

        • 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?

            Hiya Thomas:

            Are you working with the font in this post, or another one? The team is actively looking at improvements with fonts across platforms. Let me know which fonts you’re seeing the problem so I can be sure we add them to the list for review.

            Thanks!

            • XD shouldn't stop Android File Transfer from working

              1. Version 0.6.2.7
              2. Download Android file transfer (https://www.android.com/filetransfer/)
              Open androidfiletransfer.dmg.
              Drag Android File Transfer to Applications.
              Use the USB cable that came with your Android device and connect it to your Mac.
              3. Expect Adobe XD to not interfere with process at all, but it only worked if I uninstalled XD from BOTH my phone AND my computer.

              • SVG Export compatible with Android Studio

                Android support vectors which is very nice as you only have to manage one version of the asset, and some other cool things. I am aware that most people use PNG for now, but this is changing and new projects are leaning toward vectors.

                Now the issue is that Android Studio is a bit dumb when reading SVG files, and the only tool that export compatible files is Sketch (and I am trying to switch to Adobe XD completely, especially because there is a Windows version incoming).

                So I have done many tests to figure out what's "wrong" with XD:

                  This bug is in the teams queue for review. In the meantime, it looks like you can save the SVG files in Illustrator to get into a recognized format. You can also save those files to Creative Cloud libraries, share across multiple systems and import directly from & into XD.

                  Thanks!

                • 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…

                      Hiya Tim: I wish I had better news. The Cloud team is working hard in getting this fixed. There’s an update coming soon where there’s some marked improvements. I’ll follow up once deployment is confirmed.

                      Sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

                      Cheers!

                      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。

                      3. 変換の確定と同時にコメントが投稿されてしまう。

                      • Push/Slide animation not working on select art boards

                        Have a prototype with a mixture of different animations.
                        Some use simple dissolves, others use the slide animation.

                        Working mostly fine.

                        However, on three of the art boards, no matter what I do- the slide OR push animation does not work. It simply does a dissolve.

                        I have removed and readded all links/transitions from these artboards but still does not work.

                          Hi Leo and team,

                          Thanks for the report, and Leo’s suggestion (ensuring width + viewport height is the same) is the best way workaround the current limitation.

                          We’ll keep an eye on this to see if other users hit this issue.

                          Cheers,

                        • 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.

                            M.

                            Elements missing when loading a long prototype in the browser. Loads very slowly and many elements are completely white when finally renders? Seems to be worse in Chrome (latest version)
                            I'm on a PC.

                                  Hello,
                                  Thank you for bringing this to our attention that I apologize for the inconvenience. I have a filed a corresponding bug so we can investigate this issue in more detail. This may be related to the size of your artboard, as I noticed reducing the size resulted in the correct output – but not in every case. We will work to identify the root cause and implement a fix as soon as possible.

                                • 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.

                                    • Incorrect Symbol Position When Pulling in New Symbol

                                      When dragging in a symbol from the symbol browser, the preview position of the symbol attached to the mouse cursor does not match the action position where it is dropped upon mouse release (macOS and Windows).

                                        • 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.
                                          v 0.5.6.7

                                            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.
