  1. Repeat Grid Incorrectly Styles Some Text Characters from Line to Line

    I have a column with groups of three lines. The first line in the group is bolded, the other two are not. After placing a text file (attached), sometimes the bolding doesn't go to the end of the first line and sometimes it continues to a couple characters on the second line.

      Hi there,

      Thanks for letting us know about this. Unfortunately, ranged styles are currently hardwired to specific positions in the string. In your case, the ranged style is “the first 13 characters should be bold”, and it doesn’t matter whether one of those characters is a line separator or not. The simplest workaround, for now, would be to make each item that you want to have a separate style be a separate text item in your prototype. This would, unfortunately, also require you to have multiple data files for your drag and drop.

      I know this seems a bit unintuitive, so we will also take a look and see if we can make the experience better in the future.

    • Preview on Device - Text gets cut off

      There is a bug when displaying area text on mobile devices. Seems like the baseline shifts down on the mobile preview, causing the text to not fit in its area. This results in the text displaying lower than it should, and cut short. Point text seems to work fine.

      • [windows] same document open multiple times

        I have yet to figure out how I'm able to open the same document multiple times, but I think it has something do to when I restart windows and open up Adobe XD again.

        I have filed this one before:
        https://forums.adobe.com/message/9646531#9646531

        What is dangerous with this bug, is when you close one of your documents it automatically saves and overwrites the other one.

          • Proper Object Alignment

            I often find that when trying to align objects, shapes or even text, no matter what I try, the object won't align to the same edge as something else, despite being the EXACT same width. This is really really annoying, as it's not an issue at all in InDesign or Illustrator. It's the only thing I don't like about XD.

            When will this issue be fixed?

            • PDF export breaks text strings to single letters

              When I export artboard to PDF (to convert it to layered PSD for developer), I have all the texts longer than 3-4 symbols broken to single letters (multiple single text objects and multiple single layers if exported from Illustrator to Photoshop). They appear at their places, but you can not select string or paragraph, only single letter.
              Words, that 2-3 letters long, like YES or NO on buttons, are not being devided to letters.

                Thank you very much for filing this issue. I created a bug report and we will post updates when we were able to improve the PDF export experience.

              • [Mac] Exported artboards are getting renamed with numbers

                Hey guys!
                What happened to the exporting feature? After this last updated my artboards are getting renamed with numbers when I export them, why did you add a limit there?
                This is a huge step back, every designer uses the artboard names to organize the wireframes folders, we need to export the files as we name them on the software.
                That's not a good user experience =/

                  Hi guys,

                  First i would like to thank you all for getting back to use with this useful feedback, really appreciate this.
                  We are working to fix this issue in the next version of XD. I do have some questions on this topic though:

                  • as you know, there is a limitation on the path length on Win10 (260 chars) and another one on OSX (1000). If you name your artboards to a text containing 128 chars and then you export it in a path that has already 160 chars, the export will fail on Win10.
                  • in such case, would you prefer to have a limitation in place for the number of chars that can be used for naming to minimize the risk of export fail? If so, what would be that number?
                  • OR would you be ok to have no limitation to the name and in case export fails for…

                    We’re currently investigating the occurrences of error 44. If you encounter this error we would really appreciate it if you could post a comment with your OS (Mac or Windows) the version of XD you are using, and the type of internet connection that you have.

                    This error may occur if you have a slow network/internet connection, or if you get disconnected while sharing.

                    Some users have reported that restarting XD, or logging out of the Creative Cloud app, and then logging back in will fix the issue.

                  • Repeat grid cuts off shadow of element

                    When making a new repeat grid with element that has shadow (like a box with content in it and shadow), repeat grid masks out shadow of that element. See image attached for example.

                    • Stroke Alignment - inside/outside stroke imports from AI as separate fill

                      XD currently appears to only understand "center" aligned stroked objects (pasted from AI). It does not appear to recognize "inside" nor "outside" stroke alignments, as they are treated more or less as fills

                        We’re tracking this issue! We’ll update this bug with its status as we work through it. There’s also a comment by Bear Travis asking a clarification question.

                      • 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.

                                We have discovered that this situation can occur when the home artboard is deleted from the design file, and no replacement is selected. This can be fixed by switching to Prototype mode, selecting an artboard and cicking the grey tab at the top left of an artboard.

                                We realize this is a deficiency in the prototyping workflow. Two options we’re considering for fixing are:

                                1. Showing an error when trying to share if there are interactions but no home artboard
                                2. If/when the home artboard is deleted, automatically setting the first top-left artboard with interactions as the home artboard.

                                Let us know if you have a preference between these two options.

                                  • 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,
                                      Daniel

                                    • [Windows]Was typing text into XD changed font size and saving gives bad response

                                      Repro steps:

                                      - Created a text box by copying another text box.
                                      - Started typing the new text in the box realized I needed to resize it.
                                      - Clicked in the font size frame[box?]
                                      - (after trying my old habit of scrolling, which didn't work in the box)
                                      - I tried to edit the font size with the keyboard. Set it to 8.
                                      - Clicked back into my text box, realized the font didn't change size.
                                      - Then had to click back in the font size box and i realized there were little arrows on the cursor i could drag…

                                      • Error 49 when saving some file

                                        ver. 0.6.23.37 and 0.6.24.10 (not on ver. 0.6.20.7)

                                        Steps:

                                        1. create a file (choose "iPhone 6/7")
                                        2. choose file > save as ...
                                        3. input for the name "デザインガイド"(it means design guidelines in Japanese) , and save to desktop(/Users/username/Desktop/)

                                        Expected result:
                                        success to save the file

                                        Actual result:

                                        I got error code 49 and could not save it. I tried to save to other folders. I could not save it, either.

                                        my other try:
                                        In case of the name "デザイン", it is success to save a file.
                                        In case of the name "ガイド", it is success to save a file.

                                          Hi there,

                                          We’re sorry you’re having trouble with XD, but appreciate you taking the time to let us know what isn’t working. I believe that I have isolated a bug and have passed it along to the team. While we are looking into this, it would also be helpful if you could send us what the username is for the machine (or, if you’d prefer, just whether or not it contains non-ascii characters).

                                          Thanks for your help in tracking this down, we will keep you posted as this works its way through our process.

                                          -Bear
