      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.

    • 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:

      • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Art boards get hidden if you have more than 17.

                  If you have more than 17 art boards you can not see number 18, or 19 at all even if you click on the board.
                  Number 20 goes on the next line so you can see that one but there is no way to see 18 and 19

                  • SVG - Xd 0.6.24.10 has a problem with some SVG gradients

                    As a user, I would like Xd to handle SVG gradients consistently and reliably.

                    Details
                    The only way I could get this particular vector art to work was to expand the gradient into 256 segments in Illustrator.

                    Expected Results
                    Gradients look the same in Xd as they do in other pieces of software.

                    Observed Results
                    Gradient defaults out to an organ color despite different grouping / flattening techniques.

                    • 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.

                      • 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

                        • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Right Alt + S shortcut Windows system default blocked

                                For my Polish keyboard setup Alt+S shortcut is default for special 'ś' character.
                                In Adobe XD this shortcut doesn't work.
                                I remember that some time ago similar problem occured in Photoshop, where Alt + S combination was used for some function as application default. Needed to change it manually to something else.
                                In XD there is no access to Preferences on Windows version, so I can't do that.

                                  Thanks for staying on this with us. I have been able to reproduce the behavior with the Polish keyboard and the s key, but only in the text editor. Text entry in the properties panel appears to work correctly (Right alt + s inserts a character).

                                  Let me know if you notice issues outside of the text editor,

                                  When I open the prototype in my mobile from the adobe XD app via Creative cloud, spacing is lost in between words and sometimes letters are missing.

                                  For example in the attached file:

                                  - cost is missing the T
                                  - Space missing in phoodster-find
                                  - Space missing in enable-location

                                  • Reorder layers in mask

                                    At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

                                      Press alt+space
                                      Then select zoom tool
                                      Try to zoom in any object or dartboard
                                      It produces zoom out only , but it showing zoom in icon when I'm zoom

                                        Thanks for reporting this! We’re able to reproduce the problem on our end and will investigate a fix. I’ve updated the title to cover the full breadth of the issue.

                                        This problem happens because Alt-Space opens the OS’s window menu (in the upper-left corner), and XD gets confused and thinks the Alt key is still pressed afterwards. If this happens, just tap the Alt key to “unstick” it. It will also fix itself automatically if you switch to another app and then come back to XD.

                                        If you want to zoom out via the Alt & Spacebar shortcut, you can avoid this issue by pressing the keys in the opposite order: hold down Spacebar first and then hold down Alt. That avoids popping open the OS menu.

                                          Thanks for the file!

                                          It looks like we have some issues when dealing with copy-paste from Illustrator when there are non-integer values in the text styles. Your file has a couple of these in font size and line spacing. We’ll work to fix the issue on our side, but as a short-term fix, you can change these values to integers and you should be able to get up and running.

                                        • Double Click on a Window Title bar to Zoom

                                          With the latest version 0.6.20.7 Beta
                                          On iMac 5K El Capitan 10.11.6
                                          Dock system preferences: "Double Click on a window Title bar" set to "zoom"

                                          This does not work in XD, double clicking on title bar does nothing. I believe this worked fine up until this build.

                                          Thanks
