    • 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.

        • [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…

            • 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

              • 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.

                • 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?

                  • [Windows] Pinch gestures and two-finger pan may not work on trackpads (J35123)

                    If you’ve worked on the Mac version of the application, you may be using the pinch gestures and two-finger pan on your laptop’s trackpad. We’ve discovered, quite to our dismay, that some Windows machines do not respond to these gestures reliably, as some work only when extended displays are plugged in, and others work only when they’re not. We’re working to resolve the problem, but you may want to consider using the keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out (Ctrl+-and Ctrl+=) and holding down the space key to convert the pointer to the hand icon.

                      Thanks Cameron, John for sharing your feedback.
                      The issue captured in the original report was addressed in XD 2.

                      It’s unclear whether the problems you’re experiencing are new or regressions. I’ve created new bug report for the team to investigate.

                      Cheers!

                    • 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:

                      • 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

                        • [Windows] Layers Panel: Layers suddenly use wrong icons

                          Experience Design CC (Beta) v. 0.6.32.
                          Running on a Surface Book hooked up to monitors using the Surface Dock (not sure if that's relevant).

                          Layers panel shows different icons than what the layer type is (rectangle, ellipse, group, symbol, text, etc). This is a random thing that happens after having an XD document open for some time.

                          The layer icons are correct when you first open the document, but change at some point. I haven't been able to figure out what triggers it. Closing XD and reopening it seems to fix the issue.

                          • 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.

                            • 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…

                              • Setting font size sets opacity instead

                                Using Windows v10.0.14393 and XD v3.1.1.2.2

                                --------------------

                                Steps to reproduce:

                                1) Select text in my design with the type tool
                                2) Select font size value in the TEXT pane and type in a new value (e.g. 12)
                                3) Hit enter

                                Expected Result:

                                1) New font size value applied to text in design

                                Actual Result:

                                1) The operation sets the Opacity of the text object to that value

                                I usually need to repeat steps above until font size is properly set. This happens intermittently and is difficult to predict. Not sure what I'm doing to make this happen

                                Also, would like…

                                • 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

                                    When an large artboard (height around 16000px or larger) is shared, some content near the bottom of the artboard is missing.

                                      Duplicated art boards are using an unrecognized character (Dash). Impossible to zip files with exported screenshots who are using this characters.

                                      • Rectangle still converted to Path sometimes if you double-click to edit as path but make no changes

                                        Version: 0.6.34.3
                                        OS: Mac and Windows

                                        Observation:
                                        After a rectangle has been created (in my case with 2dp rounded corners) it is automatically converted to a path some time later without telling it explicitly to do so. As a consequence it looses its rounded corner property and resizing results in changes of the corner radius.

                                        Expected Behavior:
                                        Rectangles remain rectangles until the user explicitly wants to convert it to a path.

                                          We’ve filed a bug on this and will work to fix it.

                                          I’d also like to understand though, why you’re double-clicking rectangles often even though you don’t want to edit them as paths. If the rectangle is not in a group, you shouldn’t need to double-click at all. Is it just that you’re not sure whether the rectangle is in a group or not, so you double-click it just in case? If so, one thing you could do instead is Cmd-click (or Ctrl-click on Windows) instead of double-clicking — that will still drill into the group if the rectangle is inside one, but if it’s not inside one (or you’re already drilled into the group) it won’t enter path-editing mode.

                                        • 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
