  1. [Windows] Adobe Illustrator - Opening/Importing .svg RepeatGrip - disappearing layers/content

    Xd Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.3.114
    Adobe Illustrator Version : 21.1.0 (64-bit)

    1. Create any type of RepeatGrid
    2. Export .svg (embed image)
    3. Open .svg in Adobe Illustrator

    Result
    If a RepeatGrid is used (in this case text)the resultant .svg when opened in Adobe Illustrator does not contain the RepeatGrid/s. Furthermore, all the layers including and above that first RepeatGrid in the stack are totally ignored (not there).

    Expected Result
    The RepeatGrid and all layers above that to be included (and visible) in the file opened in Adobe Illustrator.

    Potentially where the problem is...
    I look at the .svg…

      • Make background blur more aggressive

        The background blur effect is way too subtle. I barely could tell it was blurring into I maxed our the slider. Can you make it as strong as the Object blur effect?

        Check out Sketch's background blur effect. This is much better and useable. Thanks!

          Moving it over to a bug and marking it as not a bug, as it looks like we have more than enough control over the blur.

          To answer your question, adding more fine grained control also allows you to tint the background blur at the same time, giving you more control over whether you’re darkening or lightening the background.

          These tweets might explain it better: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&q=%40elainecchao%20%23adobexd%20%23protip%20blur&src=typd

          Hope that helps!

          • All artboards not publishing

            Version 0.8.22.17 Beta, CS 2.4.2.16

            I have a project where the number of artboards have been increasing - now numbering 16.

            I would publish the prototype to the web for external review, but once the number of artboards exceeded about 12, I noticed that they didn't all appear in the published proto.

            I have tried publishing to a new link, no success.

            I have tried creating a new file and copying the artboards into it, no success.

            If I export the project to images or PDF, all artboards are present.

            Attached screens show number of artboards, and the page count…

            • Gotham HTF font not reproducing/previewing correctly when exporting to PDF

              Currently running 0.8.22.17 Beta on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.
              When exporting XD pages to PDF, and when opening the subsequent PDF when exported, the font does not preview correctly, often showing missing characters and/or flipping text upside down. This occurs on all files I create and export to PDF. None of the text blocks have additional effects added (no strokes, shadows, etc.) when used in XD.

                    This is not a bug. We recently changed our UI kits to go to the location where the UI kits are hosted. If you look at that website, there’s a UI kit/sticker sheet for Adobe XD on it, which you can then unzip and use just like you did with our internal UI kits. You should be able to get your updated UI kits much faster after an OS update now.

                    Hope that helps!

                  • Existing prototype link goes away with shared file

                    1. version 0.6.34.3 beta (Mac)

                    2. I am sharing my XD files with multiple designers using Adobe CC. If I open one of their files that has an existing prototype and link, the Share prototype popup only has the option to Create Link. If I do this of course, it will break their existing link and all of our comments would be gone.

                    Is this a known bug?

                    3. If a prototype exists for that file, the pop up should already have that when opened on another computer, account, etc.

                    4. A file with an existing prototype link only shows…

                      Hi,

                      that the link is overwritten when another user shares and saves the file is on purpose as it would give everyone the right to update whenever they have the file and you couldn’t revoke that right. Due to this we decided to remove the link.

                      Right now we do not have a feature that allows working as a team on one single file including sharing. Maybe you want to log an enhancement request? I can see how this would be a useful feature for a lot of teams.

                      A workaround for this would be to share an account. Depending on your situation that might or might not be a workaround. Otherwise to keep the link only one of you should share the prototype, you could still make changes and save.

                      HTH, Corrinna

                      • text exported to svg loses opacity

                        Hi, I am in the latest version of XD and illustrator. If I start a blank artboard in XD, set the opacity to 50%, then export to svg. When I import into illustrator, opacity is 100%.

                        As a work around, I tried giving the text fill a 50% alpha in it's rgba value. When importing the SVG into illustrator the text comes in black with 100% opacity.

                        xd 0.6.34.3
                        illustrator 21.1.0

                        Kind regards,
                        Mike

                        • Deleting anchor points closes shape

                          Not sure if it's really a bug or expected behaviour, but in Photoshop this behavior would be wrong.

                          When i delete an anchor point in a circle for instance, to create a half circle path, the shape close, instead of remaining an open line.

                          This means I'm forced to manually create a half circle path if i want to achieve that. In my case this is importan for data visualizations.

                          • Clickthrough Goes in Wrong Order

                            My clickthrough is not always following the correct order and the artboard numbers get funky and don't accurately reflect which artboard one is viewing. Here is a link. The order varies depending on whether you click in the screen or click the Next arrow button at the bottom. https://xd.adobe.com/view/6ec39dbe-6b8a-41fb-910d-c5791c181cb5/. I can upload a file, but only if it's not viewed by everyone on the board.

                              Hi Ron,

                              Sorry for the confusion. I suspect this is related to how you wired your prototype. The arrow buttons at the bottom of the screen transition through your artboards in reading order (i.e. top left to right). The wires you attach from one element or artboard to another artboard can go in any order you specify.

                              For example, if you have the following artboards in your design file:

                              A, B, J, K, M, N, T

                              and you connect a wire from A to J, and J to T…

                              If you use the arrows to transition between artboards you will see them appear in reading order, i.e. A → B → J → K, etc. If you click on A, it will go J – since that is where you connected the wire.

                              Also note that only the artboards connected to the flow from the home artboard are uploaded as…

                            • Symbol Edit

                              When editing the text in a symbol, it no longer makes the change across all the instances of the symbol in the document but only to that one instance. Now I have to go into that symbol on every artboard and edit the text for each instance. It used to change all instances of that symbol.

                                We now have symbol overrides, which allows you to have different text and images in your symbols. You can right click on the object and select “Update All Symbols” to propagate to all of your objects.

                                  Hi,

                                  I think you can. I believe there is a way to tell AI to use a bigger decimal number when exporting assets into SVG via clipboard.

                                  Here is how i do it on my mac (win should be similar):

                                  • launch AI
                                  • open the existing file
                                  • File → Save As → choose SVG
                                  • in the “SVG Options” dialog make sure that “Decimal places” value is at least 3 for better fidelity
                                  • copy your art again and paste it in XD

                                  Hope it helps,
                                  M.

                                  Hi! I am working since several weeks on a prototype for an app, which now has about 130 artboards/screens. After making changes or adding artboards, i was always able to update the online share link and everything worked fine.

                                  Since several days, after updating online link, copying link and adding in browser, it shows only the first 5 screens.

                                  I have tested a lot, to find the problem and created 2 test prototypes with exact the same artboards (192). The artboards of Test1 link always to the artboard next to the previous. But in Test2 i linked some of the…

                                    Hello,

                                    Sorry to hear there is some confusion. I’m not 100% clear exactly what you are describing when you say “But in Test2 i linked some of the artboards cross over to other artboards”.

                                    However, I believe your issue is related to the manner in which you have connected artboards. XD decides which artboards to upload as follows:

                                    1/ If none of the artboards are connected with wires, ALL artboards will be uploaded. Users can transition between artboards using the arrow buttons on the screen or on a keyboard.

                                    2/ If one more more artboards are connected, XD uploads only those artboards that are connected to the home artboard.

                                    For example, if you have a design file with artboards named:
                                    One
                                    Two
                                    Three
                                    Four
                                    Five

                                    And artboard One is connected to artboards Three and Five – the prototype you share will contain artboard One, Three and Five. Since artboards Two…

                                    XD version 0.6.34.3 Beta. Created an 11 page document that I need to share with my team. Updated the share link after I added new pages. Team members told me pages had disappeared after they refreshed their browser to see updated file. Now only 2 pages show on share link. Updating link and creating new link makes no difference.

                                      Version 0.6.32.12 Beta [Win]

                                      1. Create a rectangle, for example, 8px square with 1px border of any color.
                                      2. Copy it twice. Now you have three identical squares. Apply boolean "Add" on two of them.
                                      3. Ungroup result of boolean operation.

                                      Expected to see three identical 8px squares after ungrouping, but got one 8px and two 7px squares.

                                      If you increase smaller rectangles size to 8px, their borders differs from the origin one's borders.

                                        This has to do with the location of the stroke. By default, our ellipses and our rectangles are inner-stroke, but all paths (including lines) are center-stroke. When you convert to a Boolean group, what you’re doing is converting your rectangles (inner-stroked) to paths (center-stroked). We maintain the visual size of your object in this case and don’t just change the object’s size because you converted to a path.

                                        • Cannot share prototype when there's no interaction after creating the first interaction.

                                          So when I first create a document and only have one artboard, I can share my prototype. When I have more with no interactions, people I share with can scroll through with the arrow keys.

                                          But after I created a new interaction for the previous artboards and want to share just one of the screens I'm currently working on but it has no interactions. It tells me I have to link it first or else it won't create the prototype link for me.

                                          I find that stupid and found myself forced to link with another artboard or else I can't…

                                            Hi Stevo,

                                            I apologize for the confusion. XD is working as designed, but clearly the workflow isn’t as intuitive as we expected. Here are the basic rules for which artboards are uploaded when you share your design:

                                            1 – If your prototype does not contain any interactions, all artboards are uploads and viewers can navigate between artboards using the arrow buttons in the xd web app (or the keyboard)

                                            2 – When you add interactions to your prototype, the first artboard you connect will be designated as the home artboard. If you then share your design, only the artboards connected to the home artboard will be shared as part of the prototype.

                                            3 – Once you have added interactions to your design file, your home artboard has to have a least one outgoing link in order for XD to allow you to upload a prototype.

                                            I believe the issue you…
