  1. [Windows] Drag/drop from Explorer to XD stops working (47735)

    Once in a while, drag and drop simply stops working. Recovery is not always successful. This may be related to GPU NVIDIA drivers. While we are investigating this issue, as a workaround you may try restarting your machine or updating those drivers.

    Windows uniquement : la fonctionnalité de glisser/déposer de l’Explorateur vers XD cesse parfois de fonctionner sous Windows
    De temps à autre, la fonctionnalité de glisser-déposer cesse de fonctionner. Une restauration n’est pas toujours possible. Cela peut être dû aux pilotes des processeurs graphiques NVIDIA. Pendant que nous nous penchons sur ce problème, vous pouvez essayer de le contourner en…

    • Windows scrollbar covering in the preview screen

      Please take a look at the attached screenshot. As you can see, on Windows, the vertical scrollbar is inside the preview window, covering part of the content which is not ok and looks really bad and unprofessional, especially when presenting a demo to a client.

      Hope you can fix this!

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 'align to pixel grid' changes SVG appearance

            SVGs seem to change shape when I select ”Align to pixel grid”
            1) Drag and drop an SVG file exported from Photoshop.
            2) Make it half the size in XD
            3) Right click the SVG and ”Align to pixel grid”
            4) SVG looks strange. See screenshot.

            • Problem with box containers (exactly same problem in Sketch)

              Bounding box for text layers: it randomly adds extra space above or below, and doesn't crop the bounding box straight to the top and bottom of the text.

              It is really difficult to measure properly, work in pixel perfect and give the specs for the devs.

              Please fix it! :-)

                Unfortunately, this problem comes from the operating system and is not something we can fix reliably. However, as I mentioned in my last comment, it’s very likely that what your developers see in XD is exactly how they will have to program them when they get to implementation.

                We’re not planning to fix this bug, so I’m closing it out.

                  • Transitions between overlays "blink" the screen

                    As I transition from one overlay to another, even setting transition to none, the screen blinks making it harder to folow the flow as is should (a wizard or onboarding for an example wich could be a modal with several steps)

                    The following prototype shows this issue https://xd.adobe.com/view/f5c76125-8e6f-49e5-4719-90618721ed12-83f6/

                    • Opening prototype preview un-maximizes main window

                      Found in Adobe XD 7.0.12.9 in Windows 10 Pro 64-bit:

                      - Open XD file
                      - Maximize Adobe XD's main window (the editor window)
                      - Click on the play button to open the preview window
                      - Preview window opens, but the main editor window is un-maximized at the same time.

                      • Color picker issue when you have guidelines

                        Hi there!

                        I found a interesting bug. When I am trying to pick a color and I have guidelines active, somehow it mix with the color that I have it in my artwork.

                        Please, take a look at the picture that I attached.

                        Thank you

                        • Exported SVG does not import into Illustrator

                          Whenever I open the SVG exported from Xd in illustrator it gives unexpected results, and specifically in illustrator the gradients get rasterised and black patches appear in place of the gradient . Ideally, a vector file like SVG exported from Xd should open the same way as it opens in Xd but when I open the file the gradient information is lost.

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

                                • Save Dialogue Should Pop up When Closing Preview While Recording

                                  1) Request: When a Preview record is in progress, have a save dialogue pop up when the user hits the "x" to exit the preview window.

                                  2) Why it matters: I was doing a user test using the Preview and using the record feature (which is awesome) and when the test was over I hit the "x" to close the Preview popup window.

                                  I was expecting a save dialogue box to come up, let me save it, then close the live Preview window. I was surprised and irritated when it just closed the window without saving the UX test I…

                                  • Tone markers in Thai language not displaying correctly

                                    Using Tahoma font family in Adobe XD, Windows 10

                                    Thai words including letters with overflowed height 'ป ฝ ฟ ฬ' could not display tone marks ่ (ไม้เอก) correctly when applying text.

                                    the text is readable on edit but tone marks does not appear to be shifting left upon committing the text object

                                    ฝ่าย appear as ฝาย
                                    ป่าย appear as ปาย
                                    and so on...

                                    see attach file for more details on the bugs

                                    • Empty Symbol

                                      Adobe XD 13.1.32.8 / Macbook Pro 2017 15" / High Sierra 10.13.6

                                      I was able to recreate part of the an earlier bug I reported
                                      https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/35326552--empty-symbols-and-differences-between-instances

                                      what I did was
                                      - create a symbol out of a single shape
                                      - go inside symbol and select the rectangle
                                      - click 'Enter' so i can edit the vector points of the rectangle
                                      - press 'Delete' on the vector points one by one until all is deleted
                                      - you will then have an empty symbol that you can't select, modify or move around.

                                      • Can't edit text in text mask

                                        Like the title says - placing a text on top of an image and choosing [ ⌥⌘I ] leaves an un-editable text, even if the user goes tries to use layers [ ⌘Y ] to select the text.

                                        • SVG Export Underline is Wrong

                                          I have a word that has two underline colors. When exporting to SVG it only uses the first color for the underline

                                          Exporting it as a PNG shows the underline color as expected, but with SVG it's just the first color. Screenshot shows what it looks like and the output of the SVG and PNG export
