  1. 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?

        Greetings:

        Usually that error comes up when there’s a problem with the network. Have you had a chance to try publishing via a different network connection?

        To help dig into things can you please share the following:
        - XD version
        - OS version
        - Creative Cloud userID & country you’re publishing from
        - Creative Cloud log files https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html

        Thanks!

          Hi David,
          Sorry to hear you are running into trouble when trying to publish a prototype. An Error 22 indicates that XD was unable to generate bitmaps for the artboards in your design file.

          Does your design file contain any particularly large artboards? If so, this is likely the source of the error. By reducing the size of your artboard, the publish operation should succeed.

          If you can send your XD design file to AdobeXDSharingSupport@adobe.com – we can take a look and investigate further.

          Alternatively, can you reply here with the dimensions of your largest artboard?

          Are you able to publish from other XD design files with smaller artboards, or do you see this issue with all files?

        • Type tool doesn't work well

          The system fails to recognize new font's even after relaunch. Also, when typing the text is not visible and get's visibility back only after finishing with the element.

          1. Adobe XD 9.1.12.3
          2. Just type.
          3. Text should be visible while typing.
          4. Text is not Visible while typing.

          • Font Awesome 5 intergration

            I have just installed Font Awesome 5 (FA5) fonts for desktop. It doesn't show icons in XD (latest update to date), only text.
            I type "tags", choose FA5 from font menu and it remains in text format - "tags", doesn't transform in tags icon, as it's supposed to do.

            FA5 works in Illustrator and Photoshop.
            I am also using Material Icons (MI), Google's ligature based icon font, and it works in XD. Font Awesome 4 (FA4) also works in XD (not ligature).

            Any solution on this?
            The reason I would love to switch to another ligature based icon font is…

            • Prototyping and Copy & Paste

              The current version does not allow copy-Paste to preserve interaction wires/links
              Ability to copy wires along with assets. For example, if I have a home button that will always link to the same page, it would be helpful if I didn't have to wire the button each time. This would also be helpful when duplicating artboards so the links stay intact. For example, if I need to show a dropdown menu, I would do this by duplicating the artboard and adding a wire to the dropdown menu. In this case, I would want all the existing wires to stay the…

              • Vector from CC Libraries loads blurry

                With the new update I've tried utilizing the new ability to use vectors in CC Libraries. However, when I drop them into my XD document, they never load fully and just show blurry with a refresh button over top.

                I've tried closing all of my adobe tools including the CC software manager as well as tried refreshing the images several times in XD.

                Currently on a Mac Mini.

                    Sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulty using the share online feature in XD. The error you are seeing indicates that there is a problem with the login state on your local machine.

                    To resolve this issue, please first try the following:

                    1. Close all Adobe applications
                    2. Sign out of the Creative Cloud desktop application
                    3. Restart the machine

                    4. Login to the Creative Cloud desktop application

                    5. Launch Adobe XD and attempt to use the share online functionality


                    If the error persists after the actions above, the following steps should fix it:

                    1. Close XD and all other Adobe applications
                    2. Sign out and then quit the Creative Cloud desktop application
                    3. Open the Activity Monitor (on macOS) or Task Manager (on Win10)
                    4. Force quit/terminate the following processes:
                    1. Adobe Desktop Service
                    2. Core Sync
                    3. Creative Cloud
                    5. Navigate to the OOBE folder:
                    1. Mac: Users/[user…

                  • Overlay shows scroll bar despite scroll = none

                    Overlays show a scrollbar even when scroll is set to none on the target artboard. I can't get 100% replicability, but majority of the time.

                    1. Create a small artboard (e.g. to be a dialog) with all contents within the artboard area.
                    2. Set scroll = none on this artboard
                    3. In prototype mode, set the artboard as the target overlay of another
                    4. Enter desktop preview
                    5. When overlay is shown, vertical scroll bar appears

                        • Text formatting within same Text Field broken

                          1. Version: latest (as of (07/02/18)
                          2. Steps to reproduce: Create Textbox, have different formatting within it (e.g. heading in bold and underlined). When going to the non-heading line that is not bold or underlined and trying to write before the existing text but in the same line, it will adopt the formatting of the heading instead of the text that comes after. Word and Google Docs solve it pretty nicely. Bug has been around since I started using XD (more than a year). Essentially it's a bug in the formatting for different lines (what would be a <br> in…

                              @Christoph, I think the issue Rob is seeing is different from what you’re describing. It would help to have link to your prototype with details steps of what you’re doing and where it’s not working.

                              @Rob – I think you may be hitting a limitation with how things are setup based on what you’re trying to do. Wonder if adding dissolve transition improves the user experience?

                              In Sketch I had the "Open Sans Bold" "Open Sans Extrabold" etc. When I open the document in XD it can not find the fonts (but they are activated in FontExplorer X Pro via Typekit). The error message says: Missing fonts:

                              OpenSans-Bold-Regular
                              OpenSans-Extrabold-Regular

                              It adds the word "regular" after every font!

                                I can't open any XD files, the only solution I have to open files is using the "Recent Files" that are listed when I first open the app. It works on files I have created but doesn't work on files others have created.
                                Adobe XD version 4.0.12.6

                                • Copy/Paste shortcuts and menu options no longer work

                                  I just downloaded the November 2017 update. I opened a new document. When I try to use copy/paste shortcuts on any object, nothing happens. When I right click and copy/paste using the menu, nothing happens. The only way I can copy an object is by right clicking the object in the layers palette and duplicating it. The keyboard shortcut for group works fine (CTRL+G), as well as select all (CTRL+A).
                                  I opened a project that I started before downloading the update. The copy and paste functions work just fine. They also work if I am in an Illustrator project. I…

                                    Did you just update your Windows 10 to Fall Creators Update? We’ve heard from our users that many graphics drivers have been invalidated with this update, so you’ll need to go to the manufacturer’s website to download and install the latest. Let us know if this resolves the issue for you!

                                  • Symbol repeat grid doesn't propagate .txt files or images to items

                                    Adobe XD version: 0.6.34.3 Beta

                                    Steps:
                                    1. Create a symbol comprised by text and images
                                    2. Use symbol to create a repeat grid
                                    3. Drag and drop .txt file or images to symbol

                                    Expected result:
                                    Images propagating to repeat grid items
                                    Text propagating to repeat grid items

                                    • artboard order

                                      i have a document with 20+ arboards. When i share this prototype the first artboard that my client sees is not the artboard they need to see "homepage" The home artboard is the first artboard i created in this file so its should be de default artboard i gues??

                                      A couple days a go when the file was maybe 8 artboard the prototype displayed the right "homepage" artboard at the start of the prototype.

                                      I dont know why en how this changed

                                      • Make XD run stable! fix bugs instead of releasing features.

                                        I like that Adobe has released a multi platform prototyping tool with XD. Anyways it sometimes can be very very annoying working with adobe xd, since it has so many bugs. Instead of releasing new features I belive Adobe should be more focused on getting XD stable and bug free!

                                          The size of canvas(body) depends on high of browser. The body should be full screen sized but its have only half of real size.
