  1. XD pastes last copied thing from XD and not other applications

    Adobe XD 11 (August 2018)
    Macbook Pro 15" 2017 - Mac OS High Sierra

    Sometimes when I copy from illustrator and paste to XD, it will paste the last thing i copied from XD itself. However if i go back to illustrator and past, it will paste what it copied from illustrator.

    I know this is an Adobe XD issue because I encounter the same issues sometimes trying to copy images from web.

    Closing XD and opening it again, does solve the issue.
    but this bug has been here since I believe June release

    • Long Press for menu not working

      I just upgraded XD V13 on iOS and the long press for menus no longer works. Long press brings up a dialogue "No Microphone Access....." How can I access the menu now?

      • Italic moving in text outside the artboard

        1) latest version
        2) If I select a word that is obviously in the text box but outside the artboard to switch regular/italic, the selection is moving and the selected word is half regular half italic, but the next word too.
        3) cmd Z don't work for regular/italic

        • line spacing is (slightly) greater than defined

          Adobe XD 13.0.12.14
          macOS Mojave 10.14.1

          Video description: https://youtu.be/4Tka6cI7i00
          STEPS:
          - Create a text field, define a line spacing
          - define a fixed height for an area text.
          - Line spacing in text field adds up 0.25pt to 2pt extra (whenever it is bellow the default line height for a certain text size)
          - This produces some text fields clipping off the last line of content.

            Greeting Yoni:

            This is working as designed today. Each font has it’s own spacing so when set it adjusts to accommodate that. It looks like ~1:13 you switch to area text which adjusts to show the text within the viewable area based on the size set. So that’s also working as expected.

            There’s a few feature requests that look to capture some of what you’re looking for, https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/

            https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/18672550-snap-text-box-height-to-line-spacing-value

            I encourage you to vote and add your comments if the above line up with what you’re trying to do. Or open a new one for anything you’re not seeing that you’d like to have in XD in future versions.

            Thanks!

          • PSD Inner Shadow

            Hello,

            Hello,

            I haved a simple shape with an inner shadow in Photoshop as a PSD file. This inner shadow disappears when opening it in XD.

            You may replicate that with that simple PSD file.

              Greetings:

              Thanks for sharing your feedback! Unfortunately this is working as expected currently. The best way to manage this now is to save as png in PS and import. Though I’m guessing you might want all the layers available to edit in XD.

              I did a bit of looking over in the XD feature request forum and nothing popped up as specifically addressing this. But I encourage you to take a look and upvote posts that support your requirement. As well as open new report detailing what you’re trying to do so the team can better understand what you’re looking for.

              Thanks!

              Text disappears when selected to edit
              When I select the text to change it doesn't allow me to do it or the text becomes white.

              • Fonts available in Photoshop but not in Adobe XD

                I've installed several fonts on my Windows 10 system ( in C>Windows>Fonts), and they are available for me to use in Photoshop , but Adobe XD shows them (as well as other fonts) as missing fonts. Can you please tell me how to fix this, so I can create my prototype? The fonts I'm trying to use in XD are the Apple fonts (SF Pro Display and SF Pro Text).

                • Design Spec not downloading assets correctly

                  1. version 12.0.12.10

                  2. When trying to download the asset as an svg directly from the design spec link, the asset is missing some detail.

                  3. expected result - rounded square with dots inside

                  4. actual result - blank rounded square

                  • Locked Ratio doesn't work anymore with manual number input (latest updates)

                    When trying to proportionately resize a locked ration from an object, the resize only follows one axis (x or y).

                    How to reproduce :

                    1. Draw a square
                    2. Lock it's ration
                    3. Try and scale it up or down by modifying one of the values

                    Observed :
                    The object is distorted and not proportional at all

                    Expect:
                    That the ratio would calculate itself like it used to be before

                    • copy&paste from XD to other apps

                      It's impossible to copy smth from XD and paste it to Outlook letter for example (or another app) as picture. Then I do it I see just black rectange. Look at the attachment.

                        Oh I see. You may be working with files the pasteboard in Win is saving in a way that Outlook can’t understand. I recommend exporting to PNG or JPG file from XD for accurate representation.

                        The cases for asset import/export/copy/paste the team has validated are defined here, https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/working-with-external-assets.html For other support not included, I encourage you to open a feature request for the team to review.

                        Hope this helps!

                      • unselectable layers under blocked layer

                        When I block a layer (A) that cover a layer (B) the layer (B) is not selectable.
                        this is a problem for designers from photoshop ,it use a different more logical behavior. In PS when i block a layer (A) a can't do nothing to it but i can easly select everything is "behind". In XD the only solution is move the Layer (A) and it is not a good UX for a Ux software :-D

                        • Compression on export for Large Artboards

                          When exporting a large artboard, for instance it's height is over 14000px(possible when designing especially for news portals), the compression is really visible both on .png and .jpg files.

                            Thanks for following up over email with files & further details!

                            Looks like what you need is to have more options for JPG export quality. Here’s two feature requests the team is reviewing to support that,
