Overlays appear blurry/low resolution in preview mode

Adobe XD v12.0.12.10 on Mac (I can't update yet because of my OC version)

Overlays appear blurry/low resolution in preview mode.

Seems like the prototype preview isn't rendering overlays properly, making them look blurry compared to the elements in the base artboard.

Attached screenshot shows an overlay (hover effect) on the left and the base artboard on the right. Naturally we need the overlay to be as crisp & clear as the rest of the interface.

    Hello Tomas,

    I could see little blurriness with the overlay text on a monitor which has resolution 1920x1080
    But I am just wondering what is causing this blurriness? Do you see this issue with any other document of yours? I'll check with our team internally meanwhile. Thanks for your patience.

    Did you try to resize the main artboard so that it's positively larger than your screen resolution? I'm pretty sure that's the culprit.

    Hi Tomas,

    We were not able to recreate issue with your test files and hence kind of stuck.

    Do you see the issue with latest XD version i.e. 16.0.2?

    Can you try creating the document one more time and see?

    Regards,
    Lalita

    I use the default 100% scale.

    Also, as described above, the issue isn't general ("things in XD"), but specifically and exclusively just Overlays in preview mode.

    Were you able to reproduce the problem with the files I've sent in?

    Hi ,

    Regret the delayed response. Can you please share file on xduv@adobe.com?

    Link which you shared below doesn't have the file anymore.

    If we could see issue with your file, we could log bug. Unfortunately not seeing issue with our test files.

    Hi, I've been having the same problem.

    Here's a test file that reproduces the problem on my system (W10):

    And here's a screenshot of what you should be seeing (the popup on the left is sharp, the same popup (on the right) rendered via Overlay is blurry:

    My hunch is that it has something to do with artboard size. When the main artboard [where overlay is to appear] is small, everything seems ok.
    But when the artboard is near my screen's physical resolution, the problem shows reliably. In the test file, the main artboard is 1920x1080, my screen is 1920x1280.

    Hi Marianne,

    Can you please share a gif of the issue happening?
    Or may be your test files so that we can give it a try at our end and investigate further?
