  1. Eyedropper Reticle Renders Slowly/Strangely

    The eyedropper reticle renders very strangely and sort of disappears. Visually, the reticle gets locked at fixed point on the screen and then dissolves in the direction the pointer is moving.

    I'm using:

    macOS Mojave v10.14.5
    Adobe XD v21.1.12.3

  2. Buttons display wrongly and unable to save changes after being idle for a while

    1. Adobe Xd 21.0.12.11 (Starter)
    2. Open a Xd file, do some editions. Open another program or do whatever else to blur Adobe Xd window. After being idle for a while, go back to Adobe Xd.
    3. Work normally.
    4. Buttons display wrongly (some buttons icons replaced each other) and unable to save changes. I can't close Adobe Xd, either. I had to force the close through Windows Task Manager.
    5. Attached image shows some buttons with errors and the '*' next to the document name indicating changes were not saved.

  3. Drop shadow ruins image quality when exporting to pdf/svg

    When I'm trying to export my XD file in a pdf or SVG format it ruins the quality of the shape or image if I use a drop shadow. If I remove the shadow, the quality is maintained. Can you fix this problem somehow?

    Adobe XD version: 21.0.12.11

  4. Paste, Undo, and Save

    20.1.12.4

    After extended use of XD 30+ minutes, copy paste, undo (ctrl+z and manual), and File rename stop functioning.

    This requires XD restart to regain these functions.

    2 other teammates are reporting the same issue.

  5. Newly installed font not showing.

    Adobe XD - Version: 20.2.12.1 (Starter), Creative Cloud Sync 4.2.7.2

    I installed the Eczar-Regular.ttf google font. It shows up in Affinity Designer and WordPad, but it's not showing up in Adobe XD, even after restarting the program.

  7. Exporting to After Effects issues

    I'm having problems with how objects are rendered in AE after export from XD.

    1. Objects with gradients are converted to JPGs
    2. Blurred object with gradient applied doesn't show up at all
    3. Shadows are rendered differently than in XD (different blur and radious)
    4. Shadows and low opacity objects don't show up in preview in AE

  12. Not able to open XD

    When I open XD from either desktop icon or directly from CC installer all I get is a big white screen. When I re-boot Windows I'm able to open XD but it opens slowly. After closing XD I'm unable to open it again and I get the same white screen, so I'm forced to re-boot Windows again and so on. Its been going on since the latest may update of XD.

  13. Roll back

    Unable to roll back to prior version. Sometimes theres another version number available under the Manage link in the CC installer, but if I choose that I get a text saying theres a newer version installed, so then I have to uninstall XD and repeat, but then I receive the same message telling me theres a newer version installed etc. I'm caught in this loop. It's very unstable cause if I try again, there's no option under Manage for choosing other versions all of a sudden. I can close the installer and return to it and suddenly there are two…

  15. export to Zeplin

    Export to Zeplin doesn't contain the groups as elements just export as group and no developers can't take assets inside this groups.

    So i have to Un-grouping them and mark as export one by one.

    Need solutions.

  18. Rotating and Scaling

    When I merge and then rotate objects the responsive resize moves behaves in such a way that it doesn't take into account rotation instead inheriting its anchor from the original group.

  19. Unable to move preview window to other Desktop on Mac

    How to recreate (view attached file as well)
    - Open an XD file on a Mac
    - Launch the preview window
    - On the trackpad, swipe up with 3 fingers to see currently open windows (should also see additional desktops at the top of the screen)
    - The XD preview window disappears, so you can't move it to another Desktop

    Previously, until a recent update, the XD preview window appeared with all other open windows when swiping up with 3 fingers, and you could click and drag it to another desktop.

    Computer is a Mid-2014 Macbook pro running macOS Mojave…
