  1. Undo (cmd + z) stops working

    I have discovered that the undo function (cmd + z) stops working in XD after I have worked on a document for a while. Things that I typically undo is positioning of elements. Undo starts working again if you quit and reopen XD.

    This has happened a few times the last week.

    Environment details:
    - macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6
    - Adobe XD version 11.0.22.10

    • OpenType-SVG color rendering issue

      Now that macOS Mojave support OpenType-SVG fonts, they are showing up ok in XD when editing text, but rendering is switching them back to greyscale when deselecting the text. And turns to black shapes when zooming in the text.

      Issue on XD. 13.0.12.14 with both Gilbert and Trajan Color (no issue with OT-SVG bitmap fonts, only color vector ones).

        • scaling with responsive or not

          When you scale down an icon with the size palette the result is different from scaling down using the image corners.

          It should always be as I change the size from the corners

            Hi @Andrea,

            Thanks for the extra information. This is a known bug that we are working to fix.

            As a workaround, you can select the icon in the canvas, then go to Responsive Resize in the PI and click the switch to the left (Off). Then you should be able to resize it without breaking it apart.

            If you wish to keep the icon responsive (i.e., fix a direction), then after turning off Responsive Resize for the icon, group it, and then the group can have directions fixed while resizing.

            Best regards,
            Joe

          • 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

              Greetings Armando:

              Thanks for sharing your feedback. Following the steps you provide

              What are you copying from Illustrator? Have you tried saving the graphic or text style to CC Libraries? What about saving as svg and importing into XD? For the web files, what happens when you try and drag into XD?

              For your reference, here’s the full summary of XD support for image import, https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/working-with-external-assets.html

              Thanks!

            • Some Fonts Assignments Do Not Transition Between Mac and PC

              When I transition from my work Mac and my home PC some fonts (Roboto Condensed and Arial Narrow for example) have slightly different naming conventions, so Adobe XD does not know how to resolve them. That said with the names being so obvious and the fact they're such prominent fonts, it would seem reasonable that Adobe XD should know how to fix them or suggest the fixes. Attached are screenshots showing me repairing Roboto Condensed on my PC after transitioning files over from my Mac.

              • opacity in dev spec

                In the dev spec is not shown the value of opacity of an element.
                It's always at 100%

                In my case it's a symbol grouped in a folder with a 60% of opacity.

                • Shift selecting in layers panel produces unexpectable selection results

                  Bug produced on Win 10 Enterprise (10.0.15063), Adobe XD (12.0.12.10). Steps (numbers are aligned with attachment file names):

                  1. Hover over a single shape on an artboard. The shape is inside a group. Neither the group nor any of its children is selected at the moment.

                  2. Ctrl + click hovered shape to select it.

                  3. Shift + click on another shape inside layers panel in order to select chosen layer range.

                  4. As a result a random layer range (different than expected) is selected and the layers panel scrolls away from the shift + clicked layer.

                  • Shadow

                    1. - 12.0.12

                    2. - If you export something that uses Shadow, the Object as well as the shadow get's exported in a poor quality. Once you remove the shadow, its exporting fine again.

                    3. - "Vector" Style export of objects with shadow.

                    4. - Bad quality with shadows.

                      • Windows 10: Resizing (reducing) Grouped objects does not not maintain proper alignment

                        As shown on page 76, step 2, in the Adobe training book, "Xd CC 2018 release, Classroom in a Book", for Windows 10, the camera object (a group of several objects) does not reduce to the proper image as shown in the book - when the value, 25 is applied to the "x" value in the Property Inspector. Note, the Mac demo video included with the online training for this book DOES show the proper image when reduced. This appears to be a Windows-only issue, I believe. Sorry if this is a redundant but - I did search to see…

                          • Elements subtracted bad rendered on Device preview

                            When I put the design in device preview mode some objects created with subtract/intersect etc are bad rendered.

                            Take a look at the screenshot (on the left the XD design mode, on the right the App screenshot).

                            Thanks

                                • gradient asset

                                  When I'm trying to use a gradient from my assets it works, but not in the direction I saved it in.

                                  1. Created gradient on shape
                                  2. Added gradient to assets (the preview in the assets shows how I saved it, in the correct way)
                                  3. Applying this gradient works, but the direction is from top to bottom instead of left to right.

                                  Feel free to ask for more information! Added a image, right button is how it is applyed while it should apply like the left button.

                                    • ! Empty Symbols and Differences between instances

                                      Using Adobe XD 11 and Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 (macBook Pro 15" 2017)

                                      Hi,

                                      I was working on a project, and while I was editing a symbol I accidently deleted an element. I clicked Cmd+Z to revert, but no matter how far I undo, it will never bring it the element back.

                                      Then I went to the assets panel to see what happened to that symbol, It showed that it was being used 35 times, but couldn't find it anywhere in the design file.

                                      I then dragged the symbol to pasteboard because it disappeared on all artboards. It shows…

                                      • Thai language problem occurs in some bold font (e.g. Helvetica) on Mac OSX

                                        Steps to reproduce the issues
                                        1. Use Helvetica font and select "Bold"
                                        2. Write some Thai text like in an example "หน้าแรก" and then deselect it, the XD show wrong text as you can see in attach image.

                                        This issue occurs in many standard fonts for example Helvetica, Arial only in Mac. I've already tested in Windows, it has no issue.

                                        Version of Adobe XD
                                        - 11.0.22.10
