  2. Remove fractions of pixels

    Whenever I see something out of alignment is caused by fractions of a pixel 11.9, 12.6 etc. and it's impossible to fix it by click and drag I have to manually type in width 200px to correct the designs.

    What use cases are there for designers needing fractions of pixels as the default state?
    Align to pixel bug does not fix this issue, it can mess up the designs even more as others have pointed it out with svgs.

  3. Asset Search Cursor Jumps While Typing

    Repro:

    - Search assets for “symbol 34”

    - Highlight “34” to change your search string to “symbol 35”

    - Type “35”
    - Notice: after you enter “3” the cursor jumps to the beginning of the line and adds the “5” in the wrong place

    See attached file for screenshots

    p.s. wouldn't it be great if I could paste screenshots directly into this text box like I can in Jira and other bug tracking tools :)

  6. CC Libraries graphic are low resolution when imported

    Some (not all) graphics which are made in photoshop become very small/lowres when imported into XD.

    When they are imported in some photoshop file, everything looks great.

    Is there some maximum resolution that XD can handle?

  7. Adobe XD closes after going to full screen or switching between design and prototype tabs

    I've added the dump file in a previous issue I filed - but with no response for over a month.

    Its been two updates since I filed my last issue and the problem presists. I can't go full screen and can't go to prototyping without the software closing.

    Here's the dump file:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YLJFYu3Pqb0RJiaZ-zFlzUK8cN0R1Afj/view?usp=sharing

    Please help! I can hardly work with XD for quite some time and its my main work tool :(

  8. Black screen when trying to desktop preview

    My Adobe XD version is 12.0.12.10.

    I've been trying to prototype a mobile app but it doesn't seem to work. When I click 'Desktop Preview' it just comes up with a black screen with a white line through the middle.

    It would not work with the image 'prototype 1'. However with 'prototype 2' it works.

    I don't see it being a dimension issue as I've already reduced the dimensions of the mock ups in prototype 1 to something lower to fit the screen.

  11. Adobe Illustrator Scripting VERY slow - C#

    Hello,

    i'm developting a small library to access PathObjects in Illustrator (works fine for CS2, CS5, CC2015) - but i have performance problems with CC2019. I am using VS2017.

    Code looks like:

    Type AIType = Type.GetTypeFromProgID(AIAppName);

    dynamic illuApp = Activator.CreateInstance(AIType);

    if (illuApp == null)

    {

    return;

    }

    if (illuApp.Documents.Count < 1)

    {

    return;

    }

    System.Array lll = illuApp.ActiveDocument.selection;

    if (lll != null)

    {

    for (int i = 0; i < lll.Length; i++)

    {

    dynamic path = lll.GetValue(i);

    if (path != null)

    {

    var lll2 = path.PathPoints;

    Application.DoEvents();

    int iSelCount = lll2.Count;

    if (iSelCount >= 4)

    {

    string sss = path.typename;

  14. Savin loop with shared files

    Whenever I open a XD file I have shared in my CC files section and the autosave process starts in the background (Saving...) it never stops, when I try to stop the app by clicking the X in the corner it generates a message saying the document cant be saved properly. The only way to get out of this loop is to kill XD via Ctr+Alt-Delete. I'm on Windows. Always up to date on both OS and XD. This has been going for a long time and its just one out of several issues I have when TRYING to work…

  16. Half of a white screen

    I don't know why, though recently, every time I try to change the name of any of the artboards of my prototype, this happens (see screenshot (44) ). And the interesting thing is that with the white half of the workspace, the mouse that is usually a black cursor edged in white reverts to it's usual white cursor edged in black when hovering around there. Adding on, the white half is dead space, no images, artboards or text can be put there. If anything, the only other way I could describe it is that the program would then act like…

  20. Adobe Font 'Interstate Bold' not working in live preview

    Using the font 'Interstate' on a project. Have activated the family from Adobe Fonts but some of the weights aren't working on preview. Regular, extra light and black all work fine, just bold and light. It's falling back to some other sans-serif on those two
