  1. updating existing prototype or specifications produces new prototype/specifications hyperlink

    When updating existing prototype or specifications it sometimes produces new prototype/specifications hyperlink. This is especially notorious when a project has multiple workflows (home art-boards).

    When I entered a name matching an exiting project to update hoping XD will update replacing this one, than clicked UPDATE - XD created a new link instead with the same "project" name.

  2. Duration time not visible. Opacity option as well.

    Duration time not visible. It is impossible to set it up. Opacity option as well. No way to choose/type in a value.

    It's been almost 2 years (since I posted this issue here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2425339) and this bug still exists. Am I the only (unlucky) person on this Earth that is having this issue? See file attached.

  3. Prototype changes page when travelling between virtual desktops.

    When viewing a shared prototype, the prototype will actually change pages when you navigate between Virtual Desktops on Windows 10. The keyboard commands for this are CTRL+WIN+Arrow (I assume this is because the prototype is listening for an arrow key press to navigate between pages). Ideally it would check to see if the CTRL+WIN combination is also present to avoid this, that way I can navigate between desktops without losing my place in the prototype.

  9. Can't open published spec/prototype.

    After publishing a prototype/ spec with password, I tried to view it in the browser. However, after I entered the correct password, the password text box border becomes red and there wasn't any text indication.

  13. I can run the app after March Update

    I can even run the app after March Update! I'm very angry and if I don't receive any answer, I will decide to stop using Adobe XD! I tried many ways to let your team know about this problem including Twitter and Adobe XD user voice.

    Adobe XD: 17.0.12.11
    MacOS: 10.14.3
    Adobe CC: latest version

  14. XD files appear as folders in Adobe CC app for MS Teams

    This is about the Adobe CC app added to Microsoft Teams.
    By Adobe
    Version 2.5.0.0

    When viewing a shared XD, it appears in the Adobe CC app as a folder and not an .xd file. As a result you can open it and trash the content of the XD file instead of the view and downloaded options you get with an .ai or .indd

  16. Publish Design Specs Broken in version 17.0.12.11

    XD Version 17.0.12.11 broke the publishing of design specs. I get the message "You do not have access to this service. Contact your IT administrator to gain access." The IT administrator says nothing has changed. I've been using design specs since October 2018 on March 14 2019 (I guess that's when my XD got an update) it stopped working. I can downgrade XD to version 16 and I am able to publish design specs BUT I can't open any of my XD files because they were saved with version 17, so Im stuck. I don't want to go back to…

  17. Resize causes random alignment mismatch and unpredictable size

    I was trying to follow the 1 day of adobe XD progressive challenge, but could not keep with the pace due to the bugs. You guys need to just follow your own tutorials by a few folks at your workplace to discover many of them.

    See the attached file to see the bug.

  18. Art-boards exported in non-sequential order upon Share for Development

    I used "Share for Development" of a sequence of art-boards (screens) linked one to another sequentially. When Development opened to see specifications (in a browser) sequential navigation was lost, making dev-team work harder.

    Why XD exports art-boards changing sequential order? How XD determines sequential order?

    Attached shows sequential order and interaction connection between art-boards in XD. Link to exported sequence:

    Hello Leo:

    The order is top to bottom, left to right. I’ve found that if one artboard is lower or higher it could alter the order. If you go into your XD doc, you can verify the top of the artboard is aligned to the one next to it. You can verify the order by clicking on Preview play button and navigate using arrow keys.

    Hope this helps!

  19. Fixed element - problems when previewing in mobile web share.

    I'm having issues with Fixing elements. Hopefully, you can help me understand what I'm doing wrong, or if its a current limitation of XD.

    Fixing elements to the top of the page, like a top nav bar or title work perfectly fine.

    However when it comes to fixing a bottom bar element, either naviagtion, or a call to action i'm having issues.

    My example is prototyping for iPhone 8 (375 x 667pt)

    A few problems:

    - It's not ideal to have to place the element over the top of the design your working on, and not ideal for sharing with…
