  1. Losing information already saved

    I really do not understand why some things happen with Adobe XD. this is the second time I've saved a project, and when I go to open it, it simply opens an older file, which I already had a balance before. I simply missed a day's work because XD resolved to unload information already saved in the project.

    My version is on 19.2.22.3, and I attuned it to just over 1 hourr

  2. Immediately states out of date and needs to update on fresh install, then won't update.

    Fresh download and install today via installer, states it is out of date immediately. I click 'update' rather than quit, and it just quits. Cannot install update. Never has been installed - fresh install on latest Mac OS. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that doesn't work either.

  4. Fix position doesn't works

    1.- 19.1.22.6
    2.- I design the screens, group some elements (to make some footer) and press "fixed position".
    3.- That works that funcionality. I need it a lot, to test my prototype.
    4.- This group disappear when I try to see it like preview on my notebook or mobile. It worked for me, until October (2018).

    PS: I wrote months ago, and there's no answer.

    Thanks in advance!

  5. Auto Animate Dissolves instead of animating - Chrome

    The auto animate feature dissolves instead of animating on web prototypes. This doesn't occur in every instance in the prototype.

    Just started running into this issue, has been working fine until now. I've tried on multiple browsers with no luck.

    I can share a screen capture video, just not in public.

  6. Sharing Prototype limits to 11 pages

    Every time I share a prototype it limits to 11 pages. When there is no prototype in the design (like no animation/actions) it shows the full 18 pages.

    I tried renaming dartboards, restarting, and creating a whole new file and it keeps happening.

  8. Crash on XD at startup (V 19.1.22)

    After I run the XD (V 19.1.22) I see a grey screen then it freezes, after a couple of seconds it crashes. The previous versions work fine.

    Also, when installing both versions at the same time, the oldest version fails at installing on Creative Cloud App

  10. Windows: Clicking Escape doesn't exit Options panel when focus is on Lock icon

    Version: XD19

    Steps:
    1) Draw a rectangle
    2) Set width value, press tab
    3) Set height value, press tab
    4) Lock icon is focused

    Expected: I expect to be able to exit just like I can in any of the other text fields, however the blue outliner is telling me the lock icon is still active.

    Actual result: I cannot exit, lock icon stays focused.

    Workaround: Press tab once more and you can exit again.

  11. Can't Export from XD to After Effects.

    I accidentally updated my after effects from 15.1.2 to the newest version but needed to revert so I deleted the new version and went back to the old. XD will no longer will transfer my files to AE. I need to stay on the old version of AE for now for certain plug in compatibility. Please help!

  12. Replace font dialog box won't open

    When opening a document on a machine that has a missing font, the "Replace font" dialog won't open.

    Steps:
    - Have a document that uses one or more fonts that are unavailable in the system
    - Right click the missing font in the assets panel and select "Replace font""
    - EXPECTED: The replace font dialog box opens to select a substitute font.
    - ACTUAL: Nothing happens. At all.

    Note: Recorded on a mac machine, also tested on a windows machine with the same outcome.

  13. Review's Copy link is copying the wrong link from a different xd file

    When updating the review link the copy link at the bottom copies the wrong link of another xd file. Very annoying and not workable.

  14. Internal padding in components BUG

    Adobe XD version 19.1.22.6 MAC OS

    Love what a component can do. It is extremely fluid with auto-animate which the symbols weren't. The bug I found has been posted in the forum but it's not clear. The steps are below

    1. Make a simple rectangle or anything. let's say it's 100px by 100px
    2. Duplicate it.
    3. Add shadow to the copy.
    4. Make the first one a component (CMD+K).
    5. Make the second one a component.

    You'll see the original rectangle remains of 100px by 100px
    but the one with the shadow effect has invisible padding added.

    I've recorded…

  17. Spec enlarges visible content

    Nesting all used Components in one longer Screen stretches all visible Items. Chrome stays proportional, safari is stretching the content vertically even stronger and worse.

    When hovering, the focus is showing the correct position and size where the Items should be. I noticed this for the first time after the may update was released.

  19. Layout grid opacity incorrect when viewing artboard at 100% zoom. (ghost grids!)

    Windows 10
    Adobe XD 19.1.22.6
    ---
    Sometimes, in design mode, the layout grid seems to display at the wrong opacity setting - always too opaque. It's impossible to fade the grid out as much as I want.

    Only seems to happen at 100% zoom. See images. One image at 100% and the other at 75%, yet the grid looks different.
    SEE IMAGES: 01 and 02

    I have several other artboards in the same file. Only this one artboard has this issue.

    . . .

    I noticed something, as I was creating the attached images - if I move the whole…

  20. Cannot retain aspect ratio when resizing component

    I designed a vector logo in Illustrator and pasted it into XD, but had trouble using it as a component because it wouldn't resize properly.

    Please refer to my document:

    The logo would resize proportionally if I don't turn it into a component and resize it while holding Shift.

    However, if I check Lock Aspect or turn the logo into a component, the pattern cannot be resized without being distorted.
