  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. Reset repeat grid spacing when set to 0 first

    Made a repeatgrid from a component, reduced spacing to 0 and continued to work. Now i want to increase the spacing between items, i can't select the 'spacer' anymore. Just shows a single pixel line which i can't select.

  8. SHIFT to constrain fails on inner elements within a component

    XD Version 20.1.12.4
    Windows 10 - 1809 (OS Build 17763.557)

    When editing ("double-clicked") a component with an inner element, if I try to constrain the size of the inner element using SHIFT, it does not constrain the size. The behavior works as expected when editing inner elements of a group ("double-clicked") but not within a component.

    Draw a large circle.
    Draw a smaller square within the circle.
    Select both shapes.
    Align middle + center both shapes to each other.
    Create a component from the selection (CTRL-K).
    Double-click the component to go into editing mode.
    Select the inner square.
    Hold SHIFT…

  9. 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.

  13. paragraph spacing on live preview (mobile)

    When paragraph spacing is applied to a text area there is some strange behavior when viewing through a connected mobile in preview. The paragraph spacing appears randomly where there are no line breaks. It is fine when viewed through the preview on my main mac screen though. Not sure what could be causing this but there's definitely no rogue line breaks in my text area.

  15. SVG export issues with Cordova apps

    Hi,

    We are currently developing an Ionic / Cordova based app using Adobe XD.

    We are however experiencing a lot of issues with assets exported from XD in SVG.

    The first issue we encountered at the time was the following:

    https://github.com/ionic-team/ionic/issues/17330

    You can see on the github thread all the test files and the fix we ended up finding, where our engineers had to manually go into the SVG code itself to fix it. Less than ideal...

    Then, the issue is coming back again. We have an artboard where we want to use SVG icons so that we can reduce…

  17. Spec Scroll Speed too slow on Firefox

    The scrolling at spec page (https://xd.adobe.com/spec/) by Adobe XD with Firefox for Linux is always slow. Tested in multiple machines running Ubuntu, and Archlinux. Tweaking smooth scrolling, scroll speed, and scroll lines make no difference. Other browser behave normally, tested with Opera, Chrome/Chromium, qutebrowser.

    Sample page: https://xd.adobe.com/spec/0d66ca28-ff47-4565-5cd8-3e44ba473d58-7b57/screen/2f0a55f7-a1a3-40c7-a227-1651d09af483/Home/

  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.

  20. 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…
