  1. Copy/Paste shortcuts and menu options no longer work

    I just downloaded the November 2017 update. I opened a new document. When I try to use copy/paste shortcuts on any object, nothing happens. When I right click and copy/paste using the menu, nothing happens. The only way I can copy an object is by right clicking the object in the layers palette and duplicating it. The keyboard shortcut for group works fine (CTRL+G), as well as select all (CTRL+A).
    I opened a project that I started before downloading the update. The copy and paste functions work just fine. They also work if I am in an Illustrator project. I…

    Did you just update your Windows 10 to Fall Creators Update? We’ve heard from our users that many graphics drivers have been invalidated with this update, so you’ll need to go to the manufacturer’s website to download and install the latest. Let us know if this resolves the issue for you!

  2. Open multiple projects

    I can't believe you remove opening multiple project. It was fine when it's beta. Now I have to close recent project to view or copy something from another project!!

  3. artboard order

    i have a document with 20+ arboards. When i share this prototype the first artboard that my client sees is not the artboard they need to see "homepage" The home artboard is the first artboard i created in this file so its should be de default artboard i gues??

    A couple days a go when the file was maybe 8 artboard the prototype displayed the right "homepage" artboard at the start of the prototype.

    I dont know why en how this changed

  5. "Something went wrong"

    I have a prototype I want to share for review. Whenever I open in browser or try to embed, this error pops up. No codes, just this message. Anything I can do?

  6. XD Prototype Has Missing Elements

    Elements and images are missing from the prototype, in my case it's in the footer. I'm running a mac and checked it on Chrome, Safari, Firefox and on my coworker's Windows computer -- all with the latest OS and software updates. I'm also using the current version of XD (16.0.2.8)

    Noticing this for particularly longer artboards. This one happens to be 1680 x 8684.

  8. Character styles are not tagging correctly. Changing in unexpected locations in file

    I have four character styles that I am using in my file. The text is styled the way I want, but when I paste additional copy...text that is not even close to the pasted text changes style. I have before and after pictures attached to show. This has happened several times. I am on the Windows platform. Also note that the pasted text changes styles i the middle.

  9. Fixed position item disappears

    I have set up a page to include a fixed position item on the page. When I select fixed position check box and click preview or check my preview link the item disappears. When I unclick the fixed position box the item reappears. Seems to be a bug with the fixed position tool.

  10. Unable to select multiple layers across multiple groups

    If two layers live in different groups, it's not possible to select them both. A use case for this is attempting to change the fill color for multiple layers, but they all live in different groups. This is standard functionality in other design tools.

    See screen recording: https://www.dropbox.com/s/98yflc2nz9w3xlw/select-from-multiple-groups.mov?dl=0

    ^ I'm holding the Command key while trying to select multiple layers.

    It seems this bug was marked as "by design" in a previous post, but I'd like to raise the issue again since this is a major pain point for me. Anyone else agree?

    I've had this happen a couple times. I try to drag a layer when designing and it freezes over everything on my monitor. Only fix i've found is restarting my computer. Super annoying - please fix. Thanks!

  12. Repeat grid is now including shadow in the spacing value

    When an element has a shadow and a repeat grid is applied the spacing option now includes the shadow width or height as part of that padding.

  14. Make XD run stable! fix bugs instead of releasing features.

    I like that Adobe has released a multi platform prototyping tool with XD. Anyways it sometimes can be very very annoying working with adobe xd, since it has so many bugs. Instead of releasing new features I belive Adobe should be more focused on getting XD stable and bug free!

    Hello, see below for answers.

    - Doesn’t react to key-events anymore (happens very often)

    I think this may be due to known issue, https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/34689346 While not completely fixed, our latest release (XD 14) has some improvements.

    - Doesn’t sync to the cloud correctly (Icons, images, etc. don’t showing up on cloud-prototype – I think in export-files as well)

    I’m not sure if you mean, updating your prototype doesn’t show the changes made in the file, or saving to cloud drive does not sync the file. Can you clarify?

    - Sometimes vertical scrolling by clicking shirft + scroll, doesn’t work (it is zooming instead of scrolling sidewards)

    I think this is another symptom of the above keyboard response issue.

    - No Pointer-Event, when hovering a project in cloud.
    Can you share more details about this? I’m not sure what you mean.

    - Clients cant log into the prototype and have to…

  15. Items keeps going into the pasteboard instead of within the artboard

    Trying to create auto animate between two artboards. When I need to put the items outside the artboard, it goes into the pasteboard.

    There is a workaround to put them in the group so a part of it stays in the artboard. But it's still not good enough.

  16. Dissolve transition flickering (blinking) to the top of the page when not supposed to

    Scenario:
    - scroll down
    - click a button which is set to "dissolve" and "preserve scroll position"

    Expected outcome: smooth (fade out - fade in) transition to the next page

    Bug outcome: screen jumps (flickers) to the top of the current page THEN transitions to the next page.

    See this example prototype: https://xd.adobe.com/view/c11bbd2e-3158-4636-4dd1-3dadc61e3211-b72a/

    I think it's similar (but not the same) to this issue: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/34939726-transitions-between-overlays-blink-the-screen

  17. Responsive Size always active.

    Hey guys, although I really love the new Responsive Size feature, I consider that it's very annoying to have this functionality activated by default.

    In the 90% of the cases when I drop new icons from Illustrator or when I create new forms in XD itself, I have to unselect the option of "Responsive Size" because it blows up my form while resizing.

  19. undo

    This idea was posted before but closed? WoW - not sure why - this feature is desperately needed. Often have to just quit XD and start over again because there is not easy/intuitive way to undo things.
