    Hello Alex:

    Not really certain what you mean. Can you provide further details on what steps you take when hitting this issue?

    There was a recent post where selecting items within a symbol used in multiple artboards resulted in multiple instances during export. Could this be what you mean? Let me know if this is it, or if you’re encountering something different.

    Thanks!

  4. Symbol, prototype link bug

    If I create a symbol and have a prototype link within it, like a footer (see attached), I then use that symbol as a repeatable object throughout my designs it follows that the link should be on every art board on every footer as that is why I created a symbol, so I wouldn't need to link 100 times over. If I didn't wan't the same function from one footer I would ungroup (not make it a symbol any more) and customise the links I needed.

    Hello James:

    I’m not sure I understand what you’re describing. Are you trying to add hyperlinks? Currently there is no support for this.

    Looking at the project you’ve included, I’m able to insert multiple instances of the symbol and it shows all the included design elements.

    Can you update with detailed steps of what you’re trying to do, as well as details of where it’s not working the way you’d expect.

    Thanks!

  6. Some text gets removed when copying and pasting from PDF

    Using version 4.0.12.6.

    Every time I copy and paste text from a PDF to XD, some text doesn't show in XD. I've noticed this especially with the "fi" letter combination.

    So if I am pasting "finance" it would only show "nance".

  9. marking of fields doesnt work

    For example:
    If you have an Object selected and you want to change the radius for the rounded corners.
    If you try to mark the value in Object inspector as you would a Text in Notepad or any Input field via click and then mark the text by moving mouse left (or right if you clicked left of the text).
    You are loosing the focus at all, if you then enter any value you change the opacity but not the thing you are trying to enter.

    breaks my flow every time.

    Hi Danian,

    Thanks for your report.

    Could you please provide more details – does this happen every time you hover over the lock icon, even with a new document? Did it perhaps occur after your system went to sleep and then was resumed? Any further information that might help us to reproduce the problem?

    Thank you,
    Joe

  11. Slow working with CC Files

    Downloading from CC Files is very slow within AdobeXD app.
    Uploading my .xd file to CC Files folder is working good, with no delays. But it takes about 5~60 minutes (no jokes!) to download my project inside AdobeXD app. Project is simple and about 3~5 mb size. Internet in my phone is superfast (and cellular and wi-fi, no proxies, no firewalls).

    Every time when I try to test the document on phone I wait for downloading for about 30 minutes and it drives me crazy.

    AdobeXD PC version: 4.0.12.6, CC Sync 2.4.4.71, CC PC version 4.3.0.256
    AdobeXD app Android version:…

  12. Transitions only dissolve on certain links

    All of my artboards are the same size, and I turned off vertical scrolling just to be sure, but whenever I click on my first link to "slide down" to another page, it dissolves.

    I checked all the settings and it only happens for the artboard immediately after my home page. Also removed and added new target links to try again, and the same thing keeps happening.

    We tried to reproduce this issue but haven’t been able to yet.

    Does this happen any time you click Clear Menu, or just once? If you can make it happen repeatedly, please let us know and we’ll send you instructions for gathering a crash log on your system.

  14. Hard to get rotate cursor in top left corner of object linked to CC Libraries

    Trying to get the cursor to show the rotate icon when hovering over the corner node. It appears for a glimpse but cannot get it to show so I can actually rotate the rotate an object imported from CC libraries.

    app is update on Jan 24th

    Thanks for reporting this. The large “linked graphic” icon in the upper left is making the rotation hit area too hard to target in that corner!

    As a workaround, you can use any of the other corners or any of the 4 handles on the sides to rotate the image as well. Since those use regular, smaller-size handles, you should find rotate much easier to target there.

  15. command drag does not disable the snap to

    I'm trying to place an object and it's snapping to the grid. I tried the command key click and drag the object and it's still snapping.

    Can you post a screenshot of your artboard grid settings? And if possible, also a sceen recording showing what happens while you’re holding down the Cmd key?

    Please note though if you are way zoomed in, you’ll see XD is snapping to 1px increments no matter what your artboard grid settings are. This pixel snapping can’t be disabled with Cmd — if you want to shift things off the pixel grid, you’ll have to edit the X/Y/W/H values directly in the Properties panel.

    Can you give more detail so we can understand this better? Could you list the exact steps you’re following and what you expected XD to do differently at each step?

    Screenshots or a link to a screencast recording would help too.

  17. File save, "is in the trash issue"

    File save, "is in the trash issue".

    For some reason every time I make changes to my document the filename changes to include a set of numbers. Then when I attempt to dave I receive this alert. (see attached image)

    Very frustrating as i keep having to delete generated files by Adobe XD.

  18. Crash: Adding/Subtracting 2 objects + Anchor points

    To reproduce

    1) Draw 2 shapes
    2) Select both shapes
    3) Either Add, Subtract, Intersect or Exclude Overlap shapes (same outcome for each I guess)
    4) Double click on any point of the path to get an anchor point
    5) Adobe XD crashes and closes.

    A fix for this in the next update would be appreciated thanks.

  19. Pan cursor enables even when you have something selected

    If you select an item then press space the cursor changes to the pan symbol even though you are still in edit mode.

    This is especially noticeable when your too quick pressing the mouse before 'space' to pan around and believe you're in pan mode but items on your canvas start moving around.

    Does this performance issue get resolved if you update your GPU drivers? Some of these problems happen because your GPU drivers fall out of date with the version of Windows you’re running. You should grab the drivers directly from your graphics card manufacturer.
