  1. Auto Animate: Unable to morph colour from one shape to another

    I saw the video "What's new in Adobe XD" where it shows one screen changing colour to another screen - https://youtu.be/bx5kzCmVFrM?t=1746

    So I tried to do it with this example gif and it doesn't work.

    Even on the Adobe XD Updates page, you mentioned you can change the color between two artboards.

    What's going on?

        • Long Press for menu not working

          I just upgraded XD V13 on iOS and the long press for menus no longer works. Long press brings up a dialogue "No Microphone Access....." How can I access the menu now?

          • shared prototypes not visible

            Please refer to the attached video.

            one of the stakeholders reported she couldn't see the new prototype at assets.adobe.com. I shared it with her. We found out, they appear when toggling to the listview and back, or when resizing the browser window.

            After a browser refresh, the same behaviour occurs. Only one prototype is visible, the others appear after resize or toggle list / grid view.

            Is this a known issue?

              • [Win 10] Pasting objects stops working after a while

                Windows version 10.0.17134
                Adobe XD version 12.0.12.10
                Creative Cloud Sync version 4.0.0.46

                I needed to update the drop shadows on several tiles across several artboards, so I hit Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Alt+V to copy and paste the appearance of my desired tiles to the rest. After repeating the process, the paste command would stop working.

                This bug extends to regular pasting. I can cut (and possibly copy) an object and its appearance, but I cannot paste it back onto an artboard. The only way to fix this is to restart XD, which gets very annoying if I have several documents open…

                    • Timed transitions in prototype breaks Zeplin export

                      I found that if you are using timed transitions in your prototype, it will not longer be possible to export any artboards of your project to Zeplin because of document parsing failure.

                      If I change the trigger from "Time" to "Tap", the Zeplin export works again.

                      A demo XD file is attached.

                      Here is the simple prototype:

                      I'm using XD version 10.0.12.10 on the Mac OS 10.13.6

                      • pan

                        XD seems to get stuck in Zoom model for me and does not pan at all. I use a dell laptop with a touch pad and Windows 10. You tend to get stuck in Zoom and your work area/project totally disappears off screen. There is no way to get the pan feature to work so that you relocate your work. The only way I could get through the tutorial was to zoom in on parts of it section by section. I'm used to applications that zoom when you click the zoom button and then automatically stop zooming when you stop…

                        • High CPU usage during idle

                          Version of Adobe XD: 12.0.12.10
                          OS: Windows 10 Pro (1803)
                          CPU: Intel i7-7700HQ
                          RAM: 16GB

                          This is a duplicate of https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/19836358-high-cpu-usage-during-idle but that bug is listed as inactive and is not able to be voted on or added to.

                          Everything runs fine when I am using the computer, but if I close the display while the laptop is plugged in and not sleeping then XD takes 30-40% of the CPU and runs the computer HOT. This is a problem if I just set the computer down on the arm of a couch or chair and then come back to find…

                            Greetings James:

                            Appreciate the link to earlier issue post. I did some digging on my end and found the problem reported there has since been fixed. Thinking that what you’re seeing may have a different root cause.

                            Some questions to help with figuring this out:
                            - How did you determine XD CPU usage if the laptop is closed?
                            - Is anything else running aside from XD?
                            - Is XD the focus app when you close the laptop?
                            - Do you note this issue in other cases (like if XD is idle and laptop is open)

                            Thanks!
                            Nina

                            When you scale down an icon with the size palette the result is different from scaling down using the image corners.

                            It should always be as I change the size from the corners

                              Hi @Andrea,

                              Thanks for the extra information. This is a known bug that we are working to fix.

                              As a workaround, you can select the icon in the canvas, then go to Responsive Resize in the PI and click the switch to the left (Off). Then you should be able to resize it without breaking it apart.

                              If you wish to keep the icon responsive (i.e., fix a direction), then after turning off Responsive Resize for the icon, group it, and then the group can have directions fixed while resizing.

                              Best regards,
                              Joe

                            • Browser Prototype artboards don't scale to fit screen size

                              When viewing a Prototype in a web browser, artboards no longer scale to fit monitor screen size. Neither pressing the "Open in browser" and copying the link into a browser will scale the artboard. Usually doing this will scale my artboard to fit what every monitor screen size I am using.

                              I have tested in Google Chrome, Firefox and Edge, all with the same result.
                              50% of my artboard is no longer visible. The artboard size I use is 1280x720.

                              The issue only started today (19th Sept 2018), worked fine yesterday.

                              Version of Adobe XD used: 12.0.12.10

                              • Gradient direction is different when saved into assets panel

                                When I'm trying to use a gradient from my assets it works, but not in the direction I saved it in.

                                1. Created gradient on shape
                                2. Added gradient to assets (the preview in the assets shows how I saved it, in the correct way)
                                3. Applying this gradient works, but the direction is from top to bottom instead of left to right.

                                Feel free to ask for more information! Added a image, right button is how it is applyed while it should apply like the left button.

                                  在ps中字体设计未为pingfang sf 导入到xd 后变成 arial

                                  Font type is incorrect when importing from psd to XD

                                  The font design in ps is not changed to ping for pingfang sf after importing into xd

                                  • Artboard order in Design Specs

                                    I expect that in the design specs condivision the artboard order is the same I've assigned on the left panel.

                                    I can't figure which order the software is assigning during the condivision.

                                    • Overlays do not keep position when moving elements

                                      When moving elements, there is no way to move all corresponding overlays that have been attached without moving them all manually.

                                      I am currently trying to move a navbar at the top of the page with alert and messages overlays to simulate windows popping over the UI and I have to manually move the overlays when I want to copy it to multiple artboards. The overlays appear completely off screen, no matter where I put the artboard. It would be good to have a way to fix the overlays in position with the parent object.

                                      On the same subject, the…

                                      • unselectable layers under blocked layer

                                        When I block a layer (A) that cover a layer (B) the layer (B) is not selectable.
                                        this is a problem for designers from photoshop ,it use a different more logical behavior. In PS when i block a layer (A) a can't do nothing to it but i can easly select everything is "behind". In XD the only solution is move the Layer (A) and it is not a good UX for a Ux software :-D
