  1. Design specs sharing (update & new link) become considerably slow after the update to v.19.0.22.9

    Hi, i have a very annoying problem with the latest XD version. Design specs sharing (update & new link) become considerably slow after the update to v.19.0.22.9.

    I've tried with a couple different files but the upload is really slow across the board. Please help!

  2. When applying updates to new components nested inside old components, the positioning of the elements inside the new component is broken

    I will describe my experience, should be easier to explain :

    I have an "old" Adobe XD file, created before the major components update. I have "old" components inside this file.

    I have created a new Adobe XD project to use as a component sheet.

    I've created new components in the new Adobe XD file. I copied one of them and pasted it inside an old component of the old file.

    Back in the new file I've made changes in one of the new components and saved.

    Back in the new file, I've updated the imported component and it broke…

  3. Copy paste from Illustrator doesn't work

    Copy/paste a shape with an outline and a transparent fill from illustrator to XD doesn't produce anything.

    It works if there is a fill or if I expand the appearance.

    It seems that the bug exists only with a transparent background.

    Mac OS 10.14.3
    XD 18.2.12.2

  4. Apostrophe bug with Ubuntu font

    I'm having an issue with apostrophes with only one font so far which is Ubuntu font.

    I'm not sure if this an actual software problem (it seems to be since it works flawlessly in other softwares such as Photoshop and Illustrator) or a font issue.

    The only way I have been able to bypass it is by typing it and immediately press the Escape key to quit editing the text box.

  5. Projects with long art boards are they distorted on design specs.

    To reproduce this issue, try with the next cases:

    For all define the artboard width to 320 px and add some shapes or text on artboards top.

    a) Set artboard height to 2,200 px, update design specs link and enter at 200% zoom.

    b) Set artboard height to 3,000 px, update design specs link and enter at 150% zoom.

    c) Set artboard height to 4,200 px, update design specs link and enter at 100% zoom.

    I share a video of the project where I notice that, but you can reproduce this error on new files easy.

    I checked my other…

  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. Dragging elements off artboard become hidden (intermittently)

    Weird issue I noticed happening the other day, and again just now. Some elements stay linked to the artboard they previously occupied even after I've dragged them off. I don't always notice this has happened, until I select an artboard and notice elements surrounding it suddenly appear, then disappear when the artboard is deselected.

    1. Version 15.0.12.8

    2. Select an element and drag it off an artboard.

    3. I expect the element to stay visible; I expect the element to stay visible even though it is not attached to an artboard.

    4. Sometimes the selected/dragged element immediately becomes hidden, even…

  9. Please fix: Layout Grid (Columns, Rows, Margins, Gutter)

    Hi please can you explain why the following doesn't work?

    How is this feature complete?

    Off centre grids?

    Adding equal margins either side results in the other being changed automatically to the wrong width?

    1900px document

    I want a 1300px grid with 30px gutter.

    1900 - 1300 = 600

    600 / 2 = 300

    Margin left 300 and then margin right automatically changes to 310?

    Grid becomes off centre and 1290???

    Huh?

  10. Symbol not updating, push override not working

    When I I update the symbol, either from one existing on the artboard and then push override, or dragging a new symbol from the symbol menu list and then changing that one, it doesn't update all of them.

    And on top of this, when I push an override (which does not work), my cmd+z no longer works, Adobe XD stops registering changes so EDIT>UNDO is greyed out, and then if I close the document, even though I have made changes (which it's unable to register) it does not prompt me to save the changes.

    Huge mess. What is going on?

    Hi Jess,

    Can you please clarify the issue you’re having with push overrides? Only text and images can be overridden in a symbol. If you push overrides, all symbol instances (including the symbol definition) should update with the changes in the symbol instance you’re editing.

    Is this not the case for you? Does this behavior happen with all XD files, or just one file in particular?

    We’re investigating the undo/redo issue.

    Thank you,
    Joe

  14. Adobe XD suddenly keeps freezing after the latest update

    XD keeps freezing after the last update. It seems like its trying to save on the background while transforming or moving an object or just about anyhting in XD. And when i quit the program it asks me to save, I agree and poef. Instant result. The freez vanished. The freez seems some sort of buffering or so.. Some mouse options also get stuck and I cant copy, paste or delete things while its freezing.

    Hello Dennis:

    Are you still seeing this problem? If so, it would help me to better understand what’s going with the following info:
    - XD version
    - OS version
    - Creative Cloud userID
    - Enable crash dumps and share the file, https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/how-to-generate-crash-dump-on-windows-machine.html

    You can post to cloud storage (Dropbox, WeTransfer.com, etc) and email to xduv@adobe.com

    Thanks!

  15. 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

  16. Impossible to rotate more than 360 using auto-animate

    I'm loving auto-animate, it's a great feature, so powerful but... since we can't give to any object more than 360deg of rotation, it couses an animation problem.

  19. 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.
