  1. Please enhance Quality on exported artboards

    Hello,

    I have noticed that no matter which file format I choose (JPG, PNG, PDF) the image looks fuzzy or kind or blurry affecting presentation with clients.

    When I export vectors from Illustrator even to JPG , the quality is perfect. But on adobe XD the Quality gets fuzzy or lowered.

    Could this be enhanced? Thanks :)

  2. Can't open multiple .xd files at the same time.

    1. Adobe XD 1.0.12.19
    2. For example, I have 2 xd files, let's name them 1.xd and 2.xd. If I open 1.xd, I can't open 2.xd at the same time. Tried to open 2.xd, can't open 1.xd as well.
    3. 1.xd and 2.xd should be opened at the same time.
    4. Only 1 file can be opened at a time.

  3. "Missing Fonts" alert on XD android mobile app.

    We purchased some fonts and used them in the design but I cannot preview some of these fonts on the android XD app for some reason. Because of this issue, I couldn't check the visual design on the device it is designed for. As an alternative, (though frustrating) I had to take screenshot of the layout and paste it in the artboard in order to preview it on the phone.

    Font used: FS jack

    Hello Samson:

    Thanks for your feedback. Font management has been a long standing delicate proposition – long before XD existed. The behavior you’re noting is not a design choice on our part, it’s a fact of life for how fonts work.

    You can see the font in web prototype because it is converted to bitmap. When previewing in mobile the original XD file is loaded and that needs a font file to reference.

    As a workaround, you can convert fonts to paths. If this is not a good solution for you, XD files can be previewed in XD mobile via USB. This should show the fonts in the file with no errors.

    Thanks,
    Nina

    Hi, all-

    After some exploration, this is a difference in the way UWP handles icons and the way that the Win32 platform handles icons. With UWP, the icons are defined as slightly smaller, which means that they will not line up with apps created on Win32. While we’d love for everything to be pixel perfect across all of our applications, Microsoft has established this as a standard for UWP.

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  6. set font-style when selecting all characters in text

    Before, I could change only selected characters font-style even if I selected all characters in the text object.

    So, I can design the calendar UI very easily. (please play the video)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCImsSCCHXc

    But it does not work as it is.
    The color of text objects in repeat grid was replaced by new one.

  8. Missing "Update Link"-button when re-opening a file

    Try to publish a prototype. Then do some changes to your deisgn, and publish again, using the "Update Link" button to just append your new stuff to the old prototype. All is good. Now exit XD . Restart XD and open your file. Try to publish. The "Update Link" button is gone! This is a serious bug as you are forced to create a new prototype whenever you restart XD!

  9. All text has moved up in text-boxes since update

    1. Adobe XD for MAC, version: 0.6.16.7 Beta
    2. Open any existing file and check the alignment of text next to graphical elements (I use manual sized textboxes with custom width and height)
    3. The update should not have changed the placement of text inside text-boxes.
    4. All text moved up about 2 or 3 dip visually breaking all alignment.
    5. See file attached for example

    Since the update to the new mac version of XD this problem is visible in every screen. All text has moved up a few pixels breaking all vertical alignment in every screen. Please release…

    Hi, all-

    So, I have good news and bad news for you. The good news is, you’re totally right, we did change our vertical font padding on Mac to improve our cross-compatibility with our Windows platform and ensure that we’re pixel perfect at all times. In better news, this is a one-time change we made in order to ensure that our product as a whole performs correctly. However, the bad news is that you’re going to have to fix your alignment by hand for this build only.

    We’re trying to make these changes as little as possible, as we know changes like this affect your work. Unfortunately, the alternative (people passing files back and forth between Mac and Windows and consistently blowing away each other’s alignment… or worse, thinking the other person is alignment-blind) was a worse option. Thanks for understanding, and we hope it wasn’t too much of an…

  10. Share online gets halfway, then stops

    When trying to create a link for a project it gets half way and then does nothing. I can continue to edit the file, so it's not crashing, but won't finish creating the link.

  12. Scaling a group of objects with responsive resize turned off does not work.

    Scaling a group of elements (text boxes and image) with the shift button held and responsive resize turned off does not work. The text boxes become misaligned and scale at different percentages after the group is made small and large again.

    Hello:

    After some discussion with the team, it looks like this is working as designed. I suggest working with responsive resize. It may not be the exact thing you’re looking for but I think it gets it enough of the way there.

    For more refined controls, I encourage you to file feature request post for the team to review.

    Apologies for any inconvenience.

    Thanks!

  13. Publishing Prototype does not upload all canvas

    When sharing a prototype xd does only uploads some (2 of 5 / 4 of 30) canvas.
    Updating the same project again does not help, saving it at a new location neither.

  16. Illustrator-generated SVGs wrapped in multiple unneeded container "groups"

    SVGs exported from Illustrator come into XD nested within multiple containers (shown as folder icons in the Layers panel), requiring a minimum of 4 clicks to access the vector shape itself (and see editable attributes in the property inspector). These containers are redundant / unnecessary.

    Don't know if this is an AI export issue or an XD import issue, but it makes it difficult/inefficient to work with imported SVGs. This does not happen with the exact same vector information copied and pasted from AI...only to SVG.

    The only way to make the object selectable with a single click for editing…

  17. Rounding corners option is gone (after converting to path)

    Box objects with rounded corners randomly have their option for how many pixels you want the corners to be rounded disappear. The corners stay rounded but if you scale the object the corners distort as if the box object was now a shape drawn with the pen tool.

  19. FontAwesome export on the Mobile Xd App (Android)

    I have been using the mobile Xd App, and I have to say, it's really useful to get the designs in their intended context.

    I am using our corporat font, and it's displaying nicely on the app.
    One font we're using here is FontAwesome, and these don't display on the (android) mobile Xd app.

  20. Multiselected objects across multiple artboards show global/canvas x, y instead of x, y position relative to artboard

    1. place multiple elements on an artboard, some are overflowing
    2. select all
    3. change the Y position in the numeric value field

    result:
    change actually occurs according to the number you entered, but the X and Y values are distorted
