  1. Multiple overlays and opaque background for overlay option

    I am trying to display a dialog box that has a popover for additional user info. When I set both of the screens to overlay, they fade out and fade in making an awkward experience. It would be great to allow multiple layers for overlays and the ability to add an opaque background to the overlay function too. See attached example.

    Good points Bryan, Sean. I think it’s always challenging to account for the myriad of use cases folks will employ.

    Some notes to help clarify:

    - When an artboard is set as an overlay, the fill is disabled. It can be re-enabled by selecting the check box in Design mode. An overlay can have an opaque background – either by using Fill or a background image.

    - When an overlay is dismissed, the transition used to display the overlay is played in reverse order. If you don’t want any transition, you can set transition to None on the overlay, and then no transition will be used when it is dismissed.

    Further enhancements are planned for this feature and will be available in a future release of XD.

    Thanks!

  2. Can't apply character/colour styles from assets when in list view

    XD v10.0.12.9
    CC Sync 3.0.3.6

    Since the update today I can't apply character or colour styles from my document assets when they're in list view. When they're in grid view, they apply as normal.

  3. XD pans while moving items on Magic Mouse

    I'm reopening this issue because in the last one, I wrote two issues, not just one, and it was removed because "What you’re describing is a workflow that is the case when using magic mouse. The workaround is unfortunately, not to use the mouse". I think that answer was for the second issue, not the first.

    To rephrase the issue: When I drag an item around the canvas (not necessarily to the edges of the window), I keep the LMB of my Magic Mouse down. But while moving the mouse, keeping the LMB pressed down, I probably rotate the tip…

  4. XD cannot copy vector graphics into Illustrator

    XD cannot copy vector graphics into Illustrator. Vector graphics designed in XD are copied and pasted into Illustrator and become bitmaps.

  6. Auto Animate control

    Auto animate can sometimes give itself extra work sometimes. The items that swap position have the same vertical position on both artboards, same name, same hierarchy on the layers panel, and the exact same writing inside yet want to swap position then change text when animating.

    I managed to solve the bug by randomly swapping the symbols in the layers panel on one of the artboards (So one art board has signup then no account whilst the other has no account then signup) but perhaps some tools to help the auto animate function similar to how PS has area mapping…

  7. Color assets gets deleted with no warning

    This may not be a bug, but it certainly is a weird behaviour.

    I often work with a lot of color assets. It could typically be all the colors from a clients brand guide.

    What bugs me is that if you happen to apply the same values to two color assets, just by chance, XD simply deletes one of the assets with no warning. This could have big consequences on the design and what you present to your client, as suddenly a specific brand color could be deleted and all objects with that color gets changed in the process.

    Please…

  8. Cannot share .XD file from Creative cloud.

    I have multiple .xd files loaded into the files area of creative cloud (not published prototypes but native file) the only option available is to delete the file. There is not means to share with another designer to continue working or collaborate. I can share PDFs PSD, and PNGs (even though the options are inconsistent) why can I not share an .XD file?

  9. Lack of collision detection in new responsive feature (Version 12.0.12.10)

    My text containers collide and overlap with images and other elements, so they overlap each other. This is not how the browser works because it should be done based on a grid. Is there a way around this? most of my designs would not be able to use this feature, or I just need to understand more how this feature works

    Hi @Daniel Vianna,

    Thank you for your feedback. XD 12.0 is the first release for Responsive Resize, but we do plan to enhance this feature in future releases.

    Currently, responsive resize is only supported on the design side in XD. We know collisions can occur in this release, but you may be able reduce/avoid them by grouping elements together. Otherwise a workaround for a collision would be to reposition the colliding elements manually after resizing.

    Stay tuned for further updates to Responsive Resize in future versions of XD.

    Best regards,
    Joe

  10. It's impossible to type a comment on web sharing mode from a smartphone

    When viewing the prototype on web from a smartphone the comment area and every other actions is hidden, but when I enter the "web version" on Google chrome, those actions are shown.
    I tried to reply to a comment and everything I typed vanished away, the space bar isn't functioning as well.
    I'm using the Google chrome browser on a Lenovo K5 smartphone

  11. Artboard width and height.

    Artboard width and height.
    The Artboard width and height has Physical width and height of mobile phones. Shouldn't be the resolution of the phone. While exporting the screens in png and viewing it in phones. The resolution is small. Because the physical size of the phone and resolution of the phone differs. Just a small thought

    If you add a color in the assets panel shared with a caracter style, then you modify the color, you loose the link between you text and the caracter style.

    Apologies for the delayed reply! Looks like the feedback I thought I left earlier did not get saved :(

    The video helps a lot! This is actually working as designed. The character style gets saved with the icon showing the original color. But editing will not update to new color of the text icon. The color value does change as you note.

    I’ve passed on your feedback to the team for review.

    Thanks!
    Nina

  13. Style & Color List View Edits

    When you are viewing your assets in list view, clicking on an asset while selecting a similar object on the artboard won't update. You need to go back to grid view to then click the asset and update it.

  15. overlay bug

    When I stack content with the new overlay feature, I can't drag the overlay item to where I want it to be. Also when I select the "Overlay" option, the background becomes grey (see in video attached).

    1. Adobe XD Version: 9.1.12.3
    2. Steps to reproduce: In Prototype mode select an item and drag the wire to select an overlay element. Then try to move to where you want it to appear on the first artboard.
    3. Expected result: I move the element to where I want it to appear.
    4. Actual result: I can't move the overlay item on…

  16. Design specs with fixed elements

    With the June 2018 release of XD featuring fixed elements, when an element was a footer with content scollable beneath it, in the design spec, the footer obscures anything behind it, while scrolling is not enabled in the design spec.

    Maybe the fixed elements should appear in another layer in the design spec that can be toggled on/off?

  17. We can add a feature to keep Layer "Always on the Top".

    Brilliant work on introducing Fixed Position feature. Thank you for it.

    There should be a feature to set layers "Always on the top". Because when I was working on the website design, I kept header on fixed position and whenever I used to add a new element in XD; it by default creates a layer on top of all the layers.(even above header layer). means I have to manually bring my Header layer again on top. It is kind of troublesome for a people like me who keeps checking Preview mode.

    So we can have an option to set certain…

  18. problem with embedded prototypes in Behance iOS app

    This is sort of half bug/ half feature request. When viewing embedded prototypes via the Behance iOS app, "previous artboard" links don't work.

  19. Design specs do not include all screens in my document

    I have a large prototype with about 60 screens. When I try to publish a design spec for this, it only includes the first few screens I had in this document, but not the latest ones i've added. I have even copied them all into a new doc, but that doesn't help.
