    Unfortunately, Adobe XD does not yet support right-to-left text languages.

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    Can you send me (redmunds at adobe dot com) a small, sample .xd file that illustrates this problem?

    Thanks,
    Randy

    This bug has been fixed and should be in the next public release.

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    We plan to have Repeat Grids automatically handle this, but until then you can manually fix it.

    Cmd-click on Mac (or Ctrl-click on Windows) or double-click (may need to do this more than once) to select item with shadow. Then move it down and/or right.

    Hope this helps,
    Randy

    The name of the items needs to be the same on both Artboards. Next switch to Prototype mode and setup the Auto-animate interactions. Then switch back to Design mode and move the item off the Artboard.

    After selecting a layer in the Layers panel, you can then use the left/right/up/down keys to move it even if it's covered by another layer. Hold down the Shift for accelerated movement.

    Thanks for sending in Feature Requests. For now, you can give a Path a Fill color and then set Opacity to 0% to achieve this.

    HTH,
    Randy

    Thanks. We'll take a look at this when 1809 is supported.

    Also note that you can hold down Shift key to temporarily disable Responsive Resize, which might save you some time.

    Make sure the Fill is enabled, otherwise you'll need to select shape by it's border. By default, the Fill is off for Path objects. Hope this helps.

    For now, this effect can be achieved in XD using layers and changing opacity value.

    @Kenneth Can you explain why this distinction makes a difference? I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve. Please provide an example of how you would like to use this.

    Can't you just increase the width of the Area Text element?

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    There are 2 types of Text objects in Adobe XD: Point Text and Area Text.

    Using the Text Tool, if you click in canvas, you'll get a Point Text object. If you click and drag a rectangle, you'll get an Area Text object.

    See this gif: https://imgur.com/a/9raYAj7

    You can convert back and forth using the PI controls.

    Point Text is a single line of non-wrapping text (unless you insert a linefeed). Area Text will wrap text to fit width of rectangle.

    That feature should work on both Mac and Windows. Can you provide an example where it's not working for you?

    The color fade in that example is done using opacity. Put layers on top of each other and change the opacity of top layer from 100% to 0% so color of top layer fades out and color of bottom layer fades in.

    @Cam, after using XD to create intricate patterns like that, I think it's best to Export to a PNG and use the image instead.

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    FYI, gradients are already supported Fills. Use dropdown at top of color picker to change from "Solid Color" to "Linear Gradient" or "Radial Gradient".

    Yes, we'd like to make patterns easier. For now, you can create pattern using a Repeat Grid and then mask it using a Masked Object.

    This is due to the new Responsive Resize feature not (yet) being smart about vector artwork. In following gif, I show you how to turn off Responsive Resize for this element:

    Make sure that the Masked Group containing object is selected, not the mask/Path.

    Based on sample sent to me directly (since there doesn't seem to be a way to attach samples here), this seems to be working as designed, so I changed this to be a Feature Request. Here's a summary of my offline response:

    "Groups in XD don’t have X, Y, Width, or Height properties. They are simply the result of grouping together all of their children.

    "The elements that dictate the X and Y cases are both Path objects, and the top-most and left-most points are curves between anchor points. 'Align to Pixel Grid' on a Path object causes all of the anchor points to align to pixel grid, but not the overall Path object."

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    Can you provide an example? If you can't figure out how to explain it here you can send me a sample XD doc to redmunds at adobe dot com.

    Thanks for the feedback. For now, you can select the element in Layers Panel.

    Starting in XD 9 (I think), you can now double-click on image fill to edit size and position. Subsequently resizing shape resizes fill proportionally, not quite "background-size:contain", but it will maintain centered images.

    XD enforces selection to be either artwork ("target items inside artboard") or artboards. Selection can never have a mix of artwork and artboards.

    When you start a shift-drag (i.e. "marquee") selection, initially artwork is selected. After 1 entire artboard is selected, then the selection switches to artboards when the second artboard is hit.

    Does that help?

    One way to cause that to happen is by selecting multiple objects and re-scaling them. See this gif: https://imgur.com/a/JLqOYK7

    Fix is to use Align to Pixel grid.
