    @david You are correct. Currently in XD, you can delete anchor points on a Path, but there's no way to delete a segment to change a closed Path to an unclosed Path.

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    You can do this with a slightly different workflow using the Subtract feature. Draw a Rectangle over the part of the Circle that you want to delete, select both shapes, and then Subtract. See gif:

    Or you can draw Rectangle over part of Circle that you want to keep and use Intersect.

    Is the what you are looking for?

    AdminRandy Edmunds (Software Engineer, Adobe) commented  · 

    You can accomplish that using the subtraction tool.

    In this gif, I start with 2 concentric ellipses. I subtract one from the other and set fill color to black. I then draw a triangle that I subtract from first element.

    Does that make sense?

    Use the up/down keyboard keys to increment/decrement by 1. Hold down Shift key with up/down keys to increment/decrement by 10.

    Here’s how it works currently:

    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid where all grid cells show the same image, the image will change in all the grid cells.
    • If you drag multiple images onto a Repeat Grid, you will set up a repeating sequence of different images. For example, if I drag in 5 images at the same time, the first 5 grid cells will show different images and then the pattern will repeat (e.g. every 5th grid cell will show the same image).
    • If you drag a single image onto a Repeat Grid that already has a repeating sequence of images, you’ll replace all copies of the image you dropped onto. For example, if you had a sequence of 5 images repeated 3 times (15 total grid cells), and then you drop a single image onto one grid cell, you’ll see 3 copies of that…

    > Change image only in single repeat grid item

    If you make the image a Symbol, then only the image in a single Repeat Grid cell is updated.

    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.

    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.
