    This is a very weird bug Adobe has probably inadvertently produced. The peculiarity of the bug is that it has a work-around that leads one to the create their target grid. And I believe what Tom and others are facing here is exactly what I'm about to explain below.

    Example Scenario: Creating a 12-column Bootstrap Grid —
    Artboard Size: 1366px x 768px
    Number of Columns: 12
    Gutter Width: 30px
    Column Width: 70px
    Margins (Equal on Left and Right): (1366-1170)/2 = 196/2 = 98px

    Here's how to reproduce this issue:
    When I define a new 1366 x 768 Web Artboard and select the Grid checkbox with Dropdown set to Layout, the default grid is set to the following values:
    No. of Columns: 12
    Gutter Width: 16px
    Column Width: 76px
    Margins (Equal on Left and Right): 139px

    The problem arises when I define number of columns, set gutter width and then set column width in the exact order.

    As I set the number of columns to 12 and gutter width to 30px aiming for the above example scenario, XD italicises the column width value and sets it to disabled colours implying that this value would be auto-calculated, which it set to 63px in this case on losing focus, adjusting the margin a little accordingly to 140px.

    Here's what the current set of values looks like:
    No. of Columns: 12
    Gutter Width: 30px
    Column Width: 63px (auto-calculated and italicised)
    Margins (Equal on Left and Right): 140px

    Hereon, if I go ahead and override the value of Column Width to 70px, ideally since I've manually set the number of columns and gutter width before, XD should update the Left and Right Margins respectively to 98px. But what XD does instead is it re-adjusts the Gutter Width to a keep the margins either the same, or at worst adjust them by the least possible amount.

    Here's what the values look like after overriding the Column Width:
    No. of Columns: 12
    Gutter Width: 22px (now auto-recalculated and italicised)
    Column Width: 70px
    Margins (Equal on Left and Right): 142px (This should have ideally got updated to 98px instead of Gutter Width getting recalculated)

    Here's what I do to work around this bug:
    If I set the No. of Columns first followed by Gutter Width, and skip Column Width to directly set Margins, the grids work fine and I am able to define whatever grid I want to.

    Here's the order of precedence in which the grid works properly:
    No. of Columns: 12 <------------------------(1)
    Gutter Width: 30px <------------------------(2)
    Column Width: 70px <------------------------(Skip this. This will get auto-populated when you set margins)
    Margins (Equal on Left and Right): 98px <---(3)

    So technically this is supposed to be a bug if the grid doesn't get calculated appropriately one way, but does so when done the other way around for the same set of values.

    The best possible solution to this problem should be to let the user define the number of columns and any two of the remaining values and auto-calculate the third value for the user.

    Dear team, has this bug fix even made it to the backlog yet? Fixing this is so important! I don't know how to explain to the developers what my design would look like when live because the line height specified and rendered in my design completely differs from the line height that they have to use when they are implementing it.

    Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.

    In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.

    If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”

    -Elaine
