Thanks for your bug report. I have filed a bug internally and we are investigating a fix.
After updating recently to version 14.0.42, a white canvas has now appeared between my symbols' artwork and the checkered background in my CC Library in XD.
This white canvas blends with my white icon collection and has made it completely invisible (see attached image).
In previous versions of XD, it was already really hard to see my white icons because they were shown on a checkered background, which creates artifacts that make white artwork maddening hard to see.
CC Libraries have become increasingly harder for me to manage from XD:
-First, it was the issue of not seeing my symbols names (I could wait for tooltip but it is painful when dealing with a large number of symbols many times a day), then
-The the lack of filter controls which could help me guess where to find an icon I am looking for since I can't easily see the names nor the artwork of my symbols, and then
-The maddening checkered background, then
-The inability to import symbols that have nested symbols (this was removed from XD but works in other Adobe products), and
-Now a white canvas that makes my white icons completely invisible (see attached image).
I have to navigate a collection of unnamed, mutilated artwork (can't have nested symbols in XD) that looks like white tiles and are organized by time stamps. This is an unusable collection of symbols to me.
Hello Elaine. Thanks for the video. However, that is not what I meant to say.
The feature I am talking about allows the user to change an entire font in a document, regardless of how many components are in the document.
For instance, if I have:
1000 button labels using Helvetica Neue Light at 20pt
400 text strings using Helvetica Neue Light at 12pt,
100 text strings using Helvetica Neue BOLD at 10pt , and
50 text paragraphs using Helvetica Neue Light at 8pt
And now lets say that I decide to change my font to Roboto Condensed Light for all the assets with light font but not the ones with bold font. Based on your recommendation, it would take me a whole day to do this task because I would have to hunt the assets and change the font 1450 times.
Another scenario would be that I opened my XD file in a computer that does not have Helvetica Neue Light. XD would tell me that the font is missing and if I have another font in that computer that I would like to replace it with, I would have to go at it 1450 times to replace the font in all the assets I mentioned before.
In Illustrator, we can just open the Find Font dialog and change all 1450 assets to another font with like 6 clicks, and it would take about 10 seconds to happen. These 1450 assets also would keep their particular customization details like size, tracking and leading because Find Font only changes the font, not the size or other details.
