Adobe XD 37.1.32.2 on Windows 10 will stop allowing me to edit text objects and fields

I'm working on a cloud document with some coworkers. While working with them, or on my own XD will repeatedly decide that it doesn't feel like letting me edit text boxes.

 

It appears that this occurs exclusively with text boxes, both within the editor and in the options panel on the right.

 

In order to "wake" XD up, I can sometimes click on a different layer, then be able to edit the text. This is inconsistent though.

 

I've recorded a video showing the issue that I can share privately with the Adobe team.

This is a known problem by a long time now. When this happens, press ALT + TAB to change your main window and go back do XD.

Thanks FrancoBits. That is the workaround.

 

Hopefully that bug gets resolved within the next few months. It's a small thing, but really breaks the flow given how often it happens in my case.
