Adobe XD Issues With Text Input

Hi,

For some reason I do not know, when I am typing text on my designs, the text input stops and nothing I do will solve this until I restart the app or close and re-open the file.

 

Sometimes this happens when I use certain plugins like the Auto Icons plugin. After I search for the icon that I need and add it to my work, when I try to type in text on any artboard using the text tool it will not work. The text will keep entering the icons search bar but will not type on the artboards. This is really time-wasting and frustrating.

 

My computer OS: Windows 11 Home

21H2,

Build: 22000.282

Computer:

Acer Aspire 5 with 16GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD, AMD Ryzen 3 32000U with Radeon Vega MObile Gfx 2.60Hz.

XD: v. 45.0.62

Adobe CC version: 5.6.0.788

 

Looking forward to your help.

Hi Anaturuchi, the issue has been present for a few years now. It's only happening on Windows 10, and apparently 11 as well. The current temporary fix is to Alt+Tab to another window and come back to Xd.

 

Adobe's official stance so far has been that it's a Windows issue, and they are waiting for Microsoft to fix it. There's no ETA or any sort of clarity on when this may happen, so we'll have to live with it for the forseeable future 🙂

Ok Spas,

 

Thanks a lot for this tip. It works. At least it is better than being stuck totally.

 

Best regards.

@THE-KAL It's probably because the effort required to fix it is much greater than the potential benefits for Adobe. In other words - they are not losing enough users because of this to make it a top priority.
