The layout grid worked like absolute crap since it was first implemented in XD. Can you guys please, after so many years, fix it? It's really not rocket science, right now it works only accidentally, you literally cannot make it work intentionally, it's simply a feature that CANNOT BE USED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi There,

 

Thanks for reaching out and sorry to hear that you're having trouble in using layout grid in XD. Basically layout grid  is used to measure quickly and align your design content while laying out objects or text on your artboards. please find the below article to know more about layout grids:https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/work-with-guides-and-grids-in-adobe-xd.html#position-grids 

https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/get-started-with-artboards-in-XD.html

 

Also I'd request  few more details to analyse your Issue thoroughly.

  1. The version of XD.
  2. The version of Mac or Win  which you are using.
  3. If it is happening with a specific file or multiple files, will it be possible for you to share the file with us?
  4. Is it possible to share a video of your workflow which you are working on so it will be useful to clearly reproduce the issue from our end. so please share the above mentioned  details.

 

Please let us know if you need more assistance on this. We'd be happy to help.

 

Thanks,

Chethan G

Hi Chethan,

I'm using the latest XD version, on Windows 10.

It's weird, it seems to be working now...

I think it's because I just opened the file, but if I work on a file for a couple of hours, and then try to play with the layout grid, it starts acting crazy. I'll make a video next time it happens, I tried it right now, but it works fine now.

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Chethan,

It's happening again, even in a new file 🙂 I attached a video showing the amount of trouble we have to go throuhg to create a simple layout grid. Ultimatelly it does work, but it's pure luck. I made a videl  but it's 356MB large, and the maximum size seems to be 47 MB. How can I show this to you?

I'm on Windows 10, XD 45.1.62.3

Thanks,

Chris
