Hello,

 

Until this last update, I could drag and drop images from any source - for example, straight from Google Chrome (unsplash.com). This feature seems to have been broken in the latest update. I can only drop images into masks if they are stored on my harddrive.

 

MacOS 11.6 (20G165)

Adobe XD 44.0.12.7 x64, Creative Cloud Sync 4.21.1.1d

Looked into this further. Unsplash has switched their images on their site to .AVIF format (until you download them in JPG format). The only way to get an image I can drop into XD is to use the "Download" button and then retrieve it from my Downloads. The process is much slower, but not Adobe's fault.

I can drag and drop from other websites. I should have checked that first. I only use Unsplash for my XD images, so I didn't think to do that. I guess Unsplash has done something to limit this behavior. Saving and then dragging to XD is so much less effecient. Oh well, it was good while it lasted, I guess. 😄

 

Thanks for the help.
