Sorry this is probably a stupid question, but I imported an AI document into XD with plenty of layers, but now I can NOT reaarange the layers or move elements into new groups. 

 

So I have a group of componentns or a single element and cant move them around in the layers view on the left. 

 

Any thoughts how this can be solved? Thanks in advance for the support.

Hi there,

 

We're so sorry to hear about the troubles. Please share a few more details like:

 

  1. The version of XD and OS.
  2. Is this happening on a specific file or multiple files?
  3. There are certain unsupported features while importing AI files, for more information, please refer to this article https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/open-illustrator-files-in-xd.html

 

Regards

Rishabh

1. XD latest version (42.1.22.4..) and OS MAC OS (11.4) it also happens on Windows.

2. Only this specific file I imported its an AI file I got from a designer

3. I got it but I should still be able to just "rearrange" the layers and move them up, down and in different groups, should I not?

 

Kr,

Stefan

When I copy one group into a "normal/old" document, I can rearrange the elements in that group again. So I was assuming it has to do with the general document setup or something similar.

Could it have something to do with that element (see attached picture).

Thanks for sharing additional details and sorry for the delay in response. Will it be possible for you to share the XD file with us? If yes, please add the file to a shared location like Google Drive or DropBox and share the link with me through DM by clicking on my name.
