Hi there!

 

Recently (within the last month or two) as I'm working in Xd, my keyboard will very frequently stop accepting inputs.

 

This happened very rarely in the past and I found an old fix on this site (I can't find the post) where if I push the Windows key twice, it Xd accepts keyboard inputs again, but now it's happening all the time! Like every 3-5 minutes. It seems to happen most when I exit editing a Text component, or do something in Xd then click to another window to do something and come back (sometimes I go into my web browser for something, sometimes I'm dragging an image into Xd, sometimes I'm copy/pasting text from another file).

 

When it happens, they keyboard does nothing at all. I can't edit text, I can't edit any values in the "Tranform" box, I can't use shortcuts to change my tool to "Text (T)" or "Select (V)" or "Ellipse (E)", etc.

 

I can tell it's Xd specific because any other program my keyboard works just fine. I'm unsure what triggers the bug.

 

I'm on ...

Adobe Xd v 44.0.12

Windows 10 Enterprise version 10.0.18363 build 18363

 

What else would you need to know to help figure out this bug?

 

Thank you!
Jason

Whoops! I am on 44.1.12 and have been this whole time. I didn't notice that typo in my original post. Sorry. 😃

 

So yes it's happening on the latest version (I just checked again to ensure I have the latest version)
