This is insane. I am working on several projects and everytime I start to type in the text box (any text box) I have to use ALT + TAB to type anything. I am so frustrated over this I am going to have to switch all my projects over to Figma and lose some of my XD capabilities but I won't have this workflow issue every time I try to type.
This is insane that Adobe can't push a fix to this well documented problem. I am very frustrated and discouraged.
This happens when I save documents to the cloud or locally on my machine.
I am using Adobe XD Version: 184.108.40.206, Creative Cloud Sync 220.127.116.11
This happens regardless of the font or font size though I haven't tried all my fonts, I am using mostly Roboto or Circular Std.
This happens on new projects and existing projects about 70% of the time. When I select the text box, or draw a new one, then try to type, sometimes a few letters will appear then the system freezes or after I select the text box, I won't be able to type into it without switching focus (ALT + TAB).
I use 3 extermal monitors and all graphic cards are up to date.

Okay, so I feel like an idiot. I may have figured out why some people, and not everybody, is having this issue. After taking a few deep breaths and looking at this situation more, I realized that this happens when I don't rename the text box element before trying to edit it. I'm an idiot.

So, if you have this issue, I suggest naming the element a unique name, then typing into the textbox as you are supposed to do. Otherwise, after multiple instances of the same element are created in your document, when you try to change the text, but the name is the same, the system lags and locks up which is only resolved after unfocusing on the the element and returning.
