Hi,

 

We seem to be getting an issue when opening the same design file in a Mac vs Windows systems. In the screenshots below, you can see that viewing the designs on a Windows system that fonts are capitalised and much larger in font size. Asset alignments have also changed. The design, as it is showing for the Mac, is correct.

 

XF File opened in Mac OS: https://prnt.sc/126vtlv 

XD File opened in Windows PC: https://prnt.sc/126vscu

 

Font: Gotham

Style: Book

Font Size: 18px

 

Both PC and Mac are on the latest version 39.0.12

 

Any ideas what might be causing the difference?

 

Thank you for your help in advance.

First you need to check that the font you are using is the same on both machines (same files from the same source).
There are issues with different font rendering in Windows vs Mac and according to Adobe my issue can't be fixed https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/roboto-font-from-google-has-different-heights-on-mac-vs-pc/t...

Hi Monterxz,

 

Font is the same in both cases in both machines.

 

Have you been able to find a workaround to this? This is causing quite a bit of an issue with our team as different departments viewing the design use both Mac and Windows so there's a quite huge discrepancy and uncertainty for us.

In my case there were differences only when font size was set to 14 - I've found out that making it 13.999 looks the same on both Windows and Mac. In your case this workaround won't help. You can only try and experiment with the same font but downloaded from a different source or use a different font completely.

Here is the Adobe's reply https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/roboto-font-from-google-has-different-heights-on-mac-vs-pc/m... (in short: We found an issue on our side, but there is no way to fix it).
