Dear XD users
Have been struggling with XD so much lately. I have created a few prototypes to go to testing and after testing them myself to test the wires, it was all good. Once I saw the user videos, loads of the wires were not working. I checked the file and all the wires were there as they should. Now this is happening to me as well and is causing my work to be extended by loads of hours or get unexpected results from testing workshops.
1. Why is this happening?
2. Is there a way to fix it?
3. Is XD just not that good?
Please let mew know asap.
We're so sorry to hear about the trouble. Please share a few more details like:
So it's I have the latest version of XD.
The rest I can not share as the is no point to do that. The problem is inconsistent so it doesn't always happen.
I will share the prototype in DM though.
If you generate an entirely different prototype link from the same file, are the links working, or the same links are broken as the initial prototype? This experiment would indicate if it's a problem with the generation process, or with the file itself.
Is there something in common between the broken links? Overlays, auto-animate, are they between components? A sample with a file and a broken prototype made from that file will go a long way for us to try and find the issue.
Yeah it happens again even with new links. It usually tends to happen on the overleys, so once I create a fake typing journey with a keyboard overly, it opens the keyboard but then doesn't go to the next screen. By saying that it's not only there, it happens with other random. actions like push left etc. As I said, it's very inconsistent so I am not sure how to describe this.
I can't even record a screen because it doesn't always happen so it would take me hours to capture it.
I know this doesn't help explain it much but I hope anything like this stops happening. It's meesing up a lot of work and adds extra work hours that should go elsewhere.
