Hi Chinmay,
what font are you using for this project? Does this problem also occur with other fonts? Also, have you encountered the same problem on other files as well?

Hi Giavitulano,

After updating the latest verison on adobe XD we har facing this issue I had word with Adobe agent today but not get any solution for this issue, actually what is happening if MAC user created the file and shared with windows user so windows user are seeing a different padding as well some of the design elements also misaligned, If windows user trying to fix that it will be chenged for MAC user and if MAC user try to make it fix same will happen for windows user and because of this it very difficult for us to collabrate with each other using XD online.

Even my entire team is facing the same issue with the padding and spacing. Some of my colleagues use Mac and some Windows. When both types of users are on the same XD file, we see the spacing between two elements is different by 3px (-3px for windows users +3 for Mac users).

Please help.

Hello, is there any update for this issue please?

I'm also facing the same problem, but not between windows and mac platform, but between macbook air M1 and macbook pro M1... each macbook shows different padding and spaces dont fit well too. 

When I create design like button with Mackbook AIR, my coworker with Macbook PRO sees diferent size and diferent padding.

It's really painful and we can't work like that.

I am still facing this same problem. Padding is inconsistent in the whole document. I faced this even when everyone in my team was working on Windows. Please suggest a fix.

 

Thanks.

Hi @defaultawlv43brzf38,

 

We are aware of how annoying it could be. This is unquestionably a problem. However, the team identified that the font engines on the 2 platforms return different values for this font, and it won't be fixed until we use the same engine on both platforms.

 

We are sorry for the frustration. We'll pass on the feedback to the team.

 

Thanks,

Harshika
