Hi Yannis, We are sorry to hear you are having trouble editing text in XD. We had this issue in past and it got fixed by updating the operating system. Would you mind checking the latest update to your operating system and let us know if that helps? If not, please share a short video of the workflow for better understanding. We will try our best to help. Thanks, Harshika

Are you able to open older files and see and maybe edit any textual elements in them ?

Actually, I have a new laptop, and I am using Adobe XD for 2-3 weeks in this laptop.
However, I have a one file which is edited in the old laptop(macbook). I saved in the cloud. I can get this file, but the same problem applies for this.

I selected Text and started typing, but I haven't seen any characters over the text area. For this silly reason, I have been using other tools but unfortunately, even I come back after half-year these issues are still there.

I have just added a comment on this, I believe it is the same issue as you are having. Hope someone would pay attention to this. (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs-read-only/suggestions/37764643-frequently-...)

 

Comment 

This is a huge performance problem. I am not sure what is causing it, I have tried turning of Spellcheck as somebody mentioned, it didn't help.


I have a lot of components in my file, necessary for my project, I guess that could be the issue.
Another thing I suppose could impact this, is autosaving versions that have been released recently (I was searching for a way to setup autosaving time, it is too frequent since it does seem to impact performance).

 

Text that freezes is not only text I add to my designs but also entering dimensions, changing HEX values, renaming my components, basically, anything that you can type in Adobe XD.

 

I found a workaround that usually helps, but it is frustrating and takes a long time when it happens after every third action (as someone already mentioned). Minimizing and maximizing the window helps to unfreeze.

Please acknowledge this issue, it is a HUGE and frustrating problem since it takes three times more time to do anything.

I have just tried that, uninstalled and installed again. 

The problem is still there. 

For example, I am typing something in my artboard, and then I click away, it is still in edit mode, text is selected, but if I start writing again, it is not responding. Then I try to zoom in/out, it is frozen. 

Then I minimize the window and maximize it again, the text is deselected (as I mentioned above, I expected that on click away and it is working after minimizing/maximizing window), and I can zoom in/out normally. 

As I wrote in other topic, it happens on anything that involves typing - from text on my designs, to dimensions, renaming components, layers etc.

I've been receiving Error 2143 and closing my cloud document after trying the co-editing function. 
I've installed V24.4.22 and now the text tool is not working, unable to highlight text to edit or start a new textbox. 

Move work to a new file is not an option for me as I need the same prototyping link!

Been having this problem persistently. I have to shut my document several times while co editing.

Never before did XD asked to shutdown document. I have to ask others to shut it and this has been affecting work in a great way. Please help debugging this.

Which version and system is this?

Does that happen with all documents or just some?

Does that happen with all fonts?

Did it ever work?

Do you use font management?

Have you checked all fonts for corruption?

 

You have already restarted the computer?
