I just installed Adobe XD and when I start it it's not maximized. I maximized it and then reopened it but still the same thing. It again goes to half on the screen.
You're on Windows, right? Sadly XD doesn't remember that you want it maximized, but you can resize the window to make it large, then close the window and new windows from then on should use that new window size. You can't use the maximize feature though, it won't remember that 😞
No, that's not working, the app start on the previous size, but then automatically resize itself to a tiny window in the home screen. so it add an extra step for each app start.
So after one year and this annoying issue not fixed?
That's not what happens in my case. When I resize the XD window manually, Windows won't remember it at all at startup. But when I maximize it, XD remembers it for about 1 second, however, after that, it refreshes the window size back to your standard size.
I'm 99% sure, that you override the Windows window size on startup! Please don't do that!
If this is super annoying to you, I have made a small autohotkey script that fix this problem till Adobe releases a proper fix.
#Persistent SetTimer, MaximizeAdobeXD, 10 return MaximizeAdobeXD: if WinExist("Adobe XD") WinGet, win_minmax, MinMax, Adobe XD if win_minmax = 0 WinMaximize, Adobe XD return
This automatically maximize the Adobe XD window so you don't have to do it every time you launch the app.
