The latest (Nov 5th 19) release of Xd has automatically re-ordered my full components list (which was manually grouped into types for ease of use) of about 200 components.

This keeps happening - I haven't even closed the file but they keep resetting to be oldest > newest.

 

This needs fixed ASAP, it not easily usable.

Hi Nj-a,

 

Sorry that you're having trouble with components arrangement. I understand that it could be frustrating. We'll try our best to help you out with this. 

 

I'd like to know if this happens with a specific file or you see this behavior with all the files. I'd also request you to share the screenshot/GIF or a short video so that we may have a better understanding about your issue. 

 

Awaiting your response. 

 

Thanks,

Atul_Saini

Hi, I've been struggling to pinpoint what causes this, but have found a possible trigger (although, it's happened in another doc that I'm not doing these steps in).

 

When I've deleted components (linked) it's triggered my existing ones to be re-ordered. I've got a video but I don't know how to add it here - UserVoice was a much better forum for bug reporting.

It doesn't appear to be limited to deleting components either... It's just repeated the process again when I've pasted a layer onto an artboard.

You will see improvements to inserting videos soon, but in the meanwhile, the best way to do that is to upload your video to Youtube and use the Share Video link to share the video here.

I posted this already but you can't post videos in replies (wow), so I'm posting it again.

 

My components are being randomly reordered/shuffled about as I'm working in my file. 

 

I group my components by type and this is slowing down my workflow so much, I can't find the things I need when I need them.

 

The video shows this being triggered when I deleted a component, but it's happened at other random times too.

This is actually not limited to components - I've just added a new character style & named it (none of my others are named) and now my character styles are all out of order too.

 

This is SO frustrating.

Hi, please can someone acknowledge this is a bug?

 

It's also triggered by just adding a new component.

Atul,

 

Please respond. This issue makes Adobe XD quite difficult to use. We are using it in a professional environment, and this is affecting our work schedule.

 

What is Adobe's stance on this?

 

Thank you,

Aaron

I have the exact same problem.
Components reorders in both my Master file and any file where I link my assets. 

(Don't really understand why you need video of this)

Hi All,

 

I have a recurring bug/issue with XD. My Colors, Character Styles, & Components are constantly reordered when I reopen my files. Is this a known issue, or is there a solution?

 

Thank you,

Aaron

Hi Aaron, 

 

We are sorry to hear you are facing trouble using Adobe XD. It would be really helpful if you can share a few more details like-

 

  • What is the OS & XD version of your machine?
  • Is it happening with all the files or with a specific file?
  • Could you please share a short video of the workflow so that we can understand better?

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

My Adobe XD software is up to date: XD (24.4.22)

 

Some More Information:

 

I have two files: (1) a design system, and (2) a linked file that uses that design system. 

 

Today, to track the bug, I carefully ordered my components within (1) design system. I deleted a component, then I pressed CTRL+Z to undo that delete. When I did so, the components were suddenly out of order.

 

For me, this does not happen with Character Styles or Colors - only Components.

As Aaron has said, it's still an issue.

 

Components just order themselves from earliest created (bottom) to newest (top). Any time there is an interaction/itteration/amendment/addition to any component, the list is reset.

 

Working with components is a fundamental part of Xd, if they don't work the way you need them to, and you can't group them or use folders etc, it's virtually impossible to have a speedy workflow.

I'm using version 42.4.22.1 and this my components are getting reordered. I'm not seeing the same issue with colors or type.

I'm using OS X 10.15.1

This is happening on all files.

I can't show you a video because I don't know what triggers the reordering of the components.

Here is a before and after. I ordered the components. Then I dragged a component on to an artboard, undid the change (command + z) and the conponenets were reordered.

Not sure why Adobe keeps marking these "answers" as correct, they're not resolutions!

XD version: 24.4.22.1

OS: Windows 10

 

I'm having all kinds of problems with XD ordering.

 

Components

Whenever I reorder my components to my liking and then add another component, all my components are being reordered back to a different order (always the same though). The strange thing is that it only happens when I'm not looking (when components panel is not visible).

 

Fortunately, when I was recording, there was a lag after a new component addition so you can see exactly the moment when the order goes back to the original one. (see attached "components-order.mp4")

 

Artboards

In my file, I have artboards that are "headers" for artboards containing components (e.g "FORMS" artboard for form controls). I'm using uppercase names for those artboards to make them also work as dividers for the artboard "sections".

 

This made me notice something that I've never notice before. Artboards order also changes from time to time. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find exactly when this happens but it seems that simple closing and opening file is enough to encounter this issue. (see attached "before-after.jpg")

 

Layers

This one is especially annoying because after the introduction of states, clicking Update all button in linked files is like dropping a bomb on your design - components position change, overwritten properties go to master defaults, links getting broken... And now this:

 

Whenever I want to edit Master layer from the child component, Master is moved to the top of the layer stack. (see attached "master-component-order.mp4")

 

Thanks in advance for all the help.

Hi Lukasz_Palubicki,

 

We understand it could be frustrating. We have seen a similar issue has been reported on this post: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/components-are-getting-out-of-order-in-adobe-xd/m-p/10793541... . You may see the improvements in the future releases of XD.

 

I am merging this thread with the same post.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi Community and developers,

Firstly, i would like to tell you that i'm French, so i will do my best to be understandable 😉

I don't really understand if the developper team watch the forum but i try to see 😛

 

I'm currently trying to create a CheatSheet in XD (as Material design or Bootstrap have their own) just to try to improve my skills, maybe in the future to try to adapt it is a complete CSS/JS Framework or i don't know ... 

 

Because i'm really psychorigid, i'm trying to rename each component I create and organize them to a logical order. But, by doing that i have one problem :

I didn't found exactly which way make me that happend but, sometime, the components in the component list reset the sorting i just made (the more often when I restart AdobeXD). And because i would like to have a really clean workspace, i'm very annoyed of that ... I already remade the order 3 or 4 times, but now that I have many components, i don't want to do it again ...

(Little tip: it seems that the order in which AdobeXD remake my list is the creation time order)

 

Is that a bug or it is just that I don't know how to proceed ?

 

BTW : Now i'm here, i should be really AWESOME if adobeXD's team could implement a directory system for components !

 

Thank you by advance if you read my message i really love this software and I would like to do more with this 😉

Hi there,

 

Welcome to the Adobe XD community!

 

Thank you for using Adobe XD out and sharing your feedback. If i heard you right, you are talking about the components in the asset panel that are going out of order. If yes, we have a similar discussion going on here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/components-are-getting-out-of-order-in-adobe-xd/m-p/10793541 and the team is aware of the issue and is working on it to fix it. You may see the improvements in the future releases of XD.

 

We apologize for the inconvenience. 

 

Thanks,

Harshika

This is my component template. The sorting is orderly

 

946064EBE160D357302035517DB0DC01.jpg

But I import the component into the project. It's unordered.

 

It bothers me. I have obsessive-compulsive disorder.

How to solve this problem.
