For some reason, XD will just stop letting me edit text. I will double-click into a text box, but it won't let me edit the text at all. When this happens, my only option is to close out and restart the document.
This is happening much more frequently with the latest update. Yesterday alone, I think I had this "mini-crash" 6 times in about 4 hours.
Very frustrating to say the least.
I am on a Windows machine, standard installation, no plugins.
Sorry to hear about the trouble. Could you please share a few more details like:
It's been a known bug/issue for a long time. Not sure if they think it's fixed, or just don't consider it a priority, but the same problem keeps popping up every other day from various users.
The "fix" for now is Alt+Tab. When you switch back to Xd it starts working again.
This thread discusses the same issue:
It happens on any file.
Sometimes it doesn't happen at all on a file with many layers / components.
Sometimes it happens on a new file, 5 seconds after creating it, with no layers and 1 artboard.
I would say it's unpredictable, or at least I haven't managed to see a pattern or what's causing it.
It's been happening for at least a year or two, and I update all my graphics drivers / windows / Xd whenever there's an update.
Thank you for the Alt-Tab option -- I will try that next time.
BTW, I have it on two different laptops and it happens on both, very inconsistently. All drivers are all updated.
