Hi,

On my Macbook pro with an Intuos Wacom tablet, just after i'm using the hand tool (holding the spacebar and drag the artboard) XD make a zoom in the artboard !

I have to unplug and replug the hub USB to correct the problem.

I'm on Catalina 10.15.3 with the lastest version of Adobe XD.

Hi there, Sorry to hear about the trouble. I would request if you can share a few more details like: Are you using a Stylus with the Wacom Tablet? Please check if the Wacom drivers are up to date? Does this happen on a specific file or multiple files? If this is happening on multiple files, you can try resetting the preferences for Wacom Tablet. Please follow the steps shared on this help article: https://www.wacom.com/en-in/support?guideTitle=How-to-delete-Wacom-User-Preferences%3F&guideId=001-672...

This is my first time using XD. I just updated it this morning, and am working off of Windows 10. Unfortunately, the program is unable to let me pan around at all. The tutorial says to use the trackpad, or to use the space bar to activate the hand tool. Neither of these work for me. The trackpad is doing nothing, and when I hold the space bar, it shows the hand symbol, but does not let me move around whatsoever. Does anyone know of a fix to this? I have already tried numerous routes suggested in other Q&A's but the problem still persists.

I tried, and both things work. If you have trackpad you need to use two fingers to get the pan to work (and don't press the trackpad's button, just move your two fingers across it). You can also zoom by pinching with two fingers.

For the spacebar approach you need to hold down the spacebar, not just tap it once. Also make sure that you're not editing text at the time, otherwise the space characters will go into the text field.

Thank you! The two finger approach works for the trackpad. Unfortunately, holding down the spacebar is what I have been doing, and that doesn't work still. Being as the spacebar technique is my preferred method of scrolling, I am hoping there is a fix to this.

Just to check, when holding the spacebar are you clicking and dragging to pan?

That was a good idea to ask that! Hopefully Trevor wasn't dragging and that would solve the spacebar problem.

But, if you think about it, why not make it work without dragging? You're holding down the spacebar for some reason, why not pan without requiring a drag? Just watch where the mouse pointer is.

I'm not clicking and dragging, but I am dragging with the mouse. Is there something else I am supposed to do instead?

Just moving the mouse around, or stroking a trackpad with one finger, isn't enough. You need to hold down the spacebar, press the mouse button and keep it pressed, then move it around.

I have been looking at XD and have the same issue on Windows 10.

I downloaded and opened the web wire-frames file and everything is tiny so I zoom in but then no way to pan, when I press spacebar the hand tool appears but no panning is possible and the two finger option doesn't work for me either. Just no way to pan, so uninstalling now and have no time to mess around with programs where basic features are missing and others don't seem to work. How long have Adobe been developing this?

Honestly Adobe XD is pretty sparse, if you'd kept on developing Fireworks you could have had an all round tool that would have been far more accomplished and you wouldn't have lost so many Mac customers to Sketch !! ... KARMA.

FYI I believe Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo integration is going to be much tighter in the next or future version. That will make it a far superior option to Adobe for web/mobile mock ups for Windows users. In other words it'll be like Fireworks with bitmap and vector editing integrated and fast workflow

thanks, solved my problem. I couldn't pan with the pen on my wacom tablet while pressing the space bar, only with the mouse. Now it works with the pen.

I use the XP-Pen tablet, and have the issue of not being able to pan with the Space help down. I don't see this 'Use Wondows Ink' checkbox. Any ideas for me please?

That does not work with a touchpad on a laptop.  Holding down the spacebar and left side of my touchpad does not work.   I have to plug in a USB mouse and use the left button on that to get the pan to work.  I don't always want to plug in a mouse. Is there some workaround where a touchpad can be used with panning or does Adobe plan to fix this glitch with the new October update?

Being able to pan and navigate my file is a huge necessity to using this software and if I can't pan I have to choose other software until Adobe can make this usable on a laptop.

Try two fingers on the mouse pad, it might work but its NOT very intuitive, it sort of worked for me but was a bit hit and miss ... I've finished looking at XD its too sparse in features for our taste.

The hit and miss feel of it was true for me too, when the default lines was 13 and default characters was 3. With 20, 20, it's pretty nice.

Spacebar-drag continues to work for me, and you can let go of the spacebar after you start dragging.

Here's an interesting thing, though it may be because I'm running Windows 10 on my Mac, but I am able to use two fingers to pan the page. The pan speed is slow though, but that's changeable in the mouse settings. Setting the two numbers to be 20 lines and 20 characters made two finger panning work as smoothly on Windows as it does on Mac:

Try pressing down the middle mouse button and move the mouse. Works for me 🙂
