I am using Adobe XD for the first time and I am running into trouble because in the Step 2 video for the "getting started" tutorials, it says to click three images from the demo files in the "Quick Start Assets" folder and drag them onto the orange circles in the artboard. In the tutorial, the images she drags into the circles all appear inside each circle. For me, it just shows a red circle with a line through it, indictating that I can't do this action the way the tutorial person said to do it. This is because she didn't explain how to do it on PC, only MAC. How do I do this on PC/Windows?

 

This is the video I'm referring to: https://youtu.be/MNS9X1fsngM?t=210 (Issue is at timestamp 3:30)

 

If it helps at all: I am using a Lenovo IdeaPad FLEX 5-1570 and I'm using Windows 10. I have the latest version/updates on Adobe XD.

Add images and text from outside the application using the repeat grid feature. Follow along by downloading the tutorial file here: http://www.adobe.com/go/...

Hi there,   Thanks for reaching out. You can drag and drop images in Adobe XD on Windows similarly to Mac OS. If you want to drag and drop a single image you can click on the image and hold and drag it to Adobe XD and drop it to the shape in which you want that image to be. If you want to drag and drop multiple images, you can press CTRL and then select multiple images and then drag it and drop it to the Repeat grid.   Let us know if this helps or if you need any further assistance.   Regards Ri...

This doesn't seem to work for me. It still shows the circle with a line and doesn't allow me to drop the images. I tried other solutions from the web like changing the windows registery EnableLUA to 1 but nothing happens. I'm on the lates version of Adobe XD, 37.1.32 and windows 10 Version 10.0.18363.
