Stuck in opacity adjuster

When I'm trying to alter border or fill properties the app is stuck in the opacity section. When I click in the border properties it switches back to the opacity section. This happens whatever move technique I use, either mouse click of shift to move to next section, it always returns to the opacity adjuster. Yet another great feature that we are blessed with after the last update I guess. W10.

That’s definitely a bug, then. What OS are you on? If you’re on Windows, a build number would be best.-Elaine

Hi perrybrus,

Apologize for your frustration. Are you facing this issue with the latest XD update as well?

Thanks,

Oh my god Yes! I keep trying to type in width/position values and it keeps automatically switching to the opacity slider. So if I start typing  "20..." for the "x" position value all of a sudden the object is 20% opacity.

This generally tells me that you don't have anything selected in the property inspector. By default, if you have an object selected but nothing in the property inspector selected, typing in numbers will change the opacity as a shortcut.

I'm clicking the number field to select the whole number, making the field selected, then start typing and it automatically switches focus to the opacity slider. This happens with any of the x,y position and width, height fields. It doesn't seem to matter how I "select" the field (click, double-click, tab-space), it randomly decides I want to change the opacity instead.

W10 as mentioned in my case. I also have almost the exact same problem with stroke weight. I put the cursor inside the weight field but I can't change the number. I can't select it with the cursor, I can't move inside the box with arrow key. It's just no way to change the number! Also, very hard to click a text box without creating a new text box. I really have to make repeated attempts at clicking inside a text box to edit it. I feel lucky if I succeed.

I know I'm introducing several issues under one topic here but XD appears very unstable - still. I've had issues like this on and off since the app became available for Windows. It just makes me avoid the whole product and stay with Axure all day instead, cause that makes me able to deliver work. And constantly having to either read support forums or post questions myself isn't a time saver either.

This is the problem I think: many older and still current adobe apps require you to double click these little value boxes. Then you input your number. XD only requires one click. We are creatures of habit. I find myself doing the double click, then number. The second click deselects the box value. This will as you say, default adjust the opacity. All that said, I like the one click better, and i am gladly learning to use it. It’s all about speed.

Nope. Doesn't work anyhow I click. Single click, double clicks, drag, no drag, keyboard enter etc. It's a mess and a classic bug if ever I saw one. XD has always been unstable in my point of view. It's always something that doesn't work in the UI and some of these issues have been going on for ages

Same issue, most recent Windows version as of today. (5.0.12.8)

While this happens for me when I attempt to click a value (say, font-size), I can reproduce the issue every time by attempting to select the value by dragging the mouse over the number in the input field. When doing this, the value gets highlighted and appears to be selected however, as soon as I release the mouse button the value gets unselected. Therefor, if I attempt to key in a value then the opacity is selected by default and the value is applied to this field instead.

One would expect that because the input field is indicated with a light-grey bottom border that this entire area is selectable however, it is not. See example when I attempt to change the font size to 67px;
