[Text]-Gotham fonts is creating problem on mac in XD.

I'm trying to use Gotham and every time I change the typeface it puts the first line of text outside the editing box and i can't see it or edit it. Not to mention it screws up all my measurements. It's impossible to work. I can't pick a different font either because this is client work and they use Gotham.

 

I don't know what to do. Sometimes if I swap between fonts fast enough it stays in there. but then I can't change the typeface subtype because I come up against the same issue.

 

I'm really new to XD but I can't seem to find any way to change the copy's baseline although it does seem to be a baseline issue.

I've seen something like this reported: Text disappears – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs

It's Windows specific I think - Gotham is absolutely fine on my Macs.

Hi Kenneth,

I'm actually using a mac. It's the weirdest thing. It's not all the fonts either. I haven't the faintest what it is.

Did you get to the bottom of this? I am having the same issue with Gotham in XD. Was fine one day and not the next. If I change the font to something other than gotham it goes back in line with the text box.  I also use a mac.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear you are having trouble. Is it possible for you to share a short video capturing the problem for better understanding? Are you using the current version of XD (28.2)?

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi Harshika

 

Thanks for coming back to me. 

Here is the screen recording.

https://youtu.be/5nuzBRRnRZk

As you can see, Gotham is causing the font to sit above the box and it is difficult to edit text as the cursur doesn't sit where you expect.

I change the font to something else and it sits normal again. 

Change it back to Gotham and get the same problem. 

 

Yes XD is the current version (28.2)

 

Thanks,

Emma

Gotham works fine for me. It looks like you are not using the same font file as mine though. Mine came from Hoefler (the foundry) direct.
