Hi,

I recently became very interested in Adobe Xd and I just discovered this problem. Mine does not have the bar at the top of the page with the File, Edit, Object View, etc.... This is annoying and is very hard to work without. It is also hard to work with tutorials on projects. I noticed this in a youtube video on how to do something. Here is a screenshot from my computer:

Here is a screen capture fro youtube:

I don't know if this has to do with it being in Beta stage or windows vs. mac, but this is highly annoying.

 

Thanks,

H.

What program is everyone switching to? I've used Adobe for over 20 years (!) and just decided to teach myself xD but given that I'm running windows, the lack of a menu toolbar seems like a waste of time. Just going thru tutorials and I'm already so frustrated. Can't imagine trying to complete a project.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. In the Windows version of XD, we have the hamburger menu from where you can access other options. For more information, please refer to this article: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/xd-top-menu-missing-windows/m-p/10795237#M20334

But most of the things still not in the hamburger, like option view and others too. So how we(Windows users ) get rid of these problems?

I am calling you out on this comment. Hate speech is not tolarable. By
using such words, you discredit your own opinion. I might add, it's a
crime.

May I suggest you keep your interventions in the "positive criticism "
side. I understand you have free speech. You also have the liberty of being
civil. Say what you have to say by in a way that is acceptable.

XD isn't all that great, but wishing the death of an other person is
exaggerated. Try "I wish you stump your toes". It's proportional and it'll
make us smile.

That doesn't really help, unfortunately. The hamburger menu has a lot of options but it looks like a disturbing number of functions are missing from the Windows hamburger menu. I can't figure out how to do a lot of simple tasks that are quite easy on Mac 😞

 

These are not even the same products and I don't feel like this should be a live product if this many options are missing.

You need to select object in layers or find command after right clicking and open contextual menu for that object. Also you can use the properties panel.

Hi,
I downloaded the app Adobe XD on my Windows laptop. Now I am running into a problem. When I am working in the app I can't see the menu bar where you can find the option as file, edit, object, etc. Because of this I don't have access to many options while working in Adobe XD. What can I do to fix this?
