This is the latest in a never-ending stream of work destroying bugs that Adobe XD appears to excel at.
Here's the process:
• Right-click on a character style
• Select edit
• Use the eye-dropper tool to select a color from the assets thumbnail swatches. (why my saved colors are not directly accessible from the character styles edit menu is beyond me and raises numerous questions about the whole XD interface but that's another matter...)
• My character style now has a colour that doesn't match what I just selected.
As an example, if I use the eye-dropper to select from a saved color which is #547474, my text style becomes #4A696F. What is going on here?? It's beyond belief. The worst part is that you don't necessarily notice that the wrong color was applied.
here's a screen grab depicting what I described:
as you can see, "mid text" is defined as #547474 yet h2 edit menu displays it as #4A696F
THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO COMPLETELY DESTROY A CAREFULLY CRAFTED DESIGN SYSTEM AND IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
