I originally wanted to get into using Adobe XD in my workflows for concept designing web & interfaces.

Unfortunately the software just has more issues than things which just work.

Right of the bat, I'm forced trying to fix countless issues and bugs before I can even remotely start working...

 

First 2h into the software.:

 

- The UI Scale can't be changed. XD is installed in a protected Windows folder... So I can't adjust the Windows High DPI scaling either. This is not fun at all on a special high dpi screens setup... as I can't set a zoom level for the preview.

 

- Fonts are so buggy it hurts. Not only is XD the only software getting font styles wrong, it also doesn't update windows fonts when they are changed. We have our own custom fonts made over here. So if an update gets pushed - its impossible for some reason to ever see it in XD...

Every other Adobe software "Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop" works fine. Just XD never updates it.

 

- Media files also don't update once they are changed.

- Character Styles don't save Appearance settings. So using character styles with borders or anything is not possible.

 

Running into this much crap within the first 2h using a software, shows clearly that its in no production ready state.

I unsuccessfully searched for solutions for about 3h and have not found a single one. Overall creating a terrible user experience.
