While you could previously use assets from Creative Cloud libraries, you can now add assets such as colors, character styles, and components from XD to it as also organize the uploaded assets. The assets that you upload can be used across XD projects as also other applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator.

Working with CC libraries in Adobe XD is similar to working with them using other Creative Cloud applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator. For more info, and details on current limitations, see see



Current Limitations

  • You cannot edit colors or character Styles in Creative Cloud Libraries in XD.

  • You cannot edit graphics or components that are added from XD to Creative Cloud Libraries.

  • When you add a component to a CC Library, only the active component state will be added. You will lose all the other component states and interactions defined within that component.
  • The component instances are not linked to the component in your Creative Cloud Library. So the changes you make to the master component in your XD document will not affect the component stored in your Creative Cloud Libraries.
