The XD tutorials show using the CC color palettes in XD, however, when I open my CC library from within XD it is empty and says "39 unsupported elements". How do I access the color palettes in CC?

First: What version of XD do you use and on which OS?!

File > Open CC Libraries…

The «Unsupported elements» are not the colors i guess.

It's possible that this thread is still relevant. Unsuported elements in this library
and that Adobe is still working on adding support for some elements.
The colours should be supported though.
Can you upload a screenshot of your CC Libraries when opened via XD.

I think I figured it out. Individual colors are supported, but color palettes (made and saved in CC) are NOT supported, which is a shame because that's how I make my color palettes for projects.

Actually at least in the latest iteration of XD, you can get the color palettes as shown in this screenshot:

Are you colors saved in "Color" section of CC Libraries?.

Also please try to create colors in Adobe  Color​  and download them into your CC Library  to test that all works fine..

The colors show up, the issue is the color palettes. I'm guessing they are not supported like they are in PS, Ai, and ID.

When I make a color palette in Adobe Color CC the palette is saved to my library and I can access it from all the other programs except XD. If I save an individual color to swatches from PS, Ai, or ID those swatches show up. Unfortunately this means an additional step as I have to go into another program, save all the swatches, then access them in XD. Versus just being able to access a previously saved palette of full colors.

I am not sure I understand what you mean. Are you talking about a color theme or a color library because if you saved swatches and then saved your item to a library then your colors are available in XD.

However if you are talking about extensions/Adobe Color themes, then right, they are not available in XD.
