Maybe I'm missing something but...

 

Why isn't there an easy way to bulk add assets or colors (or whatever) to adobe libraries?

 

It is crazy to me that you are not able to do this, easily. I know that photoshop can create various assets from the document. But a color palette for instance, if you don't build out your palette in PS then you have to copy/paste as shape layer for each color. What the!? Or you need to add all your colors individually—WAIT, WHAT!?

 

Why not just be able to select multiple swatches from AI, ID, XD, e.t.c and be able to add colors? It literally makes 0 sense. 

 

Why can't you tab through to rename or be able to bulk find/replace if you need to rename 100 different colors/assets? You have to click each one...huh!?

 

Also, why doesn't the layer/swatch/item name follow through each place you add it. E.G. If I name a color primary-XXX from XD and pull that into AI swatches why not keep the same name so it's easy to find? 

 

So many questions on usability issues or maybe I just don't know how to use the software anymore after years and years and years of using it.

I so rarely use Library assets except for Adobe Fonts, it's not something I think about much.  Feel free to submit your feature requests where the product engineers will see them.  If enough people agree with you, it might get added to the road map.

I haven't used it so much either, but I keep hearing how amazing it is to have all your assets in one spot where you can access them from the different software you use for better workflow. So, I thought I'd give it a go and really try to use it and ended up searching for probably a collective couple of hours over the last couple of days about how to do what seems like really basic things. Needless to say, I didn't have much luck.
