Creative Cloud Library Support (share symbols/assets across multiple files or team)
This would make it easier to use the assets created in other Adobe applications.
Hi, everyone! In the August release of Adobe XD, we’ve introduced the ability to consume colors and character styles from your existing Creative Cloud library. We’re working on bringing you the ability to bring in graphics (both bitmaps and vectors) as well, so we’re keeping this feature open until we get that out the door.
In the meantime, if you have feedback on what we’ve already released, please do file a new idea so that we can get community feedback on it.
If you haven’t seen the update yet, launch the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon, and select “Check for App Updates.”
This would be very useful (contributing XD assets to CC libraries). A few thoughts...
• Make library color styles support fill and stroke properties in a single chip (can set either to none). This feature is needed across the board for CC library color chips.
• Make color styles update like assets... in other words if I modify a color in the a CC library color style it updates everywhere that color is used/linked. This is critical for tweaking style guides. Sketch supports this and is a competitive advantage for them (our visual design department is moving toward Sketch for this reason)
• Allow XD features such as repeat grids to be included in CC library asset.
I would like to know, how can I keep the CC Libraries window open, every time I switch between applications like Illustrator and Photoshop, the panels always stay open, but not in XD, is there any way to keep it open? Thank you!
This feature would tweak my workflow substantially. Now I have to find and copy symbols I created before across multiple files. Would be so much better to save them to a libary, and simply reuse them.
Also very useful to add to this feature: group symbols etc. into sections, so I can find symbols faster, like "Buttons", "Form elements", "Navigation elements", ....
Looking out for this feature :)
I think we all want CC Libraries to have a Symbols section, and also the ability to organise these into Groups, perhaps tagging.
So take this as a big must Adobe! Especially since Sketch just introduced Prototyping.
As sketch now has shared (even nested) libraries as a feature, this will be a critical feature for XD to compete. If it ends up being a CC library that can be shared across photoshop & illustrator, that will be killer!
Is there a way to search libraries in XD? I can't find any kind of search bar.
me and my team (UX designers) would like to know when the CC libraries will be available for use. we want to make in adobe XD a design system component library so that we can use it.
This feature of having one place to store symbols and other assets would be very helpful. It would make it much easier working together and across multiple documents.
Fingers crossed this will be coming very very soon.

I was hoping that you guys were already working on this feature and it looks like we'll be getting it soon.
Thanks for working on this feature.

It is ABSURD that XD doesn't support Color Themes. How the heck am I supposed to work on website/app prototypes within the color schemes of my company?!
would love to have all files / graphics supported... my CC library does show only bitmaps being supported... any other format like AI-Files or SVGs are not supported yet.
Yeah no library assets in cloud work, other adobe apps show color pallets fine, but xD says it can’t connect and all assets are incompatible. Really ? Color pallets?
I have XD last version and all the lkibraries I need to work with present most of its components non supported.
What coould I do?
Adam, it was the first thing I tried to do in XD after building a project library from a PSD web design. Very frustrating when you expect to have a one-stop app for all actions. I've moved on to sketchApp and anxiously waiting for Invison Studio.

How do you add assets to a shared CC library in XD? It seems impossible...am I missing something?

Oh, why this feature is a separate overlay window?! Photoshop is a great tool much better than Sketch just because it allows to customize your workspace exactly like you need. But this panel is just an overlay and you can't even resize it properly! Annoying.

Ability to share all the items in the asset panel from one document into another.
It's a shame this is not resolved in the CC release. Still feels like beta somehow
Still only Colors appear in XD CC Lib. panel. Character styles and graphics are still not supported. macOS 10.12.6, XD 1.0.
