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.”

Please allow us also to add elements from XD to the cc libraries also, such as colors and text properties. I get tired of having to open up specific programs in order to add different elements to my libraries.

There's an inherent problem with the library's integration. I started Adobe XD literally today. I was working on a web design project in Photoshop and it's horrendously slow and I'm tired of pixelated text, vectors, everything. I imported my project into XD from the PSD design and every vector object that was a CC library asset was converted to a poorly rasterized vector in PNG format. Hopefully you're working on the property to keep the file formats or allow predefined settings, like converting all vectors to SVGs, on import for appropriate export when the design is ready for development.
Would love to be able to share 'private' libraries within our enterprise (company) or teams and not rely on the CC as we legally can't leverage external cloud storage.
What about to add a search inside the library also?? That's even more important don't you think?

Color palettes from Adobe Color! Now they are all listed as unsupported elements. :(
I've named and grouped my colour swatches and character/para styles etc in cc library – would be great if this could be seen in Xd too – takes a lot longer to find what I'm looking for by having everything listed individually in one long list.
What about color palette support? Not just individual swatches. PS and IL have this feature already.

I am so glad you guys are doing such a thing. This will help many poor people and many children will be educated too. this is a very good idea. It is very nice to introduce the color and character shellow used to enjoy.

Share libraries please. It's the one missing necessity that would make XD our tool of choice

Elaine Chao! Please help us!!! https://twitter.com/iamdesignsjoel/status/1118339019698360320 We need to share symbols!
Yes - I need to be able to:
1 - open other XD files in my Assets Panel as a library
2 - be able to pull from and ADD TO CC libraries

How is it going Adobe? I need my shared libraries!!!

A pity it's not possible to upvote comments here. Anyway, I have pretty much the same comments as those posted below, plus I need to be able to share and sync styles across xd files because the projects I work on tend to grow into numerous files and after some time, months, years it's a total mess.
It is a must have. It is impossible to work with XD files as a team without library support for shared symbols. Not to mention Design System. Are you still working on this Adobe? Last post from you in 2017...

We need shared libraries in XD. The ability to design and share components for the whole team to use within XD. This is the main factor why our company will keep using Sketch and not Adobe XD.
I can successfully pull in symbols/styles from existing cc libraries in XD - works fine.
But the thing is, I do most of my work in XD. I'm in the middle of updating our libraries based on comps I'm creating in XD. It is very inconvenient that I have to recreate them in Illustrator in order to add or edit symbols/styles and share them with the larger team. This is extra step is slowing down my flow, and it is making it increasingly hard to maintain our library as it grows.
I understand the concept behind this panel, but I really don't find it at all useful. Adobe CC Library is just so much more powerful. I understand that there are different teams for each product, but CC Library is one of those universal features whose greatest asset is it's ability to work between products. Please, please, please put your heads together on this one. Illustrator's Adobe CC Library game is strong right now - why not just improve the Library to include XD assets and get rid of the XD Assets Panel altogether? The Adobe CC Library even pops-out, allowing me to to place it on a different screen in order to maximize my artboard space (unlike the Assets Panel). The Assets Panel feature is just redundant. As it stands, I have to manually add colors to my color palette from Adobe CC Library (since they are brand-guide dictated), then AGAIN, manually add them to my Assets Pane. Same goes for my icon library, character styles (not even supported by AdobeXD's Library Panel, but is by other products?), etc. Just too much work. I love where your head is at, it's just not there yet.

Adding, editing, removing and ORGANISING library elements from within XD is a big requirement.
BOTH WAYS!! Create Library Elements from XD! Pointless if it doesn't work both ways!
Any news here? We are really looking forward to use XD as a master library.
