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.
Dear XD Community -
I’m excited to announce that we have shipped a new version of Creative Cloud libraries in XD that allows you to:
1. Add assets from XD to CC Libraries
2. Brings in the full functionality of CC Libraries in other CC Apps such as Photoshop and Illustrator into XD
3. Allows you to consume XD components in other Apps such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator
To learn more about the new Creative Cloud Libraries improvements, please check:
Please give it a try and share with us your feedback on areas that you would like us to further improve upon.
Add the Adobe Libraries so that importing shared elements and adobe stock is easier

Will there be a single source of truth we can pull into multiple documents? Or just a style guide generated inside an individual document? I would really hope we could create a single style guide in the cloud, and then, when we open a new document, we could pull assets from that style guide so we're always creating with approved assets. For instance, I open a new document, and I automatically have my brand's colors and multiple symbols that I use across all my company's products. That way, I can have a document for each of my company's products that all share the same colors, icons, logos, and fonts. And when I create a new document, I can use my brand's elements from the start without having to recreate them or copy-and-paste them. Plus, if I change a symbol in one document, it updates across all my documents. Please, please, please have it work this way!!! It would be amazing and super helpful!!! Thanks!

Give us a due date!

Many of the Assets I use for UI design are in my CC Libraries and I don't find any way of accessing them in XD. If there was a simple way to access, such as in PS or AI, it would make many designers happy!

I would +100 this. It is really difficult to work without the CC Library pane, now that we are so used to it day in day out.

Seriously, Adobe??? C'mon guys.
XD definitely needs a much more may of handling symbols. First of I would LOVE to see full integration with Adobe CC libraries. I want to able to switch between illustrator and potentially any other Adobe product seamlessly. Super important!
Secondly, upgrade symbols to be smarter. Sketch currently lets you change text and image from the properties inspector WITHOUT changing the core symbol. Really useful. Also Sketch has the possibility to align nested symbols and graphics in another symbol so that when scaling they position themselves either pinned to corner, stretched, resize or simply float.

When can we expect this feature to ship?

Looks like what was shown at AdobeMAX covers this nicely. Upvoted all the same.

Imperative to include CC Library to import assets...
Being able to import assets from libraries such as you can between ai and ps
Vincent Koopmans commented
I hope this is prioritized in the backlog, because it is the one thing keeping us from using XD on certain projects. As well as some of our clients who are in the process of making the switch from Photoshop.
I am wondering why the beloved CC Library isn't integrated in Adobe XD.
Edwin Delgado commented
This is crucial for team design. At least having internal libraries access. The team should be able to share assets within Adobe XD without having to leave the app.

I've been using Xd here at work as I'm the UX/UI developer with my team. It makes prototyping quick and easy. However, I find myself going into Illustrator a lot, pulling assets from my libraries (like icons and logos), editing their fill colors, copying, and having to paste them into Xd which becomes very time consuming. Still, it is a wonderful program, and I hope it's one that Adobe keeps in their lists of apps. Incorporating the ability to support CC Libraries would be wonderful though.

Why are more users not up-voting this feature? - c'mon UX'rs - anyone really focused on team development, developing design patterns and overall productivity should be all over this feature (along with the other Master/Reusable elements and Global Style feature requests)! Vote more....
This is the one thing holding me back from using XD for more than just tinkering. My style tiles are done in photoshop, exported to library assets, then I WOULD use XD for my wireframing and then UX design, adding assets from Illustrator and Photoshop as I work my way through, before building in Dreamweaver.
It would be the perfect workflow for me and many like me. Please make it happen.
