Built-in Library of Common UI Elements

It would be great if AdobeXD could provide sort of a library of UIElements from iOS, OSX, Android and Windows besides the given UIKits. So you can simply drag e.g. the textfield to your artboard and adjust this afterwards. This would make the process of designing an app much more easier!

    You can download great UI Kits an dopen them as a seperate file which is pretty sweet.

    What did you have in mind as the exact benefit of having these built in? Automatic updating? Faster drag and drop?

  • L. Quam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes yes yes! After using other UI design tools, one looks at XD and just thinks, "Huh? A square, circle, line and pen?" I get that you were going for a clean, spare UI, and that we can "Get UI Kits". But copying & pasting from a kit is clunkier than just reaching from a ready set of symbols, and I spent several hours just optimizing a kit to better reflect my company's product style (is there an across-the-board font replace feature and I just missed it?)

    I could not agree more. Only a few of the many, many features requested have as dramatic an impact as this one. This would truly elevate the XD experience. If I could press vote another 400 times, I would.

    This idea is very good, I really need this idea.

    Have SVG Icons in XD so that we don't have to search for icons externally and can use the icons directly from XD like drag-drop...

  • Dave Lowndes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I think this is a real deal breaker. This is not a rapid prototyping tool. If I create a menu with icons I want to ability to click an icon and choose another immediately from available icon libraries, I don't want to manually search for an icon, copy it from one document to another, resize it to fit and ensure it aligns with the previous icon. That is NOT RAPID prototyping. To me this product offer little advantage over using something like Illustrator and I will continue to seek RAPID prototyping tools. Balsamiq seems the fastest and easiest here, I just need the ability to rapidly layout screens, link them into interactions/workflow and share, preferably where they can just 'play' the prototype on their phone.

    I agree. A "Quick Search" feature would be awesome and take Adobe Xd to the next level.

  • Philomena A commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    A UI components and icon library that you can search through by text (just as in balsamiq, moqups, Axure and others) would speed up the wireframing process so much ! For now unfortunatelly this does not feel like the most appropriate tool for wireframing.

  • Amin Khadmi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, we are looking for this feature. We believe that one day XD would be leading tool for UI/UX industry.

  • Matthijs Mali commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Where having common UI elements is a good idea, an even better idea would be to be able to create your own design library. Offcourse this is already feasable with the current (november 2017) version, but takes a lot of effort.

    What I would like to see is the ability to create assign a certain asset or symbol to a common UI element. Enabling it to perform certain features. This would be perfect when combined with the feature request concerning symbol states.

    There are UI kits which are just templates filled with UI elements for iOS and Material Design available. Google "UI Kit iOS Adobe XD". That being said, all Adobe apps should be able to create elements and see elements shared from other apps with drag-n-drop from libraries with content-aware colors, fonts, etc... and the libraries should look and work alike across all of them. It's nuts that the library interface looks different in each app.

  • Youness Bensouda commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Adobe XD is a great tool but sorry not ready to design mockups.

    I never used any adobe tool cause I'm marketeer, you really should adapt this tools with many icons library in order to let profile marketeer work with your tool.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes! Better still, allow users to set up their house style(s) — and allow a workgroup to share it via Adobe Cloud and increment the styles over time. Better, better still set up and manage their project or corporate style guide based on those elements.

  • TJ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Completely agree with this. I need some kind of searchable ui and icons library so I can just throw ideas onto the screen and experiment. Is this feature were built it would make switching over to XD a likelihood in my organization.

  • Morgan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I agree. We need this. I like XD more than Balsamiq but we need a generic UI kit that has all the common items like form elements, tabs, buttons, etc.
