Add your own custom UI Kits

The ability to add your own UI Kits to the start screen

It's great having iOs etc on there but for professionals working on lots of projects (web based) for big brands there is definitely a need to have custom UI Kits for each brand. This will speed up projects massively as well as maintaining consistency across all projects. Thats essential when you are working to strict brand guidelines.

Make it happen Adobe ;)

    This is a truly important feature to have fully handy. Please consider to add it as soon as possible. Thanks!!

    Really surprised you can't import a UI Kit permanently! Please make this happen. Also, we should be able to import a cloud based UI Kit that is updated by it's author. Whenever the author rolls out a change on his UI Kit, it should automatically be reflected in XD.

    This is a feature I think we all desperately need. Would make design work so much easier.

    would love to import a UI kit (either pre made or my own custom) as a "library" for quick drag/drop from the assets panel

  • Archana R commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's awesome that we get to download UI kits directly from iOS, Google etc, and so the "Get UI kit" option is definitely useful. It would make for a better workflow, however, if there was an option to open the kits we've downloaded from within the app via a dedicated link, say "Open UI Kit / Load UI Kit"

    As for updates to the kits from the various brands, it would be nice to sync the downloaded UI kits and be notified of updates available, either via email or, have a "Update this kit" option within the XD menu.

    why not please add! now that with latest update there are lots of assets to download from, so downloading each one and placing it in a folder! not a good way

  • Hal commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As so many have said before - being able to install and see the options with one click of a mousewould be sooo much more convenient. Having those folders / files sync with vendor updates would be really useful too.

    the only downside i see with xd so far.

    Agreed! I am a designer for Home Depot with strict Brand standards and this would be perfect to "park" our VDS document for use on the team.

  • Julie Dodd commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Many excellent ideas and suggestions here, so I'll just add that this would be absolutely brilliant.

  • Daniel Cunder commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    yes, assets seems like a great idea. But please add another menu for UI Kits that we could import and use it next to the assets. Sort of like prescribed library in UI Kit, custom assets, both accessible within a project

    I was thinking that the "Get UI kits" in the Hamburger Menu could be reworked. Basically XD should store a list of paths to the XD files that we want to bookmark or it should ask for a folder that it can search through so we can open UI kits on the fly.

    Having to open UI kits one by one through the file explorer is tedious and incredibly ineffecient.

  • Rosie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It works now, but I definitely prefer the old workflow instead of having to download the kit from the website.

  • Dave commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    “Get UI Kits” is not opening in XD. It now takes me to the respective websites to download the kit(s).

  • narayanan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    - previously google material was a separate file and it was very easy in usablity point of view to copy paste from another file - indeed was very useful - please revert u can add a web version who wants more icons - can download and add in respective files

  • benekuehn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    At first we had UI Kits under "File" now theres just a link to the current version. Thats great. But if have downloaded a UI Kit it would be nice to load it in the UI Kit Option to have the file stored in XD with easy access, so that I don't have to search for it on my Mac and open it manually.
