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 ;)
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.
It works now, but I definitely prefer the old workflow instead of having to download the kit from the website.
“Get UI Kits” is not opening in XD. It now takes me to the respective websites to download the kit(s).
- 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
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.

Adobe sent us 2 good kits with simple wireframes, it would be nice to add them as "UI Kits" on adobe XD and also have the ability to create and add my own kits to this section as well.

It would be nice if Adobe could provide the complete UI kit for iOS and Android. Current kits are limited.
Save as UI Kit AND store under "User UI Kits" in Start Up menu similar to iOS, Material, Windows, etc

I'm currently creating an entire design system in XD. What I would love to do is save this file as a new template (UI Kit), similar to how Sketch lets you save a file as a Template.
This is in reference to adding a new item to the File > Open UI Kit menu item.

Sketch has so many third party developers contributing to its usability being that it's an open source platform. I'm surprised Adobe hasn't implemented this feature already just to stay competitive with Sketch. Adobe keep an eye on Sketch, follow suit, and you will find more users using XD. You already have a jump with your prototyping tab.

I would definitely appreciate a complete UI kit for Apple, Android, and Material. I mean really cover every element in standard UI kit style. Huge help for designers and UX'ers in a rush to prototype.

This seems like an critical need for any team with a design system. It's the big thing keeping me tethered to Sketch.
1. Version 0.6.12.17 Beta
2. Click on File. Hover over "Open UI Kit". Click on any UI kit.
3. Expected to Open UI kit like it has in the past.
4. Get the message "Error loading document. Invalid document type."

I'd kill for that one. We all have to share the same UI Kit which is a template built by our designers but it would be great first to have it constantly updated, to have it available in the menu or even to mix that with artboard pre-defined sizes and content.

Can we have cloud-based / library integrated UI Kits?
Ravi Lautan commented
I think it would be great to accompany this feature with a UI kit pane. UI kits could be added and updated from here from a repository. That way you can make sure you're using the latest.
Anita Hall commented
Once I have a custom UI Kit, can I add it to the "Open UI Kit" menu?

Super useful for my whole company. We're building out a UI kit in XD and its working great.
However, If I work on too many files without opening it again, it gets out of my recent files.
I'd want to be able to keep it in the UI kit tab.
Yes! This is what I miss from sketch! The possibility to download UI kits, and use those. On my latest project I would love to have a iPad UI kit
well, once the "libraries" are accessible...this should be no problem. It could be easier to select elements from the library...as opposed to jumping between screens.
