Clipboard fails between XD and other apps—including Ai—however it works within itself.
Please fix this so that there is a good integration and ability to copy something to the clipboard from XD and paste it in another app.
In the July release, you will be able to copy bitmap images of any selected elements or artboards. This will allow you to:
1. Copy artboards directly to presentations or specs built in apps like Powerpoint, Keynote, Google Docs, etc.
2. Copy any other elements into docs for presentations (raster)
3. Copy bitmaps and paste them into PS for quick edits and the copy/paste them back to XD.

This feature does not work in the Windows version of XD.

Yes, this would be particularly useful between Photoshop where I have been designing all my apps already, if we could copy and paste with the layers intact it would be super helpful!
