Import PDFs

Vector assets for iOS are PDFs. Not being able to import existing assets directly sucks.

    I would love to be able to open a PDF file by clicking a certain element on my board. (E.g, opening p the manual). Or to be able to link to an url that holds the pdf and opens as an internet page?

    I would love to open/import (drag and drop) PDF vectors like SVG. For complex PDF page layout, it would be great that behave like in InDesign if you drop it on a shape you get PDF preview inside that shape ;)

    Similar implementation that occurs via mac os's finder/preview would be great! If you have the apple notes app available for testing, try dragging a pdf in the and see the magic... same goes for a native mac os sticky note!!! This would be the best implementation to start with in my opinion -- although I use xd for many things outside of design and mockup so I would greatly benefit from any kind of pdf support. But if you're gonna do it, do it right!

    What feedback do you guys need? We just want simple PDF support. Nothing special, just basics. Cheers

    I would like to be able to use vector assets instead of png pre-made assets. Especially since our company has pre-made brand assets for use in our apps (icons, logos, app icons, etc). These live in our shared adobe library but yet I cannot use them inside XD. Having support for importing PDFs would be nice especially from my creative cloud library.

    I'd love to use XD for everything but please just try and open a pdf in Affinity and see how well it opens a fully editable document with the option to open a single page or create dartboards of the whole document.. This is what we need in XD. The workflow of opening files in Illustrator and having to copy and paste into XD is over complicated and time consuming.
