    I really want to be able to import a color swatch directly into my color pallet in XD not just have it as a separate window. (similar functionality to Illustrator and Photoshop from saved colors)

    Another problem with the current implementation is that XD has no way to apply the selected color to the border. In other words, selecting a color from either the XD color asset palette or the CC library palette will always apply it to the fill. No way to access the shared palettes for a stroke.

    It should also be noted that adding colors as assets to an XD document does not add them to the color picker in design mode (I think it should). It is in the design palette where I set the stroke color (shared palettes are not accessible for strokes which is a problem).

    Perhaps what would be most desirable would be the ability to use the eye-dropper on an element and pickup all of it's styling and - like Illustrator - be able to apply that style to a selected element. Very tedious currently to apply styles in XD, generally have to do all that work in Illustrator and port into XD.

    I'm not sure if this works exactly as it does in Photoshop,
    For Photoshop you can seamless eyedrop from your palettes created in Colour CC
    For some reason in XD in the CC Libraries it has my list of colour palettes as unsupported features.
    And as it currently stands I can't do anything to get past this or indeed use my palettes - I came on the forums looking for a way to use them so I wonder if this request feature is the same as my issue?
