    Okay, so I’m trying to understand here. By looking up documentation, I see that you can place images in your file and link them to an image on your file system, so not embedding them in the file. (I’m assuming you’re not talking about inserting links to images on the Internet via URLs.) When the document opens, it loads up the image and places it in. In some apps, updating the file on the file system will update the image automatically without any intervention, and in other apps, changing it on the file system won’t update until you either manually refresh or relaunch the app.

    This scenario is what I was defining as “dynamic linking.” Smart Objects (as I’m defining them in my head) are elements that are in a CC file format (like Photoshop or Illustrator). Am I misunderstanding your request for external links?

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

    Elaine - I find your reply foolish. You know exactly what we want and the the nature of the request. And everyone knows this is an easy thing for your devs to do.

    Why not start with allowing us to link, via a published/shared URL, to other Adobe XD prototypes? I am in prod for a healthcare firm and we are using XD to create CarePlans. So for me to engage our customers/prospects, they need us to send them 200 friggin links. What a pain in the ass. Would be nice to use XD and create a prototype dashboard that would be the catch all for all of our other XD health related prototypes. Just get this done, will you? I pressed our company to abandon your major competitor only to get pigeon holed.
