We know that the day to day workflow of a designer involves many tools, and having a seamless connection to these tools from directly within your design environment is incredibly powerful. Earlier in the year, we released a handful of integrations with popular tools for Mac users, but Windows support was a top user request. As part of our July release of Adobe XD, we’re bringing support for popular third-party integrations to Windows.
Designer to developer workflow
Handoff from designers to developers is vital, and we’re committed to making that collaboration as smooth as possible. Adobe XD includes a Design Specs feature, and now supports integrations from Zeplin and Avocode on Windows.
You can now create high fidelity interactions and advanced prototypes in ProtoPie on Windows, using designs created in XD.
How to get started using popular third-party integrations in XD for Windows
If you are already using these popular services and tools, download the July release of Adobe XD here or from your Creative Cloud desktop app, and learn how to get started with integrations from Zeplin, Avocode, and ProtoPie.
If you are using a Mac, please visit this article to learn more about the third-party integrations supported on Mac and how to get started using them.
Making XD a platform for design
These three integrations are just the start of being able to connect XD to other tools and enabling users to customize XD for their individual workflows. Later this year, we’ll be opening up our platform more broadly to enable anybody to build plugins and integrations and to supercharge designer workflows.
If you want to see a specific plugin in XD – please tell us! Visit our uservoice site to join the conversation.
To better support developers and entrepreneurs building products and services for designers, we launched the Adobe Fund for Design earlier this year, $10 million to support individuals, teams, and organizations building products and services for creatives. If you’re interested in building plugins for XD, sign up to get notified when XD extensibility is available.
Let’s keep the conversation going! You can follow our handle @AdobeXD for updates or reach the team on Twitter using the #AdobeXD. You can also chat with us on Facebook, where we share videos and updates as well as answer questions during live sessions.
