What is Adobe XD and who is it for?
Where can I get Adobe XD?
If you’re an existing Creative Cloud member, the easiest way to install Adobe XD is using the Creative Cloud desktop app - simply choose Install from the Apps tab.

What other apps can I use with XD?
You can bring in existing design work from either Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Copy from Illustrator and paste into XD so as to continue working with vector-based content. Copy from Photoshop and paste into XD as a bitmap.
You can also copy from any other tool that places SVG content on the clipboard and paste that content into XD, in addition to importing JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF and SVG content through the File>Import option.
What does it mean when a feature is called a Beta feature?
A feature labeled Beta means that:
- The feature addresses a subset of use cases within a larger workflow (for example, designers handing off designs to developers).
- We expect requests for additional depth and breadth in functionality which we’ll look to tackle before removing the Beta label.
- The feature’s availability and delivery are subject to change.
- You can expect the same quality and performance as you would of any other feature we deliver.

How come my artboards look corrupted on Windows?
Adobe XD requires a modern GPU with the latest drivers installed. If you’re seeing large chunks of shifted pixels in your artboards, you should update your drivers to the latest versions in order to ensure the best experience with XD. Note that many hardware vendors do not update their drivers for older GPUs. For more information on whether or not your drivers are compatible, see the System Requirements.
There are specific rendering issues with two older drivers for which there are no available updates from the vendor - Intel 126.96.36.19997 and Intel 188.8.131.5202.
Why is XD sometimes closing when left for a longer time in the background?
When using many resource-demanding apps simultaneously on your PC, Windows 10 might choose to close some of its native apps running in the background to optimize its performance. If this happens, Adobe XD will save your file automatically and you can resume your work by going to File > Open Recent, and choose the file from the list.

Why am I unable to export my assets?
Your export may not have completed for several reasons.
