Changes to XD Starter plan

Learn about upcoming updates to XD Starter plan.

Beginning June 2021, Starter plan users will have the following usage limits on these features:

  • Export designs to PDF up to two times

  • Export video recordings of prototypes up to two times (macOS only)

The Starter plan continues to include unlimited use of design and prototyping features, including exporting assets for production, as well as use of both cloud and local documents. 

Your existing exports continue to be available to view and share with others. These existing exports prior to June do not count towards your usage limit. If you need to export more than the limits on the Starter plan, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid plan.  

Recording videos of your prototypes is only supported on macOS. To learn how to record the interactions in your prototype, visit this page here
