How do I add assets to Creative Cloud Libraries from other Adobe apps such as Photoshop or Illustrator?
To add character styles or colors: Select the asset having the color or character style that you want to add to Creative Cloud Libraries. In the Creative Cloud Libraries panel, click the Add Character Style, or Add Color icon.
To add raster graphics: Select the asset and drag it to the Creative Cloud Libraries panel.
The assets are immediately added to Creative Cloud Libraries. When you open XD, these assets are visible in the CC Libraries panel. You can go ahead and use these assets in your XD projects.
Drag an image from Creative Libraries to your artboard. By default, the image is added to the artboard as a linked image. This means that any modification made to the asset affects all its linked copies.
To bring graphics from Creative Cloud Libraries as unlinked assets, press Alt/Option while dragging it from the Libraries panel.
To change a graphic from a linked to an unlinked asset, click the green link icon at the upper left corner of the asset.
Select an object in the active XD document, and then do one of the following:
- Click a color in a library in the Libraries panel, or right-click the color, and select Apply as Fill.
- To apply a color stroke (border), right-click a color in the CC Libraries panel, and select Apply as Border.
Select a text object in the artboard. In the Creative Cloud Libraries panel, click a character style.
If a font from a character style is not present on the local computer, a warning icon is displayed to the right of the character style in Creative Cloud Libraries.
