Saving your work as cloud documents helps you share, collaborate, and access your work from multiple devices.
Cloud documents ensure that your work is always updated, across every device, wherever you are, with full fidelity.
You can access cloud documents from the XD Home screen or the Cloud Document Organizer or from the Creative Cloud website.
Simple and efficient asset utilization
Use linked assets to share and reuse design elements across design systems, or ensure brand consistency across your designs. No boundaries for your documents or your creativity!

Your Creative Cloud plan includes different types of cloud storage—cloud documents, libraries, and Creative Cloud files (synced files). These have different uses and benefits.
With cloud documents, your work is always updated wherever you are and saved to the cloud automatically in the background. The shared format for Photoshop, Photoshop on the iPad, and Adobe Fresco, lets you move seamlessly between them, while XD cloud documents allow real-time collaboration. You can manage your cloud documents right in your app’s Home screen or in the Creative Cloud website.
Libraries let you collect and share design elements—graphics, images, character styles, brushes, and color palettes—specific to a project or client. Access these assets in your favorite Creative Cloud apps. Libraries help ensure you and your team are using the same elements across documents and projects.
Creative Cloud files are saved to the cloud and are accessible from any connected device. Changes you make are synced automatically. You manage Creative Cloud files in the Creative Cloud website and can even upload other files related to a project, so all your assets are together. (Adobe Fresco and Adobe Aero don't support Creative Cloud files.)
We've got you started with cloud documents to help you collaborate, co-own, and co-design. If you experience any issues with creating, saving, or opening a cloud document, check this article for a solution.
