Learn about the new features and enhancements in the April 2022 release of XD.
New Features in Adobe XD 50.0
Quickly organize asset groups and subgroups in the Document Assets panel path view using forward slashes (/). If an old document has asset names containing slashes, when you open it in XD 50, you get a prompt to convert the slashes into new nesting levels in the group hierarchy, or replace the slashes with a dash (—) to retain the hierarchy.
Also, you can now rename main components and group them in the Layers panel. When you update a component name or group it in the Layers panel, it is reflected in the Document Assets panel.
To learn more about organizing assets using groups, see Organize assets into groups and subgroups.
If any Creative Cloud library links to your document assets panel are broken, when you click them, you get a summary of the underlying reasons for the broken links along with instructions to resolve them.
