Import Adobe XD Designs into Axure

Attention Adobe users! Download the new Axure plugin for Adobe XD to import your designs from XD into Axure RP. Now you can take designs and diagrams started in XD and transform them into rich, interactive prototypes with the power of Axure RP.

You can also export artboards from Adobe XD directly to Axure Cloud for easy sharing and handoff. Use Axure Cloud Discussions to gather feedback from your teammates and stakeholders, and extract detailed CSS and layout information with Axure Cloud Inspect.

Copy and Paste from Adobe XD to Axure RP

Imported Adobe XD layers are converted to Axure RP widgets, and the structure of the layers is maintained with RP widget groups. This gives you an accurate import while still allowing you to tweak designs on the fly in RP as needed.
