The Best Adobe XD Plugins for Designers

Adobe XD is a user experience and user interface design software that enables designers to design and prototype websites and apps without code.

Announced in 2015 as Project Comet, the first beta release was released on March 2016 on macOS and later that year, in December for Windows. Almost a year ago, in on 18 October 2017, Adobe announced that their new software was out of beta.

With it’s latest update design and prototyping tool Adobe XD announced the support of plugins and a new open developer platform.

  1. Just out of pure curiosity:

    I’m the developer of the two plugins Lorem Ipsum and Text Toolbox. I want to emphasize that this isn’t meant as “why aren’t any of my plugins in the list.” I love all the plugins (I’ve gotten to know many of the developers behind the plugins while being part of a Beta where the first plugins got developed and think they deserve to be in this list). I’m just trying to gather feedback on my plugins and would be interested to know if there is any particular reason none of my plugins got listed (e.g., something I could do better) or if it’s just a “personal preference” kind of thing where the list shouldn’t contain endless plugins.

    Again, I can’t stress enough that this isn’t a “please add my plugin to the list” (in fact, I like the list to be kind of short to really emphasize the best ones) – I’m just trying to find out where my plugins can get better and the fact that they aren’t on the list means that you (possibly) have some reason(s) which I’d love to know and possibly improve upon.

    An answer (and if it is “I just don’t like your plugins” – I’m just trying to gather valuable feedback) would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you very much in advance,
    Best,
    Pablo Klaschka | Developer of Lorem Ipsum and Text Toolbox for Adobe XD

    1. Hello Pablo,

      during the research, I didn’t find any of your plugins. Thanks for sending them, I think Text Toolbox is a nice and helpful plugin and I will add it to the list. The Lorem Ipsum one, I find it too simple and it’s already integrated into the Text Toolbox.

      Thank you!

      1. Ah, ok. Thank you very much for answering and your feedback (as well as adding Text Toolbox to the list, of course). It is always good to get such feedback and I can now look into making my plugins easier to find (by the way: I absolutely agree about Lorem Ipsum being a bit simple – it was just to make it easier to find since people wouldn’t expect inserting placeholder text to be a part of such a “bundle” plugin).

        Again, thank you very much for responding,
        Best,
        Pablo
