On July 17th, Adobe XD released a new update! One specifically, stroke enhancements, that I’m 👏SUPER👏 excited about, because I use that functionality all the time.
Since everyone basically reads in gifs nowadays rather than text, I thought I would explain via short clips to show what’s in the new update!
You can now add rounded corners and dashes to your strokes! YES!! There are 4 groups of stroke options that I’ve listed below. Here are a few gifs because that’s probably why you’re skimming this article:
Basic Stroke Options: size, gap, and dash
Centering Along the Line: inner, outer, and center. (In order to do this, the path has to be closed/connected.)
Cap Options: butt, round, projecting
Now you can label your assets in the assets panel to keep everything organized how you want it.
Items you can label: colors, character styles, and symbols
Other new features in assets include rollover tooltips and filtered search.
Third Party Integrations
XD now supports integration into Zeplin, Avocode, and Protopie on Windows (Mac was already available).
