Make XD useful in production workflow
Are there any plans to integrate XD into a real production workflow? I thought that would be the goal when XD was released, but it continues to simply be a "closed loop" system.
We've been using Photoshop/Illustrator/Dreamweaver/InDesign (less so)/Muse (ugh!) to make websites and apps for quite a while now, but this is inefficient to say the least. Photoshop isn't well suited to variable width (non-pixel-perfect) design, Illustrator is not great at interactivity, InDesign is simply not designed for digital publishing (imo), and Muse....oh Muse (ugh, again).
I feel like XD could be used to build an interface and export those assets straight to CSS/JS digestible by Dreamweaver/Brackets (etc) without too much work on the back-end. As is, it is basically an Axure/Balsamiq clone.
Those apps (Axure/Balsamiq) are great for prototyping an interface, but it doesn't seem like any of them are going to "break the glass ceiling" and adapt themselves to a real production workflow. Adobe could be way ahead of the curve on this! Wouldn't that be a nice change?
We’ll pass your feedback along to the XD team.
