Importing as Scenes

Import an artboard in Adobe XD as a scene in ProtoPie while keeping the same name. It's possible to import one or multiple artboards as scenes at once. Importing artboards as scenes is based on Adobe XD's layer hierarchy.

[object Object]
Importing Objects

Import objects with the same layer hierarchy, positioning, and constraints as in Adobe XD. It's possible to import one or multiple objects at once.

Components and component instances in Adobe XD are imported as containers. Convert them to components to keep them as components in ProtoPie. Learn more about components.

[object Object]
Importing as SVG

Import vector layers in Adobe XD as SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) in ProtoPie. To make their properties editable, just convert them to shapes after importing. ProtoPie does not support all SVG properties yet. Learn more about SVG layers.

Importing Text Layers

Import text layers in Adobe XD as SVG in ProtoPie. To make their properties editable, convert them to text layers after importing. Learn more about text layers.

ReImporting

Generally, reimported artboards and objects from Adobe XD would replace what was imported before. However, there are some exceptions to consider.

  • If you changed some properties of an imported object in ProtoPie, re-importing would not affect this particular object.
  • If you changed the layer hierarchy after importing, reimporting would not affect this adjusted layer hierarchy. For example, you added an imported layer to a newly created scroll container.
  • A deleted imported layer would not be reimported, unless you select only this specific layer in Adobe XD and import this into ProtoPie.
  • If you want to have duplicates of a scene or object, just import it once and duplicate it. For example, you want an artboard from Adobe XD as 2 scenes in ProtoPie. Import this once and duplicate the scene to create a second one.
