Design Prototyping with Adobe XD Prototyping Designs in Adobe XD Adding Text

Eyedropper tool!? There's got to be a document colors tool right?

Sketch allows you to set document colors so they are always consistent. I think you can use the eyedropper in a pinch but it can be easy to get into trouble that way.

1-is there a place for document colors in AdobeXD? 2-if not I think it would be wise to make an artboard that has all the colors you use and use that as a pallet for the eyedropper. Doing the eyedropper on that text gave me anxiety, anyone else?

Document colors can be saved to your XD document's "Assets." To see your Assets, click the like box-icon thing in the lower-left corner of the window (above the Layers icon), or go to View > Assets. To add a color, use it somewhere, then right-click what you added it to and select "Add Color to Assets."
