How Do I Open Figma Files in Adobe XD?

Designers often find themselves in the predicament of having to open Figma files in Adobe XD. It can be a difficult task if you are unfamiliar with the process, but luckily there are ways to do it. Figma is a powerful design and collaboration tool while Adobe XD is a powerful UX/UI design platform.

The first step to opening Figma files in Adobe XD is to export the file as an SVG or PDF. Both of these formats are supported by Adobe XD and can easily be imported into the platform. To export as an SVG or PDF, simply click on ‘File’, then ‘Export’, and select either SVG or PDF from the drop-down menu.

Once your file is exported, open Adobe XD and select ‘File’ from the top menu bar. Then select ‘Import’ and choose either SVG or PDF from the file type options. You should now have access to your Figma file within Adobe XD.

Alternatively, you can also open your Figma file directly in Adobe XD without having to export it first. To do this, simply open your Figma file in the browser and select ‘File’, then ‘Export’.

In the export window, select ‘Adobe XD (.xd)’ from the drop-down list of available formats and click ‘Export’. Your Figma file will now be saved as an .xd file which can be opened directly within Adobe XD.

Opening Figma files in Adobe XD doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming if you know what steps to take. By following these simple steps you should have no trouble accessing any Figma projects in Adobe XD with minimal effort.

Conclusion: Opening Figma files in Adobe XD is not only possible but relatively straightforward too. Exporting as an SVG or PDF is one way of doing it, but for a more direct approach you can also export as an .xd file instead which can be opened within the program directly. With either method it’s easy enough to access any projects created in Figma within Adobe XD with minimal effort.
