Review answers

  1. The types of asset files you can import into Adobe XD are SVG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF.

  2. When dragging an image you can press the Command (macOS) or Ctrl (Windows) key to temporarily disable snapping.

  3. If you find the need to replace an image, you can do so by dragging an image from your desktop onto an existing image to replace it.

  4. In Adobe XD, you can easily hide portions of images or shapes (paths) using two different methods: mask with shape or image fill. Masks are nondestructive, which means that nothing that is hidden by the mask is deleted.

  5. There are several ways to bring content from Illustrator into Adobe XD: copy and paste, export from Illustrator and import into XD, or drag and drop from Illustrator into XD. Note that you currently cannot import native Illustrator files (AI files) into Adobe XD.

  6. Text at a point begins where you click and expands as you enter characters. Each line of text is independent—the line expands or shrinks as you edit it but doesn’t wrap to the next line unless you add a paragraph return or a soft return. Text in an area uses the boundaries of an object to control the flow of characters. When text reaches a boundary, it automatically wraps to fit inside the defined area.
