10 AdobeXD Shortcuts You Need To Know About

Our design team lives in Adobe. We use InDesign for our print work, Illustrator for our logos and Premiere to edit videos. We were delighted when Adobe released XD, a way to design websites that enabled them to come to life. With this platform, we can visualise and present a design all in one place. It allows us to link pages together to simulate the navigation and flow of a site in a way that wasn’t possible before.

As we spend so much time in XD,  we’ve got to know it pretty well. Shortcuts make everything go more smoothly and keep our design process quick! Here are the ones we use every day, and the ones our team find the most useful
