Hey designers! Adobe has announced some exciting new updates to two of their designer-focused tools, Project Felix and Adobe XD. They’ve taken feedback from beta testers to improve key features that will make your workflow even easier. What do you think of their latest updates?
Project Felix Highlights
“Based on feedback from users of the Project Felix beta, a tool made for graphic designers to composite 2D and 3D assets, Adobe has updated the beta to include a number of new features and enhancements, including:
- Render progress – A progress bar is now displayed during rendering along with an elapsed time counter.
- Drag and drop import – You can now import models and images from the desktop or an open explorer window.
- Height indicator – When transforming a selection, you can now see a height indicator, which displays the distance between the reference point and the ground plane.”
Adobe XD Highlights
- “Resolve comments on Shared Prototypes – With this release, Adobe XD allows users to better manage incoming feedback by adding the ability to resolve comment threads, improving the flow of feedback for designers’ workstreams.
- Copy & paste from Photoshop and Illustrator – Users can quickly bring assets to Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC on Windows 10.
- Other new features on Windows 10 include Zoom, Align to Pixel Grid and Aspect Ratio Lock.”
