Help, support and more
for my plugins for Adobe XD

General help

If you have any issues with one of my plugins, please take a look at the support material provided on this page. If you don't find an answer to your question, feel free to use the form on the right to contact me directly, and I'll try my best to help you.

Installing a plugin

There are two main ways to install a plugin:

  • Via the Adobe XD discover plugins panel: The most comfortable and most secure way to install a plugin can be found directly in Adobe XD itself.
    Just open the "Discover plugins" panel (Plugins > Discover Plugins...), search for the plugin you want to install and click the "Install" button.
  • By downloading the plugin: Alternatively, you can download the plugin from this website directly. Then, you can just double-click the .xdx file and follow the instructions provided in Adobe XD to install the plugin.
    Please note that while I – of course – don't distribute any malware, there is always a (minimal) chance a file from this website could be corrupted (e.g., if someone would gain access to this Website). Therefore, I for security purposes recommend using the first way to install a plugin.

FAQs

Can I use custom (user-defined) placeholder texts?

Unfortunately, this is not supported at this point in time. However, this is high on my list of feature requests and should be available soon.

Is this the same as the placeholder text functionality in the Text Toolbox?

Yes and no. It uses the same technology, and updates get included in the Text Toolbox. However, the "standalone" Lorem Ipsum plugin for Adobe XD provides some more features like presets easily accessible from the plugin's menu or an option to skip the dialog and use the previously used settings to insert text.

FAQs

What do the characters on the buttons (Q, W, E, etc.) mean?

The characters visible on each button show keyboard shortcuts that can be used to quickly access a function (e.g., you can press Q in the main dialog to easily adjust the height of a text area).

Can I adjust the keyboard shortcuts the plugin uses?

Unfortunately, this is not supported at the moment. However, I'm aware that this is a feature that would be useful and therefore, it'll hopefully be available soon.

I tried the "Copy HTML" feature, and the generated code looks completely different than my prototype

This is to be expected since this feature generates HTML markup for your selected layers (e.g. for your texts) but doesn't generate a "ready to use" website (this is neither the goal nor a possibility). The feature aims to make going from design to frontend code a bit easier, not to automate frontend development.

The generated HTML code isn't correct.

Since this feature is currently in an experimental stage, issues can occur. Please feel free to send me a message if you find any bugs. However, please also note that this feature isn't meant as a "copy and paste" solution – you'll always have to check and correct the code manually. It is merely intended to make going from a high fidelity prototype including text to frontend development quickly.
