I have a super easy hack to import a file from Figma to Adobe XD without having to pay for a plugin. The first thing you need to do is have your Figma file open. Select the one or multiple frames. Then go over to the Design, prototype, and inspect (right sidebar). Scroll down to the section where it says “Export” and click the plus + sign next to it. It opens a panel that have different file options to export. You choose SVG and then click the box with the 3 horizontal dots (export settings). Make sure the option for “Outline Text” isn’t checked. That will keep your file editable in Adobe XD. The, next step is to export it to your computer. If you have a lot of files you’re exporting, make yourself a file on your desktop (or other section of your computer) to save those exported files from Figma. Once you’ve exported all your files from Figma, open Adobe XD and make yourself a new file. Then, it’s as easy as copy and pasting that SVG file or using import (⇧⌘I). You then can make a new artboard around the file you just imported and do any editing and prototyping in Adobe XD. The cool part is your text is all editable and you have all your layers and the whole frame or file from Figma for FREE.
