☝️To be able to export designs from Adobe XD to Zeplin, you need to have the desktop app installed on your computer.

When you have the latest versions of both Adobe XD and Zeplin installed, you will see a new menu item in the Export menu of Adobe XD. Follow these steps below to export a layer or artboard from Adobe XD to Zeplin.

  1. Select any layer/artboard in your XD.
  2. Select “File > Export > Zeplin”.

The shortcut for the last used export option is ⌥⌘E. So, next time you want to export designs to Zeplin, simply select the artboards and press Option, Command, E.

☝️ Use Ctrl + Alt + E on Windows.

This will take you to Zeplin where you select the project you want to export the artboards to. Designs are now live on Zeplin, along with all the specs, assets and code snippets that developers can make use of.

☝️ It's sadly not possible to import XD files directly into Zeplin just yet. You can only export your designs from the Export menu of Adobe XD.

Zeplin shows the file location on the right panel of the screen if you're the user who exported that screen and you're using the same machine that you used to export. You can directly open the design file in XD by clicking on the file name.
