Color Transparency should reflect in the color value code
I choose a blue, then change the transparency to 50%; that is no longer blue, it is now a very very very light blue; I would like to see the value of that; otherwise there's no point in using XD to create color palettes, as I can't document the value other the saying something like " #245D97 @ 50% transparency"
Thanks for your feature request. Unfortunately, transparency is a critical part of ensuring that developers understand what should be opaque vs. transparent. If you’d like to copy the actual value without transparency, you can draw a new object and use the eyedropper to sample your completed color to get an opaque version of it for your color palette.

Some Guy Online, I just encountered the same problem (if I understood it correctly) and think I might have the solution.
So the transparency can be set in 2 different ways. It can be set under "Appearance" in the panel on the right, above the colour pickers or it can be set within the colour picker on the right-most slider. (Click "fill" and set the transparency in the new window)
If the transparency was set in the first way, under appearance - eye dropping this item will also eyedrop the transparency. I.e. the HEX code will be the same as in the original item.
If the transparency was set within the colour picker window, and you eyedrop this item, the new item will have a new hex code, but no transparency.
I wouldn't say this was very intuitive, I just randomly noticed it. Hope it was understandable and that it helps someone ;-)
