  1. Export Measurements for Developers

    Now that Adobe XD allows designers to measure all their elements. There's still the problem of having to deliver the design to the developers. They always require a spec sheet with the measurements. They don't want to download Adobe XD because they think it's hard to use, and would rather have a PDF opened instead.

    It would be great to have a feature where I can have the measurements present itself on the page when I export to PDF, instead of having to manually type in the measurements as well as drawing the lines between the elements of my app…

    • Export whole artboards (or entire project) as HTML

      It would be great to Export Prototypes as pure HTML Projects. I am working a lot on Multiscreen apps, where I mostly use Serveal Webcontainers Running on several Screens, to develop those Applications.

      • Global reusable text styles & export text style guide

        It would be useful to be able to label text styles as paragraph, h1, h2, link etc and then be able to export a text file that would include all of those styles to pass on to the developer

        • Copy CSS attributes

          • Copy from XD & paste into Illustrator (or Photoshop)

            For any given vector pieces, to be able to copy from XD and cut to illustrator. We can do it in the other way for now, but it would be great if it could work the other way too.

            To rework an icon for example, or trick an object with more advanced tools like in illustrator. Why ? It's faster than to export to svg and export it back again. It would also allow to keep your objects scaled the same way.

              When Creative Cloud support lands, you would be able to save assets to your CC Library (e.g. vectors, bitmaps), and open them in different tools (e.g. vectors in Illustrator, bitmaps in Photoshop), then save it back to your Library, updating all instances where they’re being used. Would that help your use case?

            • Psd export and multiple formats using Extract

              We need export as a Psd or export multiple formats or use Extract to transfer layout objects CSS to Dreamweaver like creative cloud extract.

              • Export to JPG (JPEG)

                We often send clients JPGs to show them the design, would be good to be able to export individual/all artboards (like in illustrator).

                  • Export interactive prototype as native mobile app (iOS, Android)

                    Hi,

                    I'm Head of Brand Management in a marketing department. And more and more often we need to make a simple app to our colleagues in sales. Very simple functionality but vital information. The problem is that our development department do not have time and recourses to help us doing the coding for us.
                    So basically my suggestions is quite simple: Why can't Adobe XD have a export or build function like nativ.com or Appy Pie where you can build an app without coding. I do my designs in XD, Photoshop etc. and I have a licens for Adobe CC…

                    • Export size options (e.g. export only 2x version)

                      The ability to select my sizes for export would be nice. At times I work on apps (as strange as it may sound) that do not require all resolutions of artwork (1x, 2x, 3x) An option to select my would be great. Similar to how Sketch handles it.

                          I’ve tweaked the title so it covers only exporting animation to GIF format. This will help keep our feature list fine-grained so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.

                          For the other formats that were originally mentioned here:

                        • Dedicated Export workspace to extract CSS styles, measurements, assets

                          It would be very useful having one more tab after Design and Prototype called "Export" for example. It would let developers easily see all the necessary information about any element like the size and color of the text, the size of a button and it's position on the screen, and so on, and then easily export any element. From there

                          • Export from XD to Sketch

                            Using XD currently, were other members in team are using sketch.
                            Not able to deliver required (sketch) file format to front end developers.

                            Frond end devs are using only sketch to read, since majority are using it.

                            Option to "export to sketch" would solve the file deliverable problem.

                            • Collect library of assets for export

                              Here my idea for exporting asset that I call Asset Mode.
                              Workflow:
                              1. Choose Assets you want to export in Design Mode by right click > Send to Assets
                              2. Switch to Asset Mode
                              3. Change wifth, heigh, position, background of assets
                              4. Choose scales (1x, 2x,...)
                              5. Export

                                • Export Xaml code for building Universal Windows Platform Applications (UWP)

                                  Help us quickly get from concept to working prototype for our Windows 10/HoloLens/WinPhone/Xbox apps by streamlining created content from XD to XAML.

                                  Add support for exporting (or copying to clipboard) XAML. Make it intelligent enough to convert things like repeat grids to GridViews.

                                  • Export styles of selection as CSS and copy/paste them into a code editor of choice

                                    This is not the same as exporting an entire artboard as HTML/CSS. Often when transforming design into HTML/CSS it can be handy to extract style information, piece by piece, from a design. Thus from a selection, rather than en entire artboard (though that would be cool as well). Beling able te extract style information as CSS from a selection (e.g. a selected text frame) and copy paste it into whatever code editor of choice would make XD such a powerful tool.

                                        Can you tell us more about how you’d like this to work? Do you want XD to export image assets and insert them directly into the correct folders/filenames in an existing Xcode project? Or do you want XD to generate Objective-C / Swift code to create a brand new Xcode project?

                                        Having an asset export panel similar to the new export panel in the updated Adobe Illustrator would be amazing...it's frustrating to have to choose each individual asset and export individually, naming each asset. Even if each asset that was grouped had a prefix name of the artboard it lived on plus the number asset - that would be a major step towards saving time (Example: the artboard name is ABOUT and all of the assets that are grouped that live on the ABOUT screen export as ABOUT_1.png, ABOUT_2.png, ABOUT_3.png, etc. And if an asset is copy/pasted from one artboard to…

                                            Just to clarify how it works currently – artboards in the PDF are currently listed based on looking at your artboard layout on XD’s canvas in “reading order." The PDF page order will start with artboards in the topmost row left to right, then move on to the next row of artboards below that (starting with the leftmost artboard again), etc.
