  1. CONVERT TO CODE

    We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.

      Hi, all-

      “Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.

        • Better svg export

          Adobe Creative Design supports svg export which is great, but the resulting svg is a little bit suboptimal. For example, if i create a simple circle, give it a stroke-width of 4 with some color and a fill
          the resulting svg contains a group element containing 2 circles, one with a fill and the other with a stroke.

          It would be great if the exported svg could be cleaner. I attached some sample files. the "_exported.svg" is the file exported from Adobe XD, the "_edited.svg" contains the svg, which yields the same result but is cleaner.

          A cleaner svg would…

            Hi,

            The feature that allows you to control the position of stroke: inside/center/outside was started and it will be available in the future versions of Adobe XD. Will let you know once the feature becomes available.

            Cheers,
            M.

          • Export to JPEG @2x (JPG)

            The title says it. Since the original request for "Export to JPG" (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12942069-export-to-jpg) was completed, though not fully, I'm adding this request to add exporting of JPEG @2x resolution.

            • 1 click exporting of assets

              Currently if I design mobile app assets at 1x I have to rescale individual assets at different sizes to export them seperately per platform.

              I'd really like to see a one click export for both platforms from a 1x designed screen. 1x screesn are key when testing and there isn't an option setup a project at different scales.

              Majority of my assets are vector, especially for the all important app iconography.

              Photoshop has something like this at the moment be great to see something like this in XD.

              Thanks

                  • Allow users to change/customize the name of export files

                    I tend to work on screen flows from a single XD document but like to break them up into smaller/separate documents when exporting as .pdf for my developers. Right now I cannot name it something different while saving (I can only change the save location). This lack of renaming is true for all the exportable file types and should be added.

                    • The possibility to export to well-formed adobe PSD with vector svg-shapes

                      I have the full subscription to all Adobe Cloud features and applications.

                      The possibility to export to well-formed adobe PSD with vector svg-shapes.

                      That all has been already realized in other successful 3d-party projects, so why not it can be logically realized in Adobe XD?

                      It's really pity that it has not been realized yet in a proper way :(

                      • Retina format option

                        Hi Adobe!

                        Actually we have 2 options to export our assets of a desktop design:
                        The "design" mode or the "web" mode with a x2. The thing is that this both formats have the same size!

                        The quality is not good and I need a Retina format (a REAL x2 size) to export in better quality.
                        So for a picture 100x120px, I have to export in 200x240px to preserve a good quality. After that, the developers reduce the size by 2 BUT the quality is really better.

                        Retina format is now a really needed feature to produce high quality websites.

                            • Export to BMP

                              Next to work for web and apps, I also do work for custom interfaces. These interfaces lack support for png, jpg or svg. It would be great if the exporting of assets can also be done to a 'simple' bitmap.

                              Right now my workflow is to use Illustrator for this, but this lacks the flexibility and simplicity of working in Adobe XD.

                              My proposal for this would be:

                              - Add a format option in the export dialog with BMP.
                              - Add an extra option to choose the background color for all exported artboards, shapes or symbols.

                              • Separate Quality Settings for 1x and 2x JPEG Export

                                2x JPEGs typically should be compressed more than 1x JPEGs, so being able to individually set quality would be extremely useful, otherwise I have to do two separate exports (each with a different quality) and merge the results.

                                • Colour management

                                  Final designs will be included in design manuals. As such the pdf export from XD provides high quality vector assets. Missing hovever is embedded ICC data.

                                  This means that for the unaware designer colours will shift when included in design manuals or other non sRGB contexts. This seem to be an oversight as the sRGB colour profile is embeded in png files exported for "design".

                                    • Export as...

                                      Please consider an 'Export as..' feature the same way we have a 'Save as..' feature.
                                      Right now our options are to rename an artboard or replace existing assets.

                                        • Render the artboard background color behind the assets when exporting to JPG

                                          Exporting assets (like a row of buttons) as JPG turns the transparent space to white - it should change it to the artboards background colour (or even better, give the user the option to use the background colour or not)
