  1. 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.

        • 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?

          • Export to After Effects to add animation

            The best animation tool... gotta communicate with AE like PS

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                        • 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.

                            • 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

                                  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:

                                • PDF Export - compression options to reduce file size

                                  Exported PDF are too big. Please add compression options like InDesign.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                        • XD export feature to xCode

                                          Add xCode export to the list of functions... great for informative apps

                                            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?
