  1. Maintain creation order of artboards when exporting to pdf

    Artboard export to pdf is currently top left to bottom right. When linking to the PDF from InDesign this may mess up the links if artboards are rearranged or added later.

    An option to change this behavior to be closer to Illustrator would fix this issue. I.e. export in order of creation.

    Unless there is another way to reference XD files from within InDesign?

    • Export into Android or iOS layout

      It sounds redudant to me to design a prototype and recreating the actual work based on prototype.

      It cost more time and money, especially on a simple project with short deadline.

      So why dont this app support exporting layout into android xml layout or xcode for iOS? and html/css/js for the web of course.

      I know building a working app within Adobe XD is out of the scope of the application itself as prototyping tool, so at least please support exporting the design into these app builder such as android studio and xcode

      Thanks in advance

            Thanks for your suggestion! Corey has added some comments to the request which have an explanation of how to get higher resolution exports. Can you please check that out and give us feedback on what more you’d like?

            • Better export options for graphics with effects

              If I, say, create a round icon at 150px without any detail such as a drop shadow or glow, it will happily export at 150px.

              However, this size is increased on export with the addition of a drop shadow or glow detail etc. For example, to 168px. (The same principle would effect a shape or text element.) Currently, using the same 150px icon with drop shadow example, the asset size on the artboard does not take this into account, but still shows as overall size as 150px, even though exporting increases this.

              It would be useful to have an option…

              • Framer.js support

                Title speaks for itself. I realize this is a feature request that should be forwarded to the framer.js team as well. An alternate solution would be scripting support with coffeescript or jquery.

                • Export Illustrator file

                  A client is requesting to have assets in Illustrator format. Basically, I want to be able to export from XD as an Illustrator file with the options to save images as linked or embedded. This is similar to the SVG export option, except that SVG I think has a file size limit of about 15 MB. When I export as an SVG at a large size, XD fails. Exporting as Illustrator with supported text boxes (not breaking them into individual text lines and not outlining the text either. Just easy and editable from XD to Illustrator. XD export as SVG…

                    Hi,

                    I would like to understand more about the limitation of the export as SVG as i am not aware of any limit. Are you talking about a limit in the application that consumes the SVG, like a browser or Illustrator?

                    In general, if you choose to export with embedded images, the size of SVG will become large and it will be hard to process it in other application.

                    Cheers,
                    M.

                      • PDF Bookmarks named with the Artboard Titles

                        When exporting artboards to a PDF, the artboard title should be included in some way.

                        I think this could be as simple as creating a bookmark for each artboard.

                        • Disable IDs in SVG export

                          I'm a frontend developer and we export SVG's to use them inline in our HTML.

                          When you export an SVG (non-minified) you will see that all your paths/polygons etc. have id's attached to them. To avoid having multiple ID's it would be great if you can turn this off.

                          I noticed that the minified export does this however it would be great if you can also do this for non-minified versions, since sometimes we still have to edit the SVG a bit, or add custom classes/id's when manipulating elements within the SVG.

                          • Export SVG With Inline Styles

                            If you'll use exported SVG graphics as a code embedded into your HTML (but not as an external .svg image) you encounter CSS issues.
                            The problem is in <style></style> which you generate on SVG export. Every path in SVG has its class name and they all are named like "a", "b", "c" etc… (image 1 attached)
                            1. These classes may cause conflict with existing classes, in case I already have "a", "b", "c" classes in my HTML.
                            2. These classes will interfere styles of other SVGs exported from XD and embedded on the page.

                            Solution:
                            Remove classes and generate inline…

                              • Export: Customize File Names and Structures

                                On export, bring up a dialog that allows you to customize size and naming scheme for each file and save that as a template/preference. Not everyone wants to follow the Android directories. So it would be nice if we could export images into one directory with names (e.g. logo_640.png, logo_480.png...or...logo.png, logo@2x.png, etc.

                                • Export on drag out of layers panel

                                  I’d love to be able to drag individual (or more at the same time) selected artboards and groups from the Layers panel out of XD, making it export as PNGs.

                                  That way I can quickly share my designs with other people – drag and drop to Slack, email, messages etc., similar to how in Sketch you can drag the little previews from the right panel.

                                  • Save export location with file

                                    Currently the default location to export your assets is the last location used. I work in several different projects throughout the day and need to export to different locations. It would be great if the default location for exporting assets stayed with the individual XD file instead of being system wide.

                                    • Export assets for UWP apps

                                      Are there plans to add export presets for UWP apps? UWP assets are required to be 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x, and 4x. There also needs to be a filename suffix (*.scale-100.png, *.scale-125.png, *.scale-150.png, *.scale-200.png, and *.scale-400.png).

                                      Ideally this would be added as an option in addition to the current presets (Web, iOS, Android, UWP). Alternatively, you can allow users to make their own presets (like Sketch recently did).

                                      Thanks for considering.

                                      • Preserve element name as ID name on SVG export

                                        We use the SVG output of AdobeXD to build our websites faster. But the only problem is the lack of meaningful names of the SVG elements in the exported file. It should be very helpful to name any element or group inside AdobeXD and preserve that name as svg id when exporting to svg. Including color and gradient names, repeaters names and interactive click spots.

                                        • Remember previously exported objects

                                          If you've changed numerous assets you should be able to hit export and by default it will reexport them all to the same location as before, like Sketch's "Make Exportable" feature.
