  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.

    • Extract / Export CSS for development feature

        • 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.

              • 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)

                • Export to iOS and Android simultaneously

                  Right now, if I have an icon that I need to export for both iOS and Android, I have to run through the export process twice. It would be nice if "Export for" was a multi-select checkbox instead of a radio button.

                            Currently when you export a PDF with the same name as an already opened previous version, it wont say what is wrong. Would be nice if they fix this!

                            • Artboards

                              When you export icons to SVG format, you need artboard to fit the illustrations for clear SVG code. Like Adobe Illustrator.

                              Now XD adds superfluous information like transform().

                              • 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?

                                    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?

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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…
