  1. Export Animated GIF

    Give option to select which screens to simulate/animate/and export, give exact width/height options, speed, then options per format, i.e for GIF will give GIF options, for AVI will give video options and thus ...

    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:

  2. Export to Dreamweaver

    A great feature would be to export a layout into a format that could be edited in Dreamweaver allowing us to create a layout or UI and then build a final producr straight off of that.

    This would speed up the design process and levels of productivity tremendously.

  3. 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)

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

    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.

  8. FTP support

    Please support FTP to a server on export.

    Hi Ruth,

    I understand what you are saying and thank you for the explanation.

    Cheers,

  10. Better PDF export options - color profiles and presets

    I would like to see the Illustrator export to PDF window, where you have presets and total control over the PDF creation.
    Right now I had a day work, exported it as PDF pages and was terrified by the colors and quality. Had to redo all the work in Illustrator again...

    So PDF export options and color profile choices.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Include Artboard title when printing to PDF

    I printed my PDF but it would be nice if I could have the option to include the Artboard title added to each one (sort of like the UI).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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. logo640.png, logo480.png...or...logo.png, logo@2x.png, etc.
