  2. Ability to paste objects copied from XD as SVG code to Text Editor

    In previous versions of Adobe XD we were able to past the SVG code of an object copied from XD to text editor like Visual Studio Code. But now this feature is not working. When I copy an object from XD with Ctrl+C and paste it to text editor with Ctrl+V nothing happens. Can you please restore this behavior as it was before.

    OS: Windows 10
    XD Version: 29.2.32

  3. Export to PDF in order to Artboard Z-index

    currently export to PDF is can only be sorted by the left-right, top-down arrangement. Often there are usecases to arrange your artboards in an arrangment other than left-right, top-down, and so would need some other arbitrary way to choose the order of artboards to pages in a PDF. The Artboards panel already can be sorted arbitrarily, so would be a natural fit, if a user could export to PDF with an option to use the order it appears in the Artboards list, and this would also mirror the behavior in Illustrator and Fireworks.

  4. Exported artboard file name

    When exporting "single" selected artboard, I would like to have a control over the exported artbard file name.

    Now, each time I am exporting new artboard version, I am forced to create a separate folder.

    I also export the same artboard few times in a row to present some idea but with different visibility of individual artboard element. Creating folder each time for such export is a nightmare.

  6. Rename file name while exporting

    Its always troublesome for me since I do multiple versions or corrections. It always replaces the existing files. To rename I have to totally change the xd project file name. It will be easy to rename while exporting to PDF.

  8. Export artboard as high quality image(s)

    This was previously suggested but it seemed like it needed to be reposted (if not, feel free to delete this request).

    Outside of maybe SVG for obviously (?) reasons, the exported file looks pixelated. The exports do not look presentable--I've been better off with screenshots but screenshots are screenshots. I would love if this request gets a second look.

  9. Option to exclude artboard background color/layers on export

    Sketch includes a cool feature which let you have a background color on your artboard (like the fill setting on artboards in XD), but it also has a setting to Include or not this color on the export. (see attached screenshot)

    This let us define a background color to work on our design, like when we design an icon, but when exporting the background is transparent.

    This could be expanded to layers by adding a setting "Include in export" checked by default, so we can filter layers when exporting. As an example, when designing an app icon, i could add…

  10. Export: PNG 8 and PNG8 with alpha channel

    Would like support for PNG8 and PNG8 with alpha channel. (as an example, I exported a single asset from XD and it came in at 4 K. I took that same asset and opened it in fireworks, and exported as PNG 8 with not loss of quality and it exported at 1.5 KB... this becomes even more useful with larger assets or sprite sheets where the difference could be between 400 KB vs 150 KB.

  11. Animation specs

    Developers use educated guess work when it comes to making animations based on designs.

    Just like normal design specs, we need animation specs to be able to hand off design that contain motion and transition information. a way to clarify animation and eliminate guess work for developers.

  12. Choose whether to default mark to export

    Add the ability to control the entire document export of assets and/or instead of defaulting to "mark for export" leave the checkbox empty.

    Please STOP making decisions for us and let us choose how we want to use XD (The same goes for saving everything in the cloud by default).

  13. Mark symbol for export, not individual layer

    Current functionality is to mark a layer for batch export, which works, but is kind of odd when a symbol is used in multiple places (marking a random one for export feels sort of odd and hard to trace), and when in a repeat grid, for example, marks each instance in the repeat grid for export (meaning duplicates of the same asset in the design spec).

    It would make more sense from my end to be able to mark a symbol for export as well, that way the mental model is more system-oriented, and allows for one place to handle…

  14. Export jpeg for iOS and Android

    For mobile apps Design we need light weight for the assets we export on the stores ( play store / app store ). So actually we only export in PNG for android and iOS. The result when I export a Picture, my PNG is for example 1Mo if Adobe XD have the possibility to export in jpeg my @2x @3x pictures will be 0,1Mo.
    Because when our app is to heavy on the store you loose some customer, downloading is too long...
    So please, could you implant that point and quality export select like photoshop or illustrator.

  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.

  17. Export confirmation message when done, option to open folder

    When exporting one or more artboards, there is a message shown at the top indicating the process. (with an X to cancel it)

    After it's done, however, there is no confirmation of the success (other than the absence of an error message), and there is no way to quickly open the containing folder for the export result.

    It would be really useful and handy to get a confirmation message along the lines of "(#) Artboards Exported successfully. [Open folder]" at the top afterwards — especially because XD doesn't use the native Mac windowing system, thus we don't have access to easily…

  18. Design for one Platform export for multiple platforms (Example: iOS icons/designs to android sizes)

    We do design in iPhone 5 size that 320x568 and we have script for illustrator, which will give export GUI, where we can select export size options for both iOS, android and web sizes. This way we don't have to design icons separately for other platforms. Have attached screenshots for reference, there you can see option to set base frame size used to design this will do the calculations in background and will export scaled icons for other selected sizes.

  19. 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.

  20. Export SVG with artboard boundary, without transform

    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().

    Mihnea Ovidenie responded

    Hi,

    Can you give us more details about your workflow and how the transform impacts you?

    Cheers,
    M.
