  1. Create a design sheet with all assets used in XD.

    For example, all assets would easily be able to be exported to a simple design sheet where all of your used assets are laid out. This is helpful for design briefs and as a guide general branding cohesion.

    A design sheet I made in Ai is attached and reflects the type of output I am talking about.

  2. Export images as 9patch for Android

    Possibility to export png as 9patch images is very useful to deliver assets to developers correctly, specially when we design android apps.

  3. Add export to context menu on artboards

    Would it be possible to introduce a short-cut option (right-click on Mac) to export each page directly from an artboard?

  4. 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.

  5. Recursive exporting of all assets inside groups

    Is it possible to export all the assets in the art board embedded inside groups recursively.
    Example:

    Group1
    - asset 1
    - Group 1.1
    -asset 1.1.1
    -asset 1.1.2
    ......

    Expectation after export:
    asset1, asset1.1.1, asset1.1.2 (seperate files)

    currently once way to do this is to ungroup and export it.

  6. Covert text to paths when exporting svg

    • Text stays editable in the original document
    • I won't have to convert all texts to paths manually (which can be a lot of work)

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Export to BMP

    Next to work for web and apps, I also do work for custom interfaces. These interfaces lack support for png, jpg or svg. It would be great if the exporting of assets can also be done to a 'simple' bitmap.

    Right now my workflow is to use Illustrator for this, but this lacks the flexibility and simplicity of working in Adobe XD.

    My proposal for this would be:

    • Add a format option in the export dialog with BMP.
    • Add an extra option to choose the background color for all exported artboards, shapes or symbols.

  11. Show link to export folder, when export is complete

    I would like to see a link to my export folder (or open the export folder automatically) when my export is complete.

    It would optimize my workflow, since I use my exported assets immediately. F.ex. to use in invision etc... now I have to browse separately to the folder.

    Example:
    In Balsamiq a small link is shown "go there", in the confirmation message when my export is complete.

    other suggestion: maybe an additional checkbox in the export settings: "open folder when complete".

    It's a small feature, but every 10 seconds per export I can save, would make me happy :)

  12. 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().

    Hi,

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

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Add PDF margins on export

    I work for a large ad agency. Currently we design in InDesign and export a PDF with margins to route through the agency and to and from our large, lucrative client. The margins are essential because we annotate the files. The PDF goes from department to department where stakeholders comment. The PDF is created by the art dept and lands back there and comments are addressed after it makes it's rounds.

    We would need to be able to create margins on our PDF exports to hold the anotations in order to even consider using XD. I think that one tweak…

    Hi,

    Blur for the exported SVG will be implemented in a future version of XD. Will let you know once that is publicly available.

    Cheers,

  18. Export assets to an "asset" directory in the same location as the *.xd file

    the title says it all
    During export i don't want to be clicking and looking for the location of the export every single time.

    Please make a button that resets the export location to the location of *.xd file.

  19. 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)

    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:
