Why assets inside components aren't available to download?
We need all assets inside any state of a component to be available to be downloaded.
Right now: Assets inside component states are not available to download, only assets inside the default state are available.12 votes
Thanks for your feedback! Assets inside of states can now be downloaded from design specs. Please republish your design specs to access this feature!
How can we export Hover states to development?
In the specs there is only one state in the component. How will development see all states?405 votes
This is now available for you in today’s release of XD 34. You will need to re-publish your design specs to access component states.
I can't get style dictionary working in VS Code when compiling or editing a DSP on my mac. I just get an 'error generating tokens'. I've clicked install on the XD DSP plugin when prompted, and I've also tried installing via amp install, but no luck.1 vote

Show layout grids on artboards when in development mode - how this feature (https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/inspect-design-specs.html#Viewandinspectlayoutgridproperties) was removed as a feature with update 24.x boggles me...46 votes
We’ve returned this in the January version of XD. You may need to republish with layout grids turned on in order to get this option to show up again.
There has been a recent change to the share for Dev view. We relied on that view to express flows. Now it is in a grid similar to Zeplin. I get the change, but not the removal. It would be great to be able to switch between the two. This way individual assets are still quickly accessed and the flow can also be expressed. Our devs were looking at the linking and able to view the overall flow. This was determined to be extremely helpful.88 votes
I've used this functionality with Zeplin, and it's considerably useful for a Developer to know if that element should integrate it as a reusable component or just as a specific element of a page (and also know where it comes from and on which pages it's currently being used)4 votes
Thanks for your feedback! There’s actually a section in the design spec that calls out the fact that it’s a component. I’ve attached an animated GIF to explain how it shows up.
Please create the option to download assets as JPGs from design specs. As of right now, there are only options to download as PNG or PDF. JPG seems pretty odd to exclude. Additionally, it would be great if you could have the ability to control your batch export preferences.199 votes
This is now available in the latest version of XD! Make sure you republish before accessing the design spec to access this feature.
It's great to have the component at last. But now I need to communicate the component name with the developers. for example: the values of a certain text are not interesting - they only need to know its class (is it H1, H2...?)
Swatches already have the name (only on hover, why?) in the specs, so it's obvious you did recognise the need for that.49 votes
You can now access component names or tokens in the shared Design Specs links in the latest release of Adobe XD. Refer to this link for more details: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/user-guide.html/xd/help/create-design-tokens-in-XD.ug.html
Encourage you to check it out and let us know if you have any feedback?
When you are working with many different fonts it's handy to name them to keep check of what you are working with. However when uploading the design specs to hand over to the developer, it lists the font styles WITHOUT the custom names.
Please can you upload the style names too?80 votes
Nothing more complected simply add Extract css from design as given in illustrator its very important other wise now day's it's simple to design in XD and very difficult to Develop application from xd assets because of no css export option in it, Please include this.693 votes
With the August 2019 release, we’ve enabled the ability for developers to copy css attributes from design specs links.
Thanks for the support and keep the feedback coming on how we can further deliver more value through such code snippets in XD
If I make derivative files from a file that was already shared as a specs link all derivatives will have the same title on the shared specs screen.
Confusing to devs and clients and a common use case when working on products.1 vote
Closing this as already in the product as per the OP :) Thanks for getting back to us!
If I started prototyping and publish design specs without the prototype linking all the screens the design spec shows only the screens that are linked in the prototype. The specs link doesn't get updated even if I remove all the links.370 votes
In today’s release (XD 27), you can now unset the home artboard in Prototype Mode, which will then publish all of your artboards to your link.
currently, you can only rename a component in list view. This should also be available in icon view6 votes
When on the smaller screens (desktop and mobile) the Asset panel takes up a large space of the screen. Create possibility to collapse and open this, or make more mobile friendly.
To be able to use to whole screen to only view the artboard, click on elements and see their specs on mobile and have space to create comments.4 votes
This is now available in the latest design specs links published from XD 21.0 onwards.
On the design specs mode, I should be able to direct developers to where a specific asset is. Sometimes I want to attach a link to an asset (if it's common use, a logo hosted on S3 for an example), sometimes the dev needs to be able to download the asset (be it an image already scaled to 1x, 2x, etc or the code of an SVG to embed into a page) and the third case is that I need to attach some free text (for example a path on our local server or the icon code on font awesome fa-camera).

With XD’s 11.0 release (which happened moments ago), we’ve made this feature live.
You can now save time and give developers the ability to extract and download assets from Design Specs. Mark layers as assets for export and send as a Design Specs link. Developers can download all the assets in the file format they need
As always, please do let us know about what you think of this feature and feel free to log the improvements that you’d like to see in this workflow as new requests at https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests?category_id=323330
Great to see design specs working! Will add some ideas for it here. The first of them is:
As a designer, I need to send to developers a link with the working prototype and another with the design specs. Would be great if I could share a single link and design specs and prototype worked as tabs on that page.107 votes
This is now available in the latest design specs links published from XD 21.0 onwards.
Now you can share a single design specs link with developers that includes both prototypes interactions and design specs. This saves your developers time as well as enable you to better communicate your design intent.
I'd love to see a way for for Enterprise customers whose companies have chosen not to permit sharing to be able to take advantage of the Design Specs feature. We need a way to export a local file that shows the specs that we can share on our internal, private networks. Without this, your largest customers are still left drawing design specs by hand.105 votes
We seem to have missed marking this done when it was actually completed! For those enterprise customers who have sharing disabled, you can now work with your CSM to enable local publish. Please note that none of the services will be connected, which means that you will not be able to comment.,
Hard to view specifications of every element in a group/layer. For developers it seems better not to group anything, so they can view every item and layer (like overlays, highlighted text, etc.). But even then one cannot see all colors of the layers in one element (when you show different states of button, you add a 30% black overlapping layer on top of a color). A solution would be to show all layers, and make them selectable.33 votes
We’ve now introduced right-click as well as ability to hold CMD to drill down on layers. With these two features, one can select any layer in the artbaords that you are inspecting
When the developer clicks an element, the layer name is not shown. Today he can only see the type of that layer ("Rectangle", "Text", "Group", etc). If the layer name was shown the designers could append information on that layer like the asset name or the color variable that should be used on that element.69 votes
Whenever, you click on a layer in design specs, the layer type and name are displayed in the Design Specs properties inspector
For an example, when I have some bold text inside a paragraph, the design specs for that paragraph should state that not only that text is Arial 12px but also has some bold inside.45 votes
