  1. Link color and type assets between documents

    Easiest way by far to share colors & text style across documents. Should work like symbols - update Master in Master doc, propagate changes from master to children

  2. Export/Downloading PNG/JPEG/SVG from Design Specs

    Often what happens is that Developers require some assets in either SVG format or any of the other image formats.

    Using Design Specs, exporting/downloading a specific icon/vector shape would help ease the asset transferring between Designers and Developers. This would also help maintain the right assets and share it with ease.

  3. Shared XD libraries

    Need to share Adobe XD assets library to other CC users. Not only Illustrator CC libraries, but XD colors/fonts/symbols lybraries. It's a must!

    Hi everyone,

    With XD May release, now you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    Please give it a try and let’s us know what you think

    To learn more about this feature check out:

  4. 1 click exporting of assets

    Currently if I design mobile app assets at 1x I have to rescale individual assets at different sizes to export them seperately per platform.

    I'd really like to see a one click export for both platforms from a 1x designed screen. 1x screesn are key when testing and there isn't an option setup a project at different scales.

    Majority of my assets are vector, especially for the all important app iconography.

    Photoshop has something like this at the moment be great to see something like this in XD.

    Thanks

    We currently have this feature built into the export in Adobe XD. You can export, select the device type, and then click on export for multiple versions. You can also now batch export by marking an asset or a group for batch export, then select Export > Batch.

  5. Export to JPEG @2x (JPG)

    The title says it. Since the original request for "Export to JPG" (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12942069-export-to-jpg) was completed, though not fully, I'm adding this request to add exporting of JPEG @2x resolution.

  6. Export single artboard as pdf

    Be able to pick a single (or multiple) artboard to export as pdf. Working with multiple artboards to show simple drop down executions and do not need them all exported together since then I have to go into Acrobat and delete pages.

  7. [Windows] name export svg

    It's cool that we now have the option of exporting SVG files with the february update - But unless I'm blind it does not seem like there is any option to name the file that one wants to export? It would be very nice if it was possible to choose a custom filename like "car.svg" rather than "Path 823.svg" for instance.

    You can now export to PDF in the Windows version of Adobe XD. To check out the latest version, go to the Creative Cloud desktop app! If you don’t see the update, you can select the gear and click on “Check for App Updates.”

  10. Export Artboards at a Device's True Resolution

    Artboards should export at the device's true resolution. iPhone 7 Plus should export at 1242x2208 and not the 414x870. Same with Android's 1080x1920 resolution.

    We should at least select the 3 times (3x) option when exporting. Artboards. The PDF option creates too many steps to create a PNG/JPG of an Artboard.

  11. Select which assets to include and exclude in an export

    Being able to choose which files to export and NOT export would be great. So that you can easily re-export all images of a UI without hand-picking every file you want to export. So a tag for include/exclude....(!) Should also work with groups so that groups of buttons and text can exclude the text in an export process.

    Hi,

    Starting with XD 4.0 you can mark for export individual assets and export them in a format of your choice. Marking can be done using the layers panel. After marking, you can select the following menu sequence File →Export→Batch or shortcut Shift + Cmd/Ctrl + E.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers,
    M.

  12. SVG Export Option: Convert Text to Curves

    XD is a great software to design digital assets with vector graphics and text. It would be perfect if text could be converted into curves when assets are saved as svg files for web.

    feature-completed  ·  Tom Krcha responded

    Hi Frank, we support this, go to Path → Convert to Path.
    Perhaps we need to make it more obvious.

  13. Exporting assets for iOS and Android

    When we have 25+ icons on the all artboards, we must have a command to export all the icons in one single click which will save a lot of time.

    Hi,

    Starting with XD 4.0, you can mark an object for export. You can then export all marked objects in a single operation using File → Export→ Export batch or shortcut Shift + Cmd/Ctrl + E.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers,

  14. Ability to name export file (not overwrite file)

    Unless I missed something, there is no way to name the new export, and it will use the .xd filename and add the relevant extension (PDF, etc...)

    Could we give it a different name so we don't have to overwrite, or create a subfolder?

    This is useful when exporting a subset of artboards from the same project.

  15. Export to PDF - Option for 2x Bitmaps inside (or don't downsample at all)

    Many times when exporting to PDF, while most assets may be vector there are some bitmap assets included (think a thumbnail image inside a UI)... while I have control over the pixel density at design time (I can use a larger bitmap and scale down) when I export, it always downsamples the image to 1x. Would be good to either downsample to 2x or not at all.

  16. Export Measurements for Developers

    Now that Adobe XD allows designers to measure all their elements. There's still the problem of having to deliver the design to the developers. They always require a spec sheet with the measurements. They don't want to download Adobe XD because they think it's hard to use, and would rather have a PDF opened instead.

    It would be great to have a feature where I can have the measurements present itself on the page when I export to PDF, instead of having to manually type in the measurements as well as drawing the lines between the elements of my app…

    We’ve released the Design Specs feature in our November release this week as a Beta. You can now publish a Design Spec directly from XD, and your developer can get measurements of objects by selecting the object from the detail view of the screen. We’re working on additional functionality for this feature and are looking for feedback, so please try it out and file new feature requests in this area against the Design Specs feature area.

    Thanks,

    -Elaine

  17. Copy from XD and paste as a raster image (bitmap) in other app

    This is straight taken from my Sketch workflow. In Sketch, when you copy an artboard, the pastable asset is a raster version of your artboard. This allows to quickly paste a work in progress to a Trello card or Slack channel/conversation. This also negates having to export an asset for nothing, saving time and reducing project clutter in general.

    As of now,

  18. XD file shared to Creative Cloud is not very useful yet

    When your XD file synces automatically to CC Cloud files it is in a unreadable format. Taking up space while unusable. Please fix this or just don't have them sync. I realize easier to share on another computer with XD on it but I don't think it should be the default to automatically share unless it shared as a JPEG at the very least.

  19. Click and drag to import individual assets from Ps & Ai

    Just the ability to be able to click and drag a layer or object across in Xd would be class.

    In the latest version of Adobe XD it is now possible to drag & drop layers from Photoshop into XD to import them. (You can also copy-paste).

    You can copy-paste individual assets from Illustrator into Adobe XD, though you can’t drag & drop them.

    That seems like enough to call this feature completed now. Please let us know if I’ve misunderstood what you’re asking for, though.

  20. Copy from XD & paste into Illustrator (or Photoshop)

    For any given vector pieces, to be able to copy from XD and cut to illustrator. We can do it in the other way for now, but it would be great if it could work the other way too.

    To rework an icon for example, or trick an object with more advanced tools like in illustrator. Why ? It's faster than to export to svg and export it back again. It would also allow to keep your objects scaled the same way.
