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.

@creativecloud @AdobeXD @Adobe @AdobeCare Hey Guys. I want to share one important request of mine. please please add function of export xd artboard to Sketch file format fully editable. please it is most important thing to be upgrade. thanks I hope you guys will take my words ?
It would be great to heave this option. But until than Export as SVG from XD than import them in Sketch ;).
Till today no news sadly. XD2Sketch paid version without any alternative.... frustrating.
Much needed and it opens up for third parties to charge $$$ for a simple feature such as "save as" ....
I'm being forced to learn and use software that will soon be redundant due to the machine that is Adobe Creative Cloud. I am an expert user in Illustrator and XD and am dismayed that I have to use inferior software to appease my new employers. XD export to sketch would solve this. Don't make me jump ship!
This is really frustrating!
Loss of time whenever I need to send a file to a dev or to my teammates.
Front devs are mostly using Sketch nowadays and we aren't able to send them our correct files simply because Adobe refuses to open the road the other way around...
Using third party apps such as XD2Sketch is costly while this would solve the issue.
While all the other app form the CC suite allow you to export to other softwares, why isn't XD doing the same?
This feature is seriously lacking at the moment.
XD2Sketch does the work but I don't want to pay for it whenever I have to send over a file.
The svg. thing doesn't even come close to make it work for people opening the file in sketch
COME ON Adobe! We need this feature !

The possibility to export XD files to Sketch would be great and highly needed!
The current situation represent countless hours re-creating files for Sketch and therefore a massive waste of time.
XD2sketch is a great alternative but extremely expensive if you're to use it every now and then.
This feature SHOULD BE available within XD.
I like working with XD but not everyone in my network works with it but I can't switch to Sketch.
Once again Adobe isn't listening to their customers and that is seriously making me consider switching to Affinity Figma etc.
We need this adobe! Even though I doubt adobe will add this feature soon, since it's pretty much going to help users migrate to an other platform away from theirs. Why would they put time and resources into this? If anything we should maybe also start asking sketch to add an import function to work directly with the sketch app?
What do you guys think?
Let me know.
Kevin here the founder of XD2Sketch. The paragraph below only applies to PUBLIC content. The data you upload isn't public by any means and hence this paragraph does not apply. We DO NOT have any rights in the files you upload and we DO NOT share it with any 3rd parties neither do we monetize on that end. We monetize on pay-per-use and thats the end of the story. Hope that helps!
+1 for this feature
Juste checked XD2sketch, BE CAREFUL to the files you upload there.
I checked the terms of service, and if I understand correctly by uploading you give them the right to use your file as they want.

Lunacy didn't work for me. Used XD2Sketch as well.
+1 I really need this feature. I prefer XD over Sketch but it's true that many other developers only use Sketch for various reasons and a exporter would be really helpful
You can use Lunacy https://icons8.com/lunacy
It Inport and Export to Sketch
Ended up using a paid service for this and it worked quite well (XD2Sketch.com)
if the feature does not come to adobe, we should move to sketch, since our dev only use sketch
Any update for this feature? Please do something! we really need this smh
This would be a feature that Sketch would want to implement, over Adobe. Your use case seems unique in Adobe being the benefactor of a feature like this, but the ability to import Sketch files into XD seamlessly, and not being able to export back to Sketch is definitely purposeful.
They don't want you to switch back to Sketch. You're much more likely to see Sketch implement a feature allowing you to import XD files than you are seeing Adobe implement an "Export to Sketch" option.

XD2sketch.com worked like a charm for me. Costs 5 bucks but saved me 3 days of work!

I know a few other Industry UX Folks that are upset because their companies forced them to use Sketch rather then XD. If this feature is implemented, they will be able to go back to using XD.
