Color Management (set color profiles)
XD should be a color managed application.
I'm not sure what the full context of color management is within the UI/UX industry is, or if it's something that many pay attention to, or if it's just left un-managed.
Currently a vast majority of designers are using high gamut displays to design. Our final output will however differ greatly without some proper color management implemented. If color managment is implemented, we can at least visually soft proof our design and colors to specific devices (ie: New iOS devices that support P3 color gamut), or older sRGB devices.
At the same time sRGB images used won't expand to the display's high color gamut, making them look over saturated.
(Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

Why is this not even in Review or backlog? Consider that Figma and Sketch runs with correct colour profile and XD not instead of focus on animations etc, personal for me this is not a hight priority, why this is not being fixed. not even mentioning other things that designers expect to see when they switch from sketch or Figma.
Im not surprise why people talk so much about Figma.
I submitted web mockups using XD and was told the colors were much more desaturated than the selected color palettes. I initially hadn't noticed, but when holding up against the original palette I'm stunned. Why would the colors be this off? This is not an issue in Photoshop and cannot understand why Adobe set this up this way?
Xd appears to be properly aware of the color profile. This can be seen by the fact that Xd doesn't display an image with a custom profile embedded with RGB replaced with GBR in a psychedelic color.
However, it does not seem to recognize the monitor profile. I don't know why on earth they are implementing it this way.
Xd should at least implement a CMM equivalent to a web browser. The current implementation is completely incomprehensible.

I can not understand why colors in Adobe illustrator, do NOT match adobe XD... It is off by 15-20%. I am on a imac. Is it the software or the hardware.. please clue me in. And yes of course I am using RGB in illustrator.

Please, we really need this, and have waited too long for it. Is it even being worked on?
literally been 2 years of complaints and you guys havent touched this. Idiotic
I need that too!

Will there ever be an option to switch between Display P3 and sRGB profiles? ***crying***
So you can only really use Adobe XD if you want to design for sRGB color profile and have a monitor that already has a 95-100% sRGB color profile setting by itself?
Yes, fix this please asap! There is no trouble shooting for this at all??
Pretty sure Adobe has no budget to include this, because everything that's not going to stockholders is likely already spend for a tablet version of adobe XD for the iPad kids.
Color management in a design application isn't really a priority.

Why is this not fixed?! This is so frustrating.
Why in the world are we still dealing with this???

This is really a big deal. My colour-shifts are significant and do not match my intentions, clients get the wrong idea. I cannot use this to proof. This is a DEAL BREAKER for any professional designer. Please remedy.

This lack of controlling color appearance undercuts what XD is designed for: client comps. If colors appear different in browsers (sRGB) than they do when the designer is choosing, and when the client views them, then this program is crap! Only when clients/designers do not care about appearance does it work.
