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)
This is really unacceptable. How can designers commit to a design tool that doesn't have color management? We desperately need colors to look the same in our design tools as they do in browsers or exported assets. This is a real concern that must be addressed. Simply relying on the color profile of the display isn't enough. We need control over this!

XD is just frameworking tool. If they don't fix it.
Any great update is meaningless if it is not fixed.

The actual live color is different from the color displayed on the xd. I think this is the biggest problem and urgent. I hope it will be improved soon. I want to continue using xd Thank you.
This is a 3 year old issue that STILL WE SUFFER WITH!
I love XD but the colours are mental!
Maybe they are waiting for everyone else to turn up their saturation to ridiculous!?
Please fix this!!!

Satisfied with the work in XD. Exported and uploading to Dribbble. Suddenly look much duller. Please fix!
I am very in trouble because the colors in the XD work environment and the browser are different.
How has this not been fixed yet.
Still waiting for this fix -.-

This is a SCREEN DESIGN tool. DEFAULT sRGB canvas with P3 support. This is the only thing holding so many real professionals back from using this software. And no; we dont want to have to switch our system settings manually every time we are designing for the screen. We don't have to do that in any other Adobe software. XD is the only tool as of now that does not color manage canvas to sRGB. Degrading.
Does anyone know if alternate tools such as Sketch or Invision Studio have this problem as well? Thinking about making the switch. Been waiting on this issue for a while now....
This might be the reason to leave XD not worth the extra work

Thanks for doing this!
I assumed since this topic doesn't have an "feature under review" label or whatever, no one knows about it...
I've contacted Adobe today. They said that the senior team is working on it.
Although, it is not a guaranty.
Please do it quickly !
Impossible to work with this app like this !
really we need to have color management!its a shame that we dont have it
