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)
Come on, when will you fix this color management issue? This is rediculous
as Designer ! It's IMPORTANT ! Please fix this problem
I have the same issue between Illustrator and XD. Color codes are the same but colors looks different...
Try to explain to your clients why the the same design has different colors in XD prototype file and the screenshots from Illustrator....
Solve This please!!!!

Big Issue!! Solve this please
Moved from Sketch to XD for a new job and realizing how many small features XD doesn't have that makes a huge difference i.e like basic things like controlling color profile and simple cropping elements so you don't have to mask everything. Very small things but makes a huge difference for usability and quick design. PLEASE fix these!

Is this for real? It's been 4 years and almost 200 comments!
Why hasn't Adobe fixed this BASIC feature?! it is a real bummer, because XD has improved drastically over the years, but really the lack of this fundamental feature is a mayor reason to move to another software.
PLEASE SOLVE IT ASAP

I totally love XD. But the lack of colormanagement is clearly a major hickup. if you can't trust what you se with what you export, then what good is it?
Get this fixed. ASAP!
When exporting to show my files for my portfolio, the color is just dull, no life, now i have to do everything again in Sketch. This sucks

i have been designing all my app assets using illustrator and import the assets to XD where i can put it into prototyping, after the newest update, any assets that i copied into XD from illustrator will have its colour changed, it is super annoying
please fix it
Photoshop or Illustrator 使いの人にXDを胸を張ってお勧めできない理由。Figmaの方がいいって言ってしまう。
Scott Benton commented
It's crazy that this is not a feature. I'm coming to XD from a history of using InDesign / Photoshop etc. for print work. The colors in XD are DRASTICALLY different from what shows up in the browser. For anyone responsible for ensuring consistent design across media, working with brand colors for companies with brand standards, or in a professional design capacity, that's a joke. Clearly Adobe already has the ability to do this, since in 2020, the Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign can all sync color profiles through Bridge.
How is this not already implemented? Should be the number 1 focus for the next update! Nuts.

Many of the best displays for doing UI design are wide gamut. How on earth is XD not color managed?
Chris Fox commented
As an app designer, I would like the high gamut workflow to remain intact between XD and Swift, to take advantage of the high gamut displays on the intended iOS devices.
