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)
Copy and paste from XD to Photoshop looks also different
Just exported an artboard to PNG and it looks totally different in Photoshop compare to XD …

The differance in color saturation is crazy. This can't be happening in an actual design software. This NEEDS TO BE FIXED. Its embarrassing!
PLEASE. THANK YOU!
Let us choose colour profiles.. PLEASE!
There's no point in being able to copy and paste designs directly from illustrator if XD changes the colours instantly.

Dude, come on, fix this already...

Switched back to Affinity Designer, no chance that Adobe will add color profile management.
i love adobe xd, but not having the possiblity to color manage it is a huge downside for a professional tool ... please fix it now!

I can't understand why the recent features adding tighter integration with the other CC apps (copy+paste from Illustrator, round-trip image editing in Photoshop) shipped without this being addressed.
I'm currently trying to move a team of designers from Illustrator to XD for all our digital design and this is a massive roadblock to it being taken seriously.
plese fix now.
The request is from 2016, now it's 2019 and no tag or comment from Adobe … It's nice that they have build up XD from zero to have a fast and easy to use app (love it comparing to Sketch), but some base-features should they adopt from other CC apps … Sometimes it seems that Adobe do not work with their own XD app, otherwise they would be bothered by and recognised these and other things (no infinite canvas for example > every time I work I hit on the borders of this and other things)

Any chance to get a reply from someone in Adobe - whether an option to Change Color Profile inside the app will be added to XD sometime in near future?
Long time CC All Apps plan subscriber here. And it's super tough for a professional with a High Gamut P3 Display (with a Macbook or iMac) to get different colors while working in XD comparing to what colors look like when designs are exported.

Why does this feature not appear in the list of All Feature Requests? It has 428 Votes and it doesn't show up there!
How many years will it take to make a simple Color Profile menu?
I've got a xd file from a design agency with a newsletter design.
After exporting a part of the design as png, I picked up the hex color value from the EXACT same part.
After joining both together in a newsletter template I have to build, I recognise different colors of the exported graphic and the hex color I used as background color for some parts.
By using the color picker from the inspection tool of my browser, I found out, that the color of the exported graphic was different from the hex color!
After this, I opened the graphic with photoshop and used the colorpicker from there and I got the hex code value from xd!
After "exporting as ..." the graphic using photoshop and checking the "convert to sRGB" in the export dialog, I got a graphic with the correct matching color.
What a MESS!
Please fix this bug as fast as possible!

Same with Illustrator. You save an icon in AI - made of the same colours as in XD. Add the icon to the library, and then take it into XD - but the colours are completely different.
Keep it simple ADOBE.

This is what's keeping me from using Adobe XD. So frustrating, it doesn't even seem to be on their radar.

should be fixed as top priority

FIIIIIIIX THIIIIIIIS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOW CAN YOU BE INDUSTRY LEADERS IF FUNDAMENTALS SUCH AS COLOR IS AN ISSUE?
Nirvana Hasicic commented
Please fix this. This should be a top priority!
Marco Scapin commented
Please, I really need this feature! It's so simple...
Why is this still a problem! It makes it basically impossible to use XD.
