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)
Has this not been corrected yet? I've been dealing with mismatched colors and it has been driving me crazy! A solution would be great. Thank you!
The colors appear drastically muted when I export XD files as design comps, it causes big issues as a designer trying to communicate with developers and get proper colors to match the original design. This is not a display colorspace issue, and is an XD issue.
Please offer a fix.

Design a website, or build a brand design guide. Then open the prototype in a web browser. Ya, that's why we need color management. Designers require the color profile to match where it will live. Web browsers don't support high gamut profiles. Adobe you have it in your other apps!
This is just fundamental stuff. Surprised this isnt a the top request
I suppose it depends on your monitor because it was fine before. I think those like me who switched to the newer macbooks will be in for a surprise.
Yes, this issue is very frustrating, and as I pay for all the Adobe products, I do not want to pay extra money for Sketch or Figma. I copy an element from Illustrator into XD and is super bright! Would you please try to fix this issue as it is impossible to show this design to a client? The colour display is very frustrating for a long time and very time-consuming. It should work within the Adobe suit!
I'm currently using XD and Illustrator but when I copy a vectorized object from one program to the other, the color slightly changes. I'd like to see colors remain consistent when copying and pasting things from from one program to another. The attached image shows what happens if I copy an object from XD and then paste and recopy the object from illustrator back into XD again. The right colors are before and the left colors are after.

Please add color management

My design in Xd has a blue tonnage but the exported image is red :|
I am tired of being disappointed every time I see that color management support has not been implemented in every update.
I would like to see some comments from the XD team.
As long Adobe won't fix this basic issue, my bet is a lot of people will skip this and use Sketch or Figma. Incredible for such a huge company which such amazing software, but they seem reluctant to listen for years now about our complaints about this. Surely they must have heard about it by now. Maybe the whole program has to be rewritten and its an amazing investment for them?
My myopia worsened after using xd
It's really frustrating to see Adobe Xd still struggles with a proper color management system. When i paste images from Photoshop or screenshots from websites into Adobe XD i'm speechless about the color discrepancies. I love XD and want to continue using it but as many here mentioned, this is not a nice to have feature but an essential.
Dear XD Team, please develop no more feature we can live without but put your effort into a functional color management. THX
Fix it dammit

Is there an email address where we can reach a developer from Adobe? If so, can someone post this? Are they even working on this? Sketch has profiles.
After 1200+ votes and almost 300 comments it doesn't look like this message board is helping. I understand that XD is built differently than photoshop, but it may be time to figure out a solution. It is nice to have voice recognition features in an app, but designers rely on color, and switching monitor profiles all the time to deal with print and web workflows is not a solution.
Even a response to let us know that it is coming in 2022, or 2027, or sometime in the future would be wonderful.
Please add color management
really frustrating... please fix
Didn't have this huge problem on windows, i moved on mac and now have it. Can't get an explanation why Adobe didn't fix it yet. 2 years i work with XD and i'm about to jump back on Sketch for this. Can't believe it.
Can this be fixed? The discrepancy between colour values is mindboggling.
Fix it, please
