Export at 4x
I know it’s not the primary usage for XD, but I was designing a little poster for a client in A4 and they suddenly changed their mind and wanted A3. I always export higher resolution, not just in print (using web export, which gives both 1x and 2x). So, since I wanted to have A3@2x, I had to manually copy the content and scale it up to a bigger art board. Thankfully there weren’t many changes in the poster after this but it got me thinking - it’d be neat if I could just export 4x of what I had previously designed on A4 (A3@2x == A4@4x). Figma has it, and I thought it wouldn’t be too hard to implement, and would make XD a slightly more versatile tool ;)
I’ll leave this open for now, but if you select Android and set it at “Designed at 100%,” you would get a 4x version out of it.
Exporting assets from XD is terrible because the resolution offered only goes up to 2x. It should at least go up to 4x for the image to be displayed crisp on the web. You can have a great design but not be able to showcase it due to this reason. There should also be a feature to open XD assets without losing the design in illustrator, this could solve the high resolution export issue.
