Ability to paste objects copied from XD as SVG code to Text Editor
In previous versions of Adobe XD we were able to past the SVG code of an object copied from XD to text editor like Visual Studio Code. But now this feature is not working. When I copy an object from XD with Ctrl+C and paste it to text editor with Ctrl+V nothing happens. Can you please restore this behavior as it was before.
OS: Windows 10
XD Version: 29.2.32
Upvote this! Can we bring this feature back?
Yup, broken as fk
upvote this!!!! you broke an essential thing
Agreed!! Anyway the plugin present a new shortcut for that: Ctrl+Alt+C
The issue with the plugin is that you need 3 extra clicks instead of a simple copy- paste

I'm running the latest version of XD (220.127.116.11) and I can no longer copy svg code from XD into a text editor such as VS code. I'm on windows 10 pro version 1909 OS Build 18363.836.
Previously I could create a vector in XD, copy it and paste the SVG code into VS code to use in my html. I used this feature every day and now when I paste the clipboard is empty. This is very frustrating, why remove the functionality? Or is it a bug?
The work-around is to copy the SVG from XD into Illustrator, then copy from illustrator into VS code, this works but the SVG code is somewhat bloated by illustrator in this process.
Alternatively there is a 'Copy SVG Code' plugin for XD which does the job but it's not as slick as the native copy and paste used to be.
Please can someone look into this as it's very frustrating and this was one of the features that made XD so awesome!

Agreed! I loved this ability, seems only available via plugin now. Can we bring this feature back?
