We seriously need to be able to convert our designs into code, just like sketch and invision can both do. This is the only thing holding people back from joining xd.254 votes
“Convert to code” is fairly ambiguous, and I’m looking for more specifics as to what you’re hoping to get out of this. We already have a number of stories that go to specific technologies: HTML/CSS, XCode, Android Studio, etc. I’d like to close this one out in the interest of having more specific export paths.
Add xCode export to the list of functions... great for informative apps61 votes
Can you tell us more about how you’d like this to work? Do you want XD to export image assets and insert them directly into the correct folders/filenames in an existing Xcode project? Or do you want XD to generate Objective-C / Swift code to create a brand new Xcode project?
A client is requesting to have assets in Illustrator format. Basically, I want to be able to export from XD as an Illustrator file with the options to save images as linked or embedded. This is similar to the SVG export option, except that SVG I think has a file size limit of about 15 MB. When I export as an SVG at a large size, XD fails. Exporting as Illustrator with supported text boxes (not breaking them into individual text lines and not outlining the text either. Just easy and editable from XD to Illustrator. XD export as SVG with linked files doesn't fully work properly as it is now. I am having to rebuild files when I open them in Illustrator. Thanks!

I would like to understand more about the limitation of the export as SVG as i am not aware of any limit. Are you talking about a limit in the application that consumes the SVG, like a browser or Illustrator?
In general, if you choose to export with embedded images, the size of SVG will become large and it will be hard to process it in other application.
This was previously suggested but it seemed like it needed to be reposted (if not, feel free to delete this request).
Outside of maybe SVG for obviously (?) reasons, the exported file looks pixelated. The exports do not look presentable--I've been better off with screenshots but screenshots are screenshots. I would love if this request gets a second look.4 votes
Can you check to see whether or not your objects are pixel snapped? If you’d like us to take a look at it, please add a comment with a link to a document/artboard that we can try this locally.
I believe the new version of Illustrator released in November had some changes to address this issue. Could you please try again and let us know if this issue is fixed?
I've created this design for 6/7/8 (375x667) but when exporting the artboard to PNG it's not as high quality as on screen. I want to share the prototype designs of this artboard to my client but unfortunately, neither JPG nor PNG delivered the exact results that were intended or could be similar to the screen. When I export the image and test it on my iPhone 6, it seems to be blurry and with jaggy lines. Please refer to the attached image.
Kindly look into this as this issue is very important to be fixed.3 votes
Can you check to see if your objects are pixel aligned? That could affect the fuzziness of text as well. Your objects could get knocked off pixel if you resize a group.
Selecting multiple Artboards and then clicking batch export button of one item, currently only selects that item for the export, so I have to click through every single one of them I want to be exported. Please add a feature where clicking that button applies for all selected Artboards.1 vote
Batch export works with the “mark for batch export” feature in the layers panel. Can you tell us more about what you’re trying to accomplish?
The option of being able to export a working version of the mocked up product to place in powerpoint or other presentation document. It would be easier to structure a presentation rather than talking over a recording of the mocked up product.1 vote
Have you tried just using the mockup as a presentation? We use XD in place of PPT presentations frequently.
We using in our project Font Awesome 5 pro, and i have issue with my workflow. Basically i find icon on web https://fontawesome.com and click to copy glyph or for known icons i just type "star" or "exclamation" etc. Everything works for me until i need to export data for programmers. If i mark icon for export, XD just export svg with textfield filled with glyph from font, but its useless as icon export. I need some option to mark icons to vectorize before exporting. Thanks!1 vote
Do you need to have the text as editable while it’s in the file? You can vectorize yourself by selecting the object and pressing Cmd+8 (Mac) or Ctrl+8 (Win).
I would like to be able to just export a list of all the colors I use in my design in a list, for the developer to know what colors he has to add to his css file.
Also that would also be good for the typography assets.0 votes
Thanks for your feedback! Have you tried sharing a design spec for that same information? Or are you looking for a particular format?
