    Anyone who has done proper colour case studies would understand why colour looks different on different displays (be mobile, tablet or desktop, or even print). Understanding colour and how light works is part of the science every half-decent designer should know.

    I am not opinionated as I have worked in every digital and even print design industry and taught myself all the finer details about managing colour for different displays.

    The software is not your colour issue.

    Adobe XD excels in so many areas and rivals the best screen design tools out there (as I have been testing all alternatives). Adobe has external colour matching applications if you need to manage and create colour profiles for your designs.

    It can be argued that every design tool should have these basics, and they do. Just the basics. Adobe XD is a screen design tool, meant to do that well. It isn’t a colour management app. Adobe Color CC can assist you in that regard, even Photoshop or Illustrator.

    However, every designer should also understand the basics, and with this, comes the understanding of colour or the behaviour of light, to effectively choose colours for your designs, as an initial step in the design process.

    This is not a software issue, this is an aptitude issue.

    Expecting Adobe to push features like this over other industry defining feature requests, is unfair and very bias.
