I need a way of sharing the layout grid view of my designs with my development team. The grid doesn't display when I share in the development view setting even if it's turned on on the designs. I also can't find a way to export a PNG/pdf of the design showing the grid. At the moment I'm having to work around this by screenshotting the designs with the grid overlay but this means they are really low Res. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Sarah,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I tested this on my end and it seems to be working so could please share a few more details like:

 

  1. The version of XD and OS.
  2. Is this happening with a specific file or multiple files?
  3. We currently only have an option to share the prototype only with a layout grid, we don't have the option for a square grid.

 

Regarding exporting designs to pdf with the grid, I am afraid, we don't have the option for that as of now however we have received a similar request on our Adobe XD UserVoice and I'd request you to please upvote this: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/19069546-show-the-...

 

Regards

Rishabh

I don't think this can be achieved at this point. The grid is only visible within Xd, and not in the prototype links, or .png export. A workaround would be to just recreate the grid using actual lines, aligned with your grid, and put them on top of everything else. They will then export fine along with the rest of the design.
