Our designer has handed me an Adobe XD document. I'm trying to grab RGB values from the elements, but when I bring the color picker I see no option to change to RGB from HSB (I wanted to upload screenshot but due to the current AWS outage imgur is rejecting my upload request).

How can I switch to RGB?

  • Although late, switching colour values between hex, rgb and hsb is now available in XD. Designers can also publish the design specs for devs to inspect on an element by element basis. Commented Oct 26, 2018 at 13:24

Unfortunately, you can’t currently choose to view colours as RGB in Adobe Experience Design, and you can’t open the macOS system colour picker either.

But, you could copy and paste the HEX into the system picker, and convert to RGB that way. The system picker can be opened in many apps, including TextEdit.

If you’re after CSS RGBA values, third party colour pickers can provide that.
