Export to Dreamweaver
A great feature would be to export a layout into a format that could be edited in Dreamweaver allowing us to create a layout or UI and then build a final producr straight off of that.
This would speed up the design process and levels of productivity tremendously.

Why Not Make DreamWeaver a platform like Webflow or Editor X that has that Drag and Drop ability, with still the Option of selecting Coding section, But allow Non Coding Designers to develop top of the line Website, with an additional advantage to use Lottie Files, scrolling effects, animations, Interactive Layouts etc. Also the ability to Host Websites like Wix.com, Without the hassle.
Also Make Dreamweaver connected with XD, where you can design your website Layout in XD, save it as a particular file with all the CSS, HTML files, and have it opened in Dreamweaver to make the necessary adjustments, Add workable Templates such as Sliders, Modals, Tabs etc.
As a Graphic Designer who does not code, would be a game changer, where templates, prototypes etc, can always be designed by coders to profit off of.
Please make this possible.

That would be a Dream Woven true!
It would be useful if Adobe came out with a feature for XD to export to Dreamweaver after it has been approved. Then that way you don't have to spend extra time recreating what you created in XD. It would save so much time.
I don't have allot of time when it comes to doing extra steps in design. Do you think Adobe would add this type of feature to XD?
Once we have designed a working prototype in XD it seems a shame to only be able to use it as reference when building the website or interactive app. It would be great to be able to export it as HTML/CSS/JS in a similar way to animaapp. I have heard that this app works ok, but the code isn't as streamlined as it could be, but it would be a great staring point and it's a shame that currently we have to go out of the Adobe suite to achieve this.
I am a designer who can also code, and I think that if I was able to export my wireframe web designs directly into Dreamweaver, I could be more effective, efficient and productive designing, developing and launching websites. It could also be a great way to hand-off HTML / CSS files to developers.
Integration with Dreamweaver that allows us to view and edit code based on our design to speed up the design to development process.

It boggles the mind that Adobe is either so clueless, or they're purposefully creating a gap in this area. They used to have Flash Builder in order to (relatively easily) design, mock-up, and create apps. They took that away knowing it's abilities weren't being replaced. It would seem that XD was purpose-built in order to get piped into Dreamweaver - but where is that functionality? We know they have the ability on the back-end. IMPLEMENT IT.
I just started my Adobe journey due to an urgent need and I can't believe that on the first tool I encounter Adobe already dropped the ball. Seriously I can't even export the basic style settings etc. of my prototype to anything that I could then continue in Dreamweaver for example??
I understand that logic and design are very different things, but the fact that I cannot simply pickup where I left in XD is quite... idiotic. Most of the data should be there already in terms of positioning, styling and content
@Adobe: Please review what you are doing!!! This makes 0 sense. At least allow people to create a basic blueprint in html and css that can be used as a basic guidance for the programmers. Why is there an integration with Photoshop and al. but not between XD and Dreamweaver?? I feel like I want to pull my hair out, this is such an obvious gap!
I agree export to Dreamweaver would be great.
I think it should be a good thing if we will have the possibility to export a XD prototype to Dreamweaver
Export your project to Dreamweaver.
Could we have a tight integration between Adobe Xd (creating design content) and Adobe Dreamweaver (writing code)?
It'd complete the front end work flow, especially on the CSS side of things.

Would be great if this feature came into existence, but it
would never come any soon.

why doesn't this exsist...?

This could complete the workflow of the modern web designer.
