Remember names of exported assets
I like the idea that you simplify layers and groups. But when we come to code flow, renaming all assets after export is very waste of time.
Now that we have a layers panel, you can name your objects and groups in order to control the asset names on export.
The option to name groups and assets would be the most remarkable crowning achievement of Adobe
I'd like to able to give objects and groups a name in the inspector that. When exporting assets, this name should become the default file name.

great that XD allows me to export all assets in one go and automatically creates the android folders with the relevant file sizes, but huge frustration having to then go in and rename everything.
Would be fixed if we could simply name assets in the document so that they inherit the correct file name on export.

I'm designing an app and was exporting the assets just now. One huge problem that i found was that, although you can export all assets at the same time, and it gives you the correct suffix and folder structure, it is a huge mess because you have to rename your objects again.
My suggestion is to provide with a way of naming the objects or groups you make on XD, while designing, so that the exporting task is more efficient and less redundant

Just unify them with the symbols idea. Instead of naming them, just make it a symbol. Maybe?

Here my idea for exporting asset that I call Asset Mode.

Absolute must have.
This is a huge pain point as is. Looking forward to not re-naming every asset 6 times for Android!
