Sharing Prototype in a closed network
Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?
This functionality is now available for a limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise. While offline publication is available, current and future sharing and collaboration features will be restricted. The full product functionality and experience in XD is available only when XD uses Creative Cloud services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Adobe account team for more information!
We need to share with development on private servers.

It'd be great if you could download, or create, a functioning prototype for offline or local use.
Sketch allows you to do this, and simply creates a folder with all the HTML files and assets.
I've seen several "workarounds" mentioned in this thread -
- Export to PDF
- record video
- send to cloud then, open in browser and save as web archive
There are inherent problems with each of these:
- PDF only saves images as pages, all interactivity is lost.
- video also loses interactivity. People can't actually use it.
- third option sounds like it could work, but you need cloud to get it in a web browser, so that's a non-started in a closed security environment.
WE NEED A NON-CLOUD SOLUTION TO SHARE OUR PROTOTYPES
This is a must have.
My last two companies required our Axure prototypes to be hosted on private servers.
My latest example is different: as I was using the Axure servers to export demos used by my CEO for sales pitches, I was also exporting a local version for him to have on his laptop when he was traveling. Due to wifi problems he used the backup local files multiple times.
This now impacts use of the new Design Specs feature. If you want to be able to use Design Specs but don't have access to the sharing capabilities, vote for this idea. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/32264848-design-specs-for-enterprise-customers

I work in on of the Fortune 100 american companies as UX engineer and I would dream to implement Xd here. However due to security reasons cloud storage is a deal breaker for us. Hope Adobe understands they are loosing considerable amount of users because of that.

There is export to PDF in File menu.
or use "Creative Cloud Enterprise" for close networks. http://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/business/enterprise/use-cases.html
When I navigate my prototype, i'd like to download some attach file like pdf or jpg that contains the screenshot of all page for example.
I can will upload these files in prototype area of AdobeXD.
It's useful to attach a/some file in the project
I completely agree. I also work for a large company and we are blocked from sharing via Creative Cloud, understandably so. Being able to save the prototype locally and share it through our own company's cloud would be wonderful. The recording is a huge file size, and doesn't give my client the control to click through themselves.
While the vote count may be low for this request, I can't express how important it is for those of us who work for large companies. You may have lots of customers using your share capabilities, but most likely, they just aren't aware of the risks.
Completely agree that sharing via Adobe's website is not appropriate for client work. We need to be able to save the interactive prototype locally and share through our company's secure mechanisms. The recordings are huge files and don't give the end user the control to click through it themselves.
Same story here. Not permitted to share online
I hope adobe understands that every individual commenting here could represent millions of dollars in business.
+1 requesting this
I have the same problem as Sebastian. For security and privacy reasons, we need an on-premise storage solution for prototype sharing - not a cloud hosted by Adobe.

Until XD allows me to share protoypes (without having to host them on a publicly accessible location), I can't get its use approved.
I have the same issue -- I work for a large financial services institution where we'd like to take advantage of XD but we need the ability to share a prototype internally within our organization without using Adobe Creative Cloud which we're blocked from accessing. The solution would be the ability to export the prototype as a package of html/images that we could host on any web server.

As it turns out, #2) Technique works pretty well; visit https://xd.adobe.com/view/whatever and in Chrome right-click "Save as" , save to "Web page, Complete" format. Then open Chrome with CORS security disabled , and, it seems to allow all the same navigation.
I had the same problem. some other countries clients cannot open this link so how, and required a offline interaction prototype. Wish adobe XD could have an option to download as a PDF or powerpoint format directly
It would be awesome if it becomes a web URL based prototype for remote testing and feedback.
