Share Again – don’t copy URL on Saved-As
I often ‘save as’ my app, and rebrand it for a different client. Despite renaming the saved-as file, if I SHARE AGAIN, it will remember the old URL – and sometimes I’m tired enough to accidentally over-write the file. This would be disastrous with clients! Please forget the URL of a saved-as file.
Now, when you Save As, your old URLs will not transfer over.
This sounds like the same issue I am having.
Every time I 'Save As' with a file I have already shared, when I go to Share for Review or Specs again, the Name defaults to the previously saved file instead of the newly saved as file, and the 'update' link option is active.
On multiple occasions I've accidentally updated something that I should have created a new link for. I'm not even sure if it's overwriting the old file or if I've just got two identically named files (because I always pull up the old file and update it as soon as I realize the error.)
What I expect to happen: On 'Save As', any previously shared/created URLs will be removed and I will be returned to the 'Create new Link' state by default with the new file name in the Share Title field.
1) Create a file
2) Share for Review
3) Save file As [some other name]
4) Go to Share for Review (now in the new file)
-> note the old file name is in the title field and I have the option to update...
I'm guessing this is by design (and therefore not a bug) but it's super annoying (especially when creating/sharing/updating hundreds of prototypes a month.) Please improve!!!
This has to be a bug. It should NOT be possible for two completely different XD files to share the same URL!
I am constantly having this issue. Why in the world would two different XD files have the same URL?

Thanks for the feedback Jonathan. It is something we have heard in the past. I'm reviewing this with the team.
