Single link for design specs and prototype

Great to see design specs working! Will add some ideas for it here. The first of them is:

As a designer, I need to send to developers a link with the working prototype and another with the design specs. Would be great if I could share a single link and design specs and prototype worked as tabs on that page.

        YES! please combine these into a single published package. Also please consider the versioning aspect as more organizations more into iterative design and development, the ability to make changes and update (exists) but still able to view previous version without getting into the business of link management.

        Hi Joshua, thank you for sharing your feedback. We are working on making the workflow simpler so that you don't have to create and manage separate links.

        Can you share what your use case is to allow people to download the source file from a prototype link?

        As a user, I want to share one link to users, shareholders and developers so that I don't constantly have to keep sharing to two different sources.

        Having to constantly push out to "Share for Review" and "Share for Developers" is a constant drag. Makes it difficult for project managers to review it and then also keep track of a separate link for developers. Please reference the UX of Invision and how they make it very easy to toggle between prototype (review) and developer (Inspect) mode.

        +Bonus - Add option to download source file from the shared link would be amazing as well.

        A variation would have 3 tabs: 1) A free text document with links to elements of the prototype and/or design spec 2) The prototype and 3) The design specs. This package would be a complete documentation for the process.

        Oh this is a lovely feature request. Didn't know I wanted this until I read it. 100% agree.

        Yes I also think it would be really useful to be able to toggle between a prototype and design spec view from a single link

        1. Description:
        The publication of a visual design spec should include a link to same version of the prototype.
        2 Value
        Instructing reviewers how to navigate to each of the objects generated by XD is error prone. Permitting the linking of the same version of a prototype to one another is the the natural solution.
