Option to publish all screens even without prototyping

If I started prototyping and publish design specs without the prototype linking all the screens the design spec shows only the screens that are linked in the prototype. The specs link doesn't get updated even if I remove all the links.

    Any updates on this? The lack of this feature is severely slowing down my current project working with a developer to implement my UI Designs. I'm having to randomly link artboards wherever just to get them to show! Please fix this!

    When I create a link to Share for Development. I would like the option to share ALL art boards. Not just art boards included in the prototype.

    I agree with this request. In my use case I am wireframing a standard website, and I want to add in a few interactions, but not every artboard will have one.

    Also any text we keep on the empty areas such as titles of sections like onboarding, wireframes should also be present in the design specs. Now developers get confused which set of artboards are representing what. The Design spec sheet it self looks really messy without the section titles.

    Right now user must to connect all artboard in prototype mode, to make it visible for developers. I want to share not only prototype, but artboard with buttons&elements statements, and i don't want to connect them.

    I just discovered this issue myself. I added a bunch more artboards to the next version of my file and suddenly I can't export ALL artboards without linking them. I went back to m v5 file and republished (v5 only has like 8 artboards vs 22 in my v6 file). I proceeded to delete artboards from v6 test file and voila! I was able to publish a review link without linking all artboards.

    Not sure what the magic number of artboards for publishing without linking screens is, but it seems like Adobe is requiring linking screens for X amount of artboards in a file.

    As some of the commenters have already said, it would be great to have the option to upload all artboards, but there is also a strong need for choosing select artboards to be uploaded. Not every artboard needs to be handed off to developers.

    100% needed. I have static pages or error state artboards that I don't want to prototype, just need dev to see them for UI design specs. Please update this!

    please can this be added, it's an absolute FUNDEMENTAL feature when passing work off to Devs!

    Right now, artboards that are in my document (but not linked to the main prototype flow) don't show up when I share the specs for the devs.
    The thing being , they are alternative flows so part of the same project and should not be hidden in web exports

    I want to export and share all pages of my XD document no matter if they are animated or not (e.g. "export all pages"). That's not possible at the moment.

    It is very tedious to always require to link every artboard to show up just for the design spec. This is most obvious when screens have different states and I usually end up needing to create a custom navigation for the developers just to show those screens. It is very awkward and time-consuming.

    it used to be solvable by just linking every page, now even though i linked everything, it still does not show up on the public link
