Show/Find all elements/assets which are marked for export
It would be nice to have a simple option to see all elements/assets which are markded for export. Sometimes you mark an element by mistake (for example a simple rectangle). Later it could be hard to find this special element on your artboard layers to remove the export marker.

Like Figma, there is a list and preview of names and thumbnails of all assets that are available in one single bulk zipped download. At this moment, in XD, we have only a total number of files that will be available across artboards.

This feature would be very helpful. Would've saved me hours of time this week unmarking thousands of assets for export so I could add developer specs to my prototype. I wanted to include the assets in the developer specs but XD crashed every time I tried to publish the prototype with them. I had to "unmark for export" the icons I was using on hundreds of artboards and consolidate them to one style guide artboard where I marked each one for export. If there was a way to unmark all that are marked for export at the same time, it would've been very helpful.

Yes please oh my god.
I get sent an XD doc that has been sent by another person who already used the mark for export feature. Now I go to export a couple of assets, and XD dumps 50 images into my destination folder. Now I need to go through and unmark every single one of them individually if I want to continue using this feature in a useful way... so painful.

Yes, this is so easy to do, same like in PS filter by attribute (locked, marked for export, hidden)! + add option to export this list from XD (with sorting for images and svg!) developer mode export doesn't work (just 5% of marked items showing up there)!
I absolutely agree. Especially because I just noticed that (assumedly, correct me if I am wrong) if I mark an object inside a repeat grid it gets exported as many times as it is present in the repeat grid. This is quite bothersome. I feel like generally the workaround would be to create a new canvas where you store all icons as components and only mark these for export. But generally, I would truly appreciate an overview of all marked objects, including an option to unmark all of them with one click.
[Edit] Nevermind, I noticed even marked components get exported per instance and not only once. Not sure why this would be necessary.
I think this feature is so important. I have to always expand all the layers to check what is marked. It's so time consuming when the design is complicated
As a user I'd like to have a list overview over all assets I've marked for export.
This could as well be a filter for the layer panel, showing only those layers marked for export.
Why? I want to quickly remove assets from being exported without having to search multiple artboards.
I would totaly agree with this idea. Since pasted pictures are automaticly selected for export its realy hard to keep the controle over all marked elements (especially when you have a lot of artboards and groups within the element lists).
It would be great to have a overview in the export window wher you can make a last check befor exporting.
Would be very helpful for developer handoffs.

This is so much needed! Thank you!
Agreed Dirk, I'm searching for the same thing myself, a list or window showing all marked items would be helpful, with the option to unmark them as well.
