Exported artboard file name
When exporting "single" selected artboard, I would like to have a control over the exported artbard file name.
Now, each time I am exporting new artboard version, I am forced to create a separate folder.
I also export the same artboard few times in a row to present some idea but with different visibility of individual artboard element. Creating folder each time for such export is a nightmare.

We need flexibility to create our own file name.. like other adobe applications have
It's just crazy to still have this issue in 2022, thats f***** critical for the frontend developper to choose the name of the exported assets without having to rename all the layers.
Don't know for you, but my webdesigner don't name layers or give the same name to many layers, so I have plenty of images, in a layer called "photo" and so, when I export, new image erase the previous one...
XD doesn't have the natural option to write a custom name when the file is exported in any of the options in export menu, it's kinda odd to go to windows explorer and rename the file if we want to keep a version of exported files.
On mac version this option is available but not in Windows.

he is right! if I want to export the same screen again I need to change the artboard name
because I have a popup I need to replace the same file and I can't rename it.

Please help. Does this feature exists or not.
When Exporting File/Image/Design/Asset (whatever you name it) I want to export different size and colors of the same project with a different version. For example, logo1, logo2, logo3. Now, the only option I have is "file with this name exists" want to replace it? I don't want to replace it, I want to export (save as) slightly different version of it. How to do this?
XD v.188.8.131.52 (from update on 9/11/18)
Windows 10 1703
Steps to reproduce:
1) Select an Artboard
2) Hamburger menu > Export > Export Selected
3) Export Assets dialog > choose any format,device, resolution etc.
4) (within same dialog) Export to: Click the CHANGE button
Expected result: Ability to see other images that were previously exported to this folder. Ability to rename the image i'm currently trying to export
Actual result: After choosing the proper folder to which I want to export, there are no previews of other images in that folder (and they ARE there).
I'm unable to rename the soon-to-be exported image as I seem to be stuck on the "Select Folder" windows dialog. Said dialog does not allow me to enter a file name within the "Select Folder" text field.
This is seriously breaking XD for me. I cannot export anything to any folder. I might as well just go back to paper.

Just like 'Save As..'
Allows me to export selected with a name I choose at export time. Currently, exports are automatically given the name of the layer without any option to change.
This allows for the saving of different or edited versions of an asset without overwriting an existing. It also allows for exporting an asset from a different Artboard or file that may need to have the same name in different Artboards / files but may need to be exported to the same folder.

Yes please! i like how fast i can export things - I don't want to have to group the items, move them to a different layer, and THEN export (and what if the items are on different layers?!)
Just a little text field on the export that defaults to the layer/art-board name would do it

Needs a "filename" field on the export screen
