Remember Save path for Each XD file
I face this issue everytime when I export any asset. The solution for this is simple. If we can make XD to remember different saving path for different files.
There are two files Project1.xd and Project2.xd
Suppose we are working on "Project1.xd" and we exported some assets to path "D:\Project1\Assets". Everything is fine.
Now we are working on "Project2.xd" and we want to export some assets. We selected the path "D:\Project2\Assets". No issues till now.
Now the problem comes in. Now we again worked on "Project1.xd" and again we want to export assets. Now we find the path to export is "D:\Project2\Assets" instead of "D:\Project1\Assets".
You might think that "What will be the export path for new file?" Well, the answer is simple: The last export path.
I think the Adobe team will consider this feature.
When working on multiple projects it is frustrating to have to keep updating the save location for exporting assets when switching between projects. What would be useful is for the application to remember that assets exported from project x go in folder x and assets exported from project y go in folder y etc. etc.
Option to retain Export path per XD File. It would be a big time saver if I didn't have to change the export path each time I switch XD Files.
Needed. Its anoying searching for storage place everytime switching a project.
This is state of the art!

I support this feature request, because currently I have to navigate through my folder structure multiple times per day when switching between projects and exporting new assets/artboards.
Since sharing of project files is not uncommon, I can think of two possible solutions:
The relative export path is saved in the Adobe XD project file. So the subpath "below" the place where the project file lies.
This only works for situations when your export paths are somewhere deeper in your folder structure than the project file. It is problematic when multiple users are sharing the project file and are not using the same relative project folder structure.
It probably does not work when you open an XD file directly from the cloud.
The Adobe XD installation remembers the export paths for all (or recently) opened project files on the current machine. This means, the paths are not part of the .xd file and so every team member can have their own paths "remembered", no matter which folder structure or operating system they use.
Approach 2 is probably more versatile.
