I’ve tweaked the title so it covers only exporting animation to GIF format. This will help keep our feature list fine-grained so we can get a better picture of which are the most important.
For the other formats that were originally mentioned here:
- Export animation as a video — exporting to MOV (QuickTime) is supported now, via the Record button in the Preview window. If you need to save in a different video format, please file a new suggestion with details.
- Export animation as HTML/CSS/JS — please upvote https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13198020-export-html-css-animation-code
- Export animation as Flash SWF — please file a new suggestion if you need to export to this format.

The engineering team I work with is comfortable and used to opening up XD files and looking at my designs; however, it’s up to me to clearly label production level / exploratory / archived designs within the file. I take a good chunk of time to reorganize all my artboards with section titles (since I can’t move artboards & copy simultaneously) every time I hand off to eng.
If I had the ability to use pages, I could name those pages and easily move artboards, and the team wouldn’t see all of my artboards in one place and possibly get confused.
The only other way to handle this is to duplicate the XD file and “clean it up” before sending it to eng, but we all know that designs tend to evolve even after being handed off so we’ll end up with weird duplicates and outdated designs quickly.
