I'm only using XD to view a sketch file that I'm told was created in InDesign. I would like to export an artboard as a single image. When I select the artboard, choses export selection, and chose web, I get a bunch of individuals files for the artboard components. The image is just for documentation purposes. I can just do a screen capture if need be. I'm just checking if there is a better way.

Select the artboard you want to export, then File > Export > Selected. That should export the entire artboard for you.

@Chris W. Griffith , as mentioned, that what I did. I've done it with other sketch files and just got a single image. Could it be in the the the object is selected? I clicked outside of it and the shift clicked to select the whole object.

As Chris said, or just do Cmd + E

But something strange in your workflow. Why not export from InDesign direct...?  Why InDesign in the first place? 😆

@Kenneth Kawamoto, good questions. I'm just the developer told to make it happen ;). The file was created by a design firm, passed on to a project manager, who passed it on to me. I only have XD as my subsciption plan doesn't cover InDesign.
