I have over 80 XD files that I'd like to share with a co-worker. However, I've saved all of these files to my Cloud Documents, and as far as I can tell, I can't batch download OR batch share all of the files. The only solution I can find is to manually share (or download) each file individually... which is crazy. Does anyone have any other solutions? I'm wishing I never saved my files to the Cloud.

Copy the files to a USB flash drive?
I'd love to be able to do that, but from what I can see, I'd have to download a local version of each of the 80 files, one by one. There's no way to batch move/download from Creative Cloud Documents.
Did you try moving all the files to a folder and sharing the folder?
I can't, that's the problem. From Creative Cloud documents, I can't share or download a folder. I can only share (or download) individual files.

You can't, and I totally agree with you: it is absolutely crazy !
After 5 decades of personal computing, we've got used to working with files and folders, on local storage and network servers, from floppy's to flash memory. And now these cloud services tend to ignore and forget the sheer neccessities of dead-simple file management. Oh yeah, it demoes so nice and looks very futuristic, to work on a project in the cloud, whimsically swapping devices, and seemingly effortlessly collaborate with co-workers.
But in stead of alleviating the burden of technologies and bringing in more comfort and certainty, specialized wheels (with lots of bumps in them) are reinvented, which only roll on special roads (not even all roads). And in this specific case, users are not happy with managing just one file at a time – oh wait, it's even worse: just one unique file at the time, with a fair chance of ending up with corrupted data and lost work...
No dear Adobe, whatever your reasons are (either commercially, strategically, technically, legally, or all of it) for making it so difficult to understand and use all these types of flawed file management plus a couple of half-baked technologies for libraries and templates – this MAZE of MADNESS needs to stop !! You're definitely not helping here. It started with stuff like Version Cue in the CS era, and it has been getting crazier since Adobe CC.
Please bring back common sense, stick with the Creative Cloud Synced Files folder, stop with all these Projects and Creations, and various restrictive methods to offer cloud-based features. It took Apple more than 10 years to finally implement some user-accessible file system in iOS (which is also still very unstable and flawed). Be wiser, and act more competent.
Well this is garbage. I am switching to Figma. Or Sketch. Or...literally anything else. Seriously. What the hell Adobe?
