We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Well, I have been updating XD from CC regularly and it didn't have any issues. Until, today, that I wanted to use the English version (previously, it was Chinese version). Then I realised that the language settings have been dimmed, so I changed my OS language to English, but it didn't affect XD. My CC program is set to prefered language English, but after I reinstalled XD, not long it was still Chinese, but also I got this empty welcome page, I can still open my older files no problem, but I lost the default artboards entrance shown on the welcome page.
Later today, I have contacted Support, suggusted that I uninstalled XD and logged out CC, using Cleaner Tool as well, and rebooted my Computer, still, after reinstalled XD, same thing happened with language and blank welcome page.
XD starter v126.96.36.199(Jan 29th, 2021).
I really like the previous language settings, that it goes with your OS language, but now it's dimmed... I understand that CC suite uses language as one of the selling point, but still... This sucks when we work in a multi-language environment that sometimes we do need to change it English. And Even under the Chinese version, re-name an artboard with Chinese, all you get is wrong Characters, this, never happened before.
I understand there are lots of restrictions with Chinese users here, but, as more and more UX designers switch to XD, this is really not helping.
If there are solutions to this matter, pls link me to it. Thanks.
Hope everyone is keeping safe.

We're so sorry to hear about the trouble. Regarding the UI language, could you confirm if you have tried the suggestion shared here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/change-display-language-to-english-without-changing-my-syste...
Regarding the blank home screen, could you please try the suggestions shared here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/home-tab-broken-can-t-create-new-document/m-p/11782199?page=...
I see that the support team already tried re-installing however could you confirm if you have tested XD on a new user profile?

Sorry for the long overdue reply.
1. UI Language.
The suggestion didn't help, sorry to say this. The early versions of XD pre-2020 I think, that I was able to switch the language if I change my system language. But the latest versions the language option is not there any more, it's grey. I have removed everything adobe and re-installed XD, when I ran it for the first time after installation, it says: You are entitled to use XD in simplified Chinese, I mean, WHAT? Notice that My Computer System Language is English. See screenshot below.
2. Empty Welcome Page (after reinstalling it for so many times, still having empty welcome screen, see screenshot above)
I will upload the log for you, and send you the link.
Thanks for helping me out.
And one more thing,
Regarding the artboard names being ridiculous.... That under Chinese UI language, the artboard names are correct on layer panels, but on the design area are random characters, which, never happens before...
