Thank you so much for your patience. Below is the update that I got from the team.

Adobe has acknowledged an issue with the version 50 update of XD, and hopefully they will address it.

 

But importantly, the Starter version of XD has not gone away, and there seems to be a straightforward workaround to access it (even in version 50)...

 

Here it is: Instead of launching XD from the Creative Cloud Desktop app, try starting it from elsewhere – namely, from the Windows Start menu or from the macOS Dock/Launchpad.

 

Then choose the "Exit XD" button, but XD Starter should stil

It currently states in my account that with my Photoshop Plan I have access to XD starter plan.

But now we don't get future updates?

Hi @HARSHIKA_VERMA 
You said "...if you cancel during the trial period, you will go back to the Starter plan."

Hello @HARSHIKA_VERMA,

 

Thank you for the response, but this does not appear to be the case since the new version 50 of Adobe XD...

 

Multiple people have posted above how they are no longer able to use the Starter plan without having a free trial or paid subscription... The same thing is reported here and here. This is not the way XD worked before version 50.


Could you please circle back with the XD team for an explanation on what is going on? The XD Starter plan has not been removed, yet many people are now no longer able to use it. Perhaps a glitch was introduced somewhere? Thanks!

Hi @HARSHIKA_VERMA,

 

Thank you for your post. However, multiple customers have reported that with version 50 of XD, even after signing up for a trial and then cancelling, they are still unable to access the free Starter plan after the trial ends.

 

You and the team can test/confirm this for yourselves, and then please advise. Thanks!

So, i start a "test" and canceled it a few hours later.

 

I am NOT able to start the "starter version" via launcher. I have to use windows - apps. So i see this as a creative-cloud-launcher bug.

 

I can imagine that 7 days have come to pass that the "test" button revert to a standard white "open" 😄

Hi, I'm encountering this while trying to update XD to access a recent file that's been shared with me - assuming I sign up to the trial and then cancel the subscription, what guarantee do I have that future updates will be available? It's not like I can keep signing up to free trials. Is this a bug that will be fixed in the next version (in which case what's the timescale for this?) or do you intend to keep it in place?

I can open XD - the issue is that I can't open shared files created in the recent version, and I'm not able to update XD without signing up to the trial, as there doesn't seem to be a way to install the update without the Creative Cloud desktop app. I'd rather not have to take it on trust that they'll treat it as a bug and have it sorted by the next update, and I can't exactly ask the designer I'm working with to roll back their software version.

Hi @gwliblogger,

 

If you don't want the free trial, then you could get the XD standalone installer (latest version 50) from Adobe via a direct download link and install it on your computer without using the Creative Cloud Desktop app.

 

Please let us know how it goes.

Hi Andre22782708ssxm,

 

We are sorry for the trouble. Could you please also share the screenshot of the "Blue test button" aside XD for better understanding?

 

Have you installed XD from the Creative Cloud Desktop app?

 

I will try my best to help you.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

This shot shows top : XD in creative cloud panel

bottom, title bar when opening XD manually (So you can see my starter plan is active)

 

I actually went through the "accept trial, update XD, then cancel subscription" but i cannot open XD from CC anymore, i have to do it manually.

Indeed, there appear to be other reports here, here, and here of the Starter plan no longer working without a free trial or paid subscription since version 50 of XD was released earlier this week...

 

I suspect some issue or other glitch was introduced with version 50, which hopefully Adobe will sort out soon

because the free Starter plan should still be available – and Adobe continues to show this as well:

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/xd-subscription-options.html

https://www.adobe.com/go/xdstarter

 

In the meantime, I would suggest rolling back to the previous version 49 of XD by following the directions here:

Please let us know if that helps, and works around the issue for you.

Ok horrible work around but .....

Yes accept trial, then WAIT for XD to update. Cancel Plan. You CANNOT open XD from CC panel anymore, the only option is "Try" which leads you down the select subscription plan. However if you open XD manually (like from start menu on windows) you can open it. In XD it still shows me on the starter plan......

Really hoping this is just a glitch, as likely would not be able to update without going through the hoops again.....

That unfortunately does not hold true anymore. There is no way to stay in the Starter plan anymore since version 50. When trying to update on Windows without an active paid plan, Creative Cloud does not allow to update unless one subscribes to XD and starts the 7-day trial. Others with an active paid plan reported they could update, but have to subscribe in order to use XD. Here is already an ongoing discussion about this matter.

Another customer reports:

 

"You CANNOT open XD from CC panel anymore, the only option is 'Try' which leads you down the select subscription plan.

 

However if you open XD manually (like from start menu on windows) you can open it. In XD [version 50], it still shows me on the Starter plan."

 

Does this work for folks here as well?

Yes, opening Adobe XD from the windows menu works for me. It does open a dialog saying "Your trial has ended" or something, but you can just close that dialog and continue to use XD. Thanks for this tip!

I have a feeling that Adobe had retracted the "starter plan" a while ago and replaced it with standard seven-day trial:
