Hey everyone, Sorry to hear that you're unable to open the file and get an error "Sorry that you are unable to open this document." or  Error 47, unable to open the document." We'll try our best to help you with this.  First, there are two quick solutions which you may try.  Open the same file on a different machine or user account( Windows 10/ Mac).  Download a previous version of the file from version history from assets.adobe.com using these steps (https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/revision-history-in-xd-helps-ensure-peace-of-mind-during-collaboration/m-p/10703548?page=1#M18044...

Hi there! This error message generally means that you don't have permissions to view the document, or that the document doesn't exist. Since you're obviously sharing between team members, is it possible that you have more than one Adobe IDs and are logged into one of them?-Elaine

Hi Johanvanderkolk,

Sorry that you are unable to open the existing document. We would need some information and a few logs to investigate it further.

Could you please share the version of Adobe XD: Go to Help > About XD, exact version of Creative Cloud sync: Open Creative Cloud desktop app, go to Preferences > Creative Cloud > Files? Other than this information we would need the following logs as well.

I am assuming you are using a windows machine. Please share the OS build as well.

  • AdobeXD.log: %localappdata%\Packages\Adobe.CC.XD_adky2gkssdxte\LocalState\
  • ACPLocalLogs:%localappdata%\Packages\Adobe.CC.XD_adky2gkssdxte\LocalState\ACPLocalLogs

Note: For the logs above paste" %localappdata%\Packages\Adobe.CC.XD_adky2gkssdxte\LocalState\ " in the address bar of windows explorer, you would get to the Local State folder where you can find the above logs.

You may upload these logs to CC or Dropbox as a zip file and share the link with me in a private message. Please let me know in case you face trouble grabbing any of the logs.

Meanwhile, I would request you to try to create a new admin user account and check if allows you to open this document, you may also try to open this on a different machine and check if that works.

Thanks,

Atul_Saini

Like Atul said, it would help for us to still have the log files so that we can address the root cause of this issue. You can upload the files to a shared location such as Creative Cloud, and share the link with him over a private message. To send a private message, click Atul's name and use the Message button.

I think this msg - 'sorry can't open this document' occurs when you try to open a cloud document without running your adobe cc app, if  your not signed in or when xd is not connected to cc server.......

whenever i get this msg ill close xd >open cc app >open xd> open cloud document> it runs (you can see cloud docs and can't open it means your internet is so slow or server down.)

if nothing of above works try reinstalling adobe cc.

(I told my exp if nothing works then...ask help from adobe)

Hi Elis,

Sorry that you are still experiencing this issue. Would you mind opening this file on a different machine and check if that works? If it is possible for you, it would be great if you could share the file with us so that we can test it here at our end.

In addition to this, I would also request you to collect the logs mentioned in message number 1 and share the link if the uploaded docs.

Thanks,

Atul_Saini

No I didn't look there. That's not the problem. I got an email and clicked on it. It asked if I wanted to open that file in XD. I said yes, and then it said sorry, can't open. So In XD I went to "shared with me" and saw the file and tried again and again over a couple of days... with the same "sorry can't open that file" error.

I finally followed the tip from the person here and opened the CC app and it worked!

I'm not able to spend a lot of time debugging this for ya'll, but hopefully this is enough info for ya'll to fix it for future users.

Here's my logs

Hi vishnuharidaskarinatt, sorry that you are still not able to load a document and getting this "Sorry cannot open this document" error. Would it be possible for you to try to open this document on a different machine and see if that works?
