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

I also have the same issue. This is a file I've been working on for a month now for my company and starting again would be highly inconvenient, I've tried all the steps above. The file loads completely then shows "There was an error opening the file (filename).xd Error 47"

 

Don't know what may have caused this or how to fix it.

If this error message means that the document does not exist, something is very wrong. I get this error message by clicking on a share invitation link created and sent from message@adobe.com.

I have the same scenario but neither the file is a cloud ver, nor that it doesn't exist. It's a 67 MB file and damn I lost all my work.

Hi elainecc​ - Am I correct in saying this functionality is only available between team members? Ie two designers with two different adobe ID's can't edit a file collaboratively?

If this is the case, the error revealed should say so, and not that the document is unable to open.

No, that's incorrect. The problem happens if someone has two different Adobe IDs with the same Email address. This happens occasionally in enterprise organizations. I was inquiring as to that.

Can you check if you are logged in using the ID with which you subscribed to it? If you have multiple Adobe ID, ensure that you are using the relevant ID to log in.

Thanks,

We are experiencing this error now. How do we go about checking the relevant ID being used when sharing?

Hi, 

 

We're having this problem across our organsiation at the moment - it is causing massive problems.

 

Everything was fine until last week. Now we cannot effectively share documents across the distributed (Enterprise) team. I really really need a solution v.quickly - being strongly pushed to move to different software (which i don't want to do) but am swimming against the tide here.

 

There are multiple accounts associated with each persons email address. This is a result of the organisation moving from std licensing to enterprise licenses with single sign on integration.

 

  • When I enter a user's email 2 entries appear 
  • These used to highlight which was associated with an enterprise license in brackets - now it doesn't

 

We've spent hours and hours trying different combinations of logging in / out of accounts to ensure that everyone is logged in to their enterprise accounts - both those sharing and those being invited. Everyone has updated to the latest version of XD

 

  • Old file shares seem to be ok in some instances
  • Newly created files will not open and we get the error message 
  • The file creator can open the file fine
  • Everyone invited gets the error when trying to open the doc in XD
  • Invited user can download and access from their 'Shared with you' section on assets.adobe.com

 

Whislt downloading the files to local machines from assets.adobe.com works fine, this is not a appropriate solution - completely negates the value of working together across files or even synching files....

 

I need a solution quickly please.

 

How can this issue with multiple accounts be resolved?

 

Thanks

 

Liam

First off, you can work with your IT Admin to file a support ticket through the admin console - if you're on an enterprise account, this will be the fastest way to get hands on support.

 

They'll be able to ask you the following questions:

  • Are you trying to use group invitations?
  • Are you sending individual invitations to people?
  • Are you saving local documents to the Creative Cloud Files, or are you sharing documents using the Invite to Edit popup in the document itself?

 

If it's Invite to Edit (instead of CC Files), my recommendation is to invite people by Email address, but do not accept the autocomplete if it is offered to you - type in the entire Email address. Once the invitation is sent, click on the Email or the desktop notification, and the document should open successfully.

 

In either case, I'd advise that you go ahead and file that enterprise support ticket.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the advice.

 

Will try the email address approach and let you know if we have any success, whilst i see if i can get IT to file the support ticket.

 

In answer to the questions:

 

  • Are you trying to use group invitations?
    • Tried inviting multiple people at once (no success)
  • Are you sending individual invitations to people?
    • Tried inviting people one by one - had more success in that some could open others not - could never get everyone on the same doc
    • Tried with different doc 'owner' accounts - same problems - some could access others could not
  • Are you saving local documents to the Creative Cloud Files, or are you sharing documents using the Invite to Edit popup in the document itself?
    • Always Creative Cloud Files (created new and saved to cloud)
    • Tried inviting online via the cloud doc on assets.adobe.com
    • Tried inviting from within doc when open in XD
    • Tried setting doc (in XD) as Coediting enabled - seemed to start working for some users (but not 100% sure as desperately trying lots of options)

 

Thanks again

Hi,

 

Quick update:

 

Installed latest release of XD (14/4/20) and by following the advice the issue seems to be resolved. In summary:

  • Updated XD to the newly released version
  • Removed all invited users from the docs
  • Re-invited users one by one (by repeating the invite process multiple times) from within XD
  • Fully typed user email addresses (rather than use the suggestions supplied)
  • Ensured that co-editing was enabled in the share menu (in XD)
  • Logged into assets.adobe.com and opened the invite menu for the doc
  • Changed the user permissions for the invited users from 'can share' to 'can edit' (there doesn't seem to be anywhere to do this within XD)

 

Not sure which (if any) of these steps made the difference but now working

 

Thanks

 

Liam

The project worked fine yesterday, but when I wanted to start working today it couldn't open the document anymore.
The project is stored in the Creative Cloud Storage and I don't have a local copy. All my work is gone.

This is the second time this happens this weekend, after a crash yesterday I lost all my work and had to start over again, because even though the last saved version of my project included the lost work, I could not get it back.

I hope someone has a fix for this, because I don't wanna start working on this project all over again a third time. Thanks.

EDIT: I'm on the latest version of Windows 10, Creative Cloud and Adobe XD. All my drivers are up to date.

Hi ColinDeD,

Thanks for reporting this issue and sharing the screenshot here. 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 and other than this information we would need the following logs 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.

Thanks,

Atul_Saini

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. Could you please confirm if that was a local document or cloud document? If it was a cloud document, please check if you are able to see the file here: https://assets.adobe.com/

Awesome, could you also run the log collector tool from this link: - -https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html and share the link of the logs along with the version of Coresync?
