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. 

  1. Open the same file on a different machine or user account( Windows 10/ Mac). 
  2. 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?

My work is created in Adobe XD and it is saved on the creative cloud. I didn't use the "Sync" feature.

In case if this doesn't help, please share a few more details like:

 

  1. The version of XD and the Operating System.
  2. Is it happening only with Cloud document or local or both?
  3. Are you connected to a private network or a managed network like a work network?

Hi XDers,

I have found that restarting my computer is usually enough to fix this.

Hey guys, have you ever found the solution for "Sorry, we can't open this document". I've followed the suggestion from @Atul_Saini but it won't work.

 

It's already end of 2020 mates, this problem should be solved. Please hire someone from figma or sketch to fix this issue. It looks like a half cook product.

Every time I try to open a file that had a design I need to show a client or developer the file keeps crashing. How am I supposed to rely on a software that keeps crashing at any given time. The cloud service is of no help either

It's almost been 2 years(!!!) since this thread was started and the issue still has not been fixed for me. None of the suggestions in the thread work for me either, since I still need to collaborate and would rather not start a new document every time this bug occurs, which is every few days..

AGREED! I have had this happen a couple times in the last month. Unacceptable. I can download the file locally and open it just fine. Clearly opening XD files from the cloud has a critical bug.

Received the error message text in the subject line "Sorry, we can't open this document"

 

This gives absolutely zero context as to what might be the issue... also considering the document was created on the same computer and account I'm trying to access it from... any help here would be greatly apprectiated.

@Rishabh_Tiwari thanks for suggestion.

I ended up quiting (log-out/log-in) to CC and rebooting mac and it resolved the issue... still not clear what the problem was from the error msg but that fixed it for me and I can access the file now.
