Hey just wondering quickly if anyone over at the development team at Adobe XD know what they're doing. Because the support people were unhelpful.
I'm leaving my role at my company, and have to transfer ownership of our design system and design files to the remaining members of our teams, so they don't have to spend 3 months updating links for our developers.
But this wasn't thought of, because XD wasn't built for designers who do professional work. It was built for people who want to pretend to be designers and post pretty pictures on Dribbble. Scale, who needs that. We can just create a program that lags.
Saving local is a waste of time because all the links will be dead. Saving the design system local, means I'm killing all the links to our base components. Utterly useless. Thanks Adobe.
Because for some stupid reason, RELINK TO XXXX isn't an option in the dropdown. CHANGE OWNER also not there. Wow, way to drop the ball. But heh, can always post suggestions on User Voice, cause "someone" reads that right.
I'm not sure if anyone can transfer ownership of the documents without adding hours and hours of work for someone. Because obviously XD is a dumpster fire.
More just wanted to warn people to change applications while they still can.

As a fundamental core of collaborative design people leaving teams is a norm and the fact that the user voice request has been sitting there since 2019, I call BS on anything there being paid attention to. NOTHING has been updated there in the last several months. XD has become the thing that cost me time in design. This was just the last straw. It is not worth sticking around to see if Adobe adds essential functionality in 3 years time.
