but I couldn't get anything to work. I switched to version 41.1.12 and everything works normally, but versions 42.0.22 and 42.1.22 crash immediately as the app opens. The app doesn't even get as far as showing the Xd logo, the window turns white then black and then sends me to an adobe crash reporting window that I can't interact with and then after a few seconds everything disappears. I need to access shared cloud documents for work, so sticking with the old version is not an option.
