Is it possible to install the Adobe XD app on a mac without the Creative Cloud crap? Creative Cloud is running a lot of processes and slowing down my mac. It's always whining about not being able to install updates. I have to click on update button several times to start updating XD. I think this whole Creative Cloud software is  completely unnecessary for me.

I am sorry, Madurangae, but the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop application is required to download, install, and utilize Adobe XD.Are you seeing the slow performance when utilizing Adobe XD, or is the slow performance systemwide after the Creative Cloud desktop app opens?  What operating system are you using Adobe XD on?

Hi Maruispet,

 

Sorry to hear you're facing slow performance issue in XD when Creative Cloud desktop is open. Would you mind telling us which actions are slow in XD? What is the OS and XD version of your machine? 

 

We'll try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

I have the same issue. I guess I will have to switch to something else. CC has slowed down all of our computers. I can upgrade mine, but not paying thousands to upgrade all of our, just to have Adobe. There are other solutions.

Came here looking for solution, but looks like I got an answer instead!

Why in the world would Adobe do that? There is a concept called 'ease of use'!
