Adobe XD Keeps Freezing Constantly

Newer user to Adobe XD. I have an XD file now that's grown to only about 180MB, but it's gotten to the point where it's constantly causing Adobe XD to freeze, sometimes for several minutes at a time. Random actions seem to trigger freeze - deleting elements and making large symbols (this can sometimes cause it to freeze for several minutes), moving elements, editing elements, everything seems to randomly cause it. It sort of acts the same as when it's trying to save, so I'm wondering if those actions are triggering some autosave (which would normally be beneficial) that's causing this. Closing the application and then reopening it seems to fix the problem for about 10 minutes before it starts to occur again. So, I'm having to constantly close XD and reopen to work with it. I'm editing the file on our local machine too on SSDs, not over the network or anything (seems to make no difference either way though).

I've attached a gif whereyou can see this happening. In it I'm clicking constantly but nothing is happening. This was triggered simply from changing the font family on a text box. At the end you can see where it unfreezes and then all of my click actions take place all at once.

I have a windows 10 PC with all of the latest windows/video driver/adobe updates, specs are 32GB of ram, 2GB AMD video card, and intel i7-6700k. This doesn't seem to occur on other PCs we've tried. I've rebooted, made sure almost nothing else was running, and the problem still occurs. I've tried completely removing and reinstalling XD as well. No other programs or adobe programs give me this issue.

Also another weird issue that we notice is that our keyboard shortcuts randomly change. We use spacebar+click to drag a lot, and suddenly that changes to the zoom-in shortcut, and other normal ctrl+ keyboard shortcuts just stop working for (what seems like) a set of time until it works again. This we've reproduced on several PCs with several different users.

FYI. I experience Adobe XD freezing on a document as well - I didn't realize it ever "came back" as I would just kill it (losing my work). Very frustrating.

This appears to be a widespread problem. It might be helpful to look at an individual file, but it appears to be triggered by many things. In my case, I just tried to save it locally. I'm on Mac Catalina, not Windows. Clearly, this is a problem with the XD app itself and not with an isolated

individual file. Please let us all know what you find out because it is unusable right now and it looks like a useful app in concept.

Thanks,

MHBrown

Currently experiencing the exact same issue. XD usually starts functioning after about 30 to 45 seconds of waiting.

For anyone who finds this, ended up narrowing the problem down to my specific Windows 10 user account on my PC. If I created another account and opened XD there then I would not have any of these issues (except the keyboard shortcut issue I mentioned). What actually causes the problem, Adobe doesn't know either, so I'll just have to deal with setting everything up on another user account and deleting my old one I guess.
