All prototype interaction links disappeared after latest release update

Hello,

I have a big project with complex prototype (over 300 screens).  After the new release, my prototype mode does not show any connections in my file, only a starting screen. The desktop preview is working, but the share option does not have the link it is connected to. I am afraid that I have to redo the entire prototype. Any ideas how to fix this?

 

[Update]

Prototype connections not visible issue:

The connections are actually still present. I realised they appear when selecting a single artboard. This was a major change for me as I was used to seeing all the connections visible (in blue lines) when selecting the prototype mode... That is why the the preview on desktop was working - connections were there to begin with.

 

Lost shared link:

In the new version of XD the existing shared link is still absent.  I see only two options: Create New Link and Manage Links. This is still an issue if you are planning to update.

I reverted XD to previous version and the old link is back. 

 

PS: Removing prototype connections view for entire document (when no artboard is selected) was a big change that caused me a lot of frustration. 

 

I posted an update to my issue. The "Desktop Preview" is just the prototype preview on the desktop without publishing it (little play button in the top right corner).

Yes, this happened with me too. Additionally, I am worried I lost my previous link that I shared.

Whoa, that sounds like a disaster !

I hope you haven't overwritten the file yet, and still have a backup of it working safely (at least, in that previous version).

What do you mean by "The desktop preview is working", does it still behave as if all connetions are intact ?

I think if I can identify from what Jleb310ce mentioned, I can view the file on the browser and it is a part of my Adobe XD asset links - additionally, not all connections were working in the preview link on safari browser. However, I didn't have the updated backup and the file is overwritten with a different link. Ugh

May I express a small giggle about this ? 😉

So nothing was gone – just not visible, yet.

Case closed, nothing to solve...
