Are Libraries really this bad or is this a bug?

Hello all!

I use both Sketch and XD, but being a PC user I am on XD quite a bit, working in version 34.1.12.9.

  1. I created and published a library.
  2. Used a component in a few other XD files and saved them.
  3. Selected the Edit the main source on one of the components from one of those documents.
  4. The original library file opened and I made changes to the component and saved the lilbrary. Then...nothing.
  5. No updates, no blue circle indicating an update, no messages, and absolutely no method for pushing these updates to the documents that are linked to this component.

I have searched to see if there is some method for doing this, but all text indicates this should be automatic like it is in Sketch.

If I am doing this wrong please let me know. Thank you!

Looks like these might be known issues? https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/known-issues.html.

In the process of updating a book so I want to have the easiest method laid out. Ugh!

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. This is not expected and it looks like you are following the correct workflow so could you please share a few more details like:

 

  1. The version of the Operating System.
  2. Is this happening with a specific file or multiple files?
  3. Could you please sign out of XD and Adobe CC Desktop app, close CoreSync, and all Adobe related processes from the Task Manager/Activity Monitor, and then sign back in on Adobe CC desktop app to launch XD from there and let us know if you are able to see the changes.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Hello Rishabh,

I did all this. I exited anything down in the Task Manager that had Adobe in the name, Quit All Adobe apps, and signed out of the Creative Cloud and signed back in. Components are still not updating, or providing any indication that an update was made 😞

Oh, and one more thing. I am experiencing this on the Mac platform as well. So maybe I am doing something wrong? Please review the steps I took. This is the method I have been working with libraries but perhaps the workflow has changed? I searched Adobe help and I seem to be following the right steps.
