Although I do enjoy the feature to coedit in the real time with my colleagues I have hard time finding the perfect workflow. My main issue is with sharing permissions—why can only the owner of the file create links?
This really messes up with ability to seamlessly work on the common file, e.g. UX designer works on the wireframes and at some point invites me to coedit the file with them. As a VD I help to evolve the wireframes and create functional mockups. At the end of the day I'm the one who creates design handoff. In order to be able to create links on my own, I have to duplicate the file. This, together with very untuitive way the Creative Cloud app manages access to "Shared with you" files (no way to organize them—put into folders, etc.) couses a huge mess in a very short time. (Don't even ask me what happens if something needs fixing afterwards!)
Another issue is somehow connected with it. Let's say we create a Design System. What happens if the owner of the file becomes unavaliable? There's no easy way (at least that I know of) to transfer ownership of the file. I have to "Save as…" to make myslef an owner of the new file. But then all the links and Libraries are broken.
At this point I really don't know if it's just me expecting to much or the feature was meant for something different. If anyone shares similar experience, please let me know. Also suggestions to how can I improve the workflow minding the limitions are welcomed!

Hi, Adobe XD currently only allows file owners to create links.
