I need to switch off the ability to save in cloud storage in Adobe XD. Is it possible?

Thank you for reaching out and using Adobe XD. You can save the file as a local document instead of saving as a cloud document. However, your Creative Cloud membership comes with cloud storage that you can choose to use for backups, link sharing, folder collaboration, and more. The Creative Cloud for desktop application makes it easy to synchronize your local files with your Creative Cloud storage. So if you choose to sync your files to Creative Cloud, you still retain a local copy of your files.
Hope it helps.
How do I save the file as a local doc within the XD app? The last time it tried to save as a cloud document I lost multiple hours of work as the file won't open again and just sits and loads forever in adobe XD. When downloaded from my account cloud documents it's missing a bunch of work. I generated A shared link and that has all of the correct content... Please fix the super broken cloud documents and library assets or let me turn it off! It's a nightmare when trying to share other documents with team members on other accounts when all the library assets are missing. So Frustrating.
I totally understand your frustration. This new feature of having the default save command save to Creative Cloud is terribly annoying and like the user above I don't want to save my XD documents to Creative cloud as a default!!!!!!!
I can't stress this enough. It is slow and buggy.
Have the standard save shortcut defaulting to saving to Creative Cloud is bad UI (especially and ironically bad for a UI design app).
I've been using XD from the beginning and even had an idea or two implemented. When I first found that the new version was doing this I was like WHAAAAT! This is quite a blunder...PLEASE PLEASE correct it. My suggestion would be to put it as the secondary option NOT THE DEFAULT.
Saving automatically to the cloud is not a good feature. XD needs to give users the OPTION to save locally or to the cloud when they first save a document. Otherwise, those of us who want or need a local copy of the file have to go through a number of extra steps in order to not only get a local copy, but also to remove the cloud version.
Furthermore, it's inconsistent with other Adobe apps. Ps, Ai, and others offer to save to cloud or local drive, so why can't XD?
In addition to all that was said, I cannot Command+Save over a original local document. It fails and wants to save to the Cloud. Furthermore, when I save over the working, local document... XD gets rid of my design/dev review link (even past links). I have to make a new link every time which is SO frustrating for all. Does anyone have a solve for the live link updates? If I could at least fix that, I would have less of a headache.
We are sorry for the frustration. We are having the similar discussion here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/adobe-xd-saving-options-are-changed-after-xd-29/td-p/1114628... regarding the new saving option in XD.
We would request you to please join the discussion.
How do I disable it. So frustrating. Also have to create a new prototype link each time it auto-resaves 20 times a day..
