Windows 10, Xd version 22.214.171.124. Since 1 or 2 updates ago, "Update All" button no longer updates anything. Some assets can be manually upaded from Assets panel but others refuse to update at all. Some of the assets that won't update at all have new "component states" feature enabled, so this is possibly related to further bugginess in this still-half-baked feature.

I am having this problem too. If you click on the individual update button, it still works for most of the components. But it seems like some of the components are stuck and not updating.
Perhaps I am naive or stupid, but this seems like an obvious bug that in a properly run software company would disqualify a release from going live. I can name others, When components replaced symbols, existing symbols were so badly correupted that it cost me dozens of hours and my employers tens of thousands of dollars of my time. Component states were released half-baked. To me it poses this question: is there any QA role in the XD team?
One would think, huh? It's now Oct 2020 and this is still a problem. wtf.
Same problem. Updating via individual update button doesn't work either. So basically, the whole components feature is useless at this point. Very time consuming.
We are sorry to hear you're having trouble updating linked components in Adobe XD. We would like to know a few more details like-
We will try our best to help.
I actually tried relinking the assets by using the plus button at the top (illustrated in my beautiful screenshot) instead of updating just the components and that worked!
The source file for the components I was using was created in the XD (24.1.22) and then he updated to the latest version XD (24.2.22). The file I am trying to use them in was created in XD (24.2.22).
I think I can still recreate the problem in one of my documents. I will try to get screenshots or do a screen record.
Thank you. This is a great work around!
This "fix" only works with cloud docs. My company's firewall makes using cloud docs problematic. I should be able to use files on any local shared folder as source docs but Adobe doesn't support this fully.. Another iffy feature decision that Adobe has yet to fix although I requested it months ago.
Doing this removes the "Update all" button but the components that caused the problem from the begining doesn't sync properly with the master components afterward.
This is most certainly not a "correct answer." The only correct answer could be, "We have finally fixed it!"
Hi Harshika. I'd love to have the spare time to do Adobe's QA work for free, but my employer keeps me pretty busy. Perhaps Adobe could hire its own QA team? I can share a few more details. The Update All button no longer works, but I can update most of the components individually. A major time sink but it mostly works. Where it doesn't seem to work is with components previously placed elsewhere that have had the new States added to them in the source file. These won't update, and the states don't appear in the target docs. This suggests yet another bug in the already-buggy-enough States feature. PLEASE start testing your own stuff before you ship it to us!
In Adobe Xd I have a "master component"-document from which I link components to other documents.
A few days a go I started getting issues with certain child components not updating:
Been speaking to Adobe support for 3h and then got disconnected so posting here instead.
Support number: ADB-10006717-T4X4
System info: macOS 10.15.1
Adobe XD version: 126.96.36.199
Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear that you are facing trouble updating the linked components. We have escalated the case to the team and someone from the team will get back to you shotly for the real-time assistance.
Let us know how it goes and the steps that helped you fixed the issue.
I had one of you representatives reach out to me with "a solution": creating new files for all my linked documents and then past the content of my old files into the new file. I tired this for a few of my child files and it initially worked fine (except that all comments was lost in the published spec-file; the extra work of managing and having to share new files with the development team; transferring unresolved comments etc.)
However, opening the newly created files a few days later I now have the same issue with links unable to update. This problem, toghether with all other bugs, is really making it quite impossible for us to use Xd professionally in a reliable way.
Any news on this issue? Or is it time to start looking for alternative solutions?
I have 2 files, one of them with all the master components and the other one with the design. All worked well until I updated Adobe XD to the 188.8.131.52 version.
1. I opened my components file
2. I opened my design file
3. I created a new state for a master component in the components file
4. I save the components file
5. That component is part of more components
6. In the design file, I see the option to update all the affected components
7. I click the "Update" blue button but nothing happens
8. I try to update every component by right-clicking on each and selecting the "Update" option but nothing happens
Hi Mr. Vishu,
Yes, I am, but the differences are:
1. My files were created with the previous Adobe XD version
2. The component that I created a new state for is part of several components
3. The files are not Adobe Cloud documents
This is happening with just some files/components, not with all of them, I don't know why.
Thanks and regards
I'm getting the exact same issue
We are sorry to hear you are facing trouble updating components in Adobe XD. Would you mind trying to sign out of Adobe XD and Creative Cloud and sign back in?
Let us know if that helps.
I can confirm that sign out, then signing back in doesn't resolve the problem.
Thank you for trying the steps. Could you please try creating a new artboard in the child file and copy and paste the component?
Let us know if that helps.
Hi, I tried that during a chat with one of your representatives yesterday and it doesn't work.
