This is a huge issue for me and remains unanswered.

I simply need to know the file path of an XD file which I have open.

I am not opening a file.

My file is open and I am working on it and I need to be sure that I am saving locally NOT to the Cloud or anywhere else.

Just a file path for the file I HAVE OPEN!

(Illustrator has this and it's so easy)

 

Please and thanks.

Hi Martin,

 

Hope you doing good!!

 

If you want to save the file you are working on locally, you can go to File -> Save as Local Document and save it anywhere in your machine.

I am afraid to say that if you are using cloud file, it will be saved in the cloud space and only you can open the file from XD but can not see the file or path for that neither it will be accessible by anyone else. Only it can be seen or edited by corresponding email id in which you have created it.

 

Let us know if you need any further help.

 

Thanks,

Nawneet

No, you have misunderstood the issue. OK - I must be phrasing this incorrectly.

If I am WORKING IN AN XD FILE ie I have it OPEN.

Here is the question --- 'Where can I find the FILE PATH for my OPEN file?'  I need to know where it is stored?

(I suspect there is no way to find out)

 

Thankyou

Hi martinw,

in the home of Adobe XD, in the "Recent" section, below the preview of your file is also reported where it was saved. If it is a file saved on the cloud, you will find it written "Cloud Document". If it is not saved on the cloud, you will find the path where it was saved. Hover over it to see the complete path.

Can you tell me please, when I have my XD document OPEN  and lets say I am working on it - how do I access the 'Home' and 'Preview' screen?

In other words when I am working in my OPEN XD file where do I hover to establish the whereabouts of my file?

Sorry, but XD does not have that feature like many other apps do.

Like Nawneet said if you do Save as Local Document it will show you where the file currently lives. (A Cloud Document has a cloud icon next to the file name.)
