Please stop pushing users to save in the cloud. We know how we want to work, let us choose.

 

Right now any time we start a new doc, Xd automatically saves in the cloud with no input from the user.

 

Also, forcing us to use a 4-key (Cmd+Alt+Shift+S) keyboard combination to save locally (vs Cmd+S) is ridiculous.

 

Please stop forcing this new wave of ideologies on users who have supported Adobe for decades.

 

At minimum, we need the ability to configure these options so it works like every other program we've used for years.

Hi,If it's my "uservoice" shouldn't I have the authority over how things are titled? You're missing the point. I'm not asking how to do something. I'm saying stop doing something because it's very frustrating using a product that forces users to do something that is completely against every other program out there with no way to change it.

Thank you Harshika.


Please change the title back to "Stop forcing us to save in the cloud.", it was written that way for a reason and not meant to be asked as a question like you've changed the title to (How should I stop autosaving to cloud?).

 

I've also posted the UserVoice. Of course, that site has a major UX issue in that it only displays the top items by default, and then any new items are buried. This is a flaw with how that site is ran, and promotes "The rich keep getting richer" concept.

Thanks and take care.

I understand your concern and frustration. Actually there is a reason we retitle the post as it really help us in pulling out reports for our internal team and helps in doing the analysis of the threads on the forums. 

 

Thanks,

Harshika

Hi,


If it's my "uservoice" shouldn't I have the authority over how things are titled?

 

You're missing the point. I'm not asking how to do something.

 

I'm saying stop doing something because it's very frustrating using a product that forces users to do something that is completely against every other program out there with no way to change it. Especially when the program is for UX. Ironic.

 

Forcing the save to the cloud when creating a new file, and not allowing them to save locally is absurd. Do you realize that many people do not want to use Adobe's forced cloud storage, and some simply cannot for security/secrecy reasons? How do you think the current workflow caters to these users? It doesn't. It requires about a dozen extra steps for us. Is that good UX? Don't you see this as something that should be a hi-priority fix? 

 

Lastly, as mentioned elsewhere, the "uservoice" site is critically flawed. It only shows top requests by default. This means virtually every new request is not shown by default. Therefore it gets buried. Are you guys not aware of this? What's the point of submitting requests if they won't have a chance to be heard?

 

Many of us who have supported Adobe for decades are wondering what has happened to Adobe, a once-great company...
