Hi! We have a designer that moved on and left us with a nice XD "Master Style Guide" file that has all the Assets in the Assets panel on the left.
How do we share this file with others so that they can use the same items? (We have access to the account.)
Our hope is that when creating a new XD file for this project, the other designers can load the assets from the "Master Style Guide". The Master is in the Cloud, we have invited the other designers to the file, they can open it but are unable to start a new file and import the assets (using the + at the top right of the Assets panel). 
Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
 
We would like to keep it with the one file and not have everyone with a new copy (unlinked) of the Master.

I found what was causing the issue. The "master" file keeps losing it's "sync".

If the owner of the "master" goes to the gear icon in CC Desktop and selects "Syncing" then pauses the syncing and restarts it, the files other developers have created will then start seeing the changes to the Assets. We are having the lead designer that owns the file do this stop/start resync weekly or sooner if the sync stops.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We do have an option to create and share reusable assets and also you can link assets from the master source. For more information on that you can refer to this help article: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/xd/help/linked-assets.html

 

If you are still unable to link the assets, I'd request if you can try creating a new file, copy all the contents and then invite everyone to that file and see if that works.

 

Regards

Rishabh

We tried creating a new file but the problem with that is that the files already created using assets from the "old" file don't recognize the assets from the new file as the same ones because I'm sure they have different IDs in the code background. We don't want our designers to have to take the amount of time needed to link everything to the new document assets only to have it fail again.

I did find a solution and posted it below. The issue is that the "master" file goes "out of sync".

Thanks!
