Hi there, when I share my Xd project with a client, the link provided by you are too slow, At first, I thought it could be the resolution of my images, so I did resize all of them to a very basic resolution, however, the slow loading is still persists. this is very annoying for clients and also for the designer.
Can anyone give me any advice? is this happen to all of you guys?

We are sorry to hear you are having trouble loading the links in XD. We would like to know a few more details like-
We will try our best to help.
Thanks for ask,
What is the size of the file that you are sharing?
The majority links I shared are similar to this one
Is it happening with all the links that you share that are taking long to load or with this specific file?
A: Yes this is happening with all Project links. Approximately 18 seconds to open. then sometimes to access another page takes 3 to 5 seconds or more.
Have you tried opening the links in any other browser?
I opened it in different browsers even internet explorer and the range varies only for 2 seconds less.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Everyone on our team has the same problem. Developers are complaining about how slow everything loads... we have had to export to PDF, which defeates the purpose. Our Prorotypes typically have 10 pages but even just a couple pages feels laggy.
We are experiencing the same issue. This is a recent problem, I would say the past 5 days have been particularly poor. This has been tested in both Chrome and Safari and we are finding that the load speed on average is 15 minutes for a 5 page propotype.
Currently unable to use XD prototyping for our clients, this is really poor.
Same problem here!!!!!
If you are still facing this issue, can you share your links with me over a private message for testing?
Same problem here.. Tooks around 5-10 seconds to load the hotspots/links.. design is already loaded 😞
Having the same issue here. Desktop web page, only 3 artboards, takes over 3 minutes to load.
Could you share the link, so I can verify it ?

I got the same problems!
What's more, it also got the same problem of another post: it can only be opened on the desktop browser
(took some time to be opened); but cannot be opened on the phone (tried both safaris, chrome in devices such as iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 6, Samsung and LG).
I send you link in private message, pls check, thanks!
Thanks for the answer.
Yes, here is the link.
Last year I was working with that file and had no problem. This year pick up that file to make modifications, and add animations in some parts. I also understand that as I import everything from Illustrator, I have many formats and layers that could slow down the loading and viewing process. But the strange thing is that before it did not happen. I'm still cleaning everything anyway.
What do you think?
Thanks for sending the Preview link 🙂
I tested the preview on my desktop (MacBook, Catalina, Safari, everything up to date), and it took about 25 seconds to load. The first 10 seconds look promising; the spinner turns quickly, but then comes to a halt, moves again a bit after 10 more seconds, halts again for another 5 seconds, and then the first artboard (the splash screen) stumbles onto the screen.
However, all further taps in the preview respond swiftly, with no poblems.
On the mobile phone (iPhone 8, all up to date) a similar pattern occurs, but after 25 seconds of waiting, moving, waiting, moving, another 10 seconds pass, and then an error is displayed (see below).
On my tablet (an oldie, iPad Air 2, but with everything up to date), the pattern repeats but muuuuchchchh slloooowwer. After a few MINUTES (I almost gave up) the spinner disappears and I see a flash of the splash screen, which dispappears again and returns after another minute or so. The spinner in between is hardly turning. But then the splash screen returns, and becomes interactive ! The rest of the preview is quite responsive again.
So the MacBook and iPad succeeded in starting the preview after respectively a long and veeerryyy long while. The iPhone just gave up:
Hope this helps diagnosing the problem. The size of the file itself doesn't seem very large to me. Or have you been using super hi-res pictures for that fabric on the splash screen and other products ? They might take a while to load from the Adobe servers and eventually render in the browser engine, and they can even be too much for certain browser configurations...
Maybe you'll allow me a sneak peek into the original file ?
BTW, my Internet speed is constantly around 280 Mbps, so that can't be a hindrance.
Really really really appreciate for your prompt reply and analysis on this special moment and not to mention Saturday afternoon 🤗
Your guess is just like what I am speculating. I also uploaded it to Zeplin for checking the file.
The first 2 boarding pages are missing in Zeplin as well.
Here is the screenshot of the files:
I made the pattern by repeat the grid from XD in a super tiny pixel 3x3.
However, may I ask one more question, normally, the app design wouldn't support such a tiny grid pattern?
If it is the cause, I might need to adjust the design of the landing page.
Thanks Peter for your time on detecting this issue for me 🙂
Ha, I came to that same conclusion 🙂
What a whopping Repeat Grid that is !
I removed it from that splash page (and elsewhere) and your puppy is flying again...
Also try to bring down the images a notch in resolution and empty space around it.
Large files also slow down the process...
Try designing the pattern in Illustrator and bring it in as a PNG file.
Yes, the repeat grid is amazing right 😂
Thanks for your GREAT advice.
I will redesign that on Illustrator for sure.
Thanks once again for your great help!
Same problem. Especially when I view the design link on my mobile browser.
But perhaps not the same cause...
Could you please tell and preferably also show a little more of your design ?
Or even better: give the link to verify it. I don't have a crystal ball or something... 😉
The team has logged a bug for this issue and is working on it. You may definitely see improvements in the future releases of XD.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
So, this thread is locked: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/share-why-are-the-prototype-links-are-loading-too-slow-in-xd...
However, it doesn't seem like it was ever resolved. We're having this problem with all of our designs and it's a real challenge showing prototypes to customers. I noticed that some Adobe folks chimed in and privately requested files, but nobody ever claimed the issue was fixed. Please advise. We cannot post our proprietary designs in public, but I'd be happy to share privately. Hopefully, somebody can help with this, as this a real problem.
Thank you - Matt

Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear you are having trouble with prototype loading very slow. The thread was locked because in past there was an outage which affected prototype not loading and instead of replying to all the posts we have merged all the outage related post to a single post. We have unlocked the thread now.
However, could you please share the prototype link with me over a private message so that I can test at our end? What is the OS and XD version of your machine?
Note: Please share the url of the post with me over a PM for reference.
We will try our best to help.
Thank you, Harshika. I will send you a private message.
