@tharun5DA7  Had the exact same issue on windows 10, would get this error msg: "Exporting from XD failed Try exporting using our new XD plugin, currently on beta. The new plugin is built to solve most common export issues. For any questions, contact us at support@zeplin.io" In a nutshell, Zeplin standard  XD export method seems broken, the work around is using the plugin.

Have you selected an artboard or a layer within the artboard before trying to export? If you are, and it still doesn't work, send me your Adobe ID, location, and phone number over a private message. We will get in touch with you for investigation.

Hi Nanda,

A similar issue has been reported here on this link: - Latest version of XD is incompatible with latest version of Zeplin – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Req... Could you please confirm if this is the same issue that you are facing? If yes, Please vote for this bug and share your comments with the following information:

  • Version of Adobe XD
  • Version of OS
  • Steps to reproduce the issues
  • Expected result
  • Actual result
  • XD file, video or GIF capturing the issue (optional)

I would also request please check out "Update #3" By Ole, and see if the workaround could be of any help to you.

If this isn't related, then we have your details already, we would further escalate it to our 1:1 support team.

Thanks,

@aldos33722146 as some one who just went through this problem I suggest that you open a ticket with Adobe. They were able to resolve the problem while Zeplin were at a loss for solutions. It will save you a lot of time. I also suggest to @Preran to follow up with Adobe to see what they have done in my case case number: CRM:01072000002671 it took some time but it got resolved. None of the solutions listed above in the thread worked.

HI,

Do you have a case number from your interaction with the Adobe team? If so, would it be possible to share that with me over a private message along with the URL of this post for reference? To send a private message, click my picture and use the Message button.

Hi I don’t have a case with Adobe team. I was talking with Zeplin for about 2 weeks and they couldn’t figure it out.

Should I open a case? Can you direct me to where I can do this?

Thanks!

The team investigated a few users with this issue, and this is what they recommend

  • Ensure that you have the latest versions of Adobe XD and Zeplin installed on your computer
  • Check if the folder ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe XD CC is writable for the current user account
    • On your Mac OS, open Finder.
    • Select Go > Go to Folder and enter ~/Library
    • Right click the Adobe XD CC folder and see if it is unlocked.
  • If the folder permissions appear correct, check if there is a ‘contentaccess’ subfolder inside there. If it’s missing, reinstall Zeplin.  If it’s present, share the contents of the folder with me over a private message using the instructions in my previous post.

Steps would be basically the same for problems with any of the other partner apps as well (Avocode, Sympli, ProtoPie, or Kite).

Thanks,

Preran

Hi Preran,

I did all the steps you described. Additionally, it appeared during the reinstallation of the Zeplin update. Everything works perfectly :). Now you have to work and wait until you can import PSD to XD;)

Hi Krelke, just to clarify: did you change any folder permissions/settings in the second step, or was everything there correct already?  I am curious whether reinstalling Zeplin was the only step needed, or if there were also problems with the settings folder on disk that needed to get corrected first.

Thanks!

- Peter

Hi Peter,

I can't get an export to Zeplin option even after reinstalling.

I am not on a Mac though, so I couldn't follow the steps described above by Preran. Do you have an equivalent for WIndows ?

Thanks,

- Mat

As usual Windows is behind, if only my team was on Mac I would have taken Sketch licenses, just for the principle of paying my subscriptions the same price as a Mac user while having 2 times less features...
