Clear all prototype wires
I would like to be able to clear all prototype wires similar to how the clear all guides option works in other Adobe products.

Killing me. I just need to share assets and the prototype feature has broken that ability

1) Go to the Prototype section. Zoom out to have an overall view of all the artboards.
2) You will not be able to see any of the Prototype lines. Press Command + A (Select All). Now your Prototype wires can be seen. This selects only the prototype wires.
3) Hit Delete.
Be careful that none of your components gets selected. It happened once for me, but no worries. Just hit Command+Z (Undo), go to the Design section and back to Prototype section. Repeat from Step 1.
You can do this, select and copy all artboards and open a new document and paste them into it, the wires will be gone. Its not ideal but it works.
We'd like to see a button to remove all links for highlighted mockups and/or from entire projects. We just ran into an issue when we were trying to review a mockup with about 100 screens but some of the screens had prototype'd links and some didn't so we couldn't review the file because the file itself wouldn't upload. Chatted with support to hear that we had to remove the links from each individual screen and try again... Anyway, one button would have been a lot easier.
Not even just clearing all prototype wires... I somehow have a tap trigger on one of my artboards and I don't know how to get rid of it lol
My problem is that I can't publish all the screens to the Dev doc once one page has been wired, and there's not way to undo that. I came looking for how to clear prototype wires as a solution.
I tried this workaround mentioned previously in the thread with success. I would save the file before starting, just in case.
In the design view
- Select all artboards (avoid Ctrl+A—doesn't always select artboards)
Removes all links.
I don't have a NONE feature (pc). Anyone have a fix for this? I want to clear all my wires.
It doesn't work Ctrl+A+ None, in automated prototype, also Ctrl+X does not work in the same Document, you have to paste in a new document, which you will not have access to previews shared link....

If you select all (Ctrl+A) and open the Destination dropdown menu in the right-hand sidebar, you can select NONE and disconnect every wire throughout your project.

Absolute needed feature to clear all the prototype links...

This is key as copying them to a new file means i loose my symbols/design styles
Often, in the early stages of the design concepting process, I need to completely re-work the user-flow of my design. It would be nice to have a quick way (1-click) to remove all existing links/interactions in my prototype to allow me to re-arrange my art-boards and link them up fresh from scratch, instead of having to manually unlink and re-link every single thing individually.
Any movement in this?
I just want to be able to publish a Developer doc after removing the interaction.
Once you've made an interaction, you can't publish all the artboards unless they are all wired. If you unwire them, you can't publish a Dev Doc anymore.
It's getting very discouraging. Every (and I do mean every) time I do a search on "How to", I end up here in the feature request zone. Up until now, I've been reasonably impressed with how the product has continued to mature, but it hasn't taken me long to discover that XD is still not a viable design tool for professional work.
copy and paste in to new xd file.
When artboards are copied it seems like their respective wires also copy - this makes a huge mess of the flow.
We should either be able to delete all wires (or single ones) so that this can be avoided.
I know it's possible to drag the wire end off the artboard but we NEED to be able to *delete* it completely please. It takes so much time when you have to rewire and try and figure out where your errors are when this is not an option.
so... 18 months later, can we delete a single prototype path in XD now? I didn't find it anywhere...
wow surprised this isn't a feature, it seems like something that would be already there. glad there's still the trick to delete all paste back in but still shouldnt have to do a work around
Hint: Duplicate all artboards, and delete the old ones.
