Revert to old link after creating a new link
Hi! I just accidentially created a new link for a project when I intended to update the link. I can not find a way to revert to the old link. This is important in this scenario because we had notes to/from the client in the old link that we now are copy/pasting into the new link, but it would be ideal to simply revert and delete the accidental new link. Thanks for considering this!
Ugh. Please help with this - I just lost 24 pages of review comments.

I agree with many of the comments here. The only addition I have is that it may be nice to be able to name the links so they can easily be referred back to later and updated. For example, "contact flow", "sharing flow", etc. When changes are made in the project related to contacts, I'll know to find and update the "contact flow" link rather than having to maintain a list cross-reference of published links and topics somewhere else.
This should be expanded to link management within the document. To keep the interface clean there should be a toggle to open the links created from that document and you can choose which one to update. This also ensures the user is intentional about changing links and it's not done accidentally.
yes, had just exactly the same problem and do have old files, but about 12 versions, so who knows which has the exact old link I need? not a useful workaround anyway....

+1 the link management for versions is really frustrating when copying old files to start a new stream or for UI kits. I can open a new file but that's just ripe for disaster if someone doesn't know that.

+1 - this could be handy

Our team shares the same XD file for our UI library, but only the person who created can update it. Now I have accidentally created a new link (as update link was not available). Big problem as now we have to update all developers and other designer teams.
this needs to be reconsidered - a proper way to manage published links.
Users should have the ability to not just create new links but update older ones.

I have just done this too. It's really painful.
The shared URL is saved in the file. If you have an old version of the file with the old url, then you could copy your changes across and then reshare from that file. Sorry for the inconvenience!
