Remove auto save
Sometimes I open files just to copy assets to another file, and move things around. I don't undo that coz sometimes I move stuff without even being aware. But when I close XD it doesn't even ask if I want to save changes. It automatically saves changes I didn't intend to save. It's very frustrating. Please give option to disable automatic save. If it automatically saves a copy on crash it's understandable, but this saves the main file. All unintended changes get saved.

Can you please add an option to disable auto save , whenever it saves the app gets laggy and sometimes froze , PLEASE add an option to disable auto save , it really annoy me and destroy my workflow , i'll will stop using XD until you provide a better solution. ( The best tool to create cool UI/UX doesn't have this basic feature , please for the love of god add an option to turn off auto save ) , Thank you :)
YESS its really frustrating, and keeps uploading the file to the cloud sucking up all the megabytes and suddenly I need to take a loan to pay my internet bills
the BEST USER EXPERIENCE software doesn't have this basic UX feature !!
Yes have an option to turn this off, auto-saving every few seconds is extremely distracting and breaks the workflow. Much easier to just manually saving.
This has been requested ages ago and you still haven't looked into a simple feature change!
So I measured it on a stopwatch. I have an autosafe every 2 minutes and 59 seconds. Thank you.
So thank you, because of your stupidity I can't deliver my work in time. Thank you. Please don't touch the program anymore.
I can't work like this when it just saves on every move
What a bullshit. I have autosave every 10 minutes. And the autosafe stuck my document so I can't work for 10 seconds!!!

Please Adobe.. You should be able to set a flag in settings to disable this feature. Continuous saving is a smart feature, but not all the time...
OMG YES! -There HAS to be a way to turn off autosave. Just now I accidentally deleted everything in my file that has taken me weeks of work and of course that's when XD decided to autosave and I lost EVERYTHING!
I am totally freaking out right now.
Same thing here. I just opened a master file from my boss and made tweaks and edits and just realized that it has all been autosaved. I had to spend nearly an hour getting that file back to where it was and I'm not sure I got it all. Please make autosave an option!
Yes, please, MAKE THIS AN OPTION. This is really frustrating when I'm just trying same things, don't want to save it at all (OR I "save as..." and name it as version 2.0) and close the file. I just lost entire file because of that.

Auto-saving causesremoves focus when I'm naming layers and assets. Let me finish typing!!!
Auto save is ruining my life right now please make it stop
I think it would be more useful if ‘auto save’ becomes a setting. Some people want it, some don’t. I don’t!
I’m very glad I have a good backup system, because I was working in a file, making it ready for the next version, saved the new version, but my previous version was auto saved, so the drawings in the old version were gone …
So if auto save becomes a setting, everybody can choose how to use it?

This is a user expectation to not lose work and also not have temporary edits commited without saving them. And besides, it doesn't save everything anyway either! Citing Windows UWP patterns as the fault of the user is disrespectful to the trade of user experience design. If you had tested this with experienced designers you would have discovered this earlier, before you released it to the world and cost us all a bunch of time (and yes money) trying to recreate or uncreate temporary work that UWP may have decided to commit or not. The request is to give us control of save, not some random cloud backup process that is dependent on internet connections etc.
