Please, FIX THIS!
Please let us save XD files for older versions OR change file format that it could be opened with older versions!! (Works great in Photoshop...)

This is a joke... really thinking about migrating to a different UI software.
As adobe XD developers updates the software and completely disregard gamepad developers, they should, at least, give us the opportunity to revert our files to a previous version. Now it does not work, its completely messed up, I cannot work, and I cannot use an older version. I am here considering my options, using Framer, figma, or creating my file from scratch .... they are all bad. We do need to be able to revert our files to an older version.
Please let us save our XD file on an oldest version.
Explaining my case:
I had my prototype that was working properly. You guys made the update, now I can´t work.
I noticed sometime later that my issue was the update.
I tried to revert Adobe XD to the latest stable version.
I cannot open my file there anymore because I saved it on an updated version.
Now I have 2 options: Wait you guys to fix my issue.
Redo my 7months prototype in another tool.
I wish I have a third option:
Save my XD file in an older version and come back to work.
The latest version of XD 40.1.22 has a bug where my cloud documents aren't able to be shared with other contributors to the project. So when I rollback to the previous version (where this wasn't an issue) I now can't open the document. It's kinda ridiculous. The idea of cloud collaboration is broken. There's a pandemic. We can't get into our offices/studios to collaborate. The fundamental feature of this app's usefulness is borked. Please fix.
pleaseeeeee fix it

- possibility to save a version of my data that is compatible with older versions of XD (like IDML for IND)
Newer computers can only install earlier versions of programms till a concrete version. If you dont reach the version of your "older" computers you cant cooperate between these computers. That makes it difficult to update single devices or buy newer devices if you cant make them work together.
I had the same problem. Fu*k off adobe.
Echoing all the other comments- remotely working and spent hours on a file my supervisor can't edit because enterprise accounts can't be updated with the same speed. Now I come off looking like I offered a design solution for our team that wasted everyone's time and money!
We've release a service that makes files compatible with older versions: https://xd2sketch.com/open-xd-file-old-corrupted
March 2021 and this issue still persists. I work in two computers with different OS and therefore one has newer versions. Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator all allow you to save in older versions. Why can`t XD do the same?? It`s ridiculous. It makes the software unusable.
I had the same problem and I found THE solution for that: f*ck XD, use FIGMA

When I worked in an IT support role back in the 1990's we had a problem with different versions of MS Word used throughout the enterprise and home locations. Remember Word 95, Word 97, Word 2000 etc? It was a real headache.
But things matured over time and compatibility issues got eliminated.
Now over 20 years later Adobe are giving us the same problem.

Sometimes when you share your work with others, you may find yourself in a pickle if both of you aren't running the same version of the program.
It's understandable that an older version wouldn't be compatible with a newer one, as it has new features, changed code, etc.
However, I see no reason why we shouldn't allow a newer version to be compatible with an older one. After all, a newer version should have all the same features, and any code changes should be archived somewhere anywhere.
Why not instead make a little warning for the user with a newer version stating that the document was created with an older version, and therefore some functions and features may not be available, and then temporarily open the document using the older version of the program.
I can't open a v37 XD file with my v36 xd app !!!! :-(
Adobe has not understood the big companies that manage updates with a small delay compared to the release of new versions of Adobe
Respond and quickly correct it
