Ability to turn off Coediting
Add the ability to turn off coediting. It's creating all kinds of issues, and can't be turned off. It's absolutely appalling that this feature would be introduced without the ability to turn it off after enabling it.
Hey, like others couldn't have imagined that the file will no longer work locally after enabling co-editing. Kinda bummed about losing the version history like that.

turned this on our core design system file. now the file thats linked to lots of projects is constantly trying to reconnect. unimaginable that you would give users access to turn on a beta feature without turning it off. Also you should give CLEAR warnings as to the ramifications of a beta feature if you dont allow them to turn it off. I was thinking ah this could be nice lets see what it can do - not lets irrevocably change my file and break the workflow of 30+ users!
Go to FILE > SAVE AS and rename it and save it. somewhere in you Adobe Creative Cloud folder for example, the window will still be open. After that select FILE > SAVE AS and select cloud document.
Coediting is disabled.

Coediting was enabled by default in my project after the new update 26.0.22 and whenever I lock the screen and come back in 5 minutes or so I get a dialog box saying "Trying to Reconnect. Coediting is unavailable while offline. I don't have any firewalls set up nor there is slower connection speed.

Yes please!! SO frustrating, I can't make any changes to my design system reliably now!
I'm also facing same issue like others. I can't edit file while there is limited network, Its keep on asking me to save as the file. The file contains publishing details which we already shared with clients. We just need to update and republish the files.
Coediting turn off option is really required, I don't know how adobe can do such small mistake. Please release new version without coediting or fix the issue and release asap.
upvote, it should be implemented as workaround until the co-editing functionality is not tested and debugged properly

Yes, this is a disaster. How can @adobe give a feature to turn on but forgot to give the turn off function...
When are we getting this functionality? This Coediting is a disaster!

I can't imagine a company pushing a beta feature without an option to revoke it. It is mind blowing, exactly what happens when a company gets in a monopoly position and stop carring for anything. Really apalling.
Coediting is making it impossible for me to do anything right now! How can I turn this off?!
Please let me disable coediting! While the function is needed to manage a design system, it is causing so many issues I can't even edit files. It is so jumpy. This is a disaster for my workflow. I'm going to need to have local files only and manually copy things over. No cloud or team sharing until you can get it straight.
I have enabled co-editing on one of my files and with my questionable internet connection, it's causing no end of trouble. I need to be able to turn off the feature for this file. Or, I need to have a more graceful handling of bad connections.
I'm continually prompted to discard my work or rename my file, but since this file is my one, central, linked asset styleguide for several other files, I can't rename the file and have that still be the case.
If I had a flexible way to choose a replacement linked file and have all linked assets and components gracefully update, that would be one way to work around this problem.
