Revert to previous file version
I have created a linked Design System file and now one of the designers has overwritten some of my elements. I can go back in the version history and open a version before the mistake was made but I can't revert to that version. Because many files link to the source Design System file, I can't just make a new one and send it out — the orginal linked file needs to be maintained.

Can't send clients new link, they gonna whip my ass
I've just used this service and it worked great: https://xd2sketch.com/open-xd-file-old-corrupted
Why was this removed! Makes no sense +1
very annoying to find out that this feature has been removed. obviously it was there before!
I just found out this inability just after i messed up the master component... imagine the textfield intances throughout many files gonna be messed up.....
Quite surprised why this is a upvote request when it was available previously. This renders Adobe XD completely unusable for large scale teams trying to manage UI KIT.
It would be great if we could overwrite the current cloud document with a previously saved version, that way design system links would stay intact.
When we have several people using assets from XD documents and we make a mistake in the file which is shared, there is no way to revert to saved version of a cloud document, all the other designers consuming assets are stuck with the latest version of the file unless they want to link to a entirely new document and replace every asset on every art board with the correct version one at a time.
There's a new update that allows the user to select previous links, but it only works if you've manually created multiple links on a document that has a continuous save history.
It doesn't work if you:
- Save a local XD document to the Cloud
- Open a history version (focus of this request)
In either of these cases, it's often essential to maintain the URL as links are published to various stakeholders.
Possible Workaround for the author of this Request:
1. Delete every artboard in current (official) version.
2. Copy everything from the historical version
3. Paste into current version

Same problem. In addition you can't copy and paste all content from restored version to original version without breaking prototype interactions and repeat grid content (when grids use components).
Sometime we want to revert the design to an earlier version. But keep the published links, file name etc. Currently I can only open a revision and then save it as a new version with a new published link. In order to allow us to keep all history of changes, web comments etc. It would be good to have the feature to save a version that is in history as the latest version.

I don’t understand why this was removed from the product. Seems like the ability to roll back to a previous version is a key part of cloud versioning (especially with linked documents)

Same problem here! Coediting is breaking cloud files. :-(
adding a button that allow designers back to their previous Design of the same app .
