Switch keyboard shortcuts for Save As and Save As Local
this is bad UX!
the standard keyboard shortcuts, which you also know from other adobe products, should save the file locally and not to the cloud.
the extended keyboard shortcut can save the file in the cloud.
This is a classic example of how business decisions overturns best design practices resulting in horrible user experience.
I get that Adobe's business priority now is to push people to use Adobe cloud. But shouldn't you invest more in making the cloud service better, than sabotaging existing products forcing people to change their behavior?
Giving the "Save As to cloud" the default classic "Shift+Command+S" shortcut, then give the "Save as local" an impossible-to-use shortcut is such a hideous practice that it represents a new low for this beloved company.
Very sad day in the history of creativity industry indeed. I'll send this case to my peers at Harvard Business School and hopefully they'll use it in their future studies.

Please can we have Apple shift S - save to make local vs cloud.
All shortcuts across all your software should be the same or similar action.
Cloud assumes everyone has fast uploads - I'm sure a lot of people do have fast uploads - and so do I - but its never quicker than saving local.
Cloud is never better - cloud is always useful at the end of the day once work has been finished. When I'm working on a file - it's extremely unlikely someone will also want to work on that file at the same time.
Stop making cloud a priority - I don't believe it is. HOWEVER a better way to sync to cloud at the end of the day would be better.
XD 29 can save to local documents directly using the uncomfortable and NOT user-friendly key command Shift+blah-blah (Mac) or Shift+Alt+Ctrl+S (Win) - basically saying "we (adobe) made something new and you (the users) WILL USE IT!!!"
Why not make the uncomfortable and not-user-friendly key commands you introduced in XD29, save to the cloud or what-not - and leave the regular way people used to work.
Why force us to change the way we used to work?
Would you consider allow us to make our own shortcuts - that could be a nice compromise.

The introduction of two 'Save As' options is annoying at best. Your location of choice (Local or Cloud) should be an option you choose in Preferences, not a command in the menu. To have assigned shift+command+save to saving to the Cloud is not conducive with the general saving practices in other software, including all other Adobe products. Because we are conditioned to use this key configuration for other software, XD should switch their saving options for Local and Cloud around so that they are aligned with all other software commands. It's causing myself and my team no end of hassle and we can't be the only ones that are suffering and wasting time because of this decision you've made.
I agree, we have spent our careers with Command S to save a file. I find it so dangerous to change that now. My work has its own server we have to save to so stop trying to veer users of XD to the adobe Cloud.
I agree. My company requires me to save all my files locally - we don't use the cloud, so it's frustrating that the automatic save goes to the cloud - I've saved multiple documents with my normal shortcut keys only to discover later that those documents aren't on my company's server. The extended shortcut is not a natural go-to, and this auto-saving to the cloud drastically slows me down. Please undo or give me the option to set a preference.
