Linked Assets problem
I'm trying to start building a style guide file (styleguide.xd) which my other screen design files (anyotherpages.xd) would linked back as a sticky sheet through linked assets.
the styleguide.xd file seems to be experiencing a problem. It seems like I had accidentally introduced excessive linked assets from a third file into it, and am unable to purge them from styleguide.xd even after I crossed the file out from the assets menu. The program makes me click on the blue update button and reintroduces them back into it again.
Worse still, after this happens, the styleguide.xd file is unable to save.
And then, all the other pages are unable to link to the styleguide.xd file properly. The most recent assets created in the styleguide.xd file has a red link icon next to it even after attempts to relink them. (Now I'm unable to create any more new assets either)
And this is a problem because if styleguide.xd is corrupted, there is no way for me to recreate a new uncorrupted file and relink allotherpages.xd files to a new file. Once unlinked from styleguide.xd, the linked assets lose their component properties.
That's annoying -- sorry for that. There should also be commands to "Delete" and "Make Local Component". I will file a bug if there is not already one.
For now, if you want to keep the Components as Local Components, then drag a copy to canvas, then "Unlink Component" then "Make Component" (both from context-menu).
Once you've converted all of the desired Components to Local, then to remove linked assets with broken links: pull down on "Search and filter assets" drop down, move mouse over "cloud document" entry at bottom, you'll see an "x" icon on the right -- click on it to remove the linked assets doc.
I've got a similar issue :
On a local doc, I've linked asset from a cloud document, named " icons ". This (cloud) library no longer exist but its assets still show off in the local doc, with the red mark, indicating broken links. In the assets dropdown, the " icons " name has been replaced by " cloud document " (screen shot 1) which doesn't exist. Further more, I can't convert broken linked assets to local assets for the right click menu only allow me to " highlight on canvas " or " Relink " ( screenshot 2).
Do you have any cloud to get rid of it ?
For info, i'm on MacOS 10.13, and XD 18.104.22.168
Thanks for your help

Try copying everything on canvas in styleguide.xd and pasting it into a new doc to save as much data as possible.
