    This has been an issue for far too long for Adobe not to address it properly. The addition of a non-standard, four-key option to save files locally is ridiculous, meaning it is absolutely worthy of ridicule, especially because it's not the default. For a company as old as Adobe, relatively speaking, this is an obvious mistake to a decades-long, industry-wide common save function and should be corrected immediately.

    A few moments ago I got off a chat with an Adobe representative after trying to access Preferences of some sort to turn off cloud-based saves entirely for new files since it's so invasive. Of course there are no Preferences at all in XD, so my efforts were wasted. But I did get one response that shows how little Adobe thinks of our complaints about their "feature." From the chat transcript, the associate wrote: "Yes that is possible if you work without Internet connection however when you connect back to the Internet it will ask you to update the changes". You read that right: Adobe's rep says the single way to turn off their cloud-based auto save for new files feature is to... disconnect from the Internet.

    SMH in frustration.
