Yep. I also work at a company that prohibits saving anything with sensitive proprietary material on non-local servers. After that XD update, I inadvertently saved several documents to the cloud (in violation of that policy) over the course of a week, and had no idea I had been doing so. I feel lucky that I even noticed it after a week, and *only* had to go back and re-save a half dozen or so documents locally and delete them from the cloud, and that it didn't result in more significant problems (up to and including losing my job).
Even now that I know, I've still tripped up a few times because the muscle memory to auto-save or Save As... is taking time to unlearn, and have still accidentally saved to the cloud multiple times. And of course not having the option to open local files from XD's launch screen is unnecessarily cumbersome.
I get that there are nice features and functionality that are only available with the cloud, but some companies simply aren't going to entrust their data to your servers. It's pretty user-hostile to make designers at those companies have to jump through hoops to actively avoid cloud saves because of how aggressively you're pushing it.
