Troubleshooting & help
Yes! Anyone can get XD for free as part of the Starter plan that includes one active shared link and one active shared document with up to two co-editors.
For more details, see Compare plans.
The Starter plan is also available to anyone with an Adobe ID, Enterprise ID, or Federated ID. If you are a Creative Cloud for teams or Creative Cloud for enterprise member and you don't have access to the Creative Cloud desktop app, contact your IT Administrator to obtain access to XD through the Creative Cloud Packager.
For solutions to a "failed to install" error, see Error: "Failed to install" Creative Cloud desktop app. To resolve other download, installation, and update issues, see this download and install troubleshooting guide.
You can visit this page to learn about upgrading from the Starter plan to a paid plan.
To upgrade your plan from within XD, click Help > Upgrade XD. This will open you a page where you can find the plan that is right for you.
Update XD from the Creative Cloud desktop app or within XD, click Help > Updates. When you update, your trial automatically converts to the free Starter plan for Adobe XD, so you'll continue to have access to XD past the duration of your trial.
If you published one or more prototype or design spec links during your trial, after you update XD, you still have access to these shared links. However you will have to manage your links or upgrade your plan to publish new links.
If you cancel your membership, you still have access to Creative Cloud member free benefits, any files you saved to your device, and your shared links.
You will automatically move to the Starter plan which includes Adobe XD. However, you will lose the ability to create an unlimited number of prototype and design spec links. You won't have access to your other apps or most services, and your cloud storage will be reduced to 2 GB.
You can save your XD designs as cloud documents to ensure that they are up-to-date and accessible from any online device. You can then share them with other Creative Cloud users to collaborate. Changes to Cloud documents can also be made when you are offline, and they are automatically saved to the cloud when you connect back online.
When you work on cloud documents, your work is kept in sync with the Creative Cloud sync process. You may encounter issues with cloud documents if there is an issue with Creative Cloud sync or if Creative Cloud sync needs an update. For more information, see Fix issues with Adobe XD cloud documents.
