Edit element in CC Library
When opening a CC-Library in XD, I can't edit the elements inside the library. In other CC-Tools like Photoshop there is a edit-command in the context menu of every item. That's missing in XD, or is there another workflow for editing library-elements?
a library which cannot be updated and hence updates the instances where the items are used is in one word: useless
According to the article below, linked assets will now be removed, leaving us only with libraries. How can this be possible? Libraries isn't up to snuff since you can't edit your elements. This is a disaster for our project.

I agree with this. It makes no sense that you can edit styles added to the document itself, but not to the CC library. Big oversight...please introduce ASAP.

I've been wanting to use shared CC libraries with my team on XD. But when testing it I found that there is no way to edit a style within the library. Isn't that the whole point (or at least a major part) of having a global style? If you decide to change the style, you only have to do it once to the main symbol and it can get applied to all your elements that have that style applied to it. Otherwise, what's the point of setting it all up?
I did find that you could open your library in another Adobe app and edit it there? But that is majorly inconvenient.
Also, I don't see any indicator, in XD, when you do change a library style from another app. For example, I've got 'Color #1' in the library that is a blue color. I've got this style applied to several items in my XD comp. I want all those elements to become green. So, I go into CC Libraries in Photoshop, Edit 'Color #1' to be green. When I go back to XD and it syncs, I see that 'Color #1' is now green in the CC Libraries panel. But, the items in my comp are not changed to be green. And I don't see any way to accept/apply the update of the style to my comp. I think it would be necessary to let people confirm that they want to style to update. But, I'm not seeing any of this.
