Multi select in Searched / Filtered Layer List
It is currently not possible to Shift-Select multiple items once the layer list is filtered or searched.
It would be very helpful to have this feature as only relevant items are left and you probably want to select them all
Another basic feature missing

Please fix it.
Shift+ or Cmd+Click-ing to select 100+ layers across multiple artboards is incredibly frustrating and time consuming. How is it still not a feature?
This is clearly a bug with the filter behavior.
Because of multiple other issues with XD, I have to ungroup repeat grids to create variations.
I inevitably make adjustments to what would have been grid items.
The only efficient way to do this (short of fixing the repeat grid feature) is to filter my layer panel and multi-select the items to move.
Of course, XD blocks me there too.
I swear Adobe is trying to get me to convert all their users to Sketch.
Just fix it. Seriously, how hard can this be?
It looks like it's not going to be a feature, but now it's a bug. It's needless to say an option.
Imagine if you're going to empty a trash can from a waste thing by thing
My use case: I use semi-transparent rectangles as guides to subdivide artboard areas in order for developers to easily implement each different segment. While designing I need to hide these guides from time to time to preview the final design. Having the ability to filter layers by name and multi-select them at once would really be convenient to hide/unhide them.

Please fix it. Also selecting both Artboards and components/layers on the pasteboard must be possible.
it's not working now.
It would be useful to enable selection of multiple elements resulting from a search on layers view to allow property change for all that elements at once.

I am trying to search a layer and i like to delete all the layers in one shot. But i can able to select and delete one later at one time.
I am using a componunt layer in all the artboard (120), By mistake i update a icon in the Default layer, This tries to updated all the availabe layers, This makes the XD app hang due to i used the same componunt around many areas (500+). XD app got hanged and crashed, Now icon is added all the 500+ layers, If i remove icon form the default layer, buy its not reflecting to the remaining artbord/layers, I am forced to delete all the extra icon added in the 500+ layers.
If layer panel has an option to multiselect delete option, My time will save around 20m today.
Like photoshop, we need to select single/multiple later and delete feture is required. Shift+click will select the list of layer for deleting.
I like one feture is, If search is very much useful in the layer pallel, That only helps me to findout how many same icon is added in how many artbnoard & how many times in each artboard.
Waiting for the next update to resolve this issue.
