Offer "Select on Canvas" and not just "Highlight on Canvas"
A busy design session may result in "orphan" Character Styles which are not named or do not conform with the standards. For example, I want all body copy to be 14pt but a few instances were wrongly created at 13pt. Currently, I click one instance of the 13pt, then "Add Character Style to Assets". I can then use the "Highlight on Canvas" feature to SHOW ever instance. But I cannot apply the 14pt style to them because they are not SELECTED. If "Select on Canvas" were an option, I could apply the correct 14pt style to all of the 13pt instances with a single click.
The many comments on Xd websites make it clear that users strongly dislike the tedious method of 1. Highlighting instances, 2. Visually scouring every dartboard for the highlights, 3. Hand selecting each instance, 4. Styling those characters, 5. Repeating the whole process again for the next section of the Xd canvas.
I'm not a programmer. But common sense suggests that if Xd can locate all of those instances to highlight them, then surely those instances can be selected.
Please. Do this. Right away.

I made many pages and forgot to turn on "Fixed position when scrolling". I literally have to go through every page or manually select the element just to tick the checkbox.
If only there were ways that you could select all instances just by right-clicking "Master" or an "Instance" and clicking "Highlight all instances".
It would also be a big help so we could locate which pages did we use the instances.
