We’ve started working on multiple fills and borders, with plans to extend to this multiple shadows in the future.

Enable users the ability to add more than one drop shadow to a shape.
This would be an extremely useful feature because it would prevent me from having to create two shapes, line them up, and adjust the shadow settings to simulate a double drop shadow. This is also important because it would make for cleaner more organized and less confusing project files.
Ex drop shadow grey on bottom of the shape, drop shadow white on top of shape.

We want to create Neumorphism in Xd, so we need to create multiple shadows !

Requires layer shadow on next version. I think it will be very useful.
Great news this feature is in the works. I got all excited to go all in from Sketch but ran into this wall almost immediately. I'll have to hold off until this feature is introduced.
Currently i'm using this tool (https://brumm.af/shadows) to demo / apply multiple layers in shadowing. You can recreate these CSS settings in XD by stacking multiple layers of box-shadows. Tip, add the code in the hand-off you'll receive in this tool and you're golden.

В данном случае "уже прошло 3 года", но для Adobe это видно не срок. С каждым новым обновлением той же Figma Adobe XD всё больше выглядит некой породией на серьезный инструмент.
This would be a huge help having this feature. For dev, handoffs would eliminate confusion. I have to send a specific CSS spec and tell them not to follow CSS styles for particular items.

I was all-in on using XD for all my designs until I hit a wall by not being able to create multiple shadows on a single object. CSS can - why can't XD?

Over 3 years has passed. What happened?
Steve Anthony commented
This is great news!
Jonas Hartmann commented
Would love that, any news?
For me, this is the biggest gap in XD.

Feature needed desperately

i'm a huge fan of multiple fills/borders/shadows/etc. and i'm missing this feature desperately .

I am very tried to add multiple type of border color and deference size of border in deference side this is one of huge concept on sketch. pl add this feature in very fast dnt delay.
Please add this, it's important for making Android prototypes. I installed virtual machine with MacOS and Sketch on it, to made multiple shadow for my dear 24dp rectangle!
Honestly, how has this not been deployed yet? This is THE primary reason I refuse to work with XD. There aren't enough other compelling features which motivate users to develop workarounds to compensate for its absence. What's even more peculiar is that Illustrator and Photoshop have had this for years, long before Sketch – it should be present if for no other reason to be consistent with how vectors are handled by the company's other major products. If Adobe is going to start pressuring third party agencies to use the application when working on digital solutions for the company, it needs to make the XD at least equal to, if not better than, competing products.
This is a pretty critical feature that's missing. We design in a mapping environment everyday, our paths / map features almost all include multiple fills / borders stacked. Recreating that in XD currently means stacking multiple shapes, which doubles the work for manipulation and limits the flexibility of the tool. Another baseline feature that should be in there.
I'm still embarrassed when advocating for XD because of this. I cant accurately design material components because of this oversight.

This is extremely important (on the shadow front) when designing in the style of the Google Material Design styles (explained here - https://medium.com/@Florian/freebie-google-material-design-shadow-helper-2a0501295a2d)... You can see that there are layered shadows in their components out of the box.
