Repeat Grid: different icons / SVG images in each grid cell
Apparently only JPG/PNG is supported when performing drag & drop of a set of images.
My assets are often SVG so supporting that format there would spare me from having to generate temporary PNGs or place manually.
It seems currently it adds all SVGs on all cells when dropping and creates a mask of all the files combined(??).
Any news to this?

+1 - Please add the ability to do this.

hehehe... just found this limitation. Trying to build a Design System with more than 70 SVG custom icons and badges. Adding them one by one will be a pain.

🙏🏻Please add this! It will improve so much the speed in our work environment.

Until this is addressed it looks like you have to batch convert svg to png or jpg and then drop them into the repeat grid.
I just ran into this same issue. It would be convenient if this could be addressed for repeat grids rather than the same vector images repeating for each repeated element.

I need asap! please Adobe, include it
Definitely a must!
Hell yeah. Need that asap! Please Adobe, include it :)
I also just ran into this issue.
Oh my God! I just ran into this issue!!!! C'mon man!!

In many cases we can't use vector arts. XD does not allow replacing a vector image by another. For example, inside a repeated grid, using different vector arts is a nightmare!
In such cases we need to create a raster version of it with appropriate color / gradient overlay so that we can easily replace them.
Now, when the color palette changes, we need to regenerate the raster images with the updated colors using a different application like Photoshop. This is really awful, and there is no use of the global color palette here.
A real-life example of this could be using different icons inside a repeated grid.
Please add color and gradient overlay. It's a deadly needed feature!

Is there any movement on this? It's been over a year....

please consider this feature on your roadmap for future improvements
And congrats for the excellent work you have been doing.
Just to add to this; I would also really appreciate this feature, but not just for SVGs but for any Symbols I have defined. If I define a load of icons as symbols I would like to be able to drag those symbols onto the repeat grid.
Keep up the good work!
We all need this feature badly! I just stepped upon this problem and it was such a pain.

SVGs have a group (single object) with a bunch of paths under the group. So replacing an "image" doesn't really work. Everywhere else I use high quality SVG files, but now I have to export specific images in a specific format. Kinda a pain.
