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(??).

*dynamically repeatable as in new icons as applicable with the use of the repeat grid tool

1. Version of Adobe XD: 0.6.28.10
2: Steps to reproduce issues:
2.1: Create grouped objects with an SVG used instead of a raster image (PNG, JPEG, GIF, etc) to represent an illustration/image/icon
2.2. Create a repeat grid
2.3. Attempt to replace the SVG with another SVG, IMG, or a group of either or both.
3. Expected result:
Expected SVG to be replaced or be now repeatable
4. Actual result:
This does not work, noooooooooo!

When i try and drag a folder full of SVG onto a repeated grid it seems to only render the first image.
This is VERY important
Agree. It would also be nice if you could drag any symbol into a repeat grid and have it just fill the one slot where you place it. Your symbol could be JPG, SVG, vectors/text drawn in XD... whatever.

I just spent a couple hours aligning icons for review. This would of been so helpful!
Definitely agree - an .svg (and .eps for that matter!) should be treated in the same way as jpegs.

In addition to allowing external svg file support as this feature request relates to, I'd like to suggest to extend this to enable selecting multiple svg objects already imported into XD and be able to use them as such in the repeat grid. real example would be for a navigation menu where each item has a different svg icon.

Exact same problem! Thought I was doing something wrong, then realized it only works with raster images, which is weird. This is a brilliant function, should work with SVG too.

This would be a big improvement and incredibly useful... SVG's and EPS's into grids would be great. Even better if you can change them outside of XD and it updates on save.

Yep, just fell on that today, usually using jpg/png, I was a bit surprised when I saw what **did not** happen while dropping svgs.

This feels like a bug, honestly. Dragging multiple SVG icons into a repeat grid should behave just like other supported image formats.

Exact same problem, and same demand : being able to use SVG with repeat grid would be a big plus.
