Scale/resize symbols individually
I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.
Please let us scale the symbols

Hi can you provide ETA? It will influence on our decision on Figma subscription renew.
table stakes. need this.
19/05/2019 is the day we will have this feature, let's hope :)
.... everything about it has been said... needed ASAP
This should be priority 1. Drop everything and make this happen please. It renders symbols essentially useless for the majority of use cases.
@julien Desmettre : sounds good, doesn't work...
Julien Desmettre commented
Solution : group your symbol, you'll be able to resize it as any other objects. In fact it's not even a feature, it's just a destabilizing behaviour. But that is understandable in a dev point of view, as a symbol has to be re-used as is in other templates of the app, like a component.

I am unable to scale images in XD bit disappointing
Really really need this feature - especially for creating reusable UI design systems
- one of the most missing features i've come across 👍
Any word on when we can expect this feature? Many of the other suggestions are nice to haves, but this is one of those make or break features that is missing. You can't coordinate an organization, from a design perspective, unless practitioners can resize and stay linked. As-is XD is still meant for one-off projects until we get this in.
+ 1 vote for scalable symbols too! otherwise Sketch.
it's curently implemented, i think

It's pretty laughable you can't scale symbols individually. Right into the bin with this application.

I really love XD, so I'm very surprised that it doesn't have scalable symbols. In my mind it's just a group, and I would think I'd be able to manipulate it in the same way. It's standard functionality for symbols in design software at this point.
I'm forced to break the symbol to resize, which defeats the point I think.
EDIT: I see work has started on this feature (thanks!) ... but almost a year ago ...

+1 you guys really should make this your top priority. Just read the comments - almost all designers are waiting for this feature!

+ 1 vote for scalable symbols too! You've done great in relative scaling of grouped items, doing same with symbols would be a life saver!

Keep up the great work guys, but please make this a priority. I'm finding that little, but very important things like this are being put on the backburner for new features. Get the basics right first then do all the cool new stuff.
This is a critical feature, a year ago we decided to move forward to xd in hope that this feature is going to release soon, every release we hoped that this could be one of the release features. Unfortunate, after a year, this is still labeled as 'feature started'.
For the users that need this feature, this is a life saver rather than something nice to have. I hope the development team can understand and escalate this feature and get it in the next release!
