Organize assets panel objects (symbols/components/colors/character styles) into folders
Would love to organize symbols into folder for easy accessibility. I spend too much time looking through symbols into one library.
I couldnt agree more. XD really need to make this happen. I know i can serch but, like in figma i would love to make it into groups by putting the components in an artboart with a group name and the library will inherit that
Big project, lots of components... Organized them into folders would be great
I think he refers to the assets panel.
I'm also upvoting this. Just like it is in AI Library, where you can create groups of colors.
The problem with using the cc library in XD is that you cannot edit colors inside XD. or update all elements that are using the same library color
Therefore, using the XD color assets is just great, but when having like 100+ colors, it would be nice to be able to group them
AGREE. I realy need this feature!!!

Essential feature. Currently missing.
this would be very helpful to organize large files...

Oh man I would really love grouping components by simply dragging and dropping components on top of each other. I've made a design so development can start right away. :-D
All of my icons and generic components should be organized in the library - search, drag, and drop.
search field for library, one that you can actually search in, is a must.
* And please make the thumbnails smaller

We have our colors from different contexts defined, ex selection colors, background colors etc. Now when we have added them in the document, they come randomly and not organized. This makes the color usage vulnerable to mistakes & confusion. Please give us an option to separate out chosen DLS colors. Thank you :)
In larger projects where I have a large number of assets I have to scroll to find the assets because it's a long list.
I like the way sketch allows you to put assets in nested groups by using the "/". It's especially useful for design systems where you have a few variations of the same component.

Yes, this is very important, especially if you work on a big projects with a lot of screens and components. It's strange that this request doesn't have more votes!
Could you add feature that would let you group colors?

A MUST HAVE without any doubt ! How can you do a DS without this??
Essential into a serious tool. ;)
Denis Teleshevskii commented
I have a lot of components in my DS and now its a mess :(
German Flores commented
Absolutely. I find myself just copying and pasting components from other artboards simply because it’s easier and faster than trying to find it in them in the library.

The ability to create folders, a title for the folder and place designated symbols & components in that folder.
Especially when we use Atomic design it will be A LOT easier to use and very organize as well, that way XD shows it today is not helpful at all.
Like BUTTON folder for all button symbols and then inside, as the sketch does.
This would definitely help to organize and build a library of assets and a good DSM.
I think it is today the only thing that holds people to move from Sketch to XD

Yes, the ability to group colors/swatches, so its easy to change the color of an asset. Lets say you have different shades of the same color. I did a quick mockup. This way your assets panel don't get overloaded with colors either.
Why oh WHY doesn't Xd have the ability to use folders to group together components? If they had a feature like Illustrator's folders that would make life sooooo much easier!
