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.
This is something we are planning to do! Stay tuned for more details.
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. ;)

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!
This would be amazing if it were added!
In addition to allowing folders within an asset type ( Colors, Character Styles, Components) I would suggest:
- UI be updated to allow for toggle view of assets when clicking on heading. (e.g. clicking "Colors" would expand/collapse the list of colors) see attachment: color-toggle.png
- Multi-select assets adds "...Add to Group" option. see attachment: add-to-group.png
- Sort assets by alpha
i want XD to recognize that i've made a group/folder of related components and offer them to me when i say-- right-click on said component.
This would be helpful for iterating with component options (does v1 or v2 work better here?), but most especially helpful for those nested components where you're likely to do frequent overrides, like status or badge icons.

As we add dozens of components to our style library, this would be immensely helpful to organize them like this. Please do add this feature!

This would definitely be a fantastic feature, especially if you're working on a very large corporate site like I am and I need to scroll through almost a hundred different graphics in the components panel. Grouping them into categories and per page would definitely clean up the panel. I use the search field, however it is impossible for any designer to remember each label and keyword. Please consider implementing this feature!
