Identify unused colors and character styles in the assets panel

While designing and experimenting with graphics and typefaces the list of colours, symbols and character styles becomes really long. Since there's no way to sort these there are a lot of extra items in the assets panel. This creates confusion and the only way to find out is by individually checking if the asset has been used on an artboard. If there could be a way to select all unused assets and being able to delete them in one go would save a lot of time.

OLD:
The ability to view and delete all unused colours, symbols and character styles. Also, option of creating custom folders for symbols

Also, being able to create custom folders for symbols would be a great addition to the workflow.

    Yes, I completely agree. It is so convenient to select and delete all unused symbols in Adobe Animate. It is a big time-saver, too. It would be great to have this functionality in XD, as well. Thanks!

    It also would be great if the option to "Highlight on Canvas" were enabled when you select multiple symbols on the panel.

    Totally agree, it's a painstaking process to discover which symbols are not used in order to delete them, which you'll need to do to get your file size down for example
