Shortcut to apply a color from the asset panel to a border
It would be nice if I could hold the alt / option key and click on a colour in the asset panel, to apply it to the border of a selected shape, instead of having to right-click and then select "Apply to border"
If you are trying workaround with eyedropper tool be aware of this bug!
If i use eye dropper tool to select asset color, wrong color is picked - it has different HEX number!
4 years and still not able to this? Wow...

I work in XD all day long and this is the single most irritating thing about this program. OK calm down Jenzie boy, 5..4..3...2...1 ok calm, PLEASE Adobe it's perplexing to see you who are the gods of grahics programs NOT have a quick option to set border color.. i mean come oooon it's got to be top 10 on the features list, right click is just sad.

Come on XD team, I know there are just a few votes on this request but I am sure a whole lot of people would appreciate the alt/option shortcut. It is only a minor annoyance having to use the context menu but it occurs so many times! I guess this will not consume days of hard work either.
I can dig this.
In addition. If the element you need to apply the colour to is JUST a line, allow us to simply click the colour in the asset panel...

DEFINITELY - should be just option clicking it.

The Alt/Option key solution would be so simple and fast – please make it happen!
I just wanted to create a request for this. This is really easy to do. How is this still not build into XD.
Adobe asked me to mock up a request I had a while back. They say they are working on it but who knows. This was almost a year ago...

I know you can now do this by right clicking a swatch and selecting "Apply as Border". Is there an even quicker shortcut?
Andrew K commented
How is this not a thing yet?
Steven Jenner commented
I just came on to ask for this exact idea.
+1 for this! A default action to apply as fill on click of swatch, but maybe an icon over on the right side to apply as border instead of fill. Having to right click & select from menu is an extra step that could have a quick workaround for usability.
Chuck Howard commented
it would be very nice if one could click the "fill" or "stroke" swatch in the appearance panel and simply be able to select colors from your assets there
Sherif Assaf, yes it's work.
But i think a icon is more practical and one click less :D
You could apply stroke to your object by right-clicking on the color on the assets panel and select "Apply as Border"
Let me know if that solves your problem.

Simple and fast way to color stroke with assets.
Icon left, fill color and right, stroke color ;D
Simple way to apply stroke color with assets:
• Select an object
• Click on a swatch from the assets panel to fill the shape (current feature)
• "Option" click on swatch from assets panel to fill the stroke (suggested feature)
Please please please address this problem. You already hid the eye dropper (BIG MISTAKE) so now its 4 clicks to fill stroke instead of 3. Above is a very simple solution that seems like it will work.
Current way of filling stroke.
click 1. Select object
click 2. and 3. Select the eye dropper (it got put in a sub menu)
click 4. select the color from the assets panel.
There is no need to explain it more :)
