Fix Position When Scrolling for Individual Objects Inside of Group
I love the Fix Position When Scrolling option, but it only works for the outermost group/object in that artboard. This is very annoying, as I like to use nested groups a lot, and I'd like to fix the position of something within a subgroup, but the outside items should not be fixed. This would particularly help me because I like to have 3 main groups: header, content, and footer, and I can't organize my objects in this manner if I need to fix the scroll.
If this helps the developers (because I'm one), I'd compare this to properties in HTML. Currently, the property is set for a div containing multiple objects, but I'd like it to be for each item in the div.
September 2021 still not fixed. New to XD. Spent half an hour trying to figuring out why it wasnt showing like in the instructions....
Still time to switch to Figma I suppose

Please fix this
I just spent an hour searching for why I can't fix the scroll for a nested component. Happened to come across this post, and realized it's exactly what I needed. Really frustrated me that I can't fix the position just because it's nested.
Then, I realized that I made this post a year or two ago. Incredible. How has this original post not even been acknowledged by admins?

Yes, we do need that, hope they will bring that in of the future updates
This! I would love to have this feature update to support nested objects. Currently, it becomes really difficult to keep artboards organized - and effectively utilize the Auto Animate transition - when having to move nested content out its parent folder, just to fix its position.
