Show Selected Symbol / Component Name in Properties Panel
When a symbol is selected on the artboard, show (in the properties panel):
- the instance name
- the name of the symbol it's an instance of
I find myself doing A LOT of right clicking and then "Reveal Symbols in Assets" to figure out what symbols I'm actually using.
(Symbol use, management, overrides, and shared libraries are some of the biggest challenges we have in using Adobe XD instead of Sketch.)

I too spend a lot of time figuring out which symbol I'm using.
This is exacerbated by the component bugs that cause them to update unreliably. Given Adobe's failure to address those long-standing issues, I have twice as many components as I need because only brand-new components reliably carry states from the source doc to the targets.
Just to add to this – when you select "Reveal components in assets", it's not very helpful since it doesn't filter the assets to only the selected component(s). Yes, they're highlighted in a blue outline, but if you have hundreds of components, it's not easy to find the component you're looking for.
A simple addition in the inspector panel would make this much, much easier.
A simple tweak to show the name of the component in the property panel.
When you have lots of components some can look visually similar.
Therefore, to be able to check the component without having to right-click and reveal the component in assets would improve the workflow.
