Rearrange Component States in Property Inspector
I'd love to be able to rearrange the component state order in the property inspector (the panel on the right in Design mode & Prototype mode). I would also love to be able to resize the section for component states. Currently it maxes out at 4 before you need to scroll.
This should be such an easy update. How many more votes till Adobe has it on its radar?

Please add this
It's so basic.. can we please have a functionality to reorder the states in components please... Basic ux..
Not many votes here, but ability to rearrange component states would be a huge productivity enhancement, as well as the ability to make the scroll window larger.
I regret leaving Sketch more every day.

PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!! what a ridiculously simple omission. XD is LITERALLY a UX tool yet it suffers from basic UX failings. You couldn't make it up.

Please Adobe, make it happen 🙏

It's ridiculous that we still haven't have this feature yet.
Like Adobe conceived a STATIC list of "Component States" that it wouldn't ever needed to be edited out or reordered.
Like this is plain common sense UX for creating a list. It's so clear that despite answering the demand for user experience design and the pain of pioneer UX designers back then using Photoshop to UI design, it's still clear they still have adapted the same Photoshop UI mindset with this app as well.
Clunky, some obvious things doesn't make any sense and it takes years to address usability issues, sometimes abandoned at all.

Anon. I wish I could like your comment
I have been using XD a lot lately, and running into workflows that cause major user pain - this being one of them. It's really disheartening to see that some of these feature requests are years-old. I am more and more of the opinion that making products more usable for subscribers is not a priority for Adobe. Being able to un-dock or expand the states window is such a low-hanging piece of usability fruit as to be render it laughable that they haven't fixed it. The list of these problems grows longer and longer as I use XD, and makes me regard XD more as an alpha version of software that's actually years away from being ready for release.
We need this desperately - anyone working on a big project knows the pain of the current states list.
What we really need is consistency between Illustrator and XD. If you can rearrange layers etc in one piece of Adobe software, then it follows that we need the same functionality with any custom list.
On top of that, the ability to just extend the size of the list (using the toolbar dividers, just like in any other Adobe software) would be fantastic. I've got a list with about 20 states in there, but the list is tiny and the scroll-bar just keeps getting harder to use.

Need this desperately!
This feature is really necessary. The needs arise over time, and each state we add causes the list to become complex. Kindly get the drag & drop feature to rearrange meaningfully.
Ola Karlsson commented
Yes please on both those things, my list of states in some components are a mess because I after a while realised I wanted another state related to an existing one but there is no way of putting them by each other.
I don't understand why this isn't a thing.
ANY RESPONSE FROM ADOBE???

This is much needed, and currently having to constantly scroll in the little states scroll area costs a lot of time and is not an ideal user experience. As someone else commented if there is a clean, simple way to provide a preview thumbnail for each state, that would be really helpful.
Thank you! Keep up the great work, XD team!
James Symons commented
Yes please, massively helpful... and also maybe preview of component when hover/on side ;)

This is important to have
