Scale/resize symbols individually
I love the addition of symbols to XD, only let down (beside the ability to re-organise them which is already posted as an idea) is that I have to create a new symbol for every required size.
Please let us scale the symbols
We’re excited to announce that with our May release, we have introduced Components (previously known as symbols). Components are design elements with unmatched flexibility that help you create and maintain repeated elements while varying the instances for different contexts and layouts.
You can create a master component to define a reusable element, such as a button, and you can change any of its properties to customize instances of that element (Size & Layout, Style and Appearance, and Structural overrides). Changes you make to an individual instance are specific to that element, but changes you make to the master propagates to all the instances where the property hasn’t been customized.
Components now could also be responsively resized with the same powerful capabilities of responsive resize baked in.
Finally, you could link components across documents to maintain a single source of your components using the Link Assets feature or simply through copy/pasting components across documents.
To learn more, please check:
Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

A word of caution. make sure if you make a logo a component to NOT have the responsive resize property enabled or you won't be able to scale it right.

Is this feature released in V19. I already updated my Adobe XD version to latest V19 but do not find any option to scale the components (symbols)

A lot of people asked for this, a lot of people complained about this.
It's finally done.
I would like to thank the Adobe XD team for this feature.
I got so excited that I am staying 4 extra hours at work to refactor my symbols.
DELETING never felt so good.
Finally! This is fixed.

If XD supported scaling/resizing symbols individually I'd be pushing for my company to switch from sketch. I rely on this feature so heavily with sketch.
I am surprised it is still not there. Most important feature. Having lot of trouble when I am designing large applications.

I'm aghast this isn't a basic feature. Between this and drag directions, I'd have built it in something other than XD. I've been trying to convince my agency to fully switch over, but I really can't.

Hi can you provide ETA? It will influence on our decision on Figma subscription renew.
table stakes. need this.
19/05/2019 is the day we will have this feature, let's hope :)
.... everything about it has been said... needed ASAP
This should be priority 1. Drop everything and make this happen please. It renders symbols essentially useless for the majority of use cases.
@julien Desmettre : sounds good, doesn't work...
Julien Desmettre commented
Solution : group your symbol, you'll be able to resize it as any other objects. In fact it's not even a feature, it's just a destabilizing behaviour. But that is understandable in a dev point of view, as a symbol has to be re-used as is in other templates of the app, like a component.

I am unable to scale images in XD bit disappointing
Really really need this feature - especially for creating reusable UI design systems
- one of the most missing features i've come across 👍
Any word on when we can expect this feature? Many of the other suggestions are nice to haves, but this is one of those make or break features that is missing. You can't coordinate an organization, from a design perspective, unless practitioners can resize and stay linked. As-is XD is still meant for one-off projects until we get this in.
+ 1 vote for scalable symbols too! otherwise Sketch.
it's curently implemented, i think
