Create and organize symbols/components into folders
Would love to organize symbols into folder for easy accessibility. I spend too much time looking through symbols into one library.

I think that this is a huge issue as to why we can't really use XD for large projects. My project has a large library of custom icons that should all be added as assets (which is something my team can't afford to do). There are around 260 colors in Google Material library and I have to scroll through them to get to text styles and components. We're seriously considering switching to competitors' products because design system feature is great but barely usable at this point and this suggestion hasn't been addressed in over a year.
I couldnt agree more. XD really need to make this happen. I know i can serch but, like in figma i would love to make it into groups by putting the components in an artboart with a group name and the library will inherit that
Big project, lots of components... Organized them into folders would be great
AGREE. I realy need this feature!!!

Essential feature. Currently missing.
this would be very helpful to organize large files...

Oh man I would really love grouping components by simply dragging and dropping components on top of each other. I've made a design so development can start right away. :-D
In larger projects where I have a large number of assets I have to scroll to find the assets because it's a long list.
I like the way sketch allows you to put assets in nested groups by using the "/". It's especially useful for design systems where you have a few variations of the same component.

Yes, this is very important, especially if you work on a big projects with a lot of screens and components. It's strange that this request doesn't have more votes!

A MUST HAVE without any doubt ! How can you do a DS without this??
Essential into a serious tool. ;)
Denis Teleshevskii commented
I have a lot of components in my DS and now its a mess :(
German Flores commented
Absolutely. I find myself just copying and pasting components from other artboards simply because it’s easier and faster than trying to find it in them in the library.

The ability to create folders, a title for the folder and place designated symbols & components in that folder.
Especially when we use Atomic design it will be A LOT easier to use and very organize as well, that way XD shows it today is not helpful at all.
Like BUTTON folder for all button symbols and then inside, as the sketch does.
This would definitely help to organize and build a library of assets and a good DSM.
I think it is today the only thing that holds people to move from Sketch to XD
Why oh WHY doesn't Xd have the ability to use folders to group together components? If they had a feature like Illustrator's folders that would make life sooooo much easier!
This would be amazing if it were added!
In addition to allowing folders within an asset type ( Colors, Character Styles, Components) I would suggest:
- UI be updated to allow for toggle view of assets when clicking on heading. (e.g. clicking "Colors" would expand/collapse the list of colors) see attachment: color-toggle.png
- Multi-select assets adds "...Add to Group" option. see attachment: add-to-group.png
- Sort assets by alpha
i want XD to recognize that i've made a group/folder of related components and offer them to me when i say-- right-click on said component.
This would be helpful for iterating with component options (does v1 or v2 work better here?), but most especially helpful for those nested components where you're likely to do frequent overrides, like status or badge icons.

As we add dozens of components to our style library, this would be immensely helpful to organize them like this. Please do add this feature!
