Asset Panel UX Bug
UX Bug Asset Panel
Asset panel not adapted for real usage of the application. It just became a pain in the ass
let me remind you waht is a real project in the real life:
- more than 20 colors for the color palet
- more than 20 text style
- more than hundreads of symbols (icons + differents components)
Combining the 3 entities create confusion clutter and arm the usage of each one of the different topic.
The fact that now I don't see my symbols when opening the menu... that is the main purpose of this panel.
In addition to that it is not possible to organise the panel so everything is a mess.
Color pallet messy with no organization with color, sam with the text style and not possible to give a name (H1-H2 etc..)
For symbols the big key feature was to be able to find easily and quickly a symbol to be able to reuse it and now it is even harder to use.
WARNING FOR YOU UX GUYS LIKE ME, don't forget your audience and your users. It should give you the direction of the tool!
your quick & dirty solution just looks like technical constraints or "we don't know where to put it.. so we put it where we have some space" it is not acceptable from a good product such as XD.
Thanks guys! Keep on the good work!

Thanks for your feedback! Please do remember that we’re working on features iteratively, and our first cut is to provide the feature functionality. We are definitely working on organization features for the asset panel in the future.
I can see at least three different suggestions that you could file as feature requests for the community to upvote (and for us to give you updates on):
- Organization of symbols
- Reordering of the assets panel so that symbols are on top
- Naming of text styles
It would really help us to be able to aggregate specific feature requests (each of which takes time to execute well!) if you file them separately, so I’m marking this bug as Action Required.
Thanks a ton again for taking the time to write this up. We definitely appreciate your input and hear your frustration. Hopefully, every iteration improves your experience.
