Alt + Direction keys to adjust kerning and leading is very useful
We need the Select Same functionality for fills, strokes, and appearance like Illustrator. This is essential for a fast workflow.
Use Case 1: You have a highlight color across every page of the site. Many of these elements are not created with symbols or type styles. Select Same Color lets you change all of these elements at once, saving huge amounts of time and ensuring you don't miss anything.
Use Case 2: Select all your divider lines with Select Same Stroke Color and change the weight of the stroke.
Use Case 3: Select all image overlays with select same appearance, change blending mode, opacity, etc.
This functionality is incredibly useful, and one of the main reasons I prefer Illustrator over Sketch.
Another useful color management method comes from InDesign: deleting a swatch and replacing it with another swatch. This is a great feature and another good addition to XD, but we still would need Select Same functionality for all it's other great uses beyond color.
You can direct select elements by holding CMD when clicking on items that are part of groups. Marquee selecting anchor points is landing very soon, so that you could select parts of your rectangle. Do you expect a different behavior? Did I understand your request right? Thanks for your feedback.
Agreed. Both Sketch and Photoshop's direct selection is much more difficult and inaccurate than illustrator's. We need to be able to select individual points in 1 click, without having to select the shape and press enter or double clicking, and we also need the alt click with the direct selection tool for the option to select the whole shape. Also, we need to be able to grab the edge of a shape and resize. Oh and select a path section (between anchor points) and delete, no scissors tool like sketch.
