    This continues to be a major issue. I've looked at plugins like Data Populator, but apparently they too are unable to update text inside components due to API limitations of Adobe XD.

    An example use case: I have a component that is effectively a "redacted text" element consisting of text and an optionally-visible opaque rectangle covering the text. This is useful and necessary so that I can go into my component, make the rectangle visible, and immediately redact all text inside my Adobe XD mockups. However, in order to be able to use this component in a Repeat Grid and be able to drag in a list of values, I have to copy-paste the actual text element outside of the component. This is especially an issue if, for example, the text size needs to be updated; rather than merely updating the component and having the update cascade, I now have to manually update every instance that occurs within a Repeat Grid.

    What is a little ironic is that the Adobe XD ProTips homepage prominently features a video right now on "Override Your Repeat Grids with Components"... except that in the video they don't actually turn their repeated UI into a component. https://youtu.be/EYImhBWJBdg

    I guess they are solving the reverse-problem of "how to override elements within a repeat grid".

    This is definitely needed and almost feels like a bug. Like Axel explained below, I'll create a component like a card or table row and then use repeat-grid to generate a page of cards or table, but dragging-in a text file with my desired values only updates the first instance since the text object is contained within a component. I assume the same behavior occurs when dragging in image files. I need to be able to preserve the component to maintain consistency so un-grouping it within repeat-grids is not really an option.

    This other feature request also highlights an issue with the current "Highlight on canvas" functionality where components on hidden layers are being ignored. Especially when updating all instances of a deprecated component, I need the ability to be able to see every instance of that component currently in my project regardless of whether it's currently visible.

    I also would very much appreciated PDFs exported with transparency. I would expect the same behavior for PDF exports as PNG exports, where if you disable the artboard's fill color then it is transparent. Currently exporting a PDF with no artboard fill defaults to a white background.
