    Yes, it makes sense! Once we import SVG, we essentially treat it like any other object. It sounds like you want to ensure that your SVGs retain some “image” properties and be able to swap them the way you can already swap images. I’ll keep this one as open for now! Thanks for getting back to us. :)

    Hello Elaine, I also encountered the same problem: I created a „Master-button” that contains an SVG ICON and a text-label. I use the repeating grid to create a menu with several Buttons and can change all the Text Labels to individual menu points. I would expect that the Override also works with the SVG ICONS but it does not work. Dragging the SVG on top of the existing SVG creates a mask as „ImpendingDoon” described. I love working with overrides in Sketch. Is there a way to exchange one symbol with another symbol in XD in general? I think the way how Sketch handles the symbols really meets the needs of Interface designers. I can swop any SVG Icon with another SVG Icon at any time and even exchange the color if I use a color mask. Please have a look at this approach. It would improve XD a lot. As described here: https://medium.com/sketch-app-sources/icon-sets-with-color-override-in-sketch-f6c893278bd3
