Reorder Elements in Adobe XD Assets Panel

Reorder Elements in Adobe XD Assets Panel

One of the new features in August 2018 release of Adobe XD is the ability to reorder elements in the Assets panel. This new feature is coming immediately after the ability to label or rename assets from the Assets panel in July 2018 update.

This is one more improvement which will help us to stay organized and work faster. From now and on it is possible to arrange elements by importance, frequency of use or in any other meaningful or useful order.
