Hi There,

Thanks for reaching out and using Adobe XD. Please find the below steps for delete more than one components at the same time.

1. Press and hold shift button.

2. Select multiple components one by one by using your mouse.

3. Right click on them and click on delete option. 

Please find the attached recording also.

 

Please let us know if you need more assistance on this. We'd be happy to help

 

Regards,

Deepika

Not all Linked Assets can be Deleted directly from Assets Panel. Linked Assets created from a Published CCLib or copy/paste across documents (Components only) can be Deleted, but Linked Assets from Linked Cloud Documents cannot be Deleted.

 

Multiple Linked Assets can only be Deleted if each individual Linked Asset can be Deleted.

 

HTH,

Randy

Thank you for your help.
got it 🙂
Why can some Linked Assets be deleted, and others not? 
If an individual Linked Asset can not be Deleted, what can I do to make it possible to be deleted?

 

Thanks

The only way to Delete a Linked Asset from a Linked Cloud Document, is to right-click > Edit Main in Source Document and then Delete the Local Asset from the Source Document.

 

WARNING: if this Source Document is Shared with others, then some other Document may be using this Asset. If so, this will cause other Documents to see a Broken Link!

 

HTH,

Randy
