Howdy folks,

I'm wondering if it is possible to import an image by dragging it to an image box in XD and then change the background color of the box. So far, it appears that the fill of the box is actually the image. When I turn the fill off, the image disappear. When I change the color of the fill to anything but white, the image also disappears. Is there an easy way to have a transparent png and change the background color? Thank you

Images dropped into a shape are considered image fills, which is why you can't have an image and a fill color. You'll have to use another box for the fill color.
