I'm particularely annoyed placing icons on my frames, since I really need to click or click&drag on some line in the icon, which is very very hard to find.

 

Ironically my icon has a touch target size of around 40px, but when designing, I need to click on that 2px of a line.

 

Are there some tricks that make handling icons easier?

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. The other possible options could be selecting the objects from the layers panel and you can also try expanding the layer panel. You can also refer to this help article for more information: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/layers.html

 

Let us know if this helps or if you need any further assistance.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Hi Rishabh.

 

Thanks for the tip. While this in deed helps with selecting the icon, it does not help with placing it. I can use arrow keys for small distances, but if I need to move it further away, I need to click&drag in the design.
