No overlay position control

When I try to position an overlay I'm not able to dial in a spesific X/Y coordinate or nudge the overlay 1px at the time like I would with any other object. The position tools are all gone when I select the overlay element. This makes it very hard to position the overlay with the accuracy needed in cases where I need to be pixel perfect, and that's most of the times. For instance when the overlay is supposed to be exact on top of another, straight under a line etc etc. I'm constantly missing 1px when I'm forced to use the move tool and position the overlay manually. Have I missed something here? Any hidden secrets to this?

Hi Perrybrus,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Currently, we can position the overlay only by clicking, dragging, and dropping the green position knob (+). Having said that, we have received a feature request to add more control to position the overlay on our XD UserVoice page, please upvote this feature request to add voice to it: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/34610959-position-...

 

Regards

Rishabh
