Customize Keyboard Shortcuts
I know that your design team probably had some rationale when defining shortcut keys for actions. For example, Z does not bring up the zoom tool, A is used for artboard creation instead of direct selection, etc. On the And that's fine - you can't design for the convenience of every user. But it'll be super duper awesome if you can let us define our own shortcuts... and sooner rather than later please.

Even in Photoshop, are hard-wired keyboard shortcuts that can not be used on the Czech keyboard.

+1. This would be a great feature. I understand why in different apps you'd want different keyboard shortcuts, but for us to have a choice would be great.

Consistency between Ai and XD shortcuts would be great. If it makes more sense to use R for rectangle these days, fine. Since a user can edit shortcuts in Ai, maybe adding an option in Ai to "match XD shortcuts" would help.
+1. Matching other adobe products or making shortcuts customizable would go a long way to transition designers from photoshop or illustrator who rely heavily on keyboard shortcuts.

I agree. The predefined Shortcuts for Arrange -> Bring back and forth simply does not work on a Swedish keyboard.
I'm pretty used to adobe apps shortcuts, and while I can get used to new ones, the first one I noticed missing is the Zoom (Z) shortcut
Going back and forth from Adobe apps, I think the shortcuts should be consistent, I mean, that's a good thing, isn't it ?
