Save symbols to be used across multiple projects
Ability to save symbols so that they could be used on any project would be very useful. As of now, symbols added can only be used on that particular project only.

Yes, a shared 'assets' file that can be linked to multiple XD projects.
This would indeed be very useful !

Also it's very bad when you lose the symbols by copying them to another file. So frustrating!
Shared assets is a must for larger projects or when multiple people cooperate together. It's also a huge productivity hack.

At the very least, supporting drag-and-drop of symbols between two instances of XD would be INCREDIBLY useful. Since it's possible to select multiple symbols at once, it would be a simple matter to click the first symbol, shift-click the last, drag them all across to your other XD window, done. As it is, if we want to use, say, the Google Material Design stickers, I pretty much have to do all my work in the actual MD sticker XD file, then remember to "save as" something else. In addition that file will then also include all of the MD artboards unless I manually delete all of them. It just seems like a rather poorly thought-out implementation.

This and more should be covered by CC Libraries, which they said they started working on:
I think there are 2 requests for this. The other being 'Global symbol Library'
