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.

        It is possible to share assets among XD files, but since we do not correspond within the same file for updating that asset (symbols of components etc.!), We need a copy every time.

        It is a symbol function of Sketch. .

        Allow XD assets to be registered in the CC library, etc.在设计的过程中,常常会有一些笔记需要随时被记录与查看,但是这些笔记并不需要在原型图上展现出来。
        如果可以给自己的控件做一个类似于备忘录的东西,那么将大大方便于改进与演讲。

        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.

        I think there are 2 requests for this. The other being 'Global symbol Library'
