Adding another comment to this because this is becoming more of an issue now with with Components, Character and Color styles. Switching back and forth between Layers/Assets becomes a complete pain.
It would be great to have a way to show both.
It would be even better if the panels could float outside of main work window. This way I can put them on a second display and have a larger canvas area.
I agree, I work on 3 large monitors 99% of the time, and it would be super useful to have both Layers and Assets panels exposed.
I am also in favor of making them floating windows so I can move them onto another screen if needed, or just arange them as I see fit.
Another suggestion on this topic, would be to put the buttons for Layers and Assets as tabs at the top of the panel. The bottom left is super awkward to access on a large monitor and not where I usually look for items.
For now I am just trying to make the most of the toggle hot keys

1. I would prefer if nothing happened (ie The clicking on the link does not slide the page in again)
2. I would be ok with showing the wire linking to the same page, just so you know its there. But honestly I am ok if it doesn't show.
3. I just want that link to get removed when the item is on the same page as a link. When I have a menu bar with 4 buttons. Each copy is missing one of the links, so I have to be extremely careful to copy the "right" linked up version.
4. It would be awesome for those wired links to copy over even if I am not in prototype mode. Its reallly frustrating to have to be in a specific view in order to copy an asset and its prototype links. It just doesn't match up with normal work.

For Components like a "Menu Bar" or "Header", more often than not, the items with in the component (e.g. Menu item 1, 2, 3 & 4) all link to the same four screens.
Currently I can place a child component on my artboard, wire it up in prototype mode (then while still in prototype mode) copy the component and paste another child.
The problem is when I forget and drag out a new component from the library or copy paste from the parent component. I then have to wire up all my prototype links again.
Another useful part of this would be to not have prototype links break when the component is placed on an artboard it was already linked to. This would allow you to also copy / paste child components from anywhere and retain all the linking.
It would be awesome to have the ability to create one single Navigation / Menu bar symbol, and then have a way to chose which "state" the symbol shows.
- Nav Item 01
- Nav Item 02
Currently I have to create a symbol for each of my navigation states, with sub symbols (that span each of the nav states) so that I can globally update colors and icons. It is workable right now, but time consuming.
In Photoshop I was able to achieve this using Smart Objects with different layer comp states saved out. It was far from a painless process, but it was achievable and sped up my prototyping and comp creation time.

The best way that I have found to achieve this is to copy the Component (formerly Symbol) when in prototype mode. Then when you past it on a new artboard (and I believe duplicate an artboard) all the prototype links are preserved.
Things do get wonky with navigations, when you start on one board (A) that links to (A, B, C & D). When you paste from A to B. Then copy from B to C... the component on C will no longer link to B. Because the Component kills links that try to link to the same artboard.

Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.
+1 to the "Additional Request 2"
I would love to set up style sheet for my text and then apply that to all my text areas. This way if the font face gets changed partway into the project I can easily change it in one spot.
Right now I am having to manually update every last text area in my document. Its a real pain.
The plus side of doing this is that once again you are getting XD closer to working the way that code does.

I would love this feature and would bring my XD designs closer to the way that it will be built.
Instead of making two 1px horizontal lines that cap off a section, I could just make a single box with a top and bottom stroke (which is how the DIV styling would actually be done).

We’re working on a visual versioning system for XD documents. You could see a preview here: https://youtu.be/pf35qphKOWE?t=1h7m51s

Sorry for the confusion. This behavior in XD is intentional. Only the user who created a prototype link is able to update that link. The thinking is that the owner for the link may not want others making changes.
At the moment, the only way for multiple people to update a prototype at the same URL is to be logged in with the same Creative Cloud account. We are however discussing adding the ability to specify more than one owner for a prototype – and we could then allow all owners to update the prototype link. It sounds like this is what you were expecting and the behavior you would like to see, is that correct?
You have my vote for this feature.
The way our team works, no "single" person owns a file. One person will start the file, but there are changes being made by multiple people and we need the ability to update the prototype link without having to force the person who created the doc to rePublish.
I agree, when working with lots of boards it would be really convenient to have an easy way to shuffle the order around.
Would also be nice if there was a way to turn on default spacing between boards that you could control. For instance, if turned on, you could keep all artboards 100px from each other.
