This would be super helpful. Much like how inDesign lets you relink to an assets folder, sees all the matching file names and auto updates the links, it would be helpful to have a way to point the components to a new "master cloud doc".
There is currently no way to move a "master" component to a new doc so you have to be super careful with how you make components which is frustrating.
For my specific case, we have a product that gets reskinned for different clients. Its super frustrating that I cant duplicate the Master Component file and layout file to make the needed adjustments. Instead I have to rebuild it all (unless I am missing something).

I’m marking this as feature in the backlog, as this is something we intend to do in the future.
Adobe, do you have any update on this?
It has really gotten old having one "single" person responsible for updating a link for a specific file. Or constantly swapping out links as different people work on the file.
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.

Man I could really use this feature right now. A prototype that I am working on right now needs this functionality and I am having to go through the painful process of building all this in invision.
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.

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).

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.
