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.
Still under review?!
Not only will I never use the current default font family, we can't even change the font upon entry. We actually have to type the text first, then go back and modify it.
It get that there a several work-arounds. Basically, I duplicate text now because the tool is so frustrating.
How hard can it be to expose the default font in Properties somewhere?!

Note to Adobe:
I see this request has been "under review" for over 2 years. Here's a little something that might help you push it over the edge.
Given that an enormous number of feature requests revolve around the ability to make styling adjustments to objects that mirror what's possible in CSS on a page, taking on this request would allow you to clear dozens of related requests in one stroke.

I just want to be able to publish a Developer doc after removing the interaction.
Once you've made an interaction, you can't publish all the artboards unless they are all wired. If you unwire them, you can't publish a Dev Doc anymore.
It's getting very discouraging. Every (and I do mean every) time I do a search on "How to", I end up here in the feature request zone. Up until now, I've been reasonably impressed with how the product has continued to mature, but it hasn't taken me long to discover that XD is still not a viable design tool for professional work.

Forgive me if I'm over-simplifying the greater request here, but I have a workaround for updating multiple objects (the reason I found this post). This, of course, does not solve the requested parameter of linking to objects from Photoshop or Illustrator, but it does provide a way to update the same object across multiple artboards.
If you turn the object into a symbol and then place it on all the appropriate artboards, you can update them all at once or bring in a new object and replace the existing one with it.
This latter procedure is done by making the new object a symbol as well and then dragging it into one of the existing symbol positions.

Definitely want replace all; one symbol for another.
In case the need isn't clear, here's a use case:
I have a series of icons that are one color.
In a different page setting, I need several of them to be a new color. Editing a symbol changes them everywhere. So, I need to ungroup one, change the color, turn it into a new symbol and then replace all the other instances on this new page to use the new symbol.
Otherwise, there's a large amount of duplicate and move going on.

Well, I just don't know what to say about this. As a software developer, I understand many reasons why feature requests aren't addressed immediately. However, the fact that this one has 5410 up-votes makes me sad about the other [essential] features that have fewer than 1000 up-votes.
From a sales perspective, adding flashy features (like auto-animate) that appear to make design creation faster are certainly a priority. Given that this software is still free, I'm not sure I can agree that these things are more important that providing actual abilities.
Given a choice between things I can already do made easier and things I need to do be still can't, I'm inclined to push towards the things I need to do but still can't.
One would think that XD has reached a maturity level that most (if not all) formatting that is available through CSS would be available in the interface. If it's so hard to create an interactive interface for simple styling effects such as border-bottom, then perhaps the feature request we should be making is the ability to type (paste) in actual CSS for any object.
