    I'd really appreciate having a new group defaulted to "Rename" mode with the focus on the new Group.

    Once in this mode, hitting <Enter> or simply clicking away would leave it as "Group 1" (or whatever) without actually interrupting work flow. So, it would not impact working behavior in any negative way.

    However, it would save an enormous amount of time in naming groups if one could simply click <ctrl-g> after selecting multiple elements and then just start typing.
    The current alternative is that one must take one's hand off the keyboard, grab the mouse, find the group, and then successfully double click without opening the group instead of putting it into "Rename" mode.

    I love this.

    In addition, I'd also like to see a new group defaulted to "Rename" mode with the focus on the new Group.

    Interesting idea, but I would certainly want it to be something a user could turn on or off in Preferences.
    Personally, I'd settle for having a new group default to "Rename" mode with the focus on the group name.
    Perhaps not everyone cares what the group name is, but I suspect most designers do more often than not.

    If the new group defaulted to "Rename" mode, hitting <Enter> or simply clicking away would leave it as "Group 1" (or whatever) without actually interrupting work flow. So, it would not impact working behavior in any negative way. However, it would save an enormous amount of time in naming groups if one could simple click <ctrl-g> and then start typing; the current alternative being that one has to take one's hand off the keyboard, grab the mouse, find the group, and then successfully double click without opening the group instead of putting it into "Rename" mode.

    This is a perfect example of a classic UX problem: "No matter how many times the user makes a mistake, they don't learn."

    This is a fundamental usability principle that points to bad usability design. If a user continues to use a feature or control incorrectly, it's the interface that's wrong.

    I'm not sure when this occurred, but there was definitely a time when you could rename an Artboard, Group, or page element and have the name stick when you click out (<Enter> key or not).
    Since that time, I continue to believe I've renamed an element only to look back later and see that it didn't take (because I failed to press <Enter>). After cursing XD, I fix the rename and might remember to hit <Enter> the next 2 or 3 times before I revert to the habit of typing a name and clicking away.

    One contributing factor to this behavior is the fact that Text elements not only don't require <Enter> to complete, it's not an option. <Enter> when typing in a Text element creates crlf. You must click away to accept what you've typed.

    To have 2 diametrically opposed behaviors for something that intuitively feels identical is maddening to the extreme.

    Agreed.
    There's a new update that allows the user to select previous links, but it only works if you've manually created multiple links on a document that has a continuous save history.

    It doesn't work if you:
    - Save a local XD document to the Cloud
    - Open a history version (focus of this request)

    In either of these cases, it's often essential to maintain the URL as links are published to various stakeholders.

    Possible Workaround for the author of this Request:
    Steps -
    1. Delete every artboard in current (official) version.
    2. Copy everything from the historical version
    3. Paste into current version
    4. Save

    There are a great many Feature Requests in the category of Cloud Documents that all represent a similar need.

    When attempting to manage more that just a few XD documents, especially with a collaboration team, the current manifestation of Cloud Documents is exceptionally cumbersome to navigate, access, and process.

    I've seen several interesting ideas about folders, sharing, tagging, and searching and they all point to the same central need:

    The ability for one or more designers to be able to access all of their work for a particular project in one place.

    This means that regardless of who originated a file, anyone who needs to work on that file should be able to find it in the context of related files in whatever way best suits the designer or design team.

    Accomplishing this could involve any number of changes, but the basics involved are:

    - Sharing files
    - Grouping files (regardless of owner)
    -personal grouping
    -team grouping
    - Searching for files
    - Sorting within an organizational structure
    - Uploading/Downloading for offline access

    All of these functions need to be available for single files or in bulk.

    Tagging.
    Folders.
    Combining Shared With Me into My Work Cloud Documents.
    Sharing folders.
    A true "My Work" area in which all of the above were applicable.

    Any of these things could help greatly for organizing on a team or personal level.

    From my experience, you are able to search Cloud Documents. However, you can't do anything with them except open them when you find them.
    Also, you can't search Shared With Me, so there's no way for anyone on the team except the owner of a document to really organize or find Documents.

    Honestly, I'd prefer to see the Share With Me incorporated directly into the same area as those documents I own. It's nice to have an indicator that they are Shared With Me rather than my own, but ultimately, if I'm working on several documents in a project, I want to see them all together; regardless of who on the team first saved them to the cloud.

    To clarify, at least for myself. I'm already seeing the ability to create folders in both Synced and Cloud Documents.
    The problem is, you can't share the folders. You also can't create folders in your Shared With Me section.

    This means that collaborating teams can't maintain an organizational structure.
    I've even tried to put organizational prefixes on files but they can't be searched or sorted in Share With Me.

    As this thread appears to have branched out to include the fact that Team Organization of XD documents needs revision in multiple areas, I'll enumerate the issues I've seen so far:

    1. Can't share Cloud Document Folders
    2. Can't create folders in Shared With Me
    3. Can't sort files by name in Cloud Documents once they've been put into folders.
    4. Can't search for files in Shared With Me
    5. Moving documents from Cloud Documents into folders is broken on numerous levels (Moving multiple selected files often fails or results in the file in 2 places. Can only move to parent or child folder. Etc.)
    6. Even for the limited areas in which you can search, the documents in the results list can only be opened. You can perform no other action on them. This significantly reduces the value and effectiveness of a Search feature.
    7. Can't download multiple XD Documents in Cloud Documents.
    8. Can't delete multiple documents in Cloud Documents.

    When you consider how long XD has been around (and how long this request has been in Backlog, the restrictions and gaps in functionality hardly suggest that the dependency of XD on Cloud Documents is even within the realm of MVP.

    Can we take a season off from updates with new, fancy features and do some work on making the tool more friendly to collaboration teams? The new Co-edit beta is impressive and flashy, but when in comes down to day to day work, it doesn't hold a candle to simply being able to organize your team documents.

    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.

    Every time.

    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.

    Workaround -
    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.

    +1 to @cjw comment
    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.
