  1. Select Same / Position on artboard

    An option that can be added on the Select Same menu that could be useful for selecting elements that hold the same position on each artboard. Could be useful for page numbers, titles, logos, watermarks etc.

  2. Inertia scrolling aka "flick panning"

    Scrolling around artboards should adhere to the OS standards of having some momentum to scrolling, or at least the option to enable "flick panning" like Ps

  3. Select similar colors (with a tolerance slider) so you can round up and streamline elements in a messy document

    This is basically a tolerance slider added to Select>Same>Fill Color. It would just allow you to cast a wider net to quickly select colors and convert them to a single global color. It's very hard to track down a color that's 1% off from the others in a complex file otherwise. It could also help process multi-color graphics into a limited color palette more efficiently

  6. Ability to Link or Tag Objects

    When designing on multiple artboards, there are often some objects that are supposed to be at the same position on every artboard.
    Unfortunately grouping doesn't work for onesided links (as in you can't change the position of one object without affecting the object it was linked to). The feature does exist in Photoshop but since PS isn't vectorbased it's not an option for me.
    Being able to tag or link multiple objects independent from it's group, and then either move the original layer it was linked to (like how an empty layer in After Effects is often used) or select…
