Great to have this thread for wishes and requests. Here are some wishes from me.
1. A Text-tool for to place, scale, rotate, define and dimension text. Different font types has to be found by the system like in Inkscape, Libreoffice or other software, that the user does not need to find the path on his own on his computer.
2. Use-edge tool. It's a bit similar to the external edge refence tool, but if you choose an edge it's not needed to redraw it. Combined with a clever edge finding tool (all tangent edges gives a edge chain).
3. Use-edge with offset, the same thing as two, but with an offset in minus or plus or both direction.
1. A shapebinder with two different options, first use absolute coordinate position, second use the actual position like chrisb wrote here:

Let ShapeBinder be aware of the placement of Part; at least as an option.
2. A mix between solids and faces / shells inside a body. Have a look at the Solidworks vid with the Tide bottle. It starts with curves, then faces, shell and at the end it results into a solid with thickness.
So part extrude has to include into the partdesign workbench, as well as ruled surface. For sweep and loft I wish to have the possibility to chose between solid or shell, like in the part workbench.
3. It must be possible to start a project in a body and the first features are not connected. For example a engine block. So that you have the freedom to start at different positions in the 3d area, and at the end it results in a single coherent solid. Or for example a table made out of one piece, but you start your design with the four legs.
4. Integrate the part shapebuilder fully parametric into the part-workbench
5. Thin object, later you type in a wallthickness in minus or plus or both directions and a depht. Imaigne you draw just a u shape in the sketcher.
6. Variable fillet / radius with three or more radius points. The points are moveable.
7. Full round fillet. It determines the max. possible radius between two edges and creates it.
Set colors, please add the possibility to set one or more faces transparency.
Improved selection tools for faces or edges behind a shape. Multi selection for curves / edges with recognice tangency. Box select tool for faces that see the faces in front and suspend faces behind.
The improved selection tools recognize tangent edges, the result is a edge chain. Or you select one edge in the middle, one start and one end and all inner edges will be selected, same with faces, one in the middle and some boundary and inside faces will be selected.
A extend tool for extend (stretch) one or more edges / curves and faces along direction as well as tangent in normal direction.
That's all for today.
