I suggest you ...

Text formatting (bold, italics, underline)

Allow text to be bolded, etc.

        I ran to Google for Markdown shortcuts (bold in particular) for Mockingbird .. so yeah .. that's what I expected to be happening :)

        text formatting can have a significant impact on the feel of a design. please add this! thanks!

        @lolmaus but widgets for links do exist. You could leave white space in a textfield and paste a link widget on top of it. :-)

        I'm guessing this includes letter and word spacing. If so, yes please this affects layout of elements and how much space they take up.

        It doesn't necessarily have to be cluttered, it depends how you implement it. Nevertheless, I think its more usable to have it.

        To those with concerns that the toolbar may be cluttered — other icons can be moved.

        This is the first good wireframing application I've used, but in other programs usually Group, Ungroup, move to front, align, etc. features are relatively hidden, not on the main toolbar.

        I've used group and ungroup often, but thanks to the good built-in snapping, haven't needed align. And I also haven't used any of the move-to-x features.

        @Sheena: BaseCamp uses something like MarkDown if I remember correctly, and they do a good job of making the instructions easy.

        Basic MarkDown or Textile support would be great. Being able to make text bold or italic allows for subtle emphasis which is really important while prototyping. I certainly wouldn't add more buttons to the toolbar to support this though!

        Yes, markdown would be perfect. Keeps it simple yet flexible. Needs no additional UI.

        Or use textile.Or what you could do is make a mini formatting bar at the top of the textarea box when in editing mode. Not a persistent formatting bar. I miss this in text area the most. Also a LINK style for simulating inline links.

        I'm afraid that if you implement this, the project won't be so simple and neat, as it is now
