In order to make global typography changes, it would ber very useful to have paragraph styles as part of the feature set. Bonus: export CSS from these paragraphy styles.
I agree that this should not be closed, and I am less likely to use the product without better text support.
Caroline Sober-James commented
Kind of stunned there's no way to handle indents, space before paragraphs (there's space after, though...why implement one and not the other?), and other text formatting that's available in other Adobe products.
I agree it's premature to call "paragraph styles" complete. Text alignment seems to be complete...not paragraph styles. Please keep going with these -- they're super useful.
James Russell commented
There's no way to handle text indents, like in nearly every other Adobe application. Why is this still missing in XD?
UX Designer commented
Character styles are great but they're not a substitute for paragraph styles. This is not complete, please unmark it as completed
Brian Barrus commented
Not completed. Bare bones character styles, yes. Paragraph styles: no.
lets learn from InDesign! Please integrate a solution soon. Also, what is going on with superscript? I work in a regulated industry and I just cannot keep updating the Rballs #help
Should call them what the DOM does: map InDesign's print-centric Character and Paragraph Styles to an equivalent Block and Inline Styles here in XD for web.
Peter Villevoye commented
This feature is not fully completed, since the new Paragraph Spacing value is not yet included in the style.
I know, the Assets panel says "Character Style" so it could be aptly renamed "Text Style" or "Paragraph Style". Or it's time to open up Pandora's Box and start making a difference between Character Styles and Paragraph Styles...

If Adobe can make this work like it does in Illustrator and Indesign, its something that would make me switch from Sketch
Justin Caruana commented
Can we please get an updated on this? This would be a huge efficiency boost for most of us if we could define styles and overrides.
I think what we need here is like Illustrtor’s Paragraph Justification,
Simon Quinn commented
Wow, over a year later and such basic functionality as this still missing from XD.
Eli Sarpila commented
It is important to keep the text size clean.
Saving H1, T1, B1 makes design across more systematic
As we know the UX & UI design mostly based on Paragraphs and Text, so I see is very important to add Paragraphs justifications like Illustrator and the rest of Adobe Apps.

A list of 20 styles that are all named "Arial' is not helpful in any way ,whatsoever. A list of 20 styles with names like "H1, H2, H3, hyperlink...." THAT is helpful. It's so disappointing to have a need so basic to designers be missing at this stage in the development of this tool. Wondering if I made the right choice to add XD to my skill set recently when I could have chosen another option and encountered less frustration. My loyalty to Adobe products has gotten me far, but PLEASE. For the love of all that is holy. Give me NAMEABLE paragraph and character styles in my prototyping software.
Deal breaker. . Adobe has such powerful type controls. The lack of them in XD is puzzling.
Frank Prendergast commented
New to XD and have been looking everywhere for the paragraph styles.. I guess this explains why I couldn't find them!
Please add the ability to control the line-height/leading between individual paragraphs within the same text area.
This is a critical feature that is keeping me from rolling out XD to my team and 3rd party vendors.
