Letter Spacing in PX
Would be very handy to adjust letter spacing in pixels. Because in CSS you also do it that way … and rather more .. there is no half pixel …
WTF is that?
I just found out now why the devs I'm working with hated me and was having so bad results from my designs!
Go explain to a dev that you choose "-0.84px" as a letter spacing better than a more round number.
I found this reply from XD team:
- "We’re working in milli-ems, which is 1/1000th of the point size of the font.”
Really? Can we have a least a reason for that? I mean, why not "kilo-pourcentage"?
Give us at lease the choice. Web devs or app devs are not same devs.
em / px / pt / dp.. as you do on other softs. Please keep it more consistent.
The worst thing is, you make the conversion to px/pt ton the shared link!
Give us the same within the application!
And sorry for the grumpy tone of my message, but now I have to redo +25 screens because of this.
And make scientific calculation for something as essential as letter spacing..
Thank you in advance!
Indeed, really needed when sharing designs with front end developers – px/rem is a more saying value for the most developers than AV.
The having av is a crazy notion as there is no correlation in px
Me and the designer I work with are very impressed with this software, but one of the issues I keep coming across is the units that kerming is measured in. Most of the other values of colours, font sizes, padding etc is transferrable in to CSS but not the kerning values. Could a unit size be added whether that be something like px / rem.

Definitely. I have no idea what the units are right now for letter-spacing. I had to make it 50 units, just to get it look like 0.5px
