With FontAwesome font files and the like, it's impractical to make quick use of their icons/glyphs without a palette, as the entire character set does not use qwerty, but are special/hidden characters.
I can live without granular type tools like kerning, but not having accessibility to the glyphs of a given font file is a dearly missed feature from working in Photoshop or Illustrator. At least on OS X, the OS character viewer is not as friendly as Adobe's other implementations of the glyphs palette.
Thanks for your hard work.
Yes, add it!
As someone that does a lot of French work that requires special characters, this is a must.

What are you doing. Figma already have this feature but you are sleeping 😴
Please add characters and number style and also add the support of glyphs. Add All characters related features
Your all other software have this but why not in Adobe XD.
See the attached image. I use raleway font, see how it looks without numbers styles and glyphs.
Check yourself why designers need this features

WE NEED GLYPHS PALETTE!!!
Glyphs are important too #pleaseaddglyphpanel
The current workaround for this is to have InDesign or Photoshop open so you can access the glyph panel there, add the desired character to a text frame, then copy it and paste it into XD, and finally, apply the correct font to the text glyph. At least there is that, but it's time-consuming. Would love to have a glyph panel of some kind in XD.
Adding my vote to this – I now find myself creating more and more web layouts in XD, but to not be able to amend glyphs/specific characters as I regularly do in both Illustrator and Indesign is incredibly frustrating. It's a real design limitation. Please help! Thank you.
Just amplifying that this is still not available, and it is so necessary. I find XD being useful for more and more design work - social media assets, etc. But not being able to properly typeset is so frustrating. Please prioritize this.

On Windows, to see Glyphs of installed fonts, run command Charmap.
Definitely agree, this is something required for serious work.
