Using vertical rhythm
I use vertical rhythm in all my UI design. for more info on what that is see http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/improving-layout-with-vertical-rhythm--webdesign-14070
including some functionality to apply vertical rhythm would be great. This could be just guides, but would be great if there was something smarter.
For example... i make sure all my padding, margins and line heights are a multiple of 28px to retain vertical rhythm in my designs.
Since we haven’t heard back from you in over three months, we’re closing this feature request. Let us know if grids don’t work for you!
I'm for it too

Adobe team, please allow us to snap to line height or baseline somehow, rather than the seemingly arbitrary text box edges.
For instance, many design languages and best practices these days (Material Design being one) call for a 4 point baseline grid for consistent vertical rhythm, but if I turn on that grid in XD and try to snap to it, it's the box that snaps, not the line height or baseline, throwing the whole thing off the grid, requiring random nudging to get it to sit on the grid. If you're using 16px font size and 24px line height you should be able to always sit that right on a 4px baseline grid without having to nudge!
Grids can work, but there is a need to separate the horizontal from the vertical. Column grids and vertical rhythms.
