Keyboard shortcut to change line spacing
It would work like in Illustrator: Select all text - press alt and either up or down arrows to increase or decrease the spacing. That is assuming there isn't shortcut keys already?

YES PLEASE!!!! need the same key commands like in Illustrator and Photoshop for tracking and kerning. I am sick and tired of using sketch--- option+comtrol "T" and "L"
We really need shortcuts for letter-spacing and lineheight as we are used to in Photoshop/InDesign/Illustrator always using alt+arrowkeys there
We need shortcuts for kerning / tracking as well. Currently there is A LOT of friction for spacing out letters and adjusting line lengths. If the XD ethos is "less friction", why don't we have shortcuts for typography??
Please add this so it's in line with other adobe products.

Adding these shortcuts will greatly increase productivity. I can feel the minutes/hours being wasted every time I have to mouse over to the leading option.
Having the same keyboard shortcuts in XD as in Illustrator would be great!
I REALLY want to adopt Adobe XD, but I am a power user. I use ALL of the shortcuts I can to manipulate things without having to interact with panels.
It is really frustrating that NONE of the text manipulation shortcuts are present.
I know you guys are building this from scratch, but honestly I can't adopt this until I can work quickly and efficiently.

And for font size... and for kerning and letter spacing... pretty much need keyboard shortcuts to drive all type attributes.
