    Whether specific screen designers value kerning and tracking or not, XD is a visual design and prototyping application. Quality control over something as critical as typography is a base level requirement in an app like this. Feels like I am trying to kern in something like wix lol.

    I'd love to see the ability to edit kerning/tracking with the alt + arrow keys function. Kerning and tracking an entire website by entering numbers into a box based on different sections of highlighted text is excruciating and ultimately just poor UX.

    Kerning is essential. Otherwise you can't get a professional looking headline.

    as anon says, Kerning isn't necessary but tracking sure is!

    I often use extra letter spacing in headings that are all caps. I'd love to see a letter-spacing value in the Text controls.
