Adjust line spacing between individual lines in area text

Currently if I want to change the leading between sentences in a text box, the change effects the entire text box. I would like to have the same functionality as Ai,Id, etc; by having the ability to change leading for individual sentences or to be able to separate a new paragraph from the last.

        Guys, what if we could set different line spaces for each line in the same text box? Nowadays the line spacing affects the whole content. Thanks!

        Please add the ability to control the line-height/leading between individual paragraphs within the same text area.

        Yes, yes, yes, yes. Anyone who has tried to style a bullet list in XD knows how badly this feature is needed. Please make line-spacing editable by individual line, rather than by the entire text box.

        Leading (line height)
        Kerning (character spacing)

        Leading is the issue with this update...

        I welcome the ability to add differing colours, fonts and sizes simultaneously within one text area in the recent update (Jun 13th 2017) but I cannot use this feature as I can't lead the text differently within? This is not a finished feature basically. So my request is that independent text blocks need independent leading please.

        This is something a "paragraph styles" feature would fix. Allowing you to set the spacing between paragraphs is one of things stopping me from using XD 100% in my workflow. It's annoying as all get-out.

        I don't think this is important feature. On top of that when you give project to HTML markup they will ask you to redo everything as separate blocks of text. Because they won't be able to measure the line height between individual lines quickly.

        If you want to increase gap between title and text or between paragraphs use different blocks of code. This is win-win.

        When you design websites think like coder, but not like pre-print guy.

        Really important this. Just started using XD and mostly great apart from the lack of paragraph formatting within a single text area/box. Currently have to use individual text boxes and space in isolation. This is holding me back massively – it's fundamental to typographic design, whether digital or print.
