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.

This is a must-needed feature. Photoshop has this; AI has this; InDesign has this. Why not adobe xd?
I think Indesign does text well. Get your people to talk to their people maybe to see how it should be done? You're part of the same company after all. It's a pretty frustrating experience in XD.
I recently received a Sketch file of a completed app, imported it into XD and then had to spend an entire day splitting text boxes and introducing bullet points just so it aligned with the file I received.
Yep. The ability to apply typographical nuances is something I have grown to expect from Adobe products. The lack of control makes for amateur-looking layouts.

It would be really great to enable different text-styles, line-spacings and space after paragraphs for text in one textbox. Right now it is not possible f.e. to write a headline and text in one textbox and give them different line-spacings. Even MS Word can do that??
Been asking for this for a long time, took a year off XD. Back to check. Nope.
Paragraph Styles! Do it!

Basically we are asking for this to work like EVERY OTHER ADOBE PRODUCT.
Why is the typography in XD so screwed up?
same as "Paragraph spacing / Soft Returns"
solved by honouring soft carriage returns (shift+return) inside a text block
just updated and this is still not fixed - get your dev team some coffee please.
How does this functionality still not exist? So basic but it's the one thing stopping me from properly adopting XD. Please fix the character styles so that they honour line spacing settings or add paragraph styles to deal with this. I'm baffled.

By far my most infuriating missing feature of XD so far. Get this added please.

this is essential to quick mockups, otherwise you end up with dozens of individual text boxes to allow for different styling!

Must have, please and thank you
Please add the feature allowing individual line spacing adjustments between text lines.

I can't believe this still doesn't exist
Add Line height in individual text lines not just paragraphs.
Kenneth Kawamoto commented
Option + Up/Down Arrow Key to adjust individual line spacing (leading/line height) cf. AI, PS, etc

I would love for this to be added! When designing web pages I'd like to be able to have the title of an article in the same text box as the body copy. This would allow me to easily resize one text box and not have text either get cut off or break to many times and end up on top of other copy.
I've attached a screenshot showing how I've been setting type with different text boxes, and one showing the issue not being able to have different line heights in one text box creates.
Keep up the great work with XD though. I definitely don't miss trying to mock up this type of stuff in Photoshop or Illustrator. :)
Please add this!

This would be VERY helpful.
