Embed fonts for 'untethered' mobile preview from Creative Cloud

Would be nice if fonts were embedded into the XD file. If not you aren't able to preview the app design with the correct font from iOS or android when syncing from creative cloud.

        Whose genius idea was it to use an image preview for desktop and a different method for mobile that doesn't support missing fonts?!?

        I'm using your recommended Google Material UI kit icons as part of my XD project and have just published a mobile prototype to find that the Google Material font is 'missing... At least it is on my Google Pixel!

        Guys, come on, get with the program.

        Yes. It would be great for the an option to embed or outline fonts for mobile preview.

        yes please, this is very important to me, the preview on the mobile phone looks too different from what I've designed...

        On iOS, the first time you preview via USB and disconnect then the fonts render correctly until you close the app or try to open it up after awhile.

        It would be nice if all visible layers in the screens (artboards) were "flattened" to .png or better yet .svg when previewed and interaction maps were added on top.

        I thought this is what happened when we publish a prototype but maybe XD needs the correct fonts before the flattening can occur?
