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.
This is something we’re currently investigating. Stay tuned!

This is definitely a killer feature. We were planning to move away from InVision-Sketch, but we're going to stay. We can't ask our clients to deal with this kind of things. Do something. 4 years for this, now that there's a Premium version, are far too much for your clients.
I concur, this feature would be useful.
I try to migrate from sketch to XD but seriously with this kind of fail....
We really need a proper preview !

Please Adobe, fix this. This is not a feature request, this is more similar to a severe bug
This is a meaningful limitation and make impossible for us to show prototypes to customers on their mobile devices...
For example, if we use icon based on font awesome, these will not appear on the mobile prototype. I know
there are some workaround to fix this, like installing missing font on the device, but there are many situations which make impossible to ask this to the customer, in most case this make it ungry/annoyed.
More than one time, customers told me that we are using a buggy/defective product to show prototypes to them...

Soon, it will be 4 years, c'mon guys.

I can't believe this is still not an option!
Please make this work!
+1. We can not test prototype with special branding fonts that we have used in design. This feature needs to be added first before even making it starter pack and upgraded pack versions.

Please please, don’t forget this. It’s so helpful and just makes sense!

Design software that doesn't render fonts ????? Come one guys, I expect to see this fixed if you want to compare to Figma etc.

So over 3 years on... how's the investigation going? Painfully slow, from my perspective...
Still nothing...design app with custom font or design iOS app with Android device in your pocket...R U KIDDING ME?
I feel the preview is useless without the font , all the UI got messed up ! waiting for this to be available .
SO PAINFUL WITHOUT THIS
This is a very needed feature. When I open my cloud docs on mobile, it shows default fonts.
This is really an important feature and will make things more portable and easy to share.
3 years for investigation this much needed feature???

When either in live preview (connected to a Mac) or in the cloud documents prototype preview on the iOS app, certain font weights w/ letter spacing stop rendering w/ the selected font family and instead default to some sort of system font. This makes presenting and demoing things in a finished styled state difficult, especially if the default font adjusts line breaks/spacing, etc.

its been 3 years. XD should incorporate it already. I would love to migrate from Sketch(Invision/Marvel) to XD, but i cant let other preview from their own device.
Yes please! I am trying to move entirely to XD without invision, but that simply won't be possible unless the team can test the prototype with the correct fonts showing.

This would be amazing to have for sure!
