Highlight text style in the Asset Panel when selecting object on the canvas
Selecting text on your art-board automatically highlights its style in the Assets window
It's hard to tell which Character Style in the Assets window I need to modify to affect a certain set of text boxes.
To be able to click one of my text-boxes and the relevant Character Style gets highlighted in the Assets window.
When I need to find the asset in the assets panel, I need to right click 'reveal component in assets' or 'reveal color in assets' or 'reveal character style in assets' and it's very annoying. It should be highlighted automatically!
Hello, I am currently working on a document with a lot of different character styles. Identifying which text is connected to which style is a bit of a hassle, I realised.
I think it would be a great idea to add a means of showing this text is set to this specific style. Something akin to the diamond icons with components.
FYI I am loving the new release. I was about to jump ship to Figma and then you guys released this amazing update. Keep up the good work.

The option "Right click element > Reveal Character style" is not a sense of UX and fast designing process. It would be great just to highlight everytime in the assets panel when an object has been selected. And if an element from the assets panel was overridden, then it highlight it different – dashed for example.
In Indesign this feature is working perfectly with styles and colors and it should be implemented in XD also! Thanks!

Instead of right-clicking and choosing it from the dropdown.
Right click to reveal character style is a bit time consuming. I'd actually prefer for the character style to be listed in the Text panel on the right rather than jumping my asset panel around just because I selected something. It would be nice to see at a glance that something has a style assigned to it, without having to right click to discover it.
Now, if you list it there, will there become an expectation that you can also change it from the right-hand side? Maybe. Kind of like how you can pick colors from either side (although those should be more integrated... but that's a different issue.) But-- at least being able to SEE it would be super informative.

Looks like you can now Rclick element > Reveal Character style.
This is a bit awkward. Why wouldn't XD just do this automatically?? (every text editor and other Adobe product works this way)

This is exactly what I need. It would help so much in the workflow!
hey everyone, i just realised this is sort of there, RMB any text or Symbol and select Reveal Character Style in Assets or Reveal Symbol in Assets depending on what you are working on. Thank you XD.
Please this should be a simple one, when i select an object or text on my artboard, for XD to highlight the style being used on that text or object style in the asset stack. We work with 100s of styles and assets, it's very hard scrolling through them all trying to work out which style is being used. Thanks.
I recently explored the new "Reveal Color/Character Style/Symbol in Assets" implementation. It works. You right click on the element and you choose the above mentioned option, but I believe the right functionality should be exactly as the Layers Panel works. You select an element and it automatically highlights it in the panel. Right clicking is a pain and can be time consuming.
Currently there is "Reveal Color in Assets" item in right-click menu to highlight appropriate color in Assets. This should be done automatically similar to Illustrator's spot colors.

This issue is the same as this: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/32286622-active-character-styles

It would be awesome if you could see which character style was being used when text is selected.
