Name Character Styles

It would help a great deal if Character Styles can be named. Right now it is tough managing them and knowing which is which.

        Ok, I found that feature but it works only on list properties view and it doesn't work on grid view.

        For my work I can only use XD once this function is working. I have to design based on an already coded repository, that has names for each component and each character style. If I can't have associated names to the character styles or symbols matching the names on repository they don't know what is the component to pick up. It's important to include this names to the "Publish Design Specs".

        I would love to have naming and folder options for character styles. i don't work with a great deal of styles but going on 8+, you get to a point of needing some structure for everything.

        It may be seem simple but very necessary for our designing process. We could named for example, this text is a H1 for main titles, H2 for descriptive texts or subtitles.

        This is absolutely needed. We need a way to categorize styles in whatever way is useful.

        Yeah. This is a UI design tool so why isn't it designed with basic CTA button and h1-h5 considerations in mind? How about giving text a box border so we can create CTAs that grow shrink depending on text length? Just like the web. Top/bottom left/right padding.

        + names for colors
        We often use names in PSD - such as “link”, “btn idle” etc

        Would be an extremely useful feature as multiple character styles get a bit complicated.

        Also be good to have the option to put them into folders based on screen size or with a bespoke top level group title.

        Desperately needed. Otherwise the styles are nearly unusable.
        And this this is needed not only for character styles.

        It's actually bit confusing as to why Adobe didn't add this in as a feature from the beginning? This would help greatly to prevent visual design stutter as a designer has to think an extra second to make sure they have the right character style.
