A text with multiple styles only the first one is show on design specs

For an example, when I have some bold text inside a paragraph, the design specs for that paragraph should state that not only that text is Arial 12px but also has some bold inside.

        This must be corrected ASAP. I'm trying to get a team of developers onboard with XD and the all the DEVs think something is wrong with XD and or me, the UI designer. It's not only quite difficult and a time-wasting laborious task of separating each type style into it's own unique text box, but it becomes a nightmare when making changes to paragraphs and sentences, and then trying to align all the text boxes and get them to look like they flow correctly. Having this "FEATURE-IN-THE-BACKLOG" is going to ruin XD and make Adobe and UI designers look incompetent.

        Please add a feature to show multiple text styles per each text box, when in Design - Spec view.

        Currently when creating a Design - Spec layout for a development team, each text box will only show a single type style in the specs. It's a real time-wasting hassle to separate different text styles into their own text box. If any changes are needed, the flow of text-box relations is ruined, when each type style in a paragraph or sentence line in separated out into their own text box. If they text styles are not separated into their own text box, then the developers get confused and complain (and then they think something is wrong with either Adobe XD or me, the UI designer). I'm trying to get a team of developers onboard with XD, and problems like this (described above) destroy my attempts and make Adobe look bad.

        This a major inconvenience when handing off files to the developers, especially when it comes to inline styles. At first I had multiple styles in a single text box (header, sub-header, paragraph), but I had to go back and separate all of these styles for the developers. Now I'm realizing all my inline styles, such as inline text links, are also unavailable to the developers. I can't feasibly split three words out of a paragraph into a separate box, this seems like a major oversight to me.
