Integrate Design Specs view inside Adobe XD desktop app
Having Design Specs online is great, but it should be available inside the app too! OFFLINE.
Thanks in advance.
This offline feature is very important. It would make it easier to use XD in the development department in compliance with safety regulations and would save a lot of time.
Additionally a kind of offline viewer independent from the installed XD app would ease the collaboration.

Yes, often I end up going back and forth between XD and my browser, making tweaks to the project in order to clean up what the developers are seeing in specs. Would be great if I could see the output in XD without having to update the development link.
We have a large design and development team with team members working remotely and in different areas of the building it's extremely important that our design specs are a single source of truth, but with so many designers and developers working on a projects it quickly becomes difficult to manage the links to Spec files.
This has meant that we have had to create a central resource in google docs to manage the links to Specs.
It would be so much easier if the specs were somehow integrated into XD (kind of like the prototyping area), or if specs could be exported locally.

It is better to include a window for get the design specs inside XD. Why need to publish to see those? It will help to save a lot of time.

I have to admit, this makes perfect sense to me. Why only make it visible online?
yes, we should see the design specs in the programm. figma does it very well with different tabs. no need to publish to al specs link to see it. makes it faster to see the changes in the code

That's the main obstacle for not using XD in companies with a little more secure environment.
For purpose of project sharing we can at least, store it in a shared folder and open with XD, but when comes to design spec we can even see it without publishing it to adobe cloud!
