Renaming character styles or symbols does not affect design specs
I tried out the feature of renaming charater styles and updated the design specs afterwards. When I opened the design specs they still had the original names. Rendering the feature half way useful.
I’ve moved this suggestion to the feature request forum for team to track.

Has this been fixed yet? Seems like a pretty big problem when handing off to developers.
Yep, without the names appearing in developer view, styles are almost useless.

Agreed...it's critical for developers to see the intended text hierarchies and classifications in Design Spec. The renaming has some usefulness in the design process, but far more at the handoff point.

Agree to the half way useful comment - what's the point of renaming all the styles to H1, H2, P and so on, if the developer can't see them on the specs?
