Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

Hi everyone,

I’m glad to announce that the text uppercase, lowercase and title case transformations are now available with the XD 19 release.

Pro Tip: You can apply the transformations to characters styles and make global updates across the document.

Enjoy and let us know your feedback!

Best,
Dan

    Please add the feature, team. We would love to stop to wasting time. Please!

    Really need an UC/lc feature as in InDesign and Illustrator. It's a waste of time to keep retyping, and oftentimes I want to check the look of UC vs lc in various layouts.

    I love XD for a lot of reasons, but not having the text functionality of InDesign and even Illustrator creates inefficiencies. It costs time and money for our clients when we have to take extra steps to do things manually.

    Please make XD LEAN.

    Really need all caps feature ASAP,

    Its getting frustrating having to retype text to make it all capitals, it slows down the whole work progress when XD is meant to be a quicker design process, same with all lowercase.

    Please add an all-caps feature. I'm not sure why this has been "under review" since 2016, it seems obvious that UI designers would all have the common need to transform their text in a few basic ways?

    Please don't feel like you have to add every possible transform feature before you can ship an improvement. It was nice that you shipped the underline feature without making us wait for the whole kitchen sink. So please keep doing that approach. If all-caps the the next most important thing for text formatting (as it is in my case) then please ship that as a small iteration, so we don't have to wait longer than necessary. Thank you.

    2018 and we still don't have basic transformation.

    Please adobe fix it.

    Work together with other software departments;
    It's unbelievable how saturated each program is vs each other.
    I understand not every interface is the same. However I were a developer at adobe I would sit down and ask... Why not make basic interfaces such as layers / text / etc coherent through similar projects.

    This is a required feature. To not have it is terrible

    Please add features to work with text that can be achieved with CSS. That would seem logical as this is supposed to be a UI design app. This is the third time I've tried to use XD for design and it reveals itself to be useless within 10 mins.

    Why is it that every new Adobe app is great on the surface and utterly crap on the seccond look? I'm back in the sketch land.
