Note: there’s a limited version of this feature already available. If you select an existing piece of text and then leave it selected while you use the Text tool to create new text, its style will match the piece of text you had selected.

An update for you all – unfortunately, there are system limitations as to how we can use USB in Windows 10 / UWP. We’re still working with Microsoft to try to resolve, but this isn’t something we’ll be able to fix quickly. In the meantime, you can upload to the Creative Cloud and load the file in your mobile application that way.
Thanks Elaine for the feedback. Interestingly the USB tethering in Windows works fine with the Adobe Preview app using Photoshop. Hopefully Adobe can resolve the issues with Microsoft soon. Thanks nonetheless for all your hard work :)Andrew commented
I know the tethering option is available for Mac and that the XD team is likely working on a windows version, but just wanted to highlight how desperately important it is for us to have that. Without it, I have to keep saving the XD file, which then gets uploaded to the cc cloud and then refresh my device to see the changes. I'm on a really slow internet connection, so hence the reason USB would be greatly appreciated if it came sooner rather than later. Thank you!
Sorry we didn’t get back to you sooner. This is a known issue with some of the Windows font APIs we are using, and we are looking into improving this so all of the fonts are correctly grouped together and usable. Let us know if you run into any other fonts that are misbehaving, it’s always great to have some extra test cases.
This is something we’re currently investigating. Stay tuned!
