Just watched a great tutorial on coding a responsive website, but I have one word for the process: Archaic. Where is AI for this? Webflow is making inroads but would be better if one never had to leave @AdobeXD at all. Design. Publish. Done.
In other words, as a designer, I should be able to design for web and with a touch of the button publish to the web, without ever having to export code or hand over to a developer. The startup, Mason, is attempting something like this, and Webflow allows one-click publishing. And although Webflow is close to what I'm talking about, it's still too developer focussed.
I've just gone through the frustrating process of designing my website, only to hand over to a developer and ultimately the end result is close, but not the same. It's a case of broken telephone and "unable to do that". The "Preview" mode in XD should give one a real sense of what the responsiveness is like, along with the ability to hit tablet, landscape mobile, and mobile modes, and, of course, show it exactly how it would look on the web.
This is the future of web design / creation. The same applies, of course, to app development. XD needs way more in terms of providing a functioning app, without having to actually code it. Anyway, a guy can dream, can't he?

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 :)
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!

The team is actively looking at this. In simple cases (install font manager, work in new files) things work as expected. We’re trying to isolate the scenario that shows at what point things stop working.
If you see this and have steps to reliably reproduce, let us know! My sincere apologies for the inconvenience.
Some synced typekit fonts won't work properly. In this example, I've synced the Urbana font, however when I select that font in XD, there are issues.
The font styles only sometimes work. Most of the time the text doesn't change. You can see in the images attached how urbana doesn't show up as a single font to select, with multiple font styles. Instead it shows up as separate fonts. Selecting urbana semibolditalic for example doesn't change the text.
It's not only with this font. I have had similar issues with other fonts from typekit.

This is something we’re currently investigating. Stay tuned!
