This should have been a feature from the get go. Please add soon.
I stand corrected. I am able to add more than 11, but I was trying to add a style that had the same properties as an existing one.
This seems to be a serious limitation because there are situations when duplicate styles are necessary. Designing a responsive website is a specific use case.
For example, responsive type styles often carry the same properties but at different breakpoints. So, "Title Style A" for desktop screens happens to have the same properties as "Title Style B" for mobile.
So to keep the application of these styles consistent across artboards, it helps to have two separate styles even though they have the duplicate properties. This adds clarity in design and dev workflows.
Running into the same issue. My "Title B—XS" has the same properties as my "Title C—XL," but need to have them defined separately so I could easily apply the correct style to the matching breakpoint.
Currently, I can only add a max of 11 character styles.
I often use about 20 styles to account for responsive sizes. For example, if I have 6 display styles,—i.e. Display A, Display B, etc—I will need 2 sizes for each particular style: one for XS screens and one for XL screens.
I’m working on Mac + XD 13.1 (our latest release) and able to add 20 character styles. Not sure if there’s a limit, but for sure not 11 on my end :)
Can you provide detailed steps of how you’re going about adding that 11th style? Is it possible that you might have a text object selected which already has character style saved in the assets panel?
