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.
Every time I wanna insert a new text box on XD, I have to create the text box, type a text and then, only after I typed my text, I'm able to apply a character style from the ones I have on the assets panel. The problem is that XD saves in its memory the last text size I used last, and sometimes it's a big size, so every time I have to reduce text size to fit in the bounding box, so it's an extra work.
There could be a way to insert a text directly from a character style, without having to type a text before and only then applying a character style. It would be so much time saver if I could insert a text right from a character style already saved on my assets panel. I tried to double-click or dragging and drop a character style to my artboard to see if XD would create a text box exactly with that character style settings, but it didn't work.
It's always an unnecessary work having to firstly add a text box, insert any text and after apply a style.
Hey Ryan! Definitely something I’ve been looking for as well!
I can safely say this is a feature we’d all like to see in XD.
We need to have a monitor larger than an outdoor to see our artboard clearly. Adobe XD large sidebars look like those amount of toolbars people liked to install on Internet Explorer in the past, so they used to got a half of browser's height filled by those freaking toolbars.
HEY ADOBE, WHY DO YOU TALK ABOUT DESIGN "CONSISTENCY" TO EVERYONE AND IS NOT CAPABLE OF KEEPING YOUR DAMN CONSISTENCY BY INCLUDING THE SAME PHOTOSHOP AND ILLUSTRATOR FEATURES, LIKE TYPING THE LETTER F IN KEYBOARD, ON ADOBE XD ? WHAT HELL DO YOU THINK WE, USERS, ARE? STUPID? DO YOU THINK WE ALL HAVE THE SAME MONEY YOUR "UX ANYTHING" EMPLOYERS EARN PER YEAR IN CALIFORNIA? COME TO BRAZIL, LIVE HERE AND SEE THE DAMN LIFE WE HAVE TO FACE IN ORDER TO GET A STUPID DAMN JOB AND HAVING TO FACE A FREAKING BOSS EVERY SINGLE DAY.
SO, AT LEAST, JUST DO YOUR JOB RIGHT IF YOU WANNA US TO KEEP PAYING FOR YOUR DAMN SOFTWARE.
Here in Brazil is rare people who have good financial conditions to invest in high-level computers, and unfortunately I'm included on those stats. My monitor is 20'' which is small to who is a designer and needs something bigger. I hide and reveal panels in Photoshop EVERY time, and it would be absolutely helpful if we have the same possibility on XD. Hope Adobe take a look on this uservoice website, because we, users, know more than anyone else what we need to make our life less difficult.
Borders are really useless when we working on XD considering its function and what it was designed for. Borders are interesting and useful in a lot of cases, but MOST of the time, we don't need borders. Sounds like Adobe tested our limits on user experience sensibility with XD. It's not a random fact we have so much feature requests here.
