Adobe XD prototype link for development is not recognising font-awesome content

When sharing a UI prototype link which is set for development view so the developers can go in and get the CSS styling and source the exact icons used from the Font awesome library, it should tell the name of the icon within the content tab.

 

But Instead it displays a box with a cross ?  ( see below ) the font awesome font is uploaded via the adobe cloud so this should be working. Is this a current bug/issue with XD and font awesome within development links?

 The font awesome library Im using is the latest pro 6.2.1

  1. Using symbol fonts is not good and the icons really should be exported as SVG. Don't trust me? Google "why icon fonts are bad" to see numerous articles explaining why.
  2. Even though it's a weird box, they should still be able to copy that content and paste it into their code, and if they are using the font it will display correctly.

Just in case I wasn't clear... it's fine to design with the icon font in XD. They just shouldn't be implemented as a font in the final website. The final website should use an SVG icon.
