The reason i want to convert the text on my website to paths is so i can align it perfectly in adobe xd. If i don't do that the text cannot be aligned perfectly. I would like still people to be able to copy text from my website if they want to. Would they be able to do that? Are there any other downsides if i do this? How do YOU perfectly align your text? Or do you keep it as text without converting it to paths and align it just roughly and not perfectly? Thank you

Converting text to paths will mean the develop can't copy and paste it as text from the shared link you'll provide them. So it's not a good idea because of that, and it can't be edited in the future.

 

It's hard to know exactlty what alignment issues you're having without seeing a layout, but asides from the smart guides which appear, you can manually draw guides and use the arrow keys to nudge things into position.

 

One thing to keep in mind is that your design may not be translated into code

The usual alignment works fine for me. That depend on layout. Can you share screenshot and explain exactly what is not aligned correctly? Thx
