Convert all text to paths

Is there any way (Plugin or XD natively) to select all text layers and convert them to paths?

I know that you can filter for text on the left pane but then you are not able to select multiple layers.

I want to do this because I want to preview the design on my phone but it says that there are missing fonts. If I would convert them to paths, I should be able to preview them.

Thanks in advance!

I'd say this is a bug that you cannot select multiple layers - may be you can file it? Adobe XD: Bugs: Top (771 ideas) – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs

There is possibility to select all text objects and Convert them from context  menu: Path->Convert to Path. Does it works for you.

Also try to copy them in Adobe Illustrator , convert them in Illustrate and past back into Adobe XD

The problem is, I would have to select them manually because the multiple select doesn't work when I filter for just text.

Illustrator also doesn't seem to work properly.

Now this is really stupid. They have all advanced animation feature but you can not select multiple layers? So frustrating.
