Hello!

I use XD plugin "MaskText" when i need to layout in a small area because i don't want the extra space aroud text box. But I realized if I use this plugin, it doesn't show its font-size or font-family on design specs

At my design office, we share design specs with developers for coding, so I'd like to know if there is any way to show its font infomation without removing the mask.

I appreciate if someone can answer me.

Hi @Miku26355986xhl2, I installed the plugin and created a test file, masking the text with the plugin, as far as I can see, if you export your design for development (by selecting "Development" under the "View Settings" options under the Share tab) it's possible to see font and text size. You can see it here https://xd.adobe.com/view/6ff2e9f8-bfad-4a7b-9fc5-40c4b383d79a-3aa1/specs/ Hope this helps!

Thank you so much, AkinGn!! I really appreciate you installed the plugin and tried how it works!

My problem was when I click on the text area (Mask), it usualy shows the font information, but it doesn't when the text is masked... But I figured that if I click on the text area with pressing command button, it shows font information even if it's masked!!

Thank you for your help! It helped me to learn XD!! 🙂

Oh I see, great, you're welcome and thank you too, that's great to be able to see font's size by cmd-clicking even when it's masked and you just taught me that, happy designing!
