Character styles don't work - where to click in the UI to get them to work

Hi XDers.

Just had a support call with Adobe about the character styles in XD not applying when clicked.

Now I thought I was pretty savvy when it comes to UI, but it appears that you have to click on the 'colour swatch' or 'Ag' text portion of the character style and NOT the whole character style box.

If you click on the whole character style box it does nothing. I think this is a bit of a UI nightmare. Why can't I click on the whole box to apply the style? Means I have to go all the way over to the colour or Ag part. Double clicking allows you to change the name so that wouldn't be the reason.

Anyway - hope this helps someone else who may have the same issue.

Hi James -

Thanks for sharing your feedback. We have fixed this issue in the upcoming XD release so that you could apply colors or character styles by clicking anywhere in the tile.

Please share with us your feedback once you try it out.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, we don't share release dates, but as you probably know, we release every month! You can expect this fix in an upcoming monthly release.

OMG I feel so stupid! I had the exact same problem, on the verge of tears/ having a mental breakdown / questioning myself as a designer :')

It worked for me, thank you so much!
