You can't modify font widths within XD proper, but you can do one of two things:

  • If you want to do a general change across the board, you can always convert your text to path (Cmd+8 on Mac, Ctrl+8 on Win), and then stretch it out that way. Note that the text does not remain editable
  • If you want more nuanced text control, you can use some of the text features in Illustrator, then bring those in as paths

 

Otherwise, you might want to look in UserVoice (https://adobexd.uservoice.com) and upvote some of the text features there. Thanks!

Hi there,

 

Thank you for reaching out. It looks you are trying to make changes to the text. You can do that by selecting the text and make changes in the text from the text properties available in the right hand side properties panel.

 

Let us know if that helps.

 

Thanks,

Harshika
