How do you implement text changes in your design files?

over 2 years ago from , Creative Lead @Avocode

Hello everyone,

I’m curious about your current text editing workflow. There are many reasons to change the text in your designs (clients want you to, you come up with a better variant, or you’re a/b testing content...).

How do you currently make text changes in design and in code?

We’re currently evaluating a new Avocode feature that would allow you to change the content of text layers in your design files. - Would you use such a feature? - And would you need to save text edits as new design file versions?

If you’d like to let me know about your workflow or any special requirements how you would use such a feature, please fill in the 2-min survey below or let me know in the comments.


Thank you.

    At the moment we just give the UX writer editing rights in Figma.

      This is the best I've come up with. In sketch its painful to work with a content editor. Its a lot of sloppy workflows: missing some details, lots of file syncing useless work, and always behind.

      The ideal workflow is they own the content, they can come in any time and update the text in the design I'm working on. Figma allows for this and currently is the only design tool that does. This is a huge oversight for other tools. I'd give up so many features for this. It eliminates workflow and version issues.
