Learn how to view and inspect attributes such as colors, text, measurements, component states, interaction highlights, and more in design specs.

In a shared design specs link, you can view and experience the prototype, add comments and feedback contextually, and choose to get measurements and specs information for the design.

Tabs in the design specs link
Tabs in the design specs link

Design specs link opens in the prototype mode by default. To get the properties and specs info, switch to the design specs tab by clicking the  icon in the right rail.

Upon switching to the design specs tab, you can select elements and inspect them on canvas to get attributes such as colors, text, measurements, states, and other properties displayed in the Property Inspector.

Click the {} icon to switch to the variables tab. This tab is available when the designer publishes a design specs link for web. When the designer defines variable names for colors and character styles in a design, you can view the design token information in the variables tab. 

Read on to learn how to view and match the attributes in a design specs.

Screen details view

When you click outside an artboard, you are in its screen details view. In this view, you can inspect the screen and details like interaction highlights.

B. Colors: View colors marked for export.

C. Layout grid properties: Toggle to view the grids.

Use the Opacity slider to control the transparency of the colors.


If you mark a layer for export in the XD app, colors used in that layer won't appear in the screen details view.


Click Interaction highlights to view artboard details, styles, design and viewport size, overlay position, colors, character styles, and target information for the applied overlay. 

Interaction highlights

Press and hold the shift key to view the interaction highlights. To inspect them, click the displayed artifact in the Interactions section, or Shift-click the interaction highlights. 

Layer details view

When you select a layer on an artboard, you switch to the layer details view. In the Property Inspector, you can view the layer name, and properties like dimensions and appearance.

Text and appearance

Hover over subranges within a text element to highlight similar subranges within the text element.


Object hyperlinks

Inspect object Hyperlinks

  • When you select an object on an artboard, you see all its hyperlinks in the Interactions section of the Property Inspector.
  • Hover over a hyperlink in the Interactions section to identify the associated object on the artboard.
  • To copy a hyperlink URL to the clipboard, in the object details section, click the hyperlink.
  • When you click a hyperlink in the Interactions section, the link opens. To copy the hyperlink URL from the Interactions section, right-click it.
  • In the Interactions section, when you click a hyperlink that has a protocol other than https or mailto, doesn't have a protocol, or has an invalid domain, the URL does not open. You get an error message at the bottom of the screen.
  • If multiple hyperlink interactions are defined on an object, you can't copy them from the object details section. Right-click the hyperlinks in the Interactions section to copy them.

Text hyperlinks

Inspect text hyperlinks

  • When you select a text object on an artboard, the Property Inspector (both Interactions and object details sections) shows any hyperlink interactions defined for that object as a whole. 
  • You can inspect hyperlink interactions defined for the text object like you inspect any object hyperlinks.
  • When you select text (subrange text) within the object and if that text has a separate hyperlink, the object details section reflects that hyperlink URL. However, the Interactions section continue to display hyperlink and other interactions defined for the object.
  • To copy a subrange text hyperlink URL to the clipboard, click it in the object details section.
