Viewing DSM data

In the left-hand layers panel of Inspect, DSM items are denoted by purple icons.

Select a layer from the layers panel, or select a layer on the artboard directly. The right-hand informational panel will then display a DSM section with the relevant data. Click any of the data points to view the DSM documentation site.

Switching design systems

In the DSM section of the right-hand information panel, next to the design system name, click the drop-down and select the appropriate system. The displayed information will change to reflect the chosen design system.
