Inspect feature within DSM?

are there any plans to offer a feature similar to the current Inspect mode within Invsion Prototype projects into DSM?

I think this would be very helpful to allow access to attributes/info of assets other than just type and colors.

    @shaina,

     

    Thank you for the quick response! That would be great if that feature is considered and added and would help streamline design to development - as we are planning on using DSM as the single source of truth, and the screens uploaded to prototype projects as general guides for layout and view/UX/UI composition. This will definitely be a large consideration factor with our team for using DSM and the Invision platform.

    I would also just like to add that the ability to inspect through DSM would also be extrememly useful for our engineering teams when reviewing components synced from Sketch to DSM. Simply so engineers can easily grab size and colour attributes. This would also prevent design from needing to list a large variety of styling RGB attributes. Thanks!

    Thanks Shaina,

    Yes this is something I asked when I first starting looking at sample DSM projects. It would be great for our company style guide! Thanks again.

    I wish I could upvote this ten thousand times. 

    The reason my development teams abandon tools like Inspect or Avocode is because the copy/paste feature is not aware of the CSS style classes that have already been created, making the tool basically unusable for them as-is.

    Unfortunately global search and replace for a color string isn't a great substitute - sorry, Avocode :(

    The ability to link a preconfigured style sheet like the ones we create from DSM would go a long way towards getting Inspect adopted internally.

    Please, please, please tell me this is coming soon!
