Hi I'm a dev with a Photoshop background and I can't find a way to simply click on a Sketch design text element and display the font family used.
Could anyone help me on this one? Thank you very much

If your text elements are outlines rather than editable text, then the font name, size and style are lost on conversion to outlines. This goes for all vector image editors, and not just Sketch App.
Ultimately this means unless the text is still editable, then the font information is not available, nor can the data be retrieved. Obviously this doesn't solve your problem.
I guess you could take a screen capture of the text and run it through whatthefont or fontsquirrel matcherator, or other similar online font ID services.
