Publisher: Having layers work like Framer stacks / Figma auto-layout?

Recommended Posts

Hey, thanks for clicking.

I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to get a layer to adjust itself according to another layer.

For example I have 1 layer that I might make taller, or some text makes the text frame taller etc., and then I have another layer below, as in Y coordinate, that just automatically adjusts its own position according to the layer above it.

If you have used Framer, I'm looking for the equivalent to Stacks, and if you have used Figma I'm looking for the equivalent to auto-layout grouping.

Thanks /

Just a comment: That can't happen with Frame Text, only with Artistic Text. The frame for Frame Text is only manually adjusted.
