  • Constraints are not relative to other layers, only to the parent.
  • Update Layout updates every artboard of the current page.
  • When a group is resized, all the children layers are resized. If you want a child layer to keep its size, check Width and/or Height.



As of Version 44, constraints are available natively in Sketch. πŸŽ‰ It's similar to Sketch Constraints except that the constraints are based on current value only.
