What does it do?

It adjusts the bottom padding on an override in a symbol instance

Example 1


Example 2


Example 3



This will not adjust the spacing between text layers. There are already plugins that do this well

How to use

Select the override you want the bottom padding to apply to and run the plugin



A background is needed in the symbol, even if it's a rectangle with no fill. A symbol with no background will not achieve the expected result Backgrounds

No overlapping

  • The selected override (that will have the bottom padding applied to) must be pinned to top and have a fixed height
