Resize (not scale) multiple layers at once via shortcut

Sketch Resize is a plugin made for Sketch. It provides unproportional, unconstrained resize for multiple selected layer. It's triggered via shortcut, and doesn't require to reach nor focus the inspector panel.

Given a selection containing multiple layers, Resize tries to avoid the following limitations:

  • The scale layers feature (cmd+k) affects width, height, and some other properties at once, proportionally
  • After focusing the inspector panel via shortcut (alt+tab), in order to resize anything we need to tab twice, enter the width, tab once, enter the height, blur the panel (or press enter)
  • The inspector panel could be very far away from the current position of the mouse cursor
  • Nudging and dragging could be slow, or imprecise

Some additional notes

  • The plugin can be used on single layers, too
  • Width/height can be both declared at once. Leaving a field empty, or in its default state (%w/%h) will skip the related dimension
  • Width/height input fields accepts basic math operations (ie.%w+%h+(10+20)-8/4*2), where %w/%h are references to the original size of each layer
  • Press tab to focus between the width/height input fields, and cancel/confirm buttons
  • Press esc to close the panel and leave the dimensions unchanged
  • Pressing enter will always trigger the confirm button, no matter the focused element
