Since some update I have the problem that for whatever reason, sometimes the Auto Layout does not wanna work as it used too (see video). Usually I choose 2 elements, press Shift A and all works - these days I have to delete and do all elements new for it to work. Is this a bug or did something change I’m now aware of? This is driving me crazy.
Hey there, sorry to hear this has been happening!
It’s hard to be sure without being able to reproduce the bug. Are you able to share a link to your file so that we here in the community can take a closer look?
Second this, having the same issue. Auto layout makes a frame the size of the first element, then does not respond as it did before. Gaps no longer work, layouts no longer work.
I had this issue too.
What happens is, Figma is setting the icon up as “absolute positioned”.
Disable it, and it will work as expected – just that you can continue to work.
I don’t know why this is happening. I tried to reproduce it, but I couldn’t.
That’s some Figma bug with special polygon forms, I guess.
