Add Auto Layout Wrap from right to left

A ton of great features launched yesterday. One of them is Autolayout Wrap. It might be just me but I couldn’t find how to wrap from right to left. This seems weird as Figma did an amazing job of closing its long technological debt when it comes to RTL languages. Please tell me this gap has not been reopened again…

Workaround tip.
I flipped the autolayout frame horizontally by dragging left or right border. better be empty because the contents will be flipped too. So AFTER flipping, start inserting your contents and VOILA, it’s RTL.

There’s NOTHING that warns you that this is an RTL except behaviour. And that’s the glitch, that Figma should fix for us, that some indicator is showing whether this frame is now RTL or LTR.

The best you can do to solve that until they is to rename the layer as such RTL or LTR, every single time.
