Auto Layout on steroid with display properties

Hello FigMates,

Problem:

  • Once you create an Auto Layout frame, the children frames of the Auto Layout are locked. Meaning you cannot add objects on top of them.
  • Therefore, the Auto Layout frame doesn’t have any depth and you are only forced to work with flat 1 dimensional layer.

Proposal:

  • Embed Z-Index and CSS position absolute/relative functionality. This way we can work with 1 dimensional Auto Layout, as well as adding more layers on top, and position them accordingly.
