Auto layout vertical padding mix up

Every-time I try to add vertical padding above a frame having auto-layout, it adds the padding below instead and vice versa.

If you check out the image I’ve shared below, I added padding below the frame but it has added it above.

Apparently your “Frame 45” is rotated 180°.

Nope, I checked that too. It’s been happening every-time I create a frame and apply auto layout. The orientation of the frames is still 0°.

Instead of being rotated, it can be flipped. Press Shift + V on it. If that doesn’t help, share the file link.
