Control over Auto Layout default settings (Hug, Fixed, Filled)

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this

Every time I enable Auto Layout (AL), the detail setting is set to Hug Contents. I realize that in some cases, it makes sense, but not always. We use the fixed width/height quite often, and changing it manually every time to fixed is pretty annoying.

Probably introduce a user setting for default AL behaviour or remember the last setting used. Meaning that if I used Fixed the last time, it would be the initial setting next time I enable AL.

  1. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)

AL is a versatile tool, and more flexibility would make it even more user-friendly.

  1. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
    (e.g. Does anyone else experience this? Is anyone using a plugin or workaround to help solve this?, etc.

Came here as I was searching for the same issue. It’s minor but it would be a nice quality of life improvement for autolayout to somehow not assume that by default I want everything to be “hug contents”. In fact, the first time I’m drafting a component, more often than not I want it to be fixed and then apply hug contents later (although I realise that’s specific to my workflow)
