Hi Bruno, Thanks for your reply.
I am well aware that the tool in Figma is not made for what I am looking for. If it was built for what I was looking for I would not need to put in a feature request.
The whole point of feature requests is so your users can tell you what they need and if you agree then you can incorporate it.
I’m a 30year+ design software user and use software like yours every day.
I’ve tried using butter, but its still a bit long winded.
Get your team to open Adobe Illustrator or Indesign and use their align and distribute tool. I don’t think what I am suggesting is out side the realm of possibility and would make designing in figma so much faster.
In practice it is only a slight tweak to a feature you already have existing.
Or maybe do what apple do and buy out Butter and then incorporate it natively.
I am not looking for instant results but if you want to be the go to industry standard I have a feeling we are going to be using your software for a longgggg time so it would be nice to eventually see a feature like the one I am suggesting in Figma.
Or maybe I should just migrate back to XD.
