Floating elements inside auto-layout

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

It would be very useful to have elements that can respond the legacy layout options within an element which has an auto-layout set up. Basically being ignored from the distribution.

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

I can imagine in the layout options of the element there could be a way to set it as floating.

Seems like something that is relatively common in design (e.g. popup x icon to close it or tooltip arrow) and it would be great to have it in Figma.
