How the heck measurements are working?

I have read this : https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039956974-Measure-distances-between-objects

It gave me a headache, and it doesn’t solve my problem.
You really need to simplify all this, here, Sketch does a better job!

I just try to know some distances like in the screenshot

Impossible also to measure in a frame with auto-layout
It’s not because I set it 2 weeks ago that I remember what I declared

Are you trying to measure distances by hovering layers in the layers panel? You need to hover elements on canvas, not in the left panel. And press Alt/Option.

Thanks @Gleb
Not at all :slight_smile:
I just want to show you that they are in the same level, really close and that it must be possible to get this infos

Yes I change my avatar clothes for the weekend :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Maybe there is some transparent object at the top that prevents you from hovering the second text? Or what do you see? I don’t understand your problem because everything works fine for me.
