Wonderful. Thank you, @Adam :slight_smile:

Why does Figma make you use plugins for simple features that are a part of every application everywhere? This should be a standard feature, imo.

One guess: It keeps the default software “lighter” and less resource intensive to run.

It’s not ideal but an alternative is something like Photoshop where there are so many features packed into every conceivable space that it becomes a massive bloated titanic that takes 5 minutes to startup.
