Hey everyone, just wanted to chime in and say thanks for all of this feedback! While we don’t share timelines, and can’t go into too much detail of our roadmap, I can assure you that the team is aware of this and is definitely looking into this as a future improvement to auto layout. Keep the feedback coming!
I want negative values to be able to put icon on image, so like in code I could say I want this icon on the image from 16px from left and 16px from top. Would be amazing o.
+1 Negative padding needed big time as requested in original post.
Please, I need negative padding!
HI @Eddie_Velez , in that case, I think you’re facing a problem very similar to mine when positioning items through the z-axis.
There’s a feature request open for editing the z-index of elements, you can take a look, leave your use case there and upvote the discussion so we can make the Figma team aware of this issue. Z-index property that is independent from Auto Layout - #11 by Roger_Junior
I would sell an arm and a leg to get this feature. Please try and release this!
I would kiss you if I knew you for requesting this
Please Figma we need it!
Agree! Freedom of speech, transparent elections and negative values in Auto layouts XD
+1 this feature would be super helpful
Plus - it won’t keep the negative spacing if you remove elements in the instances, so it doesn’t really work for most usecases.
I would pay a lot of money to get this
Dear Figma, I really really really need this feature!

Technically you can independently control a border if you use a shadow with a blur of 0.
I’d love the ability to use Auto Layout to create an overlap of two components. Like this for example:
Currently, I group the components and manually adjust the positioning.
Love to get people’s thoughts on this!
I can not wait anymore!!
One year and 736 votes later… still nothing much I’m afraid. Must be one hell of a refactor needed then for this small feature…
