Overlay Manual Placement

Problem:
While prototyping we can’t place the same kind of overlay manually for different components on different pages, we have to place it manually, and it’s unnecessarily repetitive.

Probable Solutions

  • It should have editable and copiable X, Y coordinates.
  • We should be able to align it to a nearby object. page even

I think what you’re trying to do is possible. I believe you’re trying to put an overlay on a page like Header and Footer on all the pages. Make a design on the first page and then select the complete frames completely on which you wish to paste the layout and pasting it will instance it on all frames with the position reference from the master instance.

This wasn’t possible until 02 months ago, where figma team had improved the copy paste functionality.

I’d recommend using components as even a single change would be a nightmare.
