Resize Autolayout Layer

Hello friends,

Odd question I know, but I have a table and I would like to make my columns larger by resizing the different “autolayout layers” larger, but only towards the right.

Currently, when I try to do this using the mouse or by enter a fixed value, the layer increases proportionally in size both to the left and the right.

Is there a way to increase only towards the right?

Thank you.

I removed the auto layout layers and increasing the width to the right on the text layer itself seems to work.

I’m still curious if this is possible with a layer that has an auto layout applied.

can you share screenshots or the file ?

after reviewing your file I saw that you made the auto layout aligned to the bottom center

Changing it to the bottom left Will solve your issue

Also the reason that it’s working on Column2 because you made the text inside as a boxed text

Changing it to auto width as shown below you will face the same issue
