Reusable dimension values

As an Android developer, I tend to use reusable values for spacings in the application to make design feel consistent. In designs I often found that some elements are not aligned correctly, for example there are few pixels more or less on some side. I understand that it is hard to keep an eye on it all the time, so I thought it would be cool if Figma could help with it.

I have an idea that on the file Design page (where color and text styles are defined) would be a new category for dimensions, which then may be used to define component sizes, paddings and used in auto layouts.

See attached image for an example.


Thanks for the feedback! We’ll pass this into our team for consideration.
