Show dimensions in percent when measuring distances

Developers need percentage scaling to inspect

Developers has to design on different resolution screens. so they need some changes in the view mode. They need to change the scaling (pixel, percentage, points). Please resolve this issue as soon as possible.
Figma will be an excellent design tool ever.

  1. Is this a question about the plugins API? Seems like a general #product-questions topic.

  2. Can you show exactly what and where you want them to be able to change? They can view all measurements in different units for different platforms in the Inspect panel.

For example, invision gives the dimensions as % of the overall width of the mobile screen.

Is there a way to view dimensions in percentage instead of pixels for mobile in FIGMA as well?

No, there is no way to do that at the moment.

I’m interested in this as well. I hope Figma team can look into converting pixels to percentages without the need of another plugin. I’m sure there is one though…
