Spacing between items - Adjusting values by sliding

When I have vertical direction auto-layout and I want to adjust space between items by sliding the values (within properties panel), I need to slide horizontally. While slider is moved horizontally, auto-layout items are adjusting verticaly.

In my opinion it should adapt depending on the direction which sounds logical to me, yet again not to everyone :slight_smile:

It’s a bit hard to understand what you are suggesting. Some screenshots or a video recording would help. Is this a question or a suggestion? If it’s the latter, feel free to edit your topic and move it to #product-ideas category.

Thanks Gleb! In video I uploaded we can see how I change the value in properties panel by press+horizontal slide and auto-layout components move verticaly. I suggest improving this feature by giving user a possibility to press+vertical slide in such cases.
