Value Arithmetic on Auto Layout

Hello, guys. Hope you are well.

I use math on my designs at Figma everyday, specially the useful feature of inputting arithmetic math on the properties values. Example: Width = (80 * 2) + 8.

The things is, in Auto layout both Horizontal and Vertical padding, I can’t do the math by adding spaces between the values an operator. Example: “80 + 2”. Instead, it only works with the operator close to the values. Example: “80+2”.

This is not a big ideal in my everyday work, but i think it would be nice to have this way of inputting the values, as it already works with the properties Width, Height, and such :grin:

This is the screenshot, by the way

Hey Emmanuel, thanks for the feedback!

We’ll pass this onto our Auto Layout team for future consideration.
