Wrap elements in Auto Layout to multiple lines

I would love to see a full flex-layout implementation, including the ability to set grow, shrink and flex-basis values.

Adobe XD has something with a similar behaviour called Repeat Grid, which can be vertical and horizontal at the same time. If the Repeat Grid could be combined with Auto-Layout that would be amazing.

Repeat grid is a completely different behavior that what is specified here.

I believe that the official implementation of the UX of this plugin will solve everything.

Reproducing it with a hack is not realistic because there is a risk that some update will disintegrate the figma files.
I don’t understand why they defined the master component as a variants element, not only for the way Autolayout is implemented, but also for the variants feature.
It is reasonable to define the instance as a variants element and configure it with overrides

This plugin is godlike. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the tip.

I need to know how to achieve this :astonished:

+1 this feature would be amazing

Looking for this functionality as well. Native wrapping elements in auto-layout.

It would also mimic flexbox much better which should be the goal imo.

I believe this is essential behaviour. We really do need this.

+1 This feature is sorely needed. Plugins help in some cases, but you can’t really rely on them when building a design system with components.

+1 on this - needed ASAP

I think there would have to be two options for wrapping, one for columns and one for rows (like in css using flex-flow with column wrap and row wrap).

+1 badly needed
I have encountered twice already in just two weeks of using Figma. ≈

+1 for this feature. I hit this limitation all the time. The plugin mentioned above works well, but true flex-box functionality would be great. cheers!
