Dynamic Reposition

Make it easy to resize an object without having to manually move all the content to keep the margins

How to img

How to install it

First of all you need to have Sketch 3 installed.

Use Sketch Toolbox (recommended)

Use Sketch Toolbox to search for Dynamic Reposition and click install.

Install manually

  1. Download the latest release and open it
  2. Navigate the Sketch menu bar to Plugins ▸ Reveal Plugins Folder
  3. Place the directory into the revealed plugins directory

How to use the plugin

  1. Select a layer you want to use as an background and rename it to "background".
  2. Give all the other layers/groups inside of the same group margin properties (see below).
  3. Select the main group.
  4. Use the plugin by pressing cmd p or select plugins ▸ Dynamic reposition

The shortcut can easily be changed by changing the first row in the plugin

You'll need a background. You can either create a layer or a group called "background" or it will take the largest layer in the group and use it as the background.

Set properties

You set the margin in the name of the layer. For instance, My button t:10:l:50 will position the button top: 10px and left: 50px.

You can set properties for:

  • top t: or top:
  • right r: or right:
  • bottom b: or bottom:
  • left l: or left:

By not setting any properties for top or bottom it will be placed in the middle of the background. If you don't set any properties for left and right it will be centered.

By setting properties for both top and bottom or/and left and right the object will be stretched out to keep the right distance to the background. Make sure to not have locked proportions otherwise it wont work as it is supposed to. To have more control over resizing objects make sure to try out my other plugin, Sketch Resize

You can set size properties for:

  • width w: or width:
  • height h: or height:
  • fontSize fs: or fontSize:

Make sure to seperate each property with a semicolon :
