Sketch provides a way to align layers to the artboard and to each other, but for some reason it does not provide a way to center or align layers with their parent group. Groupie fills in that gap.
Install with Sketch Runner
With Sketch Runner, just go to the
install command and search for
Groupie. Runner allows you to manage plugins and do much more to speed up your workflow in Sketch. Download Runner here.
- Go to the latest release page and download
- In Sketch, go to
Plugins > Manage Plugins..., click on the gear icon, and select
Show Plugins Folder.
- Un-zip the downloaded zip archive and then double-click the
Groupie.sketchpluginfile to install it.
Select one or more groupable layers and then select an item from the
Plugins > Groupie menu. All of the selected layers will be centered or aligned to their parent group in the chosen manner. This works even when selected layers are members of different groups.
Note: If a layer is not within a group, it is centered or aligned to its artboard.
For quick access, the following key equivalents are defined by default:
