Nudge Resize Sketch Plugin
Sketch Plugin to quickly resize the width and height of a layer through easy keyboard shortcuts.
Similar to holding 'alt' whilst resizing with the mouse; 'Nudge Resize' works the same.
⌥ alt + → = Expand layer size horizontally
⌥ alt + ← = Condense layer size horizontally
⌥ alt + ↓ = Expand layer size vertically
⌥ alt + ↑ = Condense layer size vertically
Note: Add ⇧ Shift to increase the nudge size
The amount the layer resizes by is based on the user's nudge size:
- default = 1
- default large (shift) = 10
This means that if you change your settings with nudg.it, it will respect this preference.
Why make this plugin?
Currently, you can resize a layer by using 'cmd + arrow' or 'cmd + shift + arrow', but that resizes with a fixed top, and a fixed left side — what about resizing from the centre of the layer. I would often resize a layer with these commands, then move the layer to try and re-centre the layer where it was. This plugin/script is a real time saver — I use it every day without fail.
