Relabel Button plugin for Sketch
The Relabel Button plug-in for Sketch.app prompts for a button's new label then applies the text, resizes the button background and repositions any other interior elements while maintaining the existing padding.
- Select any group or symbol that contains a text layer and one or more other layers (dividers, icons, drop-arrows, etc)
- Press Cmd+J and enter the new text for the button (or Cmd+Ctrl+J for right aligned resize)
That's it! The text and other objects will be updated maintaining the button's original padding and relative layout.
- nested groups not supported
- for symbols, elements SHOULD NOT be placed within a group
- for symbols, child elements should have Resizing set to Pin To Corner so they do not get shrunk/stretched
- see the Relabel Button Guidelines Sketch file for example buttons
