Resize (not scale) multiple layers at once via shortcut
Sketch Resize is a plugin made for Sketch. It provides unproportional, unconstrained resize for multiple selected layer. It's triggered via shortcut, and doesn't require to reach nor focus the inspector panel.
Given a selection containing multiple layers, Resize tries to avoid the following limitations:
- The scale layers feature (
cmd+k) affects width, height, and some other properties at once, proportionally
- After focusing the inspector panel via shortcut (
alt+tab), in order to resize anything we need to tab twice, enter the width, tab once, enter the height, blur the panel (or press enter)
- The inspector panel could be very far away from the current position of the mouse cursor
- Nudging and dragging could be slow, or imprecise
