Align Layers

Remapped Dan Eden's "Align Layers" shortcuts in Sketch to be more intuitive for me. This version uses ^ and + the arrow keys to quickly align objects and removes the need to use the shift key. Full commands below:

  • ^ ⌘ ← align left
  • ^ ⌘ → align right
  • ^ ⌘ ↑ align top
  • ^ ⌘ ↓ align bottom
  • ^ ⌘ . align vertical (center)
  • ^ ⌘ / align horizontal (middle)

I made a YouTube video that explains its usefulness and such...

  1. Download the plugin repository
  2. Double-click the .sketchplugin file
  3. In Sketch, run the plugin with one of the shortcuts.

Once I learn more about creating Sketch Plugins, I'll update this plugin to include even more useful quick keys...

Mad props to Dan Eden for the original plugin.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
