SketchDistributor

Sketch plugin that distributes selected objects vertically or horizontally with a specified spacing.

Like so:

Distribution in action

Installation

I recommend using Sketch Toolbox, but you can also download and unpack the zip archive and then open Distributor.sketchplugin, Sketch will open it up and install the plugin for you.

How-to

You select the objects you want to distribute, then ask Distributor to do it. There are two ”modes”:

  1. Distribute... (Shift + Control + D) brings up a dialog box. You choose direction (vertically or horizontally) and spacing (in pixels).
  2. Distribute again (Shift + Control + A) applies the last used distribution settings on the selected objects.

Note that you can use negative spacing to get overlap. Like so (spacing: -14): Tabs distributed -14px
