FitToContent Sketch Plugin (v1.2)

#Sketch #Plugins #Productivity #UIDesign

Sets the size of Symbols, Instances, Text Layers, Artboards or Groups to the size of their contents:

Works with:
👉 Artboards & Master Symbols
👉 Symbol Instances
👉 Groups
👉 Text Layers

✨ For Text Layers it resizes the text box to the correct height based on the line-height value.

📐 Applied to Symbol Instances it resets them to their original size (the Master Symbol’s size). If you are using Smart Layout and overrides it will "shrink to fit" the instance.

📂 For Groups it fixes an issue 🤕 where folders don’t match the size or position of their contents!

Enjoy!
