Auto Layout 3

Auto Layout 3 with a new look is here! Now we can control how objects are stretched and distributed within an Auto Layout frame, and set its padding values independently. This update brings Auto Layout even closer to Flexbox layouts in CSS, which is great for aligning code and design. The new UI took some folks by surprise, so take time to go through the links and learn how it works.

P.S. Today is the final day of the Black Friday & Cyber Monday sale of my book Designing in Figma. Right now, the ebook is available for only $15, which is almost 50% off! The book was already updated with Variants and other recent releases, and the next update will include the new Auto Layout. All future updates are free.
