    What is doesn't explain is that it creates a layer group whose contents are a physical line, box, text, etc which it places above the rest of the canvas/layers.

    Whereas you can just you can just hold Alt to measure things, this creates a permanent overlay which for exporting to developers is fantastic.

      Great plugin and thanks Ale for posting this! One question: In this draw seems as this plugin can also measure the margin between the circle and the font, how is this possible??

        I'm assuming that was simply the result of drawing a rectangle between the circle and the font, measuring it, and then removing the rectangle.

        However, measuring distance between elements doesn't seem that hard to implement, and given the beauty of open source, probably someone will implement that soon : )

        Update: there's already a request to add the feature : )

    I would love if it also was able to measure margins.

    But this is a really great plugin!

      I guess if you create a rectangle the same dimensions as the margin, then use this plugin it will yield the result you want.

      A little bit of extra leg work, but might be worth it.

      Yes, especially since it seemingly shows margin being measured in the demo screenshot.

    Wow, this is so nice! Plus it converts px to dp, along with supporting the Android screen sizes, which is perfect when you're handing over specs to Android developers. Bravo!

      @cristina b. How did you get it to work? I installed the plugin and see it in my Sketch plugins. When I select an object and try to use it, nothing happens. What am i missing?

      You have to export everything within the .zip, not just the initial 1-5 .sketch plugin files.

    For someone who is spending a lot of time specifying an app UI the "old fashioned way", this makes me sad :(
