I'm having serious performance issues because auf Paddy, so I won't/cannot use it for the time being.
Same. Had to uninstall it. It kept freezing my Sketch and causing it to crash. Had to uninstall it (for now!)
Same here. I was stoked about it too. It only worked for me sometimes and then my cpu went outta control until I disabled it.
Edit: I see there was a repo update 20 hours ago, maybe the bugs have been fixed. Gonna check it out.
Yeahhh I’ll never stop using it. Dare I say... epic?? The padding and spacing features are amazing and work perfectly. Completely accelerated my workflow.
Don't care about people who says that this link have already been posted. Not everyone have seen this amazing plugin. Thank you a lot for the share for this time saving wonder ;)
Agree. I've only used it for a couple of weeks and I can't imagine my workflow without out it. Sketch 49 broke it, but the developer made sure to update it ASAP. If I would have missed this being shared here weeks ago, I would have never known about it. So share away...
I've been using this for dynamic width buttons. Works great.
It's been posted before. Twice.
Unfortunately, it seems like it doesn't support nested symbols yet: https://github.com/DWilliames/paddy-sketch-plugin/issues/3
Other than that, it's a pretty great plugin that could replace the Relabel Button and Anima Auto Layout plugins.
Really liking this. One thing, and maybe I'm missing it, but it would be nice if it could remove the brackets and containing info from the filename upon export.
I was loving the plugin until it started to crash / open a million pop ups on larger files asking to re-calculate margins. Sadly I had to uninstall it, but I'll try again in the future :)
I recently wrote about how to use Paddy ... since then he has made some pretty awesome improvements and is continuing to do so ... https://medium.com/@gradykelly/paddy-buttons-a-really-simple-solution-to-a-problem-we-all-have-with-those-little-rascals-ca0eceee1766
I love Paddy. And it has quickly become a valuable tool for me.
There are some serious issues in the current version. Not necessarily because of the plugin, but because of a lot of changes that were done to Sketch in the last update.
Hopefully Sketch will make it possible to have the nested symbols work with Paddy as well. Another feature I would love to have is when setting max-width around a text, to have the text change from fluid to fixed width when it becomes wider than the max-width (currently it doesn't, which means the container respects the max-width but the text doesn't).
Automated padding, spacing and alignment for your Sketch layers
" There are some similar plugins out there that do some of the features of this plugin, but none of them do all of it in the simple way I wanted them to.
Automatic: Most other plugins require a keyboard shortcut for them to be applied, or re-applied. This is all done automatically as you manipulate your layers; simply deselect everything, and will be updated. Visible properties: It's easy to scan your layer list to see what padding / spacing is applied to your layers and groups; without the need to select them individually. This is because all the properties are set via the layer's name. No special data manipulation: This simply resizes and moves your layers to optimal positions – it doesn't turn your groups into a special 'Stack group' or something; so other people or programs such as Zeplin, can read the Sketch file perfectly fine, without the need for this plugin too. Lightweight: It just does a couple of core things – it's not bloated with a bunch of unused features. "
This is great! I've been using Modulizer plugin for quite a while now, but having the object auto-adjust the size after the content changes is such a nice addition and timesaver. Thanks Yann!
