When I currently scale objects they always scale from the top left. Is there a way to set a different scaling starting point, like for example in Illustrator?

When you select the scale option on the top toolbar, you can select a scale reference point. Here's an example where the center is selected.

You can also scale with shortcuts like this :

(Quoting the official Sketch documentation)

So, to scale a layer so that it’s 50 pixels wide, from the right, you’d set its width to 50r.

  • Nice, but I usually scale from the side bar, is it possible to get that option there too? – Gerlof Leuhof Sep 11 at 11:25
  • @GerlofLeuhof I've added a link to the sketch documentation with another way to scale from the sidebar. Is this more useful? – Clafou Sep 11 at 11:30

    It's better thanks. I wish Sketch added that little symbol thingy to the side bar too – Gerlof Leuhof Sep 11 at 11:37
