I have a symbol button with an icon (fontawesome) and a label.

Both icon and label are set to pin-to-corner, but on resizing button instances only the first element(the icon) is fixed, whilst the second element (the label) floats.

I want both to pin-to-corner. Is this possible?

  • Have you tried grouping them and then pinning the group?

  • I have. Oddly the pin-to-corner then fails on the whole group - it feels like a bug

  • Have you tried converting the icon font to outlines? Resizing+fonts seems to be a real issue in Sketch.

  • The issue is not the fact the first element is an icon. In my example the first element DOES pick up on the pin-to-corner attribute (no mater if its a font or icon or outline). It's subsequent elements (in this case just text) that do not. i.e. you stretch the instance and the second element floats..

  • "Pin to corner" only pins to the nearest corner of each element. Most probably your text element is closer to the right corner and it pins there. Feb 8, 2017 at 16:05

Enter in the symbol select every element and set pin to corner.

Or you can use this plugin https://animaapp.github.io/Auto-Layout/
