Skew Shapes For Easy Isometric Resizing
If you’re working with isometric illustrations in Figma, there is a great way to skew your shapes and help resize things more intuitively.
You can quickly generate a column layout by using snapping and distribution. For example, snap two squares to the sides of an artboard, then nudge each one inward slightly.
Remove Space Between Items
It’s possible to quickly remove all space between a series of objects. Select the objects in question, then go Main menu > Arrange > Pack Horizontal to get rid of all horizontal space.
You can get some help with aligning objects precisely by making sure the rulers are turned on (SHIFT + R) and then when you move a shape around you’ll see its width and height represented in the rulers.
To create masks really quickly in Figma, right-click an object and choose Use Mask. However, be aware that you need the masking object to be grouped in with the objects that you want to mask.
