I’m not sure if I fully understand your issue, but maybe slices (Insert > Slice) is something you’re looking for?
Yikes, that’s a bug. We’ll address it in the following releases. The slice option still works as a workaround. I hope that helps in the meantime.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
Just on this, it is tedious to do the Slice process when exporting to Zeplin (as if you have a transparent container with an asset, it trims the transparent area of the container). Wouldn’t it make sense to allow exports to include this area unless a user decides to not?
