Question on how to create a responsive button

Hi all, I’m pretty new to Sketch (I previously used Figma) and I cannot figure out how to make a responsive button with responsive padding on all sides. I found that I’m only able to keep the padding consistent either horizontally or vertically. My process is the following: text on top of rectangle, group them, then make them a symbol. Then once it’s a symbol, I set layout to be horizontal and center or vertical and center, but not both. I’m also unable to specify the dimensions for padding without manually positionning. Please help!

As far as I know, this is not possible. Unfortunately.

Hi there @nkhuu,

Welcome to the Forum! It’s great to have you here!

There are some differences (as expected) between how Figma and Sketch work, but I think we can get pretty close when it comes to responsive components. Yes, you need to set paddings manually but Smart Layout will keep them consistent once you’ve set them.

I have a question though. When it comes to responsive components, you can get padding consistency too, but since you mentioned a button, I wanted to ask if you can share some screenshots of what you want to build.

Buttons normally only need to grow horizontally. Cards on the other hand, are a great example of a responsive component (and those can be made in Sketch!) For instance, this card below is the same component using Smart Layout, and it adapts to different widths

You can share your screenshot right here or if you prefer, to our support email:
