Sketch Redline Helper Symbols

If you still have to redline specs (like I do on occasion) and don’t want to use Sketch Measure, and still haven’t transitioned to Figma for some reason, you may find this collection of symbols I created helpful. The symbols are a set of redline helpers – both width/height measurement as well as area measurement. They use some relatively hacky Sketch methods to get the label backgrounds to expand automatically, but they work.

An example of the redline symbols in use.

Let me know if you find them useful!
