I wish Sketch import preserved white space around layers/groups - either in the image itself or in the Framer layer dimensions. This would make it a lot easier to size tap targets around icons, for example.
That doesn't address the problem. Framer still won't preserve white space - ie. transparent layers in that group - when calculating imported layer size.
Agree on the pain. You have to make the bounds1% opaque for it to register as a target.
That's a clever trick that I didn't think of! I guess I could use that in the meantime. Shouldn't be necessary though, of course.
