Repeat grid gutter working with dynamic text size
Text comes in 2 modes: line or bloc. The particularity of the line mode is that the size is dynamic.
When creating a Repeat grid with a text line, it would be uber cool that if we change the replicas content, the gutter applies on the new text width, which is best for classic inline items (menu, breadcrumb, …).
For now, the gutter adapts to the largest item.
Three Years now and still no solution for this? Please have a look at this, it's bothering me since my first project with XD.

Am I to understand there's still no solution for this?
This is a massive shortcoming in a design tool.
I'm trying to put together a desktop site menu and the spacing is all wrong

This is really a feature requirement for repeat grid! If I'm making a nav bar, the spacing is going to be really weird, because it's all just text. So, if one nav tab says "Home" and the other says "About Us", the spacing is going to act like "Home" is the same length as "About Us". Therefore, the spacing will look really weird, unprofessional and not correct. There needs to be an option for this.
This might be a problem when you have multiple rows and columns however, there should be an option for this.
I came across a weird behaviour of the repeat grid tool.
When I put an symbol in a repeat grid and edit the text in the symbol, the repeat grid does not register the new length of the text string and still keeps the old length when adjusting the spacing ect.
