Distribute spacing in Illustrator is such a simple yet effective command. Dragging objects around the artboard and aligning them with the mouse is fine in some situations. But when it comes to working with smaller objects it's faster and more efficient to use distribute spacing. Don't skip this amazing command for XD.

I'm not sure if this is already in it, because I can't find it anywhere. But basically I have 5 vertical lines for example and 5 text boxes all vary in width. Say I distribute them both evenly on the same max-width of 250px, They don't align. That is because the distribution is the same in the middle of all of them *(which is better for UI design, but maybe it can be a variable)

PLEASE this is an absolute must

Please add Align > Distribute spacing in XD like in Illustrator.

Great idea. Illustrator and InDesign did it right ;)

I'd like to piggy back off this request and suggest an automatic redistribution of space between multiple items in a group.
Example: A toolbar has 4 items, a change request suggests a new item to be added. If the toolbar is a group or symbol, adding a new symbol adjust spacing distributed space between all items inside that initial group/symbol.
There might be a toggle that determines if the items are distributed equally from edge to edge of the container, or between fixed elements within that container.
