Set width and Height with percentages for the layout grid
Hi! Developers often ask me to define margins and columns in percentage for responsive websites. New XD update give us good control of the grid layout but it might be usefull to set up with percentage instead of pixels.

Hey Adobe team,
As a developer, I see this as a critical feature. I'm not sure why Adobe Xd won't let us specify the measurement.
I'm trying to develope resposive design both windows and mobiles devices. I could not have option to provide in percentages for the layouts. Please help me out.
I need to:
- set the a grid width in px
- center the grid on the page (and still have the possibility to do otherwise)
- choose the number of columns
- set a gutter width 0-x
--> The column width will be calculated (percentage or with decimal points)
Why on earth has this not been solved yet? I dont get it. My developers are about to jump ship over this issue.

Hi there! In the spec mode, developers miss being able to visualize margins and padding with percentage values instead of pixel units.
The Zeplin tool enables this option if you press and hold the ALT key, for example. And you can also select percentage units as the default unit.
