Hi @Polyhex - we have a ticket for a bug where scaled child sizing is erroneously taken into account multiple times when automatic size is being used, it looks like that is what’s going on here. We will fix this, unfortunately there are a few other high priority issues we need to address prior to this.

Thank you for the bug report and we greatly appreciate your patience as we resolve these issues with Automatic Size.


Thank you for the response! I’m looking forward to using this feature to its fullest when it’s ready. Something like this is a godsend for UI development, and I’m really surprised at how user-friendly it is (even with its current hitchups).
