Static Sketch plugin demo

It’s my recent addition to Sketch plugin family – Sketch plugin to generate custom decimal number entries and append specific characters en masse. I’ve been banging my head trying to update hundreds of text entries in Sketch app at a time and needed a plugin to quickly override it with a click of a button.

Specifically, you’ll be able to quickly select text layers and within a moment generate a decimal, custom number values, and more. You can also add prefix/suffix of currency, percentages, degree types, etc.
