[Bug]Coordinates inside a component is not relative

Expected behaviour:

When you create a new component the coordinates of any object inside that component have to be relative to the component anchor point (top left) since constraints are relative.

Actual behaviour:

The coordinates of any object inside a component are relative to the artboard which makes the data inconsistent with constraints.

Use cases, problems and implications:

  1. Impossible to create consistent padding\margins across multiple components.
  2. Impossible to maintain and check the spacing, paddings and margins across new elements in the design system (for ex. created by junior/mid designers)
  3. Impossible to automate design testing during dev ops handoff phase

Solution:

Make coordinates relative to the parent components' anchor point.
