Arrange objects

Align

Menu equivalents under Modify > Align

Align options will move all selected objects to align with one of the selected elements acting as a guideline for the others. For example, if you choose Align left, all objects will move to be aligned with the left-most object’s edge on the selection. The object that acts as a guideline does not move. If there are one or more locked objects selected they will be used as a “key object(s)”. And alignment will be relative to their boundaries.

If only one object is selected, the Align function uses the page limits as the alignment guide.

Align Left

Aligns all selected objects to the left side of the left-most object (left side of the selection bounding box)

 

Note: If there is a locked object selected it will be used as a “key object” and all others will be aligned to left part of the locked object. If there are several locked objects selected, the alignment will use the left side of the left-most locked object.

 

Align Center

Aligns all selected objects to the center of the selection bounding box.

Align Right

Aligns all selected objects to the right side of the right-most object (right side of the selection bounding box) 

Align Top

Aligns all selected objects to the top side of the top-most object (top side of the selection bounding box)

Align Middle

Aligns all selected objects to the middle of the selection bounding box

Align Bottom

Aligns all selected objects to the bottom side of the bottom-most object (bottom side of the selection bounding box)

Same width & height

Modify > Align > Same Width or Modify > Align > Same Height

Makes selected objects all the same width or the same height (the width/height of the selection bounding box)
