Aligning Shapes

Each shape may be aligned to the grid. To align a shape to the grid, select it and click the Align to Grid button on the Layout toolbar.

Several shapes can be aligned in a column or in a row.

  • To align in a row, select shapes and click the Align Tops, Align Middles, or Align Bottoms button on the Layout toolbar to align the shapes by their top, center, or bottom of the primary selection respectively. Their horizontal position remains unchanged.
  • To align in a column, select shapes and click the Align Rights, Align Lefts, or Align Centers button to align the shapes by their right side, left side, or center of the primary selection respectively. Their vertical position remains unchanged.

You may also use corresponding commands of the Align sub menu of the Layout menu.
