Align drawing objects

Align drawing objects

You can align objects (texts, marks, views and graphical objects) to the bottom, to the middle, to the left, to the center, to the right, and to the top. You can also position objects horizontally or vertically at equal distances from each other.

  1. Open a drawing.
  2. Select the objects that you want to align.
  3. Select the aligning command. The following commands are available on the Drawing tab:

    Align objects to the bottom

    Align objects to the top

    Align objects to the left

    Align objects to the right

    Align objects to the center

    Align objects to the middle

    Position objects to the vertical center at equal distances

    Position objects to the horizontal center at equal distances

  4. Pick a location for the alignment.

    If you have mixed objects selected, you will be asked to select which objects you want to align.

  5. If you selected one of the two commands that position objects to center at equal distances, type the distance in the displayed dialog box.

To create a row of objects, align them first to the top and then position them horizontally at equal distances from each other. You do not need to reselect the objects between the two commands.


Below is an example where marks have been aligned to left.
