Objects may be aligned relative to others. You can also align objects relative to page guides.

  1. Choose the Object tool from the toolbar.
  2. Select the objects to be aligned.
  3. Choose one of the alignments available in the Object > Align submenu.
  4. The order in which you select the objects does not affect how they are aligned. Instead, objects are left-aligned to the left-most object in the selection, right-aligned to the right-most, top-aligned to the top-most, etc.

Displaying the Alignment Toolbar

All alignment and distribute functions are available in the Object Alignment toolbar.

To show this toolbar, choose View > Toolbars > Object Alignment.

  • Aligning text blocks does not affect the paragraph alignment (justification) within the text blocks.
