Answer

The Alignment buttons in Property Inspector help you to aligh two or more shapes in the Artboard.

  • Select multiple shapes by holding Shift and clicking them.
  • Click the Alignment button

 

Alignment types:

  • Align Top - will align selected shapes to top, so their top edges will be at the same horizontal level.
  • Align Middle (Vertically) - will align selected shapes to vertical center, so their horizontal axis will be at the same level.
  • Align Bottom - will align selected shapes to bottom, so their bottom edges will be at the same horizontal level.
  • Distribute horizontally - This option is enabled only when you select three or more shapes. After clicking it, the shapes will be distributed horizontally so the vertical space between them is equal - in other words, the distance between the two adjacent shapes will be the same.
  • Align Left - will align selected shapes to left, so their left edges will be at the same vertical level.
  • Align Middle (Horizontally) - will align selected shapes to horizontal center, so their vertical axis will be at the same level.
  • Align Right - will align selected shapes to right, so their right edges will be at the same vertical level.
  • Distribute vertically - This option is enabled only when you select three or more shapes. After clicking it, the shapes will be distributed vertically so the horizontal space between them is equal - in other words, the distance between the two adjacent shapes will be the same.
