Align Objects

The Layout | Arrange | Align commands are used to align selected objects relative to the bounding box surrounding the selected objects. The objects can be aligned both vertically and horizontally. Objects can also be distributed horizontally or distributed vertically. Enable the Align to Margins option to align objects to the page margins rather than the bounding box.
