Aligning components in the drawing area

Did you know that....

...you can align groups of components in the drawing area?

If you would like to position several components on a line, for example a number of chairs along an imaginary or acual wall, you can do this using one of the align options.

Do as follows to align components in the drawing area:

  1. Group the components you wish to align by holding the Ctrl key and click the components or by using the Select Rectangle tool.    
  2. Click the Arrange menu and choose Align/Distribute. The dialog Align/Distribute appears (see Figure 1).  
  3. Select the desired alternative within the Align field.
