You can use object alignment to align objects to an arbitrary path, line, or point, or to objects that you specify.Also, you can use object alignment to align objects in two dimensions—vertically and horizontally.The objective of aligning is to match up parts of two or more objects. For example, you can align a cylindrical top part of one object with a cylindrical bottom part of another. You can use an offset option to specify a precise amount of offset—for example, 5. You can specify a shift distance that you can apply to all parts of the alignment.And with the alignment feature, you can make the whole alignment independent of the offset.Use object alignment to place arbitrary objects in a precise location.Image courtesy of Ben BrantnerSee also:Take advantage of the new options that come with alignmentWith object alignment, you have more flexibility than ever before when you place objects. This feature includes many new options that give you the freedom to create designs with complex alignments.You can align objects horizontally or vertically, 2be273e24d
