CorelDraw 101: Objects

Align Objects

 

 

 

Select Objects
Choose the Pick Tool. Marquee or SHIFT select the objects you wish to align. There is no limit to the number of objects you select. The alignment will be based on the last object you select, so choose the object that is in the correct position last. In this example, I would like to align the left edge of all objects. The second bar is in the correct position. SHIFT select in this order: 1, 3, 4, 5 and finally 2.

 

 

 

 

 

Align Objects Vertically
Choose Arrange, Align and Distribute from the Main Menu to open the Align and Distribute window. Choose Left. You can preview your results by clicking the Preview button. If the aligned objects are hidden by the current window, you can click and drag on the blue window heading to move it out of the way. Click OK to apply the alignment.

 

 

 

 

 

Align Results
Note how all the bars are now in the same position as number 2.

 

 

 

 

 

Align Objects Horizontally
Choose the Pick Tool and select the objects you wish to align, choosing the one that is in the correct position last. In this sample bar number 1 is in the correct position, so I choose 2 and then 1. Choose Arrange, Align and Distribute from the Main Menu to open the Align and Distribute window. Choose Top. Preview your results by clicking Preview and moving the window out of the way if needed. Click OK to apply alignment.

 

 

 

 

 

Align to Page Center or Edge
Select an object with the Pick Tool. Choose Arrange, Align and Distribute from the Main Menu to open the Align and Distribute window. Decide which edges of the object you would like aligned to the center. In this case I have chosen to align the vertical and horizontal center of the object to the center of the page. Choose Center and Center for object alignment. Choose Align to Center of Page in the Align To section. Preview and click OK.
