Align and Distribute Shapes

Align and distribute the bounding boxes of Shapes. You can align/distribute based on either the selection or the Composition.

To align or distribute Shapes to other Shapes simply select more than one Shape and choose from the options below.

Holding the alt key while clicking the options below will align or distribute Shapes to the Composition.

If you only have one Shape selected then the Alignment options will default to being based on Composition.
