Arranging entities

Discussion in 'AutoSketch' started by Andrew raffle, Dec 16, 2004.

  1. I was a claris draw user on a Mac for many years and have recently moved to
    Autosketch. One of the useful features I am used to is the ability to select
    several entities and align the centres,left edges, tops etc with each other
    or a reference point. Is there a way to do the same in Autosketch?

    Hi Andrew

    Try this:-
    - Select your entities
    - Right Click mouse
    - Click on Entities


    You can the edit many properties of the entities you have chosen.

    For example, if you selected several, or many lines, you and give them all a
    common value for x at starting point, or y, or the same at the finish point.

    The same for other entities - circles you can give common x or y values for
    their centrepoints, symbols the same.

    I hope this helps - I know it is not quite what you asked though.

    Under the "Edit" menu, there is a pull out called "Arrange" that allows you to allign to right, left, top, bottom, horizontal (mid), vertical (mid)

    Personally I have these assigned to a new toolbar for quick access.

    It doesn't matter what order the objects are in, or what order you select them: the alignment is to that selection. (So if you want to use this tool to allign one object to the right of another, make sure that it starts to the left of that object)

    I take it this is what you were looking for?

    Well done Gadget!

    I've recently upgraded to V9, and obviously not found all the new "goodies"
    yet!
