Objects can be distributed or spaced evenly on the page using the Alignment commands.
Distribution and spacing
The distribution of objects involves setting an even distance between specific points on objects.
The spacing of objects ensures there is an equal distance between the edges of each selected object.
The following settings can be adjusted from the Alignment pop-up panel. Distribution is always carried out within the selection bounds:
Space Horizontally—evenly distributes the selected objects horizontally.
Space Vertically—evenly distributes the selected objects vertically.
Auto Distribute—when selected (default), the objects are distributed evenly within the selection bounds. If this option is off, a specified distance between objects can be set adjacent to the Auto Distribute option.
To distribute or space objects:
Select multiple objects.
Do one of the following:
On the Toolbar, click Alignment, set your options from the pop-up panel, and then click Done.
On the Toolbar, click Alignment, set your options from the pop-up panel, and then click OK.
From the Layer menu's Alignment submenu, select a Space or Distribute option.
