Alignment handles

When enabled, alignment handles appear as you drag content, allowing you to place it precisely by lining it up in accordance with other content in your document. Alignment handles are especially useful for aligning the edges or centers of multiple selections to other page content or guides.

Show Alignment Handles To add alignment handles to a selection:
  1. With content selected, click on the Move Tool.
  2. From the context toolbar, select Show Alignment Handles. When selected, alignment handles are displayed at the center and edges of the selection. Hovering over these handles displays a floating guideline across the page. You can drag the handles to position the center or edges of the selection in line with this handle.
  3. Alignment handles can be used to align the selection to a given position on the spread. This position can be snapped for accuracy.
