Chapter 8. More Editing Commands > Align: Move and Rotate in One Command

Align: Move and Rotate in One Command

The Align command is one of the more dynamic editing commands at your disposal. Because this command can move, rotate, and scale in one operation, you can do some very creative editing and save some time as well. Before using this command, you should apply some thought as to how the selected objects will be aligned. When you start to use the Align command regularly, you'll naturally start to look for ways to apply it. The Align command is also one of those commands that can act on three-dimensional features as well as two-dimensional objects.

This command is available from either the Modify pull-down menu under 3D Operation, or by typing AL at the command line. While using this command, you will be prompted for three types of points: source, destination, and alignment. Source points are points on the object you want to align, destination points are points on the object you want to align to, and alignment points are points that define how the objects will be scaled.
