Aligning objects

Your layout will be easier to read and look more professional if you vertically or horizontally align fields, labels, and groups of fields as much as possible.

To align objects:

1.
Switch to Layout mode ( in Windows, on the Mac), then select the objects you want to align by holding down and clicking on them with your cursor.

2.
Choose Arrange > Set Alignment or use your keyboard: in Windows, on the Mac (Figure 11.14).

Figure 11.14. To align selected objects, choose Arrange > Set Alignment.


3.
When the Set Alignment dialog box appears, you can control the top-to-bottom and the left-to-right alignment of the selected objects (Figure 11.15). The Sample area in the window's lower-left corner lets you see the effect of each combination.

Figure 11.15. Use the Set Alignment dialog box to control the top-to-bottom and left-to-right relationships among several selected objects. The lower-left panel displays a sample of the chosen setting.


4.
When you're satisfied with the alignment, click OK.
