Chapter 7. Drawing and Modifying Objects > Aligning or Distributing Objects

Aligning or Distributing Objects

When you work with two or more similar objects, you need to ensure that they look good on the page. Objects often look best when you align them in relation to each other. For example, you can align three objects so that the tops of all three objects line up along an invisible line. Other times, you may want to distribute objects evenly across an area. FrontPage includes commands to distribute your items horizontally and vertically, and you can specify whether you want to distribute objects in their currently occupied space or across the entire page.

Align or Distribute Objects

Click the View menu, click Page, and then open the Web page you want to use.

Press and hold Shift while you click the objects that you want to align.

Click Draw on the Drawing toolbar, and then point to Align Or Distribute.

Click the alignment or distribution option you want.

  • Align Left. Lines up the left edges of the selected objects.

  • Align Center. Lines up the centers of the selected objects.

  • Align Right. Lines up the right edges of the selected objects.

  • Align Top. Lines up the top edges of the selected objects.

  • Align Middle. Lines up horizontally the middles of the selected objects.

  • Align Bottom. Lines up the bottom edges of the selected objects.

  • Distribute Horizontally. Evenly distribute the objects horizontally.

  • Distribute Vertically. Evenly distribute the objects vertically.
