Chapter 23. Precision Tools

Chapter 23. Precision Tools

There are many tools you can use to position or move objects with exact precision. In this chapter you will learn how to use rulers, guides, and grids to align and position objects; move an object a specified distance via the Move dialog box; use the Measure tool to calculate distances between objects; use the Transform palette to move, scale, rotate, or shear objects; and use the Align palette to align or distribute objects.

Smart Guides are precision tools, too, but they're so helpful and so easy to use, we discussed them early in the book (see pages 88–89, 97, and 170). The Transform Each command is discussed on page 105, Transform Effect on page 106.
