Lesson 15. Creating Design Diagrams > Aligning and distributing objects

Aligning and distributing objects

Now that you've added a number of pages and objects to the design diagram, you'll use the Align palette to organize objects more precisely.

1.
Click to select the one of the three child pages of the Travel section, Cruises, Tours, and Adventures, and Ctrl-click (Windows) or Shift-click (Mac OS) to add the other two to the selection.

2.
Choose Window > Align to open the Align palette, or click the tab if the palette is collapsed.

3.
In the Align Objects section of the Align palette, click the Align to Top button () to align the tops of all pages.

4.
Select the Use Spacing option and enter 16 in the text box. (A square on the grid is 16 pixels by default.) Click the Distribute Spacing button to add one space between the objects.

You can align the siblings of the Customer Service section and any other objects in the design diagram in the same way.

5.
Click to select one of the three child pages of the Customer Service section, and Ctrl-click (Windows) or Shift-click (Mac OS) to add the other two pages to the selection. Then align the pages using the Align palette.

6.
Reposition any other objects in the design diagram based on your preferences or the example given in the 15End folder.

7.
Close the Align palette when you are finished.

8.
With the design diagram active, choose File > Save to save your work.
