Chapter 8. Basic Tasks: Use Layout Tools > Align objects using the Align panel

Align objects using the Align panel

Previously, you used the Align panel to match objects to the size of the Stage. Now you’ll use the Align panel to center objects in relation to each other, and in relation to the Stage.

1.
With the Selection tool, click the text on the Stage that reads “Introducing the World’s First Hybrid 4WD.”

2.
Shift-click the second line of title text, “2004 Trio QZ,” to add it to the selection.

3.
In the Align panel (Window > Align), deselect To Stage and select Align Horizontal Center.

You’ve centered the two rows in relation to their horizontal axes. Next, you’ll group the title text to center both lines in relation to the Stage.

4.
With both lines of text still selected, select Modify > Group.

5.
In the Align panel, select To Stage, and then select Align Horizontal Center again.

With To Stage selected, the objects align in relation to the horizontal center of the Stage.

6.
Close the Align panel.
