Choose Window | Palettes | Align...
You can apply alignment and distribution options to vector objects, grouped objects, paint objects, and text objects. You can align and distribute objects in separate or combined operations. As the reference point for alignment and distribution, you can choose points on the objects or the document.
If one of the objects you select for alignment is locked, other objects align relative to it. When distributing objects, Canvas X Draw may place all objects relative to the option selected in the Distribute to menu.
Select this option to ignore the stroke of the objects when aligning or distributing objects. Deselect the option to use the outside edge of objects’ strokes.
This option is most applicable to distribution. When you select Arrange Z-Order, the command Arrange | Bring to Front is performed on each object. In the end, the objects are stacked on top of each other in the same order in which they were distributed. Results are most notable when the operation results in overlapping objects. Only available when either horizontal or vertical alignment/distribution is selected. Both cannot be selected. Horizontal and vertical sorting may differ and the result of rearranging would then not be clearly defined.

When applying either horizontal or vertical edge-to-edge alignment, the order of the aligned objects depends on the order in which the objects were created; i.e., the object furthest to the left or at the very top in an edge-to-edge alignment was created first. Both Edge to Edge options have the same effect. They align all the remaining objects edge to edge with the key selection object.
