Aligning layers

Aligning layers

Use the layer alignment commands to align one or more layers with a border of the last layer selected.

When you align layers, child layers that aren’t selected may move because their parent layer is selected and moved. To prevent this, don’t use nested layers.

To align two or more layers:

  1. In the Design view, select the layer (see Selecting layers).
  2. Select Modify > Arrange, and then select an alignment option.

    For example, if you select Top, all of the layers move so that their top borders are in the same vertical position as the top border of the last selected layer (highlighted in black).
