Align

 

After selecting 2 or more props, the actions listed under the “Align” menu allow you to align the selected items horizontally or vertically.

 

Make Same Size

 

After selecting 2 or more props, the actions listed under the “Make Same Size” menu allow you to resize the selected items such that they all have the same width, height, or both.

 

Horizontal Spacing

 

After selecting 2 or more props, the actions listed under the “Horizontal Spacing” menu allow you to reposition the selected items such that they are equally spaced, or have no spacing between them at all.

 

Vertical Spacing

 

After selecting 2 or more props, the actions listed under the “Vertical Spacing” menu allow you to reposition the selected items such that they are equally spaced, or have no spacing between them at all.

 

Rotation

 

After selecting 1 or more props, the actions listed under the “Rotation” menu allow you to rotate the selected items back to their default orientation (0 degrees), to 90 degrees right, or 90 degrees left. Individual props can be rotated to any angle by dragging the rotation handle that is displayed when they are selected or using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl-LeftArrow and Ctrl-RightArrow. Ctrl-0 (control key + zero key) is a shortcut for resetting rotation back to the default orientation (0 degrees).

 

Reset

 

After selecting 1 or more props, the actions listed under the “Reset” menu allow you to reset the selected items back to their default position (centered), or default size (1/2 of the preview area), or both. Resetting the position is particularly useful because it is possible to drag items off the edge of the preview area. When this happens, select the prop from the item list, then choose Format > Reset > Position from the menu.
