  1. Why are the alignment tools not in sync? Scenario: Select two or more objects and from the Align dropdown list choose for instance align to “Last Selected” and click on Left alignment command. This will perfectly align as intended. (Refer to screenshot Alignment ‘A’) Separate the objects and reselect the objects then try to click on Left alignment command (Refer to screenshot Alignment ‘B’). Illogical alignment will take place. Rather than syncing with the command from the other Alignment tools, Objects will align to extremes i.e. align left will align to the object which has an extreme left side, align right, top, bottom, ditto. Align Centre and Align Middle will average the distance between the objects before settling for an alignment position. From the above indicated it’s clear that the two Alignment tools are detached from each other either by design or it was unintentional… Ordinarily when it comes to aligning artwork most users would choose not to go into the dropdown list to pick an alignment option. What if Serif were to sync the two? What if Serif were to extend Align functionality by introducing “Align / Distribute to Key Object”?
