Automatic alignment distances/snapping

Recommended Posts

One feature I really like in Pixelmator (and I think Photoshop) is that it has the option to automatically guess that you're laying out elements in equal distances from each other. This would be a really nice feature for Affinity Photo and Designer.

 

Since I don't think I did a good job explaining it, I took a screenshot. (I was moving around the bottom ellipse; the cursor doesn't show up in the screenshot.) If that's still not sufficient, I can record a video.

Sorry to dredge up an old post (of my own!), but I figured it would be better than making a new one. I noticed that the 1.4 updates that just came out today have a line about "Live Stacks - Auto-aligned layers for creating composites". That wouldn't, by any chance, be what I'm looking for, would it? I'm guessing not, but I can dream ...

I'd also like such a feature very much.

(As in pages and keynote as well)

 

Although I think it belongs to snapping and not to stacks/ layer alignment.

Probably. I don't actually know what stacks is, but I saw "alignment" and got excited.
