align objects in designer

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody

new affinity designer user

am giving it a shot since i just purchased a mac

am a corel user and i was wondering if there is a shortcut to aling object like in corel

i use them all the time

 

in corel you select multiple object and pressing either  L R U D or E you can align them to the last selected object

 

any help will be appreciated

Thank you for your very fast response

i have another question, how do you make sure 2 object have 1 border perfectly aligned?

 

lets say 2 squares

 

i draw parts to later cut on cnc equipment, that is why that feature is so useful to me.

Hi eduonline

Make sure you have Snapping enabled (the red magnet icon on the main toolbar). Make sure that Snap to shape key points and Snap to object bounding boxes (menu View ▸ Snapping Manager...) are checked. There's also additional options there to align using midpoints as references, to guides etc.

 

Then drag one square until it touches the other, you should see smart guides appearing (green for horizontal, red for vertical) when their edges overlap.

Thanks you very much.

i have been learning a lot reading here in the forums and seeing youtube videos.

 

if its not too much trouble i have another question

 how can i snap to vectors

 

lets say i want to snap the corner of a square to a point in a circle

so far i have only been able to snap to the bounding box and the middles 

 

thank you very much for all your help.
