Hi Anmar,

 

With your objects selected click on the Arrange button on the toolbar, now on the dropdown menu you have the different options available. If you would like to space them,  either Align Horizontally or vertically, you can also do this from Layers > Alignment.

 

If you wish to manually set the space, select Horizontally or Vertically icon,then uncheck Auto Distribute.

 

Regards

It should be displayed in the space between the Transforms (flip/rotate) toolbar and the Snapping toolbar. Go to the View menu, choose 'Customize Toolbar...' and drag the Arrange flyout button from there.

As Alfred says, you need to use the Customize Toolbar option if you do not have an Arrange button on your Toolbar & want one to appear there. In the AD 1.5.x version for Mac you can choose among the separate button sets for the align, distribute, & spacing functions, and the multi-purpose Arrange button with the dropdown menu, as shown below:

Note also that there is a scrollbar on the right which will reveal even more items available for customizing your Toolbar.
