Snapping asset center to guide (Photo)

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I am looking for a very simple, but essential feature and since I haven't been able to find it on my own, I was hoping you might be able to help me. 

Basically, what I am trying to do is align the center of either the vertical or the horizontal edge of an asset with a guide I previously created. I know how to snap the edges to guides, but I haven't found a way to snap the mid-point to a guide. I've attached a screenshot to visualize what I mean.




I really hope you can help me with this.


Have a great day!

If you go View > Snapping Manager and select "Enable Snapping" you can set all sorts of options to align objects to guides and each other. Although, it should do what you want just by enabling snapping.

You have to enable "Include bounding box mid points" in the snapping options.
