distribute within selection

Recommended Posts

Distributing objects should work like alignment.


So, if there are four boxes within a larger box, and that larger box is selected, use the larger box as a container and distribute the smaller objects evenly within the larger box. (Assuming "selection bounds" is chosen in the align dialog) This is what happens with the align command. Distribute would simply use the same logic.


This is needed frequently.  For instance, if you're making a website mockup and want navbar items distributed within your navbar. Or a host of other applications.


Currently the way to accomplish it involves creating objects, placing them at the boundaries, selecting everything, distributing, then de-selecting the middle objects, then deleting the outside "boundary" objects. It seems a bit hack-ey.
