 honor the First Selected setting inside this button?

It may seem knit picky to ask but a couple of clicks less adds to being more efficient.

This was discussed somewhere recently, and was… by design.

If I recall the explanation was that the individual buttons are only intended to be basic and quick, rather than offering every alternative.

As an alternative, have you tried the new alignment handles?

A shame that there is no keyboard or mouse shortcut to enable them, because they are pretty versatile.

I made the same suggestion on this Topic (I will update the images later). And I also included another one. Let's hope the improvements come in a future update.

Best regards!

Have not looked in to this.  Is there any documentation of this?  

 

I’m a creature of habit and i know that i will always choose my first object then the rest will align to it. Just don’t see the need for the extra clicks.

Only a tiny snippet at the very bottom of Aligning Objects.

https://affinity.help/designer/English.lproj/pages/ObjectControl/align.html

Turn the Alignment Handles on and have a play with a few objects selected.

Essentially it should be unimportant which order you select the objects, as you can drag the handle for the type of alignment you want to where ever you want the alignment to happen, with all the usual benefits of Affinity's snapping system.
