Alignment

Question

While answering another question I had, the alignment icon was pointed out to me....I had missed it.

 

This makes me wonder about another question concerning alignment. Is there something else I'm missing that would show placements of items on the menu? With the three menu buttons that I put on my newest project, I eye-balled their spacing, but it would be nice if there was something that would show where I actually am....a grid line, location points, or something. I used the alignment tool to get the tops of the buttons aligned, but just guessed on the spacing. My goal was to have the buttons equally spaced apart and horizontally centered, plus I have another picture and unlinked text—some placement grids or something would have been nice to use.

 

Thanks~there is so much to learn in EMC9, but I've gotten some great tips while browsing through the Community. I appreciate that most of the responders are very patient and don't talk down to the newest of the newbies~I've done a lot of graphics work (amateur!), but a new program can throw a few challenges :o

There is a Snap Objects to Grid icon at the top of the preview screen in MyDVD, but I haven't used it and am not sure that it will snap your menu buttons to the grid, but give it a try.

 

Thanks~I did use the snap to grid icon and it helped line things up, but just to the nearest snap-point. It didn't really help with spacing. In fact, I ended out turning it off since it made my middle button look off-center.

 

It seems like there is always one thing missing from a program....unfortunately we all have a different "important-to-us" feature that is missing B) I guess there is no perfect program.

 

Just thought I'd check to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious. Thanks for answering~

Well, it was worth a shot, anyway.
