Objects may be aligned relative to other. You can also align objects relative to page guides.

  1. Choose the Object tool (Object tool button) from the toolbar.
  2. Select the objects to be aligned.
  3. Choose one of the alignments available in the Object->Align-> submenu.
  4. The order in which you select the objects does not affect how they are aligned. Instead objects are left-aligned to the left-most object in the selection, right-aligned to the right-most, top-aligned to the top-most etc.
