Align woes

Post by debenriver » Wed Nov 27, 2019 11:32 pm

Hi Eric

Whatever I do I cannot make the keyboard shortcuts for Align >> Left/Right/Top/Bottom work reliably. I have tried changing the shortcuts (in System Preferences) from the standard ⌘→ etc to something else – like ⌃L, ⌃R etc. but to no avail.

It often just doesn't work. When that happens, with the standard shortcuts, at first the selected objects all move (as per Snap in Preferences). With my changed shortcuts nothing happens.

If I go to the actual menu and do an align, then after that the shortcut (standard or my changed shortcut) will work – not all of them, just the one I have used. To make them all work you have to do each one via the menu first. And if I leave the drawing for a while and then come back to it, often it won't.

Very odd .... :D

Cheers -- George

Bonjour George,

I will try that to see if I can do something.
