How to distribute objects evenly vertically/horizontally? [A: Alignment Inspector] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Does anyone know how to distribute objects in Omnigraffle? I want to distribute 4 identical objects vertically. i position the first one near the top of the canvas and the fourth one near the bottom with items #2 and 3 between. I expect the system to position items #2 and 3 so that they are evenly distributed between where I've postioned the top item and the bottom item. This is how it would work in any other layout/drawing program with which I'm familiar.
The only distribution-type command I can find is "Make Centered Column" under the Arrange menu. This seems to center the 4 objects OK, but it repositions the bottom item vertically (which I don't want) and seems to have its own private logic about positioning the other items vertically - they are certainly not evenly spaced as I would expect.

Am I missing something?
