The topic of this chapter is alighment and distribution To align objects is to organize them into even rows or columns. To distribute objects is to space them apart equaldistant from each other. Illustrator handles both operations in very much the same way just about every other graphics and design program, with two exceptions. First if you want to align 1 object, we will call it A, to another object, B, without that second object B moving you need to make the key object by clicking on it a second time.
Which sounds fairly absurd, but actually works really well. Meanwhile, the program can be a little tricky when it comes to aligning text. Point text in particular presents Illustrator with some difficulty. Naturally the following movies tell the whole story, unless you think, align and distribute, what a boring story that'll be. Perish the thought! We're going to set up a checkerboard pattern and solve a word jumble puzzle. There is a story you can tell the grandkids for years to come.
