Learn how to draw the front placket and use align and distribute to add buttons.
- [Instructor] Before we move on to the placket,…I want to show you how align and distribute work.…You can find the align panel by going up to…window in the drop down menu,…and clicking on align.…And it looks like this.…The top row are align commands…and the bottom row are distribute's.…We're going to select all the objects…that we want to align,…and then I'm going to click on align center…and you can see they all jump to center.…If I click on distribute just beneath it,…they will evenly distribute themselves between…the top and bottom object.…
This is really handy for doing buttons,…and it's certainly easier than hand drawing them…and trying to keep them evenly spaced.…So, let's back up a little bit…and show you one other thing,…what if I wanted these squares to align…to the red square, rather than jump to…the center of the whole group?…Well, then I have to define the red square…as a key object.…Let me go back to the black arrow,…I'm going to select all of them…and then I'm going to click once on the red square.…
