Kris (no, not THAT Kris) asks…
Is there some sort of ruler that is built into this software? If not, is there some way to select a table and then specify X and Y coordinates so that I can top left align all of the diagrams that I’m creating. Currently, I am zooming in and switching between diagrams to top left align them but I feel that there has to be a better way to do this. Thanks in advance for the help.
Step One: Enable the Grid
Right-click, Show Grid.
This will give you, not a ruler, but a viewable set of coordinates, so it’s easier to align objects.
Maybe this is a little easier to see on the innerwebs:
This might still be tedious, so…
…let’s say I want to move up the top line of objects ‘up’ a few pixels. But I want to do it all at once, and I want to keep them at EXACTLY the same vertical level.
Multi-select, and then ctrl+drag+drop.
Kent to the Rescue!
Oracle ACE Director Kent Graziano reminds me to tell you about the Edit > Align feature.
Select your objects, and then go to the edit menu and select the appropriate align operation.
