Let’s Explore v4 – Transform Panel – Align

Today we are exploring the Transform Panel – Align Tab.

This is a very important and useful panel when you are creating designs & one I use almost every time I open the Silhouette software.

The Transform Panel is on the right side of Silhouette Studio v4 and the first tab on this panel is the Align Tab.

Let’s take a look at the entire Align tab.

  1. Center – This icon  Center to Page icon copy is the Center to Page and it will center the design in relation to the Page Size you have set under the Page Setup Panel – Page Size. Here I have resized my design (Softball Mom by SM Designs) and then hit the Center to Page icon and it centered that to my 12″ x 12″ page size.Center to Page demoThen you have the Center multiple objects copyCenter multiple objects icon. When multiple objects are selected, this will center those objects to each other. If I draw a circle and select both objects, click on the center multiple objects, it will center those designsCenter multiple objects demo
  2. Horizontal – There are 3 options here: (A) left edge, (B) center, (C) right edge.Horizontal Alignments copy

  4. Horizontal Spacing – With multiple objects selected (more than 3), this will space those objects equal distance apart horizontally.Horizontal spacing copy
  5. Vertical Spacing – With multiple objects selected (more than 3), this will space those objects equal distances apart vertically.Vertical spacing copy

And there you have the details of the Align tab in the Transform Panel of Silhouette Studio v4.
Now, there is no need to eye-ball the spacing or alignment, let the software do the work for you.

You can also find the same icon in the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) at the top when more than one object is selected.
