Allow for "align-locking" objects vertically or horizontally to other objects when dragging

Lukas Eder 9 years ago updated 9 years ago 3

When I drag an object, I often want to align it vertically / horizontally with other objects. MS Powerpoint, for instance, is smart enough to discover that intent, and it displays a red line to visualize the fact that I'm about to vertically / horizontally align this object with another one.

This is obviously a completely opt-in feature, and it is active only in the vicinity of around 5 pixels with the other object (and it can be avoided by pressing shift or alt, I believe).


Thank you Lukas. I'm going to force this idea instead of "snap to grid" :)


Oh, "snap to grid" is useful as well. I think they're both complementary...
