Align Elements

To align multiple elements, follow the steps below:

  1. Select a group of elements by drawing a selection box around them all. (Or select them one by one by holding down [Ctrl] and clicking on each element).
  2. Right-click on the element in the group to align others to. The context menu displays.
  3. Select the alignment function you require.

All selected elements are aligned to the one beneath the cursor.


You can also use the Diagram toolbar.


The first four buttons are used to align elements, and are made available when more than one element is selected in a diagram.

You can also select the Element | Alignment menu option.
