Aligning Objects – Corel Draw Tutorial

Beatriz Mariniello

March, 2007

In this tutorial we will show you how to align objects in Corel Draw. Tutorial Includes project files.

First, we are going to align the left edge of these 3 Objects:

Choose the Pick Tool.
Marquee or shift select the objects you wish to align.
The alignment will be based on the last object you select, so choose the object that is in the correct position last.
In this example, I would like to align the left edge of all objects.

Go to: Arrange/Align and Distribute/Align and Distribut...

The Align and Distribute Window will pop up:
Now clik on Left (as I would like to align the left edge of all objects, as I wrote before).
You can preview your results by clicking the Preview button.
Click OK to apply the alignment

Note how all the objects are now in the same position and at the left part of the page:

Now lets align to: Page Center or Edge:

Select an object with the Pick Tool:

Choose Arrange, Align and Distribute from the Main Menu to open the Align and Distribute window. Decide which edges of the object you would like aligned to the center.
In this case I have chosen to align the vertical and horizontal center of the object to the center of the page.
Choose Center and Center for object alignment.
Choose Align to Center of Page in the Align To section. Preview and click OK.

Now the image is at the center of your page:

Now it's your turn to do it!!
