Aligning elements on your printed circuit layout is the process of making the top, bottom, left or right edges of multiple objects all fall in line. For example you might want to align several pads to have their centers positioned on the same vertical or horizontal line.

alt To align objects:
  1. Select the objects.
  2. Choose Edit | Align and select the alignment (Left, Right, Top or Bottom).

alt You can align objects by Reference Points or by Edges by enabling the Edit | Align | By Reference Points or Edit | Align | By Edges options. If you choose to align by Reference Points, the objects will be aligned by their reference points - usually their centers. If you prefer to align by Edges, the objects will be aligned by their Left, Right, Top or Bottom edge.
