The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Align and Distribute

A short video to hopefully help people get started with align and distribute in Inkscape. It is only basic as there is just too much to cover in one video. Experiment and ask questions if you need assistance.
The video can be viewed full screen size and it is not listed on You Tube yet. It can only be accessed from this post.

I've worked with Inkscape for two years and always had problems with getting A/D to work.  Today I zoomed in on your video screen and saw that you had "treat selections as group" unchecked.  I have no idea if that is the default as I have no recollection of checking it, but uncheck I did and I was able to use A/D with the straight line project.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.  I don't know why I never asked you about this a LOOOOONG time ago.

It is a good job you never asked me before as I never noticed the box "treat selection as group" and just had to open Inkscape to have a look for it, lol. Great to hear you solved your own problem and can now use align and distribute. I would be lost if I had to do it manually.
