G R A P H I C S - P R O. C O M 2 0 2 1 J U L Y G R A P H I C S P R O 2 3 duplicated my original nine objects, grouped them, and drug them below and center of the previous eight. This process was repeated several times to achieve the result depicted in Figure 5. Returning to Figure 4, the Distribute feature offers eight options. I admit that I was a bit intimidated by them until I began to experiment with them. The top four allow horizontal distribution, the bottom four allow vertical distribu- tion, and each choice provides a different method to arrange objects. They can all speed up workflow when it is understood how they work. I encourage one to try all of them to discover the value of each. Next is the Text alignment — first line baseline, last line baseline, bounding box and outline — these are fairly self-ex- planatory. In understanding baselines, I will attempt to brief ly explain how these relate to text. (A quick note: Out of curiosity, I opened my X5 version of CorelDR AW to look at the Align and Distribute functions. No docker is avail- able, and it is limited compared to X7 and later. I highly recommend one to up- grade to a newer version if at all finan- cially possible). Figure 3. Figure 4. Figure 5.
