Paragraph alignment


Object Alignment

Objects can be moved between layers (uses the z scale), behind text and floated (aligned left or right with content flowing around the element). To apply object alignment, select the object and choose an alignment option from the Home menu. When an element is locked, it will not move between layers.

Element menu

The image below shows 3 separate images of a red, blue and yellow rectangle at the top of the page. The separate rectangles were then floated, and dragged to overlap each other (shown at the bottom of the page). Using the Send to front and Send to back menu options, the rectangles were arranged in layers, so what apears to be a single image is actually made up of 3 separate images.

Example of floated elements using layers

Ruler

Show and Hide options
