ALIGN TOOL - Why is it so archaic? Is there a new plugin?

Recommended Posts

My major gripe with Vectorworks has always been the method to align objects. Using command= all the time is so slow & clunky.

Someone once wrote a plugin so that align method looked & worked like Illustrator or InDesign but this no longer works in 2008 or later. It was quite brilliant.

Has anyone re-written this plugin? Is it available?

Is this function somewhere existing & I just haven't discovered it?

Or when will Vectorworks speed up the align process?

Unfortunately, it does not seem to be compatible with VW 2012. It ends up crashing VectorWorks.

I second this... after using Adobe Illustrator it's very hard to use the VW pop up dialogue.

A ton of basic 2d tools haven't been updated and work in this clunky manner.
