Distributing previously drawn objects to defined spacing

Recommended Posts


I'm aware of the Align and Distribute commands and the Duplicate / Move by Points Tool but my question regards to previously drawn objects.

For example, If I have 4 different rectrangles representing paintings on an art gallery wall, I know I can align and distribute according to spacing but is there a way to distribute and define, for example, 500mm between paintings?

Obviously, the move by points tool works but requires each object to be moved individually. Not too troublesome in this small example but scale up the problem and it'd be a right pain in the Vectorworks.

Any help appreciated
