Align/Distribute Items Tool Broken

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that the Align/Distribute Items tool in Spotlight is broken. This is still true as of the most recent Service Pack. Has anyone else seen this?

Are there issues with all objects for any align/distribute option, or only issues with specific align/distribute options in combination with specific objects?


So far it seems to be working ok with what I am using the align/distribute for, but that does not mean there can't be issues in specific circumstances.

I'm using the Align and Distribute tool in the spotlight tool set. I have been using the menu command a little and it seems fine for now.

I have found that the Align and Distribute within the Spotlight toolset causes Vectorworks to lock up if you attempt to align/distribute symbols which are placed in the same location in your drawing. For example if you copy and past objects on top of each other, the tool will not work. If your symbols are spread out, this does not happen.


This bug has been reported and will hopefully be resolved with SP2.
