Align/Distribute Function not reacting

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I needed to post as my favourite function, the Align/Distribute function (command = shortcut or also found under Modify > Align menu) just seems to have stopped working for the past month or so. I'm having no other vectorworks issues, the software's working fine.


I used to use the shortcut all the time but now I get no reaction when pressing the shortcut or going and selecting the option from the menu, no errors or other messages at all.


I find it so useful when aligning groups or objects or distributing items evenly into a space so I'm finding it really confusing why it's just stopped working.


I'm using Vectorworks 2014, any help appreciated!

Close Vectorworks, then backup.and reset your preferences as described here:


Reboot your machine then retry align/distrib in a new document with some simple test objects and let me know the results.
