Hi, this is actually a post for the "Ideas" sections, but i seem not been allowed to post an idea  on my own.
Reason is, i cannot fill the field "publish locations"

Could you "transform" this question into an idea ?
Thanks in advance


1. What is your idea?

to enrich the "align" function (used to arrange the spatial disposition of several selected toolbox objects) with two new functions :

  • distribute horizontally
  • distribute vertically


These functions are well known by MS Powerpoint users


2. What specific problem are you trying to find a solution to, or what new scenario would this idea respond to?

Having a screen with many objects (application menu), especially buttons and labels, can be very maintenance intensive without this function, when for example a new business process is implemented, needs its dedicated button(s), and to make it nice, all buttons needs to be separated by the same distance


3. What workaround have you found and used so far (if any)?

I don't know any workaround for this. Currently, six functions are available to help arranging the screen objects together:


It would be very nice to get two more functions there !


thanks and regards,
