Alignment tools: guidelines, snaps and margins

Some layout and editing tools offer ruler-based alignment tools with guidelines that you can drag onto your work place.

Memento Pro eliminates the fuss by offering a powerful set of auto-alignment tools.

When you resize or reposition an image on your canvas, alignment guidelines will appear automatically.

You can quickly align image frames to the edges or center of each other or to the canvas without effort.

Select one or more images, then drag them to a new position.

As the selection approaches other image frames, the page margins, or the vertical/horizontal mid-point of the page, guidelines will appear to magnetically pull the selection into place.

White snaplines appear around the canvas edge. These indicate the edges of your frames.

The snaps can be dragged.

Move the snap line from one frame to overlap with another's - the frames will be in alignment.

Overlapping snaps indicate that frames are aligned on their edges (including spacing). Moving a snap will cause all images on that line to move together.

Adjustable margin lines contour the canvas.

While each new page appears with the default margins as specified under Settings, the margin lines can be dragged into a new position.

Frames magnetically snap to the margin lines.

Margins and snaps work together to provide easy alignment.

Drag a margin line to a new position.

Drag a snap to align with the margin line  - all images on that snap line will now be flush with the margin.

Apply a new layout to your page (via Autoshuffle, the Layouts pane or the Layout preview).

Frames on the page will align to the new margin.

Tip: To create an evenly spaced grid or a mosaic use the Splitter. Learn more here.
