How to Align and Arrange Objects

Alignment in Visme determines how your texts and objects appear and are positioned. This feature effortlessly arranges and positions elements, saving you time and ensuring a clean and organized visual presentation. Align elements to the top, middle, bottom, left, center, or right, and evenly space them horizontally and vertically. Achieve a polished and clutter-free project with ease and precision. Here’s how:

How to Align Objects

Hold down the Shift key on your keyboard while clicking on the desired objects, or click and drag your mouse to select multiple objects at once.

After selecting the desired objects, you’ll find the Align To button located at the top right corner of the panel. Simply click on it, and a dropdown menu will appear with various alignment options in the Align To section. Choose your preferred alignment option, and the object will automatically align accordingly.

Tip: Align to option will only show up at the top right of your screen when you select more than one object.

Using the Snap to Object feature you can easily align and position objects together on a plane with more precision and speed and have more control as you move elements within your project.

How to Distribute Objects Evenly

When you have three or more objects that require equal spacing between them, the Spread Evenly tool in Visme is the perfect solution. This handy tool ensures that your objects or texts are evenly distributed, both horizontally and vertically, creating a visually pleasing arrangement.

Hold down the Shift key on your keyboard while clicking on the desired objects, or click and drag your mouse to select multiple objects at once.

After selecting the desired objects, you’ll notice the Align To option located at the top right side of the panel. Click on it and choose either Horizontal or Vertical from the dropdown menu in the Spread Evenly section. Based on your chosen options, the objects will be evenly spaced either horizontally or vertically

How to Arrange Objects

In addition to the alignment tool, Visme offers the flexibility to arrange objects in the desired order. This feature is particularly useful when dealing with multiple layers and overlapping elements, as it allows you to determine the visual hierarchy of objects. By arranging objects in the desired order, you can easily identify which objects are positioned in the front or back. Moreover, placing objects in order enhances usability, making it effortless to click and interact with specific elements within your design.


Tip: Please note that the arrangement feature in Visme allows you to modify one object at a time. If you have multiple objects selected, the arrange option will not be available.

To arrange an object, you can also right-click on it, select the Arrange button from the menu, and choose the desired option from the dropdown menu.
