    aligning objects to the center

    arjun2 Level 1

      how can i center objects to the center of the page? i.e. all the centers should overlap with the center of the page?

          If you go to Window>Object and Layout>Align, you can align objects to each other (selection), but also to the margin, spread, or page.
