Much to my surprise the align tool is not aligning properly with text and I'm not sure what the issue is. My snap to grid distance is set at 1 in preferences.
Task: Left-align several vertically-stacked lines of type using the alignment tool. All lines have text-align: left.
Result: Some of lines of type display 1px off from each other. Using the right-align tool yields the same issue.
Oddly enough shapes align pixel-perfect.
Any ideas? Thanks!
I'm not certain of this, but I believe the Align panel aligns the text runs as opposed to the text boxes themselves. This should be a good thing, as it's usually the text that needs to be aligned, not the invisible boxes containing the text.
Could that be what's happening?
Hi Groove, I think you're onto something there. After some experimentation and enlarging to 200% low and behold my Ys, Ts, Ls, and Cs all align nicely with my guide. Why I didn't do that to begin with will forever remain a mystery. :-)
