    Aligning Objects to X-Coordinates

    abrahamguajardo

      Hi everyone,

       

      I'm working on a project right now that requires me to select all elements on a page, and then align that selection to a x-axis coordinate; I know there's a 'SelectObjects' script that comes default with InDesign CS6, however, after running it and getting the selection made, I go and then run the 'Equalizer 2.0' script from indiscripts.com (it allows one to copy and paste x - y coordinates to elements or groups of elements); what happens, is that ALL elements get sent to the x coordinate, but disregarding the initial spacing between them in the selection. I even ran the 'AlignToPage' and the same thing happens: ALL elements move to x and ignore the original spacing between them.

       

      If I make a manual selection of all elements on the page (or have 'SelectObjects' do it for that matter) and THEN manually change the x coordinate, the whole thing moves to said coordinate but keeping the original spacing between elements! I really don't know whats going on, and I'm really not as well versed in scripts as I should be; so my question I guess would be: any ideas??? I would greatly appreciate the help as this is for a client Im working for and would REALLY speed things up for me!!!
