    Align to guides


      Hi, I have not been able to use my 'align to' buttons since upgrading to Adobe CC. I'm not sure if there is a menu option or some workspace setting I've not switched on? I am placing items from a pdf on the page.

          Is the panel available?

          Did you select several objects or a condition to align to margins/page?

          Are the objects not locked?


          Where does this function stop?

            the panel is available and the item is not locked. I select it with the selection tool and I can rotate it but when I click on the align tools nothing happens. I have had this for a while as this is a regular task i do. I usually just grab and move the object manually and look for the guide lines to appear when it's centered but it is frustrating that i should be able to (and used to) simply click the button.


            I've just tried the same on a created shape instead of a placed item but still the alignment tool doesn't work.

              for a single object you can align to page or to margins, but I suspect you are set to align to selection, so nothing will happen.

                Thank you Peter, I've had a look and you are correct, and once I change to 'align to page' it's working as I expected. I knew it would be a simple thing I'd missed!
