Hi! In Macromedia Freehand there was a button that distribute using the object width. Now that I trying to learn Illustrator, it's one of those things I missing. I can only get it to work using object center, left and right. How do you solve this?

ALWAYS state what version you are using.
Explain exactly what you mean by "distribute by using the object width".
In the flyout menu of the Align Palette, select Show Options if it is not already checked.
The distribute by spacing functionality is in the bottom.
Align/distribute is one of the few things Illustrator does better than FreeHand.
Thanks Jet! I have used the distribute options at the top and NOT the palette. Now I see the space option!
It's always seemed a rather ridiculous interface element to me: a Show Options checkbox buried in a flyout menu for a palette.
Isn't the whole purpose of a palette to show options?
