    Can I Align Objects Ignoring Mask Edges?

      Hello,

       

      I've been wondering if there is a way to align a group that contains 1 or more layer mask to either to the Artboard or another object, but for all Masks to be completely ignored. The "Use Preview Bounds" settings is checked but it doesn't seem to make a difference either way. For instance, I have text masking photos, but when I try to center the text to the left edge of the artboard, the text doesn't align there, the hidden left edge of the masked photo does.

       

      So, I've been aligning things with Smart Guides and temporary paths.. and it's a real pain.
