Environment

  • Product Family: Software and Controllers
  • Product: Show Control 2.14.1.6  or later
  • Components: Content Studio
  • Control System: Show Control, Live Clips, Studio One
Alignment tools are available on the tool bar in version 2.14.1.6 or later. 

Steps

General icons in the tool bar allow aligning elements for left, bottom, center, right, top.  There are 3 alignment modes.  

 

1. Selection Alignment

 

  • This mode takes the element that is the most left, right, top, bottom, centered, and aligns the others with that location.  

  • In the example below, the green 2 box was the left most, so the other boxes aligned to that box's position.

2. Key element alignment

  • Hold down the Alt key and select an element to be the Key Element.  This item will now have a thicker boarder to show the Key Element status. 
  • The other elements will now be able to align with that location. In the example below, the red 1 box is the key element.
