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. 

Answer/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.
