How to Align Objects in Flash
Objects can be aligned to each other or aligned to the Stage. The toggle to Stage/Objects button is on the right side of the Alignment panel.
In this example we will align and distribute three objects to each other, then center them in the middle of the stage. Add three rectangles to the stage with the Rectangle tool (r key).
Select all three objects by choosing the Selection tool (v key) and marquee drag around all three objects.
Open the Alignment panel (Window > Align) or click the Align tab.
The to Stage/Objects button should be set to white. Click the Align Vertical Center button.
Click the Space Evenly Horizontally button to space the objects.
Choose Modify > Group (Cmd/g (PC-Ctrl/g)) to group the three rectangles.
Select the to Stage/Objects button so it becomes gray. Gray means to Stage and white indicates to Objects. Click the Align Vertical Center button. Then press the Align Horizontal Center button.
