Note Box Alignment on Drawings

Is there an easy way to align 2 or more Note Boxes (either horizontally or vertically) on a drawing?

    Draw a line then you can snap the blue grip to the line (or edge of a part)
    this will move the text when the line moves.

    you can then delete the line when you're done.

    this works with balloons too

    @john_mcclary Does this work for vertical alignment as well?
  • john_mcclaryjohn_mcclary Member, Developers Posts: 1,486 PRO
    yes, any angle automatically

    @john_mcclary I'm trying to align two boxes vertically, so their left hand edges are aligned. When I drag the beige filled square to the vertical line as you suggest, it changes the size of the box. I want to maintain the box width, and "move" the entire box. Am I doing something wrong?

    oh, you want the text horizontal, but vertically aligned.

    hmm.. after playing with it for a bit, I can't find a way.

    Time to write up an improvement request :)

    You can align them manually, but there is no self align method that i know
    for moving the complete box just click in the middle of the text box, not on the beige fill square.

    By Clicking in the middle of the text Box and dragging it
