See attached video clip. 

Steps to reproduce

  1. Make a selection of complex shapes (5 objects in video clip)
  2. Select align to selection (just to work out kink in align to key object from previous bug)
  3. Select to distribute objects horizontally

 

Expected Result:

5 objects are moved horizontally so there is equal spacing between each object (horizontal distribution)

 

Actual Result:

5 objects seem to converge partially to a key object

 

Continued Steps:

4. Undo incorrect distribution (5 objects still selected)

5. Double check that objects will align to selection

6. Select Align Objects to Horizontal Center

 

Expected Result:

5 objects should overlap and align to all centerpoints of the object

 

Actual Result:

5 objects…well look at the video, 4 objects align, the 5th object is pushed out the right by an arbitrary amount. Subsequent clicking of align to horizontal center push the 5th object further out to the right.

 

No objects were locked, but the 5th object is acting as if it is partially locked. Help, this is a basic drawing tool feature.

Did you reset the preferences after updating to the latest version?

Also: you will need to set the "Align to" tothe bounding box once. And then it should work correctly.

@monika - genius suggestion, did not fix my problem per se, but I was able to identify which vector group is not behaving correctly - appreciate the suggestion! Thanks.
