I have an issue where I have a rectangle with a bunch of circles inside. I want to distribute the circles evenly, however, it seems to have them overlapping and I cant figure out the issue. The align is working and aligning to the selection, the distribute just seems to not be playing along.
Can anyone help?
Look where the centre/origin of each shape is...I created a circle off to the left and duplicated it a few times. When I hit distribute (with the rectangle selected as well) the shapes have correctly distributed based on their origins. Though this is clearly not what you want:
If you move one circle to the far left, another to the far right, and the distribute again (without the rectangle selected) then you will get this:
I'm not sure why your object origins are not displayed...what version are you running?
Through dumb luck, i ended up at the same conclusion as you and moved one to the furthest left, another to the furthest right and that seems to have done the trick. Thank you for taking the time to explain it. The object origins are there usually, for some reason just not in the screenshot.
