    Is there a way to put the alignment tools like the ones shown in my pic (these are from Gerber Omega) in the CorelDraw X3 toolbar?

    :thankyou:

    Why don't you just hit...

    L -left, C- vertical center, R-right, T-Top, B-Bottom, E - horizontal center

    Isn't that easier?

    Yes you they would be in a separate toolbar that you can put anywhere.

    But why would you. The alignment shortcuts are soooooooo easy.

    Like for instance. Select a few object and press 'L ... everything is now aligned left.

    Try it again with R L T B C E
    No need for a toolbar when it's that easy

    Thanks weasel. It think it might be easier if I were used to doing it that way. I'm used to the tool in Omega and would like to copy the interface as much as possible.

    select all and press P and the selected will center on the page.

    Alignment shortcuts in Corel are the best.

    Piqua, oh
    Thats what I was going to say!
    Yep, this is how I do it. So much quicker than finding the right button on the toolbar.

    I think you have to make yourself a custom toolbar from the Options/Command Bars... Click New.... then find all the alignment icons and drag them in. You can then put the toolbar wherever you want on you page.
    You can even change the look of you icons

    Another really cool trick is the ol' Drag and Dupe

    Select an object, click and drag where you want it to go, before you release the left mouse button, tap the right mouse button while still holding the left mouse button. You will create a duplicate of the object that you are dragging. One in the original location and one in the new location.

    You also can do some really cool tricks by dragging with the mouse and right key, you can move colors, outline, and other things.
