Scott Rossi made a widget called tmAlign. Very handy. Yes you can do this with a script, like set the topleft of object1 to the topleft of object2 or set the top of object1 to the top of object2. Center alignments get trickier as you have to use items of the loc. set item 1 of the loc of object1 to item 1 of the loc of object2 might work if you can reference an item when you are setting something. Otherwise you will have to get the loc of object1 first, put item 1 of the loc of object2 into item one of it, then set the loc of object1 to it.

Does anyone know if this functionality can be accessed by scripting? Obviously I can figure it out and write my own handler, but can I just call the existing routines? Anybody know?
