Grid

Okay, Okay, Wait a minute. :-)

I have a group with items in it that I want to align with other items that are 'not' in the group. But the items in the group are under other items so I have to 'edit group' to get to them but then I no longer can see the items that are not in the group and one of them is the one that I need to align to. Different items in the group need to align with different items outside of the group. 

Sorry about the confused explanation.

If you shift-click the objects you want to align and double-click when selecting the last one (or just leave the inspector already open) then the Align pane is available. That can align objects in just about any way you need. The first item chosen is the one that serves as the reference for all the other objects.
