Thanks, :-)

Actually I have hundreds of items to align some of which are very small 1 pixel wide items and the idea of doing that via script or from the message box was what got me searching in the first place. The short answer is There is no easy way to do this. I did seem to remember a ruler stack that you could drag out alignment lines but maybe it was another software.

Anyway, I'm actually done with this now. I used both scripting for the obvious ones and copy paste align delete for the rest. Tedious but it worked.

Thanks all

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.
