Aligning objects
To align objects relative to one another:
1. Select two or more objects that you want to align. The first object that you select - the base object - will not move; the objects that you select subsequently will move in response to the commands you choose.
2. Select Format > Align and choose the desired alignment method. You can align the left, right, top, or bottom edges, or the horizontal or vertical centers.
To center one or more objects horizontally or vertically on the form, select Format > Center In Form and choose the desired option.
To align objects to the grid, select Format > Align > To Grid. The top left corner of each object snaps to the nearest intersection of horizontal and vertical grid lines.
