question about the "align" feature

November 21, 2008 | 6:28 pm

Hi,

I have some patches that really look like spaghetti code, and wonder if I need to alt click each cable to make it look good.

If I ctrl-a so and align, all my objects also gets moved.

Cheers

You can use what I do: Hide Foreground, Select All, Align, Show Foreground. Gets all the cables and no objects. (Though background objects would get selected too, so hide them if you have them.) I generally don’t align any cords since I find it more readable that way, but I always use this technique when I want to hide all cords on lock.
