Evenly Distributing Text Boxes in SketchFlow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning!

    I'm trying to evenly space out several text boxes vertically. I know in Visio, they have the option to "Distribute Shapes" and this helps you evenly space out items. I can't seem to find the same functionality in SketchFlow.

    Does anyone know how to do this simply? I know I can do this the hard way - by looking at the properties of each, but I was hoping to find a simpler way to do this.

    Thanks!!

  • Elizabeth,

    There isn't a "Distribute Width/Height" function where you can select the items and then it does the work for you. They do have align functions, just not distribute. I'm not sure what the parent container of the 4 textboxes are, but you could put them in a stack panel and just apply the necessary margins on the bottom of each textbox from the properties panes.
