You need to see whether in the Align option - down right hand corner - under 'Align to section' - need to select 'Align to artboard option', then it will work properly

This may not be the most elegant solution, but working in Illustrator is all about problem solving. My suggestion would be to place two extra lines on the edges of the square, for the vertical lines, one on the exact right and one on the exact left, then dropping your two original lines pretty much anywhere in between. Then select all four lines, switch to ...

Looking at your sample, my immediate reaction is that Illustrator is the wrong tool for the job. It (inexplicably, and in my opinion inexcusably) lacks the kind of snapping functionality you need. You'd be better to create these outlines in a CAD tool, which would make this kind of alignment easy. Once you have your completed outline, save as a .dwg and ...

Your question is exceptionally unclear. You have a single object selected, you do not offer any information as to how you are trying to align that single object nor any detail as to what exactly isn't working. However.... Align has three functions: Align to arbaord Align to other objects (selection) Align to a single key object Items 2 and 3 require ...

The easiest way to do this with an equal triangle is to use Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform Draw one triangle, select it and choose Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform from the menu. Set the origin point to the top middle, set the # of copies to 1, and set the angle to 60° (to match the angle of the side). Click OK then ...

Are you trying to make a pattern like a line of triangles with the same distance between each triangle? If so you can take the first triangle and convert it to a s brush and set the distance between each triable. If you are trying to align 2 shapes side by side at the exact same x or y axis select the shapes and at the top of your screen there will be ...

As far as I know, you cannot change default stroke align. The only option to change that in normal circumstances is after you create some object. In normal I mean without scripting/code intrusion etc. Try to imagine how the program should decide where to apply the "inner" "outer" stroke on the open line or path which is not closed.

Really nice design! I think you definitely got the vibe right. Couple of things to consider: The email at the bottom, because the text is in the same font, it makes it a little difficult to read. If you made the first word bold, for example, that would separate it a little more. I find the alignment of the date and the word Lauantai a little confusing. ...

I would cheat and put the text into a table. ID tables are surprisingly useful for certain kinds of layouts where you need to force things to align.

The problem is perspective, which is different in the two shots. The older image was taken with a tilt-shift lens or a view camera, and the photographer slightly overcompensated: the sides of the building diverge from bottom to top. In the newer shot, the camera was tilted up, giving the more usual converging lines on the building sides. My approach here ...

On both frames, you will use the Text Frame Options dialog (Object > Text Frame Options... and its Auto-Size tab. For the quotes frame, set Auto-Sizing to Height Only and choose the top center anchor in the proxy. This will cause the frame to auto-size only in a downward direction. For the body frame, do the same but choose the bottom anchor in the ...

It was the hidden "Guides", they got grouped to the object(s). Unhide the guides and ungroup them from your object(s), and then try to align again.

draw a rectangle with the Rectangle Tool (M) change the transformation "anchor" proxy to the Middle Left change the width of the box you drew in step 1 to enclose all of your art with the rectangle still selected, go to Object->Artboards->Convert to Artboards then go to Select->All on Active Artboard

For me, I'd use hanging punctuation. Essentially you ignore the quotes and align to text. The punctuation (quote mark) hangs outside the column edge. This is very common in typesetting and dates back to the Gutenberg bible. Overall hanging punctuation helps the alignment of text appear more solid or uniform.

I'm doing the same all days. The only advice i could give you is: start with align to pixel from the very beginning of the project. Change from align to no align breaks all. Join me in the search for a better app for UI design, today I think illustrator's goods overcome its bads.

I think this is a case of Illustrator getting in the way of common sense. By far the easiest thing to do here is just do the math yourself! Why use distribute when it's easy to do with simpler tools as @MG_ has already pointed out. Get the dimensions of your square and divide by 3. Place the square at the origin (x:0 , y:0) of your document. You can use ...

I don't know Arabic but I don't see why it wouldn't be acceptable. it is just read from right to left but you can still center-align it. example:
