I am trying to align objects in Illustrator in a grid.
(The grid must not show in the final image). I want the center of each object to be aligned vertically and horizontally, as if it were at the crossing of each line on this grid.
Objects are not the same size.
When I use Illustrator’s Vertical Distribute Center option, I get this (note the red lines = not good):
but what I want is this (note the blue lines = good):
If I group my objects horizontally first, then distribute the space vertically, I get this (red = not good):
(My objects are not rectangles, but a logo of the same company name. Under each instance is the name of the country-specific branch, which is what makes each object a different size). Image 2 was done in Blender with Oscurart alignment tools
