I'm trying to edit the rightmost column of squares (below) so they all have the same x value.

However when I try to edit their values as a group selection, it does not alter their values to the new position.

Without doing this manually, what's the best way to convert multiple different values to the same absolute value in Illustrator?

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. In the Align panel, choose Horizontal Align Center, then you can set the x position of the group. – Billy Kerr Apr 10 '19 at 9:17
  • You need to either move them individually, or use the align tool. Also, it looks like you have a messed up lower left corner on the center row. Good luck. – 13ruce Apr 10 '19 at 12:04
  • @BillyKerr Hi thank you both for your replies! Yep clicking horizontal align centre solved it. – cdpp Apr 11 '19 at 1:23
  • @13ruce oh yeah, good eye! thanks haha – cdpp Apr 11 '19 at 1:24

Use the Align panel (Window → Align or Shift+F7).

Select the objects you want to be aligned then click preferable align type.

Sorry for Swedish in the pictures but I think you can figure it out.
