I'm new to Inkscape.

I want to align/uniformly distribute vertical lines within a rectangle. So that the space between the lines is all the same distance.

For example, if I have a 300x400 pixel rectangle and 4 lines, I want to distribute them with same distance inside the rectangle, but I couldn't do. Instead, they were aligning with each other. I put my output below.

  • Not certain I understand. So, you want the vertical lines to be evenly distributed within the enclosing rectangle?

  • Yes, what you say is right. I wanted to do it, but I couldn't.
