I have a word that I converted to outlines, and I want each object to be aligned diagonally to the artboard, although nothing seems to work. How can I do that?

Here is a different approach to achieve something similar to what I show in my other answer.
If you just want to distribute the letters purely based on their geometry, you can do the following:
Select your rotated, expanded word.
Select Object > Ungroup to make the letters individual objects.
Roughly place the letters like you want them.
In the Align panel make sure to click Align to Artboard and then click Vertical Distribute Space followed by Horizontal Distribute Space.
Note that although this distributes the letters mathematically precise, the different shapes of the letters might force you to manually nudge the letters around until achieving a balanced look.
