The rectangles below have been grouped together by me. I realized that I probably should have aligned them before grouping them. I'm wondering if there is a way to align them (to their top edge) within their group.
Also, after I am done with the alignment, is there a way to "expand" or "transform" these rectangular objects until they are the same width, and aligned on the bottom side? They are very close, but could be a few pixels off here and there. I am just curious if there is such a workflow for aligning and expanding objects as necessary to that they are "flush" with the alignment plane.
Illustrator knows where the boundaries of these planes are. Take this selected object for example:
It clearly knows the outermost boundary points in the object to make a rectangle.
