Is there a shortcut to align all objects in the center of an artboard instead of doing it manually?

  • Make sure you have at least 2 element selected – Izi Apr 3 at 13:48
  • If align to artboard is on then even one object is enough – joojaa Apr 3 at 14:02

Yes. Simply choose Align to Artboard in the Align Panel or Control Bar.

    In Adobe CC 2014 - you do not have the Align to section on the pop-up but it does appear on the tool bar – Ujjwal Singh Jul 10 '15 at 14:08

    Align to selection is still present on the Panel. That has never changed. Not sure what you're seeing @UjjwalSingh – Scott Jul 10 '15 at 16:16

  • Pay attention that the selection or group that are trying to align, doesn't have guides. – manzapanza Mar 25 at 16:15

In CC, press the pop-out menu to enable the additional options. Select "Show Options"

Select "Show Options"

Select the "Align To" button and choose "Align to Artboard."

Select "Align to Artboard"

After that, any objects you select and use "Align to Center" will be aligned with the center of the currently active artboard.
