In many cases I want to move an object into alignment with another object in Inkscape. I do not want to use align and distribute because that will move both objects. I want to keep the existing object where it is, and move the new object to be flush with it. How can I do that?
Example 1: I have an existing rectangle. I have just drawn a new rectangle and I want the top of the new rectangle to be aligned with the top of the existing rectangle.
Example 2: I have an existing rectange. I want to place text in the center of that rectangle, but I do not want to move the rectangle.
