Distributing objects so that they are equidistant
The Distribute commands — Distribute Horizontally and Distribute

commands arrange objects so that the same amount of space appears
between each one. Rather than go to the trouble of pushing and pulling
objects until they are distributed evenly, you can simply select the objects
and choose a Distribute command.
Figure 4-15 demonstrates how the Distribute commands work. In the figure,
I chose the Distribute Horizontally command so that the same amount of
horizontal (side-by-side) space appears between the objects. Distributing
objects such as these on your own is a waste of time when you can use a

1. Arrange the objects so that the outermost objects — the ones that will

In other words, if you want to distribute objects horizontally across a
page, place the leftmost object and rightmost object where you want
