Align Tool and Smart Positioning

After you create new PDF objects , you may need to rearrange, resize, or move them to give the page a cleaner, more professional look.

To make adjustments in the layout of new PDFill Objects, there are two arranging tools (Align Tool and Smart Positioning) to arrange and align objects on a document page. With these tools, you can easily align multiple objects to the left, the right, vertically, horizontally, to the top and to the bottom. You can update the properties of the selected objects and send objects to the "back" or bring objects to the "front" like Microsoft Word.

To select one or more objects, you can use the Multiple Selection by Mouse Dragging (Hold left mouse button to draw a box from left to right or from right to left).

If you want to align the original PDF Form Fields, you need to make them editable first from Edit Menu => Make Original Form Field Editable.
