Align Tools, Copy Tools and Smart Positioning

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

To make adjustments in the layout of new PDFill Objects, there are three arranging tools (Align Tools, Copy Tools 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.
