Manage the Spacing of Objects and Shapes in the SAi FlexiPRINT RTUV 22 Software (Part 10)

flexiprint objects spacing

Now when you looking at adding nice and clean white spacing within your design, then the Spacing tool will be of great help.

This video is part of a Mini-Series that covers the Arrangement of Objects and Shapes within FlexiPRINT.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the spicing feature found within flexi print. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on co dot Z A. We make sure it's easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Now, if I go back in the programme here now, like with the align tool, the spacing we're gonna be, um, having a few different variations we can choose from now. A lot of times you might wanna combine these so you might align it to a certain point and then have equal spacing depending on what you're going for. So now what I'm gonna do is just select these, uh, shapes. Now there's two main, uh, alignment options we have I mean, uh, spacing options. But they both fall under the same feature. So in order to open the feature, I'm gonna go here to our main menu on top. Then we go to arrange, and then we wanna go down, navigate down to spicy. Now, if we had to go to the far right, we can see here. The shortcut for this is J so I'm gonna just go ahead and quickly use that. So with everything selected, press J and then there it will open out, uh, spacing feature here on our design central panel. Now on top here, we've got the actual spacing that we're looking for the distance. Then we have a few, uh, under that we've got the horizontal and vertical spacing, and then we have also end to beginning, and then we have the beginning to end. So in general, you probably use this one the first one, because it's more consistent. So what that will do is the space between this shape and that shape will be consistent in same way with the next side, that side and that side where if we had to change it to this one, then it will choose from the beginning of your shape, spacing to basically the beginning of the next shape. So if you all have, all those shapes are exactly the same size. You won't really notice much of a difference. But if they are differently sized like this, you will notice. So let's just have a quick, uh, preview here and we can see what's currently happening. So as you can see this shape now, the spacing here, it's gonna be 2.3 something then. Same between these two shapes and these two. Now, if I just switch this to the next one we see now Sunday, we get quite a different result. So if I had to change his values, you will see there's no equal spacing over here. It's kind of, um because it's reading it from one side of object to the beginning of another object. That's where it gets confusing. So I'm gonna switch this one back to the default, and then we've got a little option here at the bottom called Distribute. Now, what this is gonna do when it's off, it is gonna distribute it around the selected or the furthest away object or the object. That's number one on the cutting list. So, as you can see is the blue one here. So if I had to increase and decrease it, it will, uh, set it around this point. So this is great. If you wanna have an origin point and you wanna set the spacing around that, then you'll leave. Distribute off where if you had to put, distribute on. Now what it's gonna do is gonna go on furthest left, and it's gonna distribute it according to that. So this can be more convenient if you working at that work flow, but also another place where this will come in convenient. Let's say, um, I'm gonna cancel this. Let's make this object, maybe our furthest back one change its colour. So we just know which one we're working around. Now let's say we want space, our objects, uh, to the right of this. So I'm just gonna hit J to open our feature. So now I had to leave that off and I space it to the right. We can see we're getting nice equal spacing here between all of these. But now let's say I wanted to take these objects spacing to the left, so I'm gonna go to a negative value. So we're gonna go, go, go to it goes to the negative, and now suddenly you will see our spacing is no longer working correctly cause there's objects here and this one is inside of it and so forth. So they will say, OK, here, you'll see. We've got a weird spacing, and that is where the distribute will come in handy. So I'm gonna eat J. I'm gonna do the same thing. Distribute. And now I'm gonna go to a negative value. And now you will see, Once we hit past a certain point, I was a bit fast. Let's pull it back. We're gonna get equal spacing in a negative value as well, which, um, can be handy because sometimes cause on the horizontal, it doesn't always make that much sense. But let's say we've got all these shapes. We go align, I'm gonna line them all to the centre. And now let's say we wanna take these shapes and line up to the top or the bottom you see, Then it becomes interesting because then if we go to spacing now, if we add distribute on, we can get a nice equal spacing. Uh, let's facility to horizontal vertical. We can get equal spacing on the top or we can get equal spacing. If we go to a negative at the bottom. Let's go a bit. We're gonna wanna jump. There we go. Does that where it helps you. So in case you're going for a long time, it will speed up the process. Now we can see if we scroll down here, we can get equal spacing to both directions. But yeah, otherwise, that isn't on the spicing. So just quick recap so we can say the actual distance. Um, on this first little tab between these shapes, we can affect whether it's on a verti horizontal or vertical line. And then we can choose, um, how does it get affected from the beginning of the shape to the end or so forth? And then we can choose if we wanna distribute it around, um, everything or distribute it around a selected object. Then we can say we can hit the X if we don't like it or just simply click the yes, and then it will distribute or do the spacing for us. But yeah, otherwise that is it. On a spacing in the meanwhile, though, if we head here to co dot Z a. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search on the top, right? If you do not however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah.
