This is a good feature if you looking at perhaps keeping a consistent space between multiply shapes in your design.
The great thing about the Spacing Tool is that you are able to space the objects both horizontally and vertically, and also you get two different types of spacing to choose from.

Hi, guys. In today's video of Lexi Starter, we're gonna be looking at how to add spacing between your objects. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. Yeah. Mm mm. Uh, so today's video gonna be final softwaretraining.co.za got CEO today. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we have daily updates. Otherwise we're back on the programme. Yeah. Now, Yeah. This is a great little feature. If you wanna put equal spacing between objects of shapes that selected, obviously you can use it for different reasons in design and so forth. Now, these are a few things to cover first when it comes to the origin of, um, where the future is gonna be working from. So if we do a normal rectangle selection over shapes, then it will try. Do the space thing from the object that's lowest in the stack. In other words, if I made this one first, then I made a copy and then another copy. This will be the lows in the stack. Then this will be number two and number three. So if let's just change one colours here, our ones colour, then if we do this, you can see they are actually stack like this on top of each other. Now you can obviously change the stacking order by just simply right clicking this object while it's selected. And you can go here either sent away to the back way to the front. I mean way to the front of way to the back. Or we can go one forward, one back. You can see now it's under the grey. Let me just send it all again. So now So when we're doing box, select my apologies. That's how it's gonna work. Otherwise, if you're on a custom origin or should rather say, Let's say we want the grey Want to be the origin? Then what you wanna do is select the grand one first, and he keeps shifting and select the rest. Now we need the spacing, or use this as your origin and I'll try space these around it. We'll demonstrate a few of these options now, but let's just first box select Go to, um, to locate the actual feature. We're gonna go to our main menu on top to arrange you navigate down until we find spacing short. But for this is Jay. So we'll be trying to use this more, um, as we go along. But for now, so it's on the main menu. Arrange spacing. Now, as we can see here, we've got some yellow outlines. I apologise, and then I can kind of see there's a preview of where it's gonna, uh, space it. So you're on the right here on our design Central. If it's not open, you're always going to undo and redo. There's a little button there to open your design Central, as we increase is for the law arrows or click your mouse wheel. I was typing something. Obviously we can see the spacing changes. So now there should be an inch between all of these. Then under that, you can see we've got horizontal and vertical spacing so we can adjust that and just keep your mind. It doesn't reset it for you Now when it comes to the bottom here, we've got two different types of spacing, so we've got and the beginning, and we've got beginning to beginning. So in other words, what that means is the first one in the beginning or go measure from the end of your own shape to the beginning of the next. So then, at the end of one shape beginning of the next, it's even an equal spicy. If you want to ever go to the other one, this will be beginning to beginning. So let's go from the beginning of the shape to the beginning of the next shape. Now why this is relevant is, let's say, uh, when it's cancelled this it's a great object here is slightly smaller than the rest. Yeah, Then we select this and I'm gonna jay for the shortcut key. Now, when it's, um, end to beginning and we increase as you'll see, the spacing will stay the same year between the objects. But now, if we had to send it beginning to beginning, Obviously the one object is now smaller than the rest. So as we can see the spacing of you now differently on our sample on a preview. So it will go now from the beginning of this one to the beginning of that one. The beginning of this at the beginning of that one. And that is why we've got different spacing because one objects smaller. So just keep that in mind If you want to be relevant to the actual shape, the size of the object that you want to go beginning to end beginning the beginning. And then if you wanted to be equal spacing regardless of the size you go into beginning and then what you can do is you just click this little right Mark. Then it will do it for you will apply those changes. So once again, just a quick recap. If you box select, it will use your layer lowers on the stacking order And if you shift click you can, for instance, make this one the origin. Let's make it a centre one to say Surely in the beginning, if j or her menu spacing and then we can also adjust it. And now if we adjust this will see it will space the other two around the centre of the origin which once again is that white dot to show you where is the origin? Okay, and I'll space it accordingly. Otherwise, that is it on spacing objects. If we had here to softwaretraining.co.za c o dot z a notice. We've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover and also you can isolate your search with a search bar. Right? Then, um, if you don't find if you're looking for you can also just go here, request a training video, and then we will make that video for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
