I normally keep my alignment set to Artboard and that works fine but sometimes I need to align by selection and back to artboard.
This ends up feeling like I’m wasting clicks after a while. I have a better workflow to save myself some clicks!!! Introduce the align to Key Object function to become more efficient.
The way I save on some clicks is, I always keep my Alignment set to Artboard. This is the function I use most. When I’m aligning multiple objects but do not want to align to Artboard, I can choose a Key Object by giving it an additional click. That additional click is what defines it. In the image above, the Key Object is the one with the thicker outline.
