Implementing Object Baseline Alignment In CorelDraw X3

There are different alignment options available in CorelDraw X3, among which ‘Baseline Alignment’ or ‘Align Bottom’ is among. There are basically two ways of implementing this alignment option.

But before we go into implementing this option, let us first understand what Baseline Alignment or Align Bottom is?
As the name implies, Align Bottom is making the bottom/base of all selected object to fall into an horizontal base line of a selected object perfectly.

Having said that, now let’s talk about how to implement it. As mentioned earlier, “there are basically two ways of implementing this alignment option” these ways are:

Way 1: Select the object you want the baseline alignment/Align Bottom function to apply to, next press B in your keyboard. Note: Not Shift+b, nor Caps Lock+b, but just b.

Way 2: Select the object you want the baseline alignment/Align Bottom function to apply to, next click on Arrange in the Menu Bar of CorelDraw X3 window, and in the Arrange dropdown menu list that appears place your mouse on Align and Distribute option and a sub-menu list for Align and Distribute will appear, next flip to the option Align Bottom and click.

Note: The object baseline which CorelDraw X3 uses to align other selected object bottom to is determined by either the order at which the object are created or the order at which the object are selected. If you marquee select the objects before you align them, the first object created is used. If you select the objects one at a time, the last object selected is use as the reference point for aligning the other objects by CorelDraw X3.
