New way to align balloons in R6 ? paralell vs. center

31 Views, 2 Replies

Just noticed something changed from R5.3 to R6 (again)
Hard to explain but:
When I want to align two balloons I used to be able to drag the center of
one through the center of the origin ballon and have a "alignment" line show
up so the to ballons would match either horiz. or vert.

Now it tries to align the balloon lines instead, paralell.

Can we please have this back to as it was before or is there some kind of
setting somewhere ?

I would like to be able to create the balloon and align it all in one step
instead of creating it, RMB, Done, select, drag to another balloon, align
it, place it.

You can select the first balloon(the one you want to align to) and select
the balloons you want to align to it, and RMB > align
