    • Center - align objects on an axis mid-way between the left-most and right-most objects in the selection.
    • Right - align objects to the right edge of the right-most object.
    • Distribute equally - horizontally space the selected objects evenly, using the left-most and right-most objects as the left and right boundaries respectively.
