Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to align layers in the current document, based on matching layer boundaries.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Edit » Layers » Align Border (Auto-Detect) command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will enter alignment mode. You will be prompted to select a closed border. Simply position the cursor over an edge of the border for the target layer that you wish to align all other matching layers to, and click. All layers that contain a matching border will be aligned to the target layer.

Continue aligning layers by border, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit alignment mode.


  1. Any layers where no matching border is detected will be left alone.
  2. The selected border should be a straight edge of a closed boundary.
