Alignment of objects along a common axis

#1

I’ve managed to get several components that should align on an axis slightly skewed relative to one another.

How would you go about fixing that being certain that you didn’t make the problem worse? There are several components and groups in the drawing (but no layers).

Start by creating a guide line at the place the objects are supposed to align. Then use the move tool to relocate a key vertex of each onto the guide. Use inference direction locks to restrict the movement to one axis at a time. When you get everything aligned that way, use the rotate tool to eliminate any rotational skewing. Use the key vertex as the pivot center, the other end of the adjacent edge that should be on axis as the second click, and rotate to align with the guide line.

Thanks, Steve!

Your instructions helped. I got everything aligned.
