Moving a group from its midpoint to the midpoint of another group

Hi all

Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided, much appreciated.

I’m wondering if there is a quicker way to move one group from the midpoint so that it aligns to the midpoint of another group where there isn’t a midpoint available. The attached video explains. My workaround is to draw a line the full height of the group so that I can find a midpoint that allows the two to align centrally, but is there a quicker way?

Many thanks.

I have two ways of tackling that common problem. One is to use an extension called Midpoint. The other is to draw a construction line at right angles to one end of your destination line, then copy it to the other end, then hit /2 which will create a third line between the two and therefore an intersection where you want it.
