How to distribute objects inside another object in illustrator?
I am new to illustrator and am struggling to find answer anywhere to this seemingly simple task...
I am trying to align 3 narrow vertical rectangles inside a larger rectangle ( I am making a Trash Can Icon)
I am trying to use the align tools but have yet to manage to get these 3 rectangles to distribute equally inside this larger rectangle.
I am sure there is a very simple solution but I can't find it...
This is one way of doing it. I am sure there are more elegant ways, but this works:
- Create your rubbish bin outline
- Draw five vertical lines
- Align two of them with the sides of your rubbish bin
- Select the lines, and use the align-tool to distribute them equally
- Delete the two guides, move, alter and adjust your three remaining lines.
