Distribute Tools Horizontally/Vertically


It would be nice if we can arrange some tools on the canvas neatly by one click and having them distributed evenly (horizontally/vertically).


See this picture which worth thousand words.

This is now available in the 2018.2 release. You now have the ability to align tools and distribute evenly. Check it out!

I see alignment function, but not the "distribute evenly" function. Latter one launched? searched for setting pages and couldn't figure out :S

Here's what I see when I right-click on Canvas with multiple tools selected. (Admin Designer Ver:2018.1.3.42973)

@MY This feature was shipped in 2018.2. It looks like you are on version 2018.1.

I like the Distribute Horizontally and Vertically right-click menu options that I now have in Alteryx 2018.4

Is there a hotkey for 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically'?
