Summary0001730: Distribute/Align doesn't correctly distribute space
DescriptionThe distribute/align function doesn't appear to correctly distribute space between objects. It moves them a small distance but doesn't seem to actually distribute space as designed.
Steps To Reproduce- Open either of the two documents attached, or create your own with a small set of objects (for the purpose of this example, five squares).
- Select all the objects on the page
- Item->Distribute/Align
- Leave one axis on 'leave unchanged' and set the other to 'distribute evenly'. In this example I've left the vertical axis unchanged.
- Press 'Apply' or 'OK' (I used Apply)
- Note that the objects have been redistributed, but certainly not such that the space between them or distance between their centres/edges is distributed evenly.

Two sample documents are attached. For the 'spaced' case, before/after screenshots are included.
TagsNo tags attached.

I'll try to look into this. I'm going back to Uni on Monday though so it may be a while.

Same here. (14 Feb 2005 build)

It occurs with the "distribute evenly" option.
As soon as you put a value, it works ok.

Tested too and Louis is correct, adding a value makes it work correctly.

Just note. All distances between objects
are equal except of the first and last distance.

Resolved with new palette, not with old. Old will go when new is complete.
