Showit Feature: Vertical and Horizontal Centering Tools

.

I remember the day JT (Showit Design Lead) showed me this little trick I'm about to share with you. Perhaps you use it all the time… but if you don't, be prepared to get excited. This Showit Desktop feature is bound to make designing a little easier.

site-layout-centerWhen you've selected an item on the Showit stage you'll see four tabs on the right side of your screen. On the Layout tab you'll find the Size & Position section, Transitions and Edge Locking. If you have questions about any feature inside of Showit, you can always consult the Showit Wiki here.

What you may not have noticed though are the two little lines with tiny white boxes that sit just to the right of the X and Y position selectors. I had never taken the time to click on either of them, assuming they were a visual representation of the X and Y axis.

What they actually do is help you align an item on the Showit Stage to the exact center. The top icon, adjacent to the X selector box will position any item on the stage to the exact vertical center. The bottom icon, adjacent to the Y selector box will position any item on the stage to the exact horizontal center.

I had already been using Showit for about three years when JT opened my eyes to these very handy tools inside of Showit. Proving that there are tons of great, little-known features built into the Showit software.

Is there a Showit feature you'd like to know more about? Let us know in the comments below and we'll feature it in an upcoming post.
