There is a little trick that I have been using for almost 2 decades now. I use it to make sure that my items are aligned perfectly in my documents (or presentations, publications, and even web sites). See, I am a stickler for having my images and graphics aligned just perfectly and I have wasted hours and hours trying to get things right.
My work around, instead of just guessing, was to draw a line using Shapes. I would hold down my Shift key to make sure my line was straight, and then I would nudge my objects so that they were touching the line.
Well, after previewing Microsoft Office 2013, I found out they stole my idea! Ok, maybe stealing is a harsh accusation - but there is my idea! My line! And I didn't even have to draw it. Things just snap right to it. It is called an Alignment Guide. Where, oh where have you been all my life?
