Place Designs Precisely

Use the Precise Position Tool to Arrange Your Designs

Here’s how to move your artwork, or pieces of your artwork, so that it’s just the way you want it.

  1. Sign in and open a design that has multiple elements.

  2. Click on an element and the Precision Position tool will appear.

  3. Choose what part of your artwork you want to position, and use the tic-tac-toe board to indicate whether the placement is relative to the center, a particular edge or corner of your selection.

  1. Enter an X and Y value next to Position to move the element to that location.

Here's an example of using Precision Position to arrange a design using different points on the tic-tac-toe grid. On the left, the leftmost point of the circle was used to position the image, while on the right, the rightmost point of the circle was used to position the image.
