To align multiple Smart Shape hairpins

  1. Click the Smart Shape tool image\Smart_Shape_Tool.gif. The Smart Shape palette appears.
  2. Drag-select or SHIFT+click the handles of the hairpins you want to align.
  3. Right-click on the hairpin you want the hairpins to align to. Select Align Horizontal or Align Vertical from the contextual menu. If you chose Align Horizontal, the hairpins will move to line up along a horizontal line, based on the hairpin you clicked on. If you selected hairpins on more than one staff, the hairpins will move to the same distance from the staff. If you chose Align Vertical, the hairpins will reshape to line up the endpoints vertically.
