    Note: This is the relative to the Views out most point. This feature works best when Views are the same size, using Scope Boxes, however if text lies outside the Scope Box then is will distort the Base Point. Note: Left is a list of Views that exist on the selected Sheet.

  9. Select the Views you want to align by checking Align View.
