NEW: baseline align & distribute
by bulia byak
Improvements in Align & Distribute dialog:
o The new Unclump button works the same as in the Tile
Clones dialog, except that it unclumps the selected objects instead of
the tiled clones of the selected object.
o Four new buttons let you align or distribute horizontally
or vertically the baseline anchors of the selected text objects
(non-texts are unaffected by these buttons). A text object's baseline
anchor is the left end of its first character's baseline, visualized
as a small square mark when the text is selected. Now you can easily
align or distribute lines of text in different fonts or sizes,
regardless of whether they have letters with extenders (such as 'y' or
'j') or not.
o All the icons in the dialog are redrawn in a consistent
style. Buttons are rearranged for clarity. Tooltips are made shorter
and easier to understand.
Also, Simarilius is planning to move his "Grid arrange" dialog as a
second tab to the Align & Distribute dialog.
