These commands work on objects selected with the Transform Tool (arrow) or in Objects Inspector.
Use the first command, Snap to Previous Object , to eliminate a jump caused when an object is moved accidentally.
Use Flip Vertically to flip selected objects along the horizontal axis.
Use Flip Horizontally to flip selected objects along the vertical axis.
Use Rotate Left to rotate selected objects 90 degrees anti-clockwise.
Use Rotate Right to rotate selected objects 90 degrees clockwise.
Note : Apply Rotation to Fill Stitches option. If this option is checked, angles of cover stitches and zig-zag underlay of Fill objects are adjusted whenever the object is rotated or mirrored. There are several function that use this setting: common rotation, flipping, corner function, auto-repeat function. If this option is not checked, stitch angles remain the same regardless of object rotation and mirroring.
Transformation window allows user to make transformations like objects movement, rotation, skewing, resizing and change of order. These operations are all available in an interactive form directly in the Work Area or in Object Inspector window. Moreover, Transformations window allows user to align and distribute selected objects within selection. Find out more about Transformations window here.
The next command, Bring to Center , is to help when an object is moved accidentally off the Work Area. Select the object in the Object Inspector window and click Center to bring the object back to the Work Area.
Center Vertically and Center Horizontally commands center selected objects according to respective axis.
Change Column Width allows user to make selected column objects wider or narrower.

Expand Objects enlarges selected objects by offsetting the object contours. It is intended for creation of overlay of constant width between adjacent objects. Expand Objects command does not provide the same result as normal enlargement.
Shrink Objects reduces size of selected objects by offsetting the object contours. Shrink Objects command does not provide the same result as normal size reduction. You can use it for fill opening to make it smaller, in order to create overlay between opening and another object that covers the opening.
Reduce Nodes Number removes nodes from selected objects according to chosen "Simplicity" parameter. This function is intended mainly to smooth lettering with distorted edges and large number of nodes, which is hard to edit node-by-node.
