I would very much like a tool to do the following:
I wish to select a range of icons and have these distributed, with equal spacing, based on the positions of the first and last in the selected range (similar to dtp/graphics applications' align/distribute tools).
The object is to achieve differential spacing for different groups of icons.
I'd like this to work for vertical and horizontal spacing.
Thus, one group of, say, 5 icons on the desktop could be equally spaced, based on the positions of 1 and 5 in that range. Call this range A.
Another group of, say, 3 icons could be equally spaced based on the positions of 1 and 3 in that range. Call this range B.
The spacing in range A could be different from the spacing in range B.
I don't mean the 'align to grid' feature built into Windows.
I use a utility called Align Icons 2.0 (see http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=6491.0
). That will align selected items by Top/Bottom/Left/Right. While it does a nice job on 'align', it won't 'distribute'.
