Why We Need Alignment Guides

Spacing and composition is important of design and diagram. With alignment guides, we can easily place the elements one by one just by using our mouse. Keyboard or other function is not needed for it so it is convenient for our work. Moreover, as there are different kinds of alignment guide we may need in the design, they are divided by different colors. For example, the orange alignment guides represent the middle point of the canvas horizontally and vertically, while pink represents alignment guide of different elements.
