[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

align (Relative Horizontal Alignment)

This element specifies how a DrawingML object shall be horizontally aligned relative to the horizontal alignment base defined by the parent element. Once an alignment base is defined, this element shall determine how the DrawingML object shall be aligned relative to that location.

[Example: Consider a picture in a WordprocessingML document which has been aligned relative to the edge of the page - the left of the page horizontally, and the top of the page vertically. This alignment would be specified as follows:

<wp:anchor … >
  <wp:positionH relativeFrom="page">

The align element with a value of left specifies that for the horizontal positioning defined by the parent element (in this case, positioning relative to the page), the picture must be aligned to the left edge of the page. end example]

The possible values for this element are defined by the ST_AlignH simple type (§

Parent Elements

positionH (§
