The Align tool allows you to align, distribute or organize selected elements, annotations, tags and text along the axis you specify. Furthermore, the Arrange feature will automatically neatly place your tags around the current view.


The Align plug-in for Autodesk® Revit® can help to save time while producing complex drawings with large sets of annotation.


Just select a few elements and the Align tool will sort them for you.


This version is using the code from Deyan Nenov. Big thanks to him!

  • Great tool
    Andrés Gómez García | May 05, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It is a great tool, please update to 2023!

  • great app - v2023?
    Chris Ford | April 22, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    very useful little utility, when will it be updated for 2023?

  • Most used app by far!
    Carl Mitchell | April 10, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Please can the developer update to 2023. This is an amazing app and i use it everyday.

    Side Note: I'm actually shocked that we are in 2023 and this isn't native to Autodesk! Seriously, for the price of a yearly subscription I'd expect this type of functionality to be baked in!

    No wonder the worlds architects are writing to Autodesk to let them know this isn't good enough! Pull your finger out!

  • One of the most underrated free Revit Add-ons!
    Jack Walshe | May 18, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very useful set of tools to Align lots of things, not just Annotation. (Revit 2021 issue: once aligned, the set of annotation remains highlighted, but if you try to nudge the annotation it doesnt move. Re-focusing on the view  by clicking on theview name  tab seems to re-set the focuse and you can move the updated tags...)

  • Very helpful!!
    준기 | December 10, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    One request for correction is likely to require an update of the distribute horizontally function. My opinion is that you should change it to the average of the highest and lowest objects, not the average of the first and last objects.

  • Great app.

    Sandon Honeyman | April 16, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works amazingly. and saves so much time. Seriously Autodesk, how is this not a standard feature in revit?!?! We should not have to rely on add-ons for basic features such as this.

  • Revit 2020 Version
    Gergely Dudás | January 14, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Hey Guys!

    I am wating the Revit 2020 Version for this app!

    Until I found this solution to get it work in 2020. I copied from here "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\BIM 42 Align.bundle\Contents\Sources" this 2 file: "AlignTag" and "AlignTag.dll" to this folder "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2020".

    Now for me it's working fine with Revit 2020.

    Philip Poigner | January 16, 2020

    True hero, right here! Thanks!

    Frederik Van Nespen | January 20, 2020

    Rizky Anisa Yuneidi | March 18, 2020

    It works! Thank you so much!

    Lucas Rubini | March 23, 2020

    There's another option: Open "PackageContents" with a text editor, located in "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\BIM 42 Align.bundle", and add the following lines at the end, before </ApplicationPackage>: <Components Description="2020 parts"> <RuntimeRequirements OS="Win64" Platform="Revit" SeriesMin="R2020" SeriesMax="R2020" /> <ComponentEntry AppName="Align" Version="1.4.0" ModuleName="./Contents/Sources/AlignTag.addin" AppDescription="Quickly and easily align tags for perfect drawings." /> </Components>

    Thien Duc Tran | April 09, 2020

    Bro. Thanks so much :)

    Chris Waltz | April 27, 2020

    I was very excited when I read this suggestion as I feel lost without this amazing plugin since upgrading to 2020, unfortunately for me the change wasn't successful. I also tried @Lucas Rubini suggestion which didn't work for me either. Looking forward to the update, unless anyone else has another suggestion.

    Houman Edraki | August 26, 2020

Any chance to add the function of aligning tags that are aligned vertically (in 45 degrees angle) for the next update? Thanks again for great work!

  • Room Tag Alignment Error
    Blake Larson | July 25, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I am trying to center align Room tags to Ceiling tags. However, when I do this I get an error saying:


    Parameter name: Head position of the tag with no leader could not be located outside of the host element."

    Your known issues page says something about  Room, Space and Area tags with a leader need a double click be aligned. I would like to do this without a leader on the room tag.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This is all I've ever wanted. I cannot believe I didn't search for a plug in earlier for this. This has made my week!!!

  • Almost perfect
    Aric Crosson Bouwers | November 10, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This add in is very useful, I find myself reaching for it often (via keyboard shortcuts of course). I have been using this a while longer now, and I have another feature request. It would be really useful having an "align centre" tool that centres the SECOND object to the FIRST object's location, instead of moving both to meet in the middle. This would be a very simple way of centering objects with a shortcut instead of having to select and move by midpoint

  • Excellent
    Shafeekh Melangadi | August 22, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    The only addin that I bring from the panel and keep it at the work space. Kudos to the development team…!!!!

    Jacob Gann | June 28, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a very useful tool. Thanks for building and maintaining it! Any chance of adding a new alignment button? I would like the ability to "stack" (wall) tags directly on top of each other. It's essentially a double alignment, center - center. Thanks!

    Simon Moreau (Publisher) | July 10, 2017

    Thanks for using it ! I rather keep the number of buttons to a minimum, even if some features are missing, to keep the overall user experience simple and intuitive. Why don't you click on "Align Center" and "Align Middle" successively ? The app should keep your selection between the two clicks.

    Rachel Wein | June 12, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I would love it even more if it could be added to the quick access toolbar. An older version had this I believe but Revit 2017 isn't allowing it.

  • Ottimo lavoro
    Luca Lanatà | May 02, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)


  • Great tool
    Martin Phillip Hald | April 27, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Overall I'm very happy with the tool and the results! I would like to be able to define which tag the rest of the tags will align to (top/bottom, left/right). How about implementing a button to switch between last selected tag and default (highest/lowest placed etc.)?

    Simon Moreau (Publisher) | April 27, 2017

    Thanks ! Your idea is really interresting, but I rather keep the number of buttons to a minimum, even if some features are missing, to keep the overall user experience simple and intuitive.

    Aric Crosson Bouwers | November 10, 2017

    I agree with this - sometime you want to move the majority of the tags TOWARDS the detail, and sometimes you want to move the majority AWAY from the detail - this could be placed in a separate "settings menu" that you only access to change defaults (such as align to first selected, align to leftmost, align to rightmost, align to last selected) I believe this would add a considerable amount of functionality, and I would use this addin constantly instead of just sporadically as i do now.

  • I used this app all the time in 2017

    but in 2018 I am unable to assign any keyboards shortcuts which makes it very difficult :( Please please fix so that I may edit my review to reflect my true opinion.

    Simon Moreau (Publisher) | April 26, 2017

    Hello. I am sorry to hear that your keyboards shortcuts are not working. I just tried on my own Revit 2018, and it's working fine (see screenshot Can you send me a screenshot of your issue ? Thanks for your help !

    J Mart | May 03, 2017

    The Align add-in shortcut keys are not show up for me

    Simon Moreau (Publisher) | May 04, 2017

    I am running out of options :( Did you try to just type "Align" in the search bar of the Shortcut panel, without filtering by the Add-Ins tabs ? You can also try to unistall and reinstall the Align plugin.

    J Mart | May 05, 2017

    Looking at the picture you provided it shows the keyboard commands under the add-ins tab. & just typing in align causes several align functions to show, so much that it would be impossible to fit in one picture. The picture shows Paths have been sorted alphabetically, Can you see the grey arrow pointing upwards next to the word "Paths." Now, if you where to do the same thing the Add-Ins keyboard shortcuts would be the first Paths displayed.

  • Works but is somewhat limited
    Jeremy Epps | August 29, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you for the free handy little plugin but I have to ask why the need for a leader for the addin to work? There are many times when I have a large amount of tags on a sheet and use zero leaders, I would still like tags aligned. This plugin should work just the same with or without the leaders. Is this possible?

    Simon Moreau (Publisher) | August 30, 2016

    Yes, it should be perfectly possible. I will add it for the next release.

  • Not working with multi leader text

    brandon pitt | November 18, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very useful add-on for annotating. Wish you could leave the commands expanded on your second screen so you don't have to click the drop down to change alignment.

  • Very Helpful Tool
    Eric White | August 19, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I really enjoy tagging several items and then being able to align left or right. The one thing I think that could make this even better is if the addin worked with "text boxes" also. Many times, we use text and tags together and if we could use one tool to align them, that would be amazing. Even if there were two tools, Text alignment and Tag Alignment, it would be very helpful. Good job though! Keep up the good work!
