The Align shapes to terrain tool aligns shapes to arbitrary terrains (map layers with attribute elevation defined) or to the y=0 level. All currently selected shapes and all shapes of the selected layers are aligned. The shapes are aligned to a terrain, using an alignment function and an optional offset. You can access the Align shapes to terrain tool the following ways:
- Click the Align shapes to terrain tool on the toolbar.
- Click Shapes > Align shapes to terrain in the main menu.
