Align distribute center doesn't work
Trying to use Align>Distribute center with Align to Selection selected - on a group of elements.
Elements arent distributed symmetrically but seem to randomly distribute, some elements very close together and others very far apart. Same issue has been repeating since updating to 23.0.1. Working on MacOS Mojave 10.14.
For example the attached 3 elements were aligned with horizontal center distribution, but the center object moved close to the left text block.
Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.
Thanks & Regards,

There's a comment on this thread (by Ron) with a solution that worked for me: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/40799728--horizontal-distribute-buttons-broken-in-illustra?tracking_code=0adc1486a76f2ce4a947c53265f1af8e
Basically, chances are the setting on your object alignment switched from "Align to Selection" to "Align to Key Object." When I switched it back to "Align to Selection" everything works fine for me.

Having the same issue as Arvind. Vertical and Horizontal distribute command results in align center. Version 24.2.3.
Vertical and Horizontal distribute tool issues in ver 24.2. It instead does vertical align center.
I'm having the same issue with Vertical and Horizontal distribute tool. Problem arose after update to 24.2

I've noticed an issue with specific fonts. I had this issue with Alexander Quill, it threw the object outside the artboard when I tried to distribute it. To work around this, I had to change the font to a similar size, distribute, and then change the font back.
