Align to key object
The align tool currently will align two objects together but doesn’t allow for align to key object like desktop version
Carson Day commented
Unlike the desktop application, if two or more objects are currently selected, there is no ability to select/click one of the selected objects to set it as the object to align to.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create two objects at different locations on the artboard
2. Select both objects
3. While objects are still selected, select/click one of the objects
4. The object is not selected as object to align to

I use this tool all the time as a graphic designer, aligning and centering to a key object is a must have!
I always use alignment with key objects. Please include this to the new update. 👏

This one is a huge deal and a reason why I would jump to the desktop and not use my iPad.
It’s a minor thing but for me makes a huge difference in workflow, when i’m smoothly going through the motions creating work then come across an issue like this where its intuitive to want to select your key object in the way you would on the desktop and it don’t work, it stumps my flow and is just not a smooth experience.
