transform alignment tool
I have been trying out the alignment tool.
Would like to see if I have things right with the 3 layers (as in xcf file attached) on top of each other so only top one exposed
Only the top layer may be selected (for align) unless I select the lower layer I want and close the eyes on the layers above .

"Relative to: First item" refers to the bottom layer

Is the "active path" the same as a "selection"?

"Active channel" refers to colors do you align to a color?

I can see align would line all your layers up if you had been moving the around for editing is that all its used for?

Or do you know of a reference that may answer all my questions
Sorry its a bit long winded but would appreciate any help
Thanks

A path is a set of lines to be drawn (see the Path editor (Path)). Aligning on the active path would be aligning to the selection determined by the path, but it seems this option isn't implemented yet.

The "active channel" is a channel selected in the Channels list (usually a saved selection)

The Align tool is normally used with layers that are smaller than the canvas, so they are a lot easier to select.
