In Illustrator CS3 I am having a problem with alignment. I have used it plenty of times before with no problems, but now I have the following issue:
I created a rectangle that I want to center within my outline on my artboard. Everytime I select the rectangle and the outline and hit Horizontal Align Center the outline is centered with the rectangle and not the other way around. It doesn't matter witch one I select first, the outline still centers on the rectangle. What am I doing wrong?

You need to make sure the "Artboard" button on the bottom right corner of the align palette is selected. When activated, it should turn a darker color.

That was it! Thanks.
