Here the term 'aligns' must be interpreted as 'puts next to each other'; the first selected layer serves as a reference layer and it does not move. You can align layers having different sizes. A constant offset between two adjacent layers can also be specified.

-Run the script
-Select some layers (footage, comp, solid or text layers)
-Click on one or more checkbox control to allow alignment along the corresponding axis
-Optionally, move the slider control or edit text input to add a constant offset between consecutive layers
When a text layer is selected, the script assumes its anchor point to be located at the center of the layer.
