I don't want to be mean, take it as a constructive comment.
But he was not the only person to look for this option, and i had to google it. People doesn't want to go thru all the freakin menus to find the option they commonly use. And people doesn't want to remember tons of shortcuts. I'm not saying it's not good. I often remember shortcuts that are commonly used all over the OS (ctrl-c, ctrl-v, alt-f4, etc). But when it get to alignment, every application use a different combination. So Ok for those who have enough empty space in their brain to store all these shortcuts, but for those like me...
Every good application that i know have this options: VIEW / TOOLBARS
Then the user pick up select the toolbar that he use really often
Alignment toolbar is by far, the most common. Adding toolbar doesn't require much more efforts from the developers (i'm a developer myself).
It's a free app, so i won't bug anyone with this, but you should really consider it if you want to improve user experience. And Thomas, maybe just reconsider your way to answer. Just a simple "Thanks for the suggestion, i'll add it to our customers wish list, but I can't tell you if it will be accepted by the team". It would sound less like "You already have shortcuts somewhere in the menu, so i don't give a shit. Deal with it." (i refer to this part: "Thus you already have quick access to node alignment action")
