BTW...I love the way AI implements this...select objects (including key object) > click object you want to be key again > boom, alignment works.Adam Trabold commented
THIS x1000. It's really hard to know which object will be treated as "key object" when you're trying to align elements. Theoretically, you could use the smart guides...but they don't always track the element you're trying to align to, so that doesn't always work.
It would be really helpful...maybe even necessary-level for me...to set your own "key object" (a la Illustrator). Even in PS you opt-click the layer you want to align to, and use that selection to align against. I easily use this a hundred times daily.
