Consider enabling the Move command option “Dynamic Alignment”. When this option is set, symbols can be aligned by their origins, place bound shape edges, or both.
You can also customize the color of the alignment guides by accessing the Display > Color/visibility dialog box and going to the Display tab.
Enabling or configuring this feature can be done from the Setup > User Preferences > Display > Align Guides section or from the Options pane by selecting the Dynamic Alignment option and using the Preferences setting.
By default, the guidelines are configured for component origin. To change the configuration, use the Preferences button in the Options tab and enable the Component Origin or Place Bound variable accordingly.
