Mmh. Let me check... I'm starting InDesign, opening the Window menu
and, lo and behold, the Align window is there! How confusing.

I'm not saying it makes better sense in InDesign than it does in
Scribus because I don't think it does but you might check your
statistics before posting such light comments here. That 98% probably
corresponds pretty much to the number of people using InDesign over
Scribus for DTP.
