    How to align sketch shapes?

      Example. I have two rectangles and a circle of different sizes. I want to align the smaller rectangle inside the center bottom of the bigger one. Combine them so they become a single sketch so that when I move them around, they stay as one piece. And the circle in the center top. I've found the align toolbar, but it's always greyed out when I select the sketches and shapes.

      If the feature is simply unavailable, is there a method I can use to sketch multiple shapes symmetrically?


      This was my plan of action

      X plane (front)

      Large rectangle

      Medium rectangle aligned to center bottom of larger

           fillet corners and cutout

      Small rectangle aligned to center top. cut out

      protrude etc. .

      I can do it the brute force way and just draw each individual line, but it's too time consuming :/
