align visible layers...
In the Image menu there is a submenu called "align visible layers...". I don't understand how it works. Collecting works like intended, but the fill operation has no sense to me. Somehow it distributes layers, but it works arbitrary. I don't get what it is really. Doc doesn't help. Finally there is no explanation about the grid size at all.

Anyone knows about the "align visible layers..."?

Well, you already know more about it than me. Keep experimenting.

The grid makes more sense if you apply a bespoke grid to an image. Image -> Configure Grid and use the same grid size in the align layers dialogue.

This before:

and after.

The layers moved to the closest grid position.
The behavior sort of makes sense if you consider that
  • the "fill" is between the edge(s) that you select (top/left, here), and the farthest opposite boundar(ies) of the moved layers (right of red, bottom of green)
  • layers are ordered using their stack order
This menu doesn't work. I've decided not to use it.
