 Action    name: MakeAlignment
This command allows you to create an alignment directive. The alignment directive will replace a number of useless bytes inserted by the linker to align code and data to paragraph boundary or any other address which is equal to a power of two.

You can select a range to be converted to an alignment directive. If you have selected a range, IDA will try to determine a correct alignment automatically.

There are at least two requirements for this command to work: - there must be enough unexplored bytes at the current address. - an alignment directive must always end at an address which is divisible by a power or two.
