Align Object needs to be used on an object (i.e. a group of pixels) which is surrounded by transparent pixels. Put your object on it's own layer and run the plugin.

It seems to be working fine after Testing around. Thanks for feedback ?

I do not understand your case. The Align Object effect does work for me. 

 

My case: copy item icon from the sheet, select only meaningful pixels of it, paste the pixels onto map image and move to indicate the correct position of said item. Every time I paste another icon I have to drag the pixels from top left corner by hand to currently centered area. I'm trying to find a way to either paste directly into current center (but not fix in place, as fine adjustment is needed) or to alter paste position with some plugin.

Sample pic attached (de-colored).

Paste each icon into it's own layer with Ctrl + Shift + V, then run the plugin on the layer.

What does the Test checkbox do? I can't seem to figure it out.

 

Well, the tooltips text is wrong. I will change it.
It's about low-opacity pixels which are not visible.
Test's purpose is to reveal these pixels.

Sometimes, around the object of interest these pixels are present and alignments can become confusing for less experienced users.
You can use this check box and Reset position button to see these pixels that lead to an alignment that does not meet user expectations.

To be fair there are at least two other Align plugins....but I agree - this is very well implemented and a favorite of mine too.

@Cointape, xod's Align plugin is found in the Effects menu, not Effects > Object.

 

Follow the above instructions and copy the dll file into the Effects folder.

 

@xod...you should re-word post 1 to reflect where the plugin installs.
