If by "aligning" you mean make the leaders line up with each other, you could try moving them around and any dimensions which share a leader will snap to each other. What I do is create snap lines, then move the dimensions onto the lines, etc.

There is an align function. Right in the Annotate tab.

As Don suggested you can use Align dimensions from Annotate group OR select dimensions > Right Click > Align dimensions

You can also add snap lines around a view - this is my preferred way of working.  These allow you to arrange your dimensions evenly, but do not show when you print the drawing.

Typically I set the first line 15 mm from the view boundary, and space the lines at 12 mm intervals.  I generally create more lines than I think I will need (usually 6 in one location, but maybe up to 10 for a complex part or as few as 3 for a small detail view).

You can also select the dimensions, then right-click and select "Clean-up Dimensions".

This will launch the tool to create snap-lines which align the dimensions.
