I'd like to select a vertex, then select several other vertices and make them somehow aligned with the first one by e.g. Z axis.

Here is example picture of what I have - the highlighted vertices are ones which I'd like to align.

screenshot of selected vertices which should be aligned

If possible can someone explain me how to do it. If it is not, could you provide a good alternative.

The best way is to select the vertices that you want to be aligned. Then press s to scale, press z to constrain to the z-axis. Then type zero and press enter. Then all of the vertices will be "flat" or aligned along the z-axis.

    $\begingroup$ You could also set Pivot Point to Active and select vertex with desired position last. $\endgroup$

You can use the following procedure

  1. Select the whole edge loop (Alt + Select)
  2. Edge Slide (Select + G + G)
  3. Slide whole edge loop to edge you want to align with
  4. With the edge loop still selected grab and place edge loop on any axis.

If you want to select verticies aligned with one original vertex on an axis, first, click Numpad 5 to enter orthographic view. Then consider which axis you want, and click another of the following Numpad values.

Numpad 1: Select on y-axis.

Numpad 3: Select on x-axis.

Numpad 7: Select on z-axis.

Key Z to enter wireframe mode. Lastly, key B and drag your mouse while holding the left button to draw a box around the vertex.
