remove aligngroup from draw context menu

With ObjectAlign you can align stuff top, bottom, left, right, ... when you select two elements they were align according each other. When you have only one element selected, the selected element get align according to page frame.

In impress, writer, ... it's common to align an element (drawing, image, table, ...) to center but when you draw this element can be dropped in the context menu so that the context menu get one element less.


1. open writer
2. draw a shape or insert an image
3. right click to open context menu
4. use Align submenu

When you align a single object the reference is the page. So left means it is placed at the left margin. 

Despite this fact we should disable functions that are temporarily not available instead of hiding them. 

My take here is WONTFIX.
