Instead of trying to align just drag it to where you want it if its line based

I don't speak spanish so I cant really fully follow the parameters you have set up, but I did look the family itself for the beam in question. I think the issue has to do with the family itself. For starters you are using a lot of reference lines. Some have strong references some are weak. In plan view, some of the lines dont seem to overlap the geometry itself. Reference lines aren't like Reference planes. If the line isn't over the geometry, then you cannot snap to it or align to it. I would suggest swapping all those reference lines for reference planes. You might have better results that way. The only time I use reference lines in my families is if the geometer is going to change angle at some point. The rest of the time, I only use reference planes.
