We give an efficient algorithmic characterization of simple polygons
whose edges can be aligned onto a common line, with nothing else on
that line, by a sequence of all-layers simple folds.
In particular, such alignments enable the cutting out of the polygon
and its complement with one complete straight cut.
We also show that these makeable polygons include
all convex polygons possessing a line of symmetry.
