Adding guides

Next, you'll create a series of guides to help you position material on the page.

1.
Drag a ruler guide down from the horizontal ruler. Watch the Control palette as you drag, so that you can accurately position the ruler guide so that Y reads 25p6.

When you create guides, you can monitor the guide position on the Control palette or on the ruler opposite the one from which you dragged the guide.


2.
Drag to create three more ruler guides from the horizontal ruler. Position the additional horizontal guides at 49, 53p3, and 58p8 picas.

Note

If the Control palette isn't displaying the ruler increment you want, the current magnification may be causing ruler increments to round off to the nearest pixel. If you zoom in on the page and the Control palette, the rulers will display finer increments.

You created these guides on page 1 because it is the only page that uses this layout. If you wanted to create the same set of guides on all pages, you would have created them on the master pages.

3.
Now is a good time to save your work. Remember to save often, even though this book reminds you only once in a while.
