Chapter 35. Margin and Column Guides > How InDesign Handles Margin Guides

How InDesign Handles Margin Guides

Like XPress, the margin and column guides on each document page reflect those on the master page. However, unlike XPress, you can override the margin and column guides on individual document pages. Because of this capability, you have to be aware of whether you’re on a master page or a document page before editing guides; consider locking your guides to prevent unintended modifications (see the previous chapter for more on locking guides).

By default, the margin guides are pink (magenta) and the column guides are violet. That’s why in a normal, one-column document the top and bottom margins appear pink and the left and right margins appear purple (because the column guides are overlapping the margin guides). If you wish, you can change the colors by opening the Preferences dialog box and selecting Guides.
